chihuahuas are actually dangerous when it comes to driving. if they were to go on the drivers lap they could easily go below them and mess with their gas and brake pedals.

#16 i dont have dogs, but i did drive with a cat...my grandmother raised it since it was 3 weeks old, so it didnt want to be away from its mother, so it spent the 6 hour drive crawling all over her shoulder, in front of her face, down by her feet, through the steering wheel, and across the dashboard. it finally settled down on the dash right above the steering wheel. thank goodness my grandmother is tall, dumb cat was blocking even my view. id imagine a dog is worse...i dont like dogs all that much, so i tend not to spend much time with them, especially in an enclosed vehicle.

My cat did that too at beginning of my cross country trek. He got the hint when I put him in his carrier. Let him out again, and he chilled out in my partially open suitcase. So I had most of a cat left on my clothes (he's a fluffy one), but better than an accident!

First off, a well-educated dog won't make any trouble when driving. If your dog is giving you a hard time, you're doing it wrong. Second, there's seatbealts for dogs. Even if your dog stays where he should be, using those seatbelts is a good idea in case of accidents. Third, if your car permits, putting the dog into the trunk with a divider installed is also a good option. There's nothing to be understanding about here. OP endangered himself and others by not taking the necesarry precautions, and that's his own fault.

Not to mention, the dog should be restrained. If the OP had crashed the car, the poor dog probably would have gone straight through the windshield. :(

In Alberta, Canada there is a distracted driving law that includes this. Dogs aren't allowed in the front seat without being restrained. $172 fine.

38 you are very right. I just read a news article today about a dog being thrown through a windshield and killed in a car accident in my area :(

It depends on the dog, 22. Your dog just seems to enjoy a nice car ride with the breeze and doesn't sound hyper. OPs dog, on the other hand, is too crazy to ride in a car without a seatbelt or being put in the back seat.

#22 My dog looks shattered when I don't give her chocolate, when I don't let her run into traffic and when I tell her off for shitting in the house. But I have to do those things, because y'know, I'M THE OWNER! I'm responsible for keeping her safe, regardless of whether she wants it or not. Not restraining a dog while it's in the car IS extremely irresponsible, and I hope you never have to deal with your dog flying through the windshield if you were ever in an accident.

When I was ten my seventeen year old brother took me, and our dogs, out for a nice ride through what we considered "country." There were few cars, some cattle ranches, and a lot of small farms. I was holding our small dog in my lap. The other dog, Bruce, was a big lab who liked "doing what dogs do" out the back window. We didn't bother restraining him since he never bothered getting into the front seat. Someone's goats got out of their backyard and ran across the street. My brother slammed on the breaks, hit mud, and went down into a ditch, causing us to roll. Bruce got under the truck and was crushed, with his back legs nearly severed. One of the guys who lived in the house next to our crash came out and saw what happened and shot Bruce in the head. The smaller dog had a broken rib because I held on to her too tightly. So, yeah, keep your dog unrestrained and see what happens.
