why wasn't your dog either seat belted in or behind a safety screen? ydi just be glad you didn't cause a major accident
#5: My dog has a seatbelt, and it is for both her benefit and for mine. I don't have to worry about her getting in trouble while I'm driving, and it's saved her a few times when I've had to slam on my brakes because of some moron on the road. Anything not tied or belted-in turns into a projectile in the case of an accident. Everyone should have a seatbelt for their dog.
I didn't know doggy seat belts were a thing... O.o but, I do TOTALLY get why they are a necessity. My best friend's dog almost died once from falling off the seat when her boyfriend had to slam on the brakes :( he was a little dog, so she wasn't worried about him being an issue when she was driving... He just had a hard time staying on the seat, unless he was in her lap...
While in most cases dog car harnesses are ridiculous overkill clearly this OP hasn't done a great job training this dog, so a dog harness probably wouldn't have been a bad idea. OP deserves the ticket, if one was written though, there's no excuse for failure to control.
totally agree, having a dog unrestrained in the car is very irresponsible. either a dog seat belt, a crate, or a screen will do it. the dog is less likely to be injured in an accident, and you're less likely to kill someone in a road accident cos you couldn't bother to restrain your dog. you wouldn't leave kids loose in a car, why does it make sense to leave the dog loose?
As you experienced on your own, an animal should be restrained in the car (transport cage). It is safer for both the driver and the animal. Hope you are fine.
It doesn't matter if you have trained your dog to sit on the seat and stay put. If you get in an accident, or have to slam on the breaks really fast, your dog can be seriously injured. We are "trained" to stay put in the seat, and we still need to be restrained. Why not a dog?
Why did you have to open your car door to do all this? The bite marks were on your neck, so you could have just leaned forward to show the officer the marks through the open window. Also, once he got close enough, he probably could've easily seen the dog through the windows of the car. Opening the door next to a road seems unnecessary. Still, losing a dog is awful, I hope you find you find him/her.
