How big is your dog? Just be thankful you did not crash your car.
Your dog was riding the seat? Why wasn't he riding IN the seat? No wonder you got distracted.
#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.
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.
You should have know better then to let your dog ride with you in the front. These things will happen..
They do make stuff that can buckle a dog into the passenger seat so exactly this won't happen. I suggest looking into that.
#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.
You guys must live in the city. Absolutely no one around here has a fucking dog seat belt. There isn't enough vehicles on the road around here to even be worried about an accident unless you hit a tree or something to that matter. It ain't like I drive around with him in the bed of the truck. He sits in the back seat, doing what dogs do. I don't parade him around, I take him to get ice cream and head back home. If you get in that many accidents you'd probably be better off walking in the first place.
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.
