Safe rides 4 dogs

Go for a ride?

“Go for a ride.” These words sound so sweet to our dogs. Of course, they love to have their nose out the window smelling the world that is speeding. But your dog needs a seatbelt or to ride safely in a tied down pet safe crate. specially  if they must ride in an open truck bed. California law and public safety states that dogs in truck beds must be cross tied though their harnesses to each side of the truck. An acceptable alliterative inside to secured each dog inside a dog crate rated for vehicle transport. Each crate must be firmly tied down for the weight of the crate plus the dog and will not come lose in the case of a traffic accident.

Please don’t let your dog ride loss in the back of a truck. I have watched a dog flip and hit the street as a mini truck driver hit his breaks, luckily the dog was not hurt (that time).

Not safe for dogs to ride.

Dog time is longer than people time.

“It has been estimated that at least 100,000 dogs die each year when (accidentally) tossed from pickup trucks, For your dog’s safety, don’t let it ride in the back of an open pickup truck. Even if it isn’t killed, it could be lost and you might not even know where it fell out.”

”In Pickups-A Bad Idea” The Humane Society of Utah’s website.

Also please read my page for safety tips, laws and resources “Dogs die falling off pickup trucks>”

This is a Blow Paws Wordless Wednesday so please visit these other pet blogs. Some featuring cats  and other small or pocket pets who are going for a ride.

Scary for the dog, scary for other drivers too.

Why let a dog ride where a child cannot?
Loose in a truck bed is deadly for dogs. It’s also against the law.

This is a Blog Paws blog hop.

  1. We learned our lesson! Now I have a small Jack Russell. She rides in her carrier when in the car. It is safer for her as well as the driver. I would hate for her to interfere with whoever is driving the car and cause an accident. I believe she is better protected in her carrier, too.

  2. Years ago, we would allow our Collie to ride in the back of the truck. Then, one day, we had to stop quickly, she flew threw the open back window. Thankfully she wasn’t hurt. That was the last time we did it. Better to have them inside the car with the humans where you can control things.

    1. Thanks for your comment and how your experience changed the way you cared for your dog.

      Thank goodness for the person who invented seat belts for people and carseats for babies and toddlers. I believe the next step is to have all living beings belted in. Lose pets slam out windows, through windshields and under drivers feet. Do consider crating or at least fastening your dog into a seatbelt that snaps into a human seatbelt.

  3. Too many people don’t ride with they dogs safe and secure in the car. I hold my breath when I see a small dog on the drivers lap with the window down. Talk about playing russian roulette. Thanks for taking the time to write this post.

    1. Thanks Paul, we see it too. Both the pic of the boxer and the two shepherd dogs were both in Sonoma County. Too bad I’m not a cop or sheriff, I’d pull them over and take their dogs away, leaving them with a fat ticket. hehe
