Today’s PetMeds spotlight is on something that isn’t usually spoken about, seat-belts for dogs. One of the reasons I think that it is left unspoken, is that who could deny a dog putting it’s head out the window to enjoy the ride?
While I am one of these people, and I have written before on the safety of the driver when pets are in the car, but I wanted to take a second to talk about the safety of the pet in case of an accident.
There are harnesses for dogs with a place for the seat-belt through the back that would allow for the dog to still enjoy the breeze and keep you company. Next time your running around town on errands, keep in mind that while, “Safety, is no accident”, they can still occur, and keeping your pet from becoming a projectile within the vehicle is the safest way to go.
