Driving with a dog

Johann The Dog: Dog safety in cars!

This is a great article about restraining a dog while in a car. Right now we put Finn in a harness when we take him out. Needless to say the best way to transport a dog is by walking. If it is an option it's good for everyone involved for all the obvious reasons.

Walking not only eliminates the need for a harness but it also lessen the temptation to leave a pup in the car while you "quickly run in" somewhere. Recently this happened in Toronto and was picked up by a local blogger. For those of you who only know Fahrenheit numbers, 70 Celsius is about 158 Fahrenheit. Leaving a pet in a car like that is not only cruel it's just plain stupid.

Here is a wonderful site about Pet/Car safety.
