Q. What is the best way to travel with a dog in the car?

Larger breeds are best in a harness connected to the seat belt. For small breeds you can use a dog carry case and again secure with seat belt. Dogs should never be in the front seat so in a sedan the back seat is best. Perhaps the ideal is the back of a wagon or van, but for safety it should have a cargo divider to contain the dog.

Dogs should not be allowed to jump around in the car or bark as you drive. Correct these habits right from the beginning.

WARNING: Your dog should never travel on the front seat or the car.
Just like with small children the front airbags have the capacity to seriously injury your dog.

Note 2010: It is illegal in Australia for dogs to be sitting on the lap of the driver.
