I got the idea for this thread from another one I replied to and wanted to know if any of you think there is ever any excuse to not secure a dog in a car while driving. For example if you are driving at night by yourself and have a dog that you know will at least provide the physical deterrant . The common sense idea is to avoid situations like that,but things do happen that are unplanned and sometimes you have to take that detour. I've personally never done this,because I haven't thought about it in that way until now
,besides I don't think a 9 year old 30lb dog is too intimidating.
