Never would have happened for two reasons 1) my dogs ride crated and 2) as a young woman I can't ever imagine a scenario where I'd get out of my vehicle, leave my dog crated inside, and let some random guy get in. I've only been to a few car washes and I do get my oil (and easy stuff) done at the quick lube place every other month but I've never been asked to get out of my vehicle and someone else get in...

Seriously, what is the liability here? UPS, Fed-ex and even our regular mail system has strict protocol for dealing with unknown dogs. I just don't think it's wise business sense to allow your employees to get into vehicles with dogs, especially protection-type dogs, and even more especially when the dog is alone in the car.

Not rocket science

I'm guessing Harley would have jumped out the door and started to explore the car wash having a great time. Annie would more than likely have gone ballistic the minute the guys hand touched the door. Either that or she should would have started the car and drove off, she's like that.

The harnesses make me nervous for highway driving, I don't trust them. Both dogs are always crated for those kinds of trips. Around town I sometimes use the harness but only if I have one dog with me.

Yeah it seems odd...I mean, I'm not really worried about what my dog would do - he would do whatever I told him to, so I'd probably just have him jump out of the vehicle and come to me to be out of the way - but I can't think of why I'd have to get out of my vehicle in the first place unless I was dropping it off for some work (which I have done, with my dog, and we go together into the lobby to drop off the keys).

Hmmm interesting scenario. I use car seatbelts for both dogs, Jazzy sits in the front seat and Delgado gets the backseat. Delgado would stare for sure and bark...Jazzy for sure would get mad and growl which would set Delgado off into a barking and probably lunging fit. I don't think anyone would be able to get in without a huge racket, let alone WANT to get into my car lol

As to leaving the car, I wouldn't allow anyone near my car without me there regardless. I think that was a very stupid thing the attendant did, there are so many things that could have gone wrong. I would have a very long and heated conversation with both him and his manager

I don't think mine would let the employee in the vehicle, if I weren't in it. They're both very territorial of my truck.

One night after training at the gym, I was going to give a friend a ride home, & unlocked the passenger door & walked around the back to the drivers side. My dogs were laying down in the back of the cab (Toyota extra cab pickup), & when my friend opened the passenger side door & went to get in, my male, Koda, stepped into the passenger & started barking at him.

As soon as I opened the drivers side & told Koda it was ok, he stepped back & let the guy in, then proceed to smell him & try to give him kisses.

Hmmm... IF my dogs were in that situation (which would never happen because I keep them crated in the car), Jasper and Dixie would more than likely jump out of the car trying to get to me, and Todd would just stand there and bark at the guy (he hates men/strangers).
