I have an SUV, I teach all my dogs to put their front feet "up", and go from there..This helps when they get older as well, and they maybe can't jump up into my vehicle,,then I give them a boost.
I also make mine WAIT, when I open that back door, hold them by the collar or harness whatever I have on them and guide them down without them having to "pound" on their front.
If you've ever done agility, A frames are the worst, for a dog to take a beating on their front end..
It IS about common sense, ever see a dog come flying out of the back of an suv and do a "face plant"? hit ice maybe, and screw up their front/shoulder??
What's the big deal with trying to keep them from injuring themselves?
