Do you practice car safety with your dogs?

Here's one I'm curious about. Does anyone's dog wear a seatbelt, or have those barrier things in the car so in the case of an accident, the dog can't get launched through the windshield?

Ellie comes to work with me which means she rides in the car every day. I don't want to take any chances, so she wears this harness and the seatbelt loops through the back of it so she's secure in her seat.

Does your dog wear a seatbelt?

Right now rides on the lap/floor board.

Once he's older he'll ride in the back of the pickup or back seat..in the SUV he'll ride in the cargo area.

My shihtzu's do fine without any restraints. They rarely go in the car anyway. On loooong rides, they are crated. My GSD will use a seatbelt harness as soon as her growing stablizes. I dont want to have to buy a new size every month or so. And because of airbags she will, unfortunatly, be harnessed in the back seat.

Mine ride in the cargo area in my SUV.

I'll probably have a pick up truck soon, and they will have to ride in crates in the back.

Hondo gets car sick, so he gets to ride in a crate.
