Harnessing dogs is a better idea

Dogs in the back of pickup trucks deserve better treatment

A couple of days ago I talked to a man about the dog in the back of his truck. I said if he came to a sudden stop, the dog would go flying and come to a sudden stop by the collar around its neck, killing it. The guy said ‘don’t worry, I’m a good driver.’ Doesn’t he know that in an accident it’s always the other driver’s fault?

When I was at the vet’s office, I heard of two dogs that came in from this. Dog harnesses exist that don’t go around dogs’ necks.

Dogs trust and depend on us. They think everything we do is right. Let’s not break this trust and their necks. Please use a car harness instead of a neck collar.
