    LOL Di_Dee - I would add to this on the tractor or on the motorbike.

    I remember a thread a while back about dogs unrestrained in the back of utes. Not sure about other breeds but working dogs are extremely agile and I never heard of any "falling off" any item of farm machinery, ever. We lived for 15years in beef/dairy country in South Gippsland and the dogs only ever wanted to be where the action was.

    p.s. These guys do not wear doggy jackets, have personal trainers or eat pro-biotic yogurt.

    And the farm dog thing is not an excuse if you have a farm dog. You know, that lives on a farm and gets to do the things that farm dogs do, like work or run around on the farm. This is the suburbs. Where some dogs get to put up with the boring bits of the farm dog life but never get the good bits. That's what I mean by "an excuse". I have no beef with how farmers treat their dogs at all. But there is usually some balance there. Too many dogs in the suburbs are so bored out of their minds all the time...
    Agree with you there.

    A mat makes a lot of difference....I live on a farm, I have always had work dogs. I still do not agree with it. if I treated our cattle and horses or dogs like a lot of farmers do i would not feel comfortable.

    A lot of dogs stay on utes by choice and sometimes it is up to us to move them for their health. We had one kelpie that would stay in the cab of a stinking hot ute and pant heavily and get really hot........He could jump out. We used to have to get him out to protect himself and his devotion to his ute, he just loved the ute cab.......

    I fully support your concerns, those metal trays are like ovens in the sun.


    Also....

    The dog was unrestrained and unsupervised in a public place/workplace for six or so hours.

    Back of a ute, tied up under it on the ground or wherever is irrelevant.

    Just like people that tie up dogs of the footpath when shopping. Or tradies that grab lunch leaving the dog unsupervised in the tray.

    I take it you have animal control people at your workplace Beloz? I would consider welfare and legal obligations lacking by the owner. If they return, then perhaps contact a ranger.

    I tie up our dog on the footpath when shopping. What's wrong with that?

    I don't like the idea that someone could do something to my dog while I am not there.

    In my mind, it's a two way street Crested.

    I want my dog safe as well as the public safe from potential attack.

    They could be taken, kids can run up, poke an eye or startle the dog into a reaction. IMO no one can be absolutely sure that their dog is bullet proof in this regard.
    People do this in my small country town and kids run up to them to pat them.

    I do it at our local shops. Never longer than about 10 mins. I usually tie her up so I can see her from the register. It is actually illegal in the ACT. And I know lots on here don't agree with doing it. I understand the risks, but lots of people do it here and I personally like it. I like that the dogs are included in these every day life activities. And I see plenty of parents at the shops take the opportunity to use them to teach their kids about dogs.

    But that is my opinion and I respect that not everyone will agree with that.
