    Scary. Leo does have a car strap that you can slip on/off his harness but hates it so we never actually put him in it but he sits quitely on the back seat. Looking at getting a new strap which will attach to his harness and clip into the seatbelt buckle to give him a bit more room to move when strapped in and more comfy

    I know OM, my whole life our family dogs have travelled on the back seat with no harness or anything. But I can understand why too, have heard of dogs being seriously injured during serious car accidents so.... Ahhh the days of bluey jumping onto the back of the ute for a ride are long gone hey

    I have to admit, I do see the danger also. My uncle had a driver crash into the corner of his house because her dog jumped onto her lap and she lost control of the car....an expensive lesson to learn

    Hi Ozemum,

    A sad lesson to learn as well if the driver of that car had killed your uncle or someone else!

    I personally feel if a dog is not contained in a harness whilst on the back seats, or contained in the rear hatch of a vehicle without the ability to jump through into the rest of the car, one is taking a huge risk.
    Secondly, I don't even start the car unless everybody has their seatbelts on. It seems silly to me to advocate that rule for people, and allow a different freedom for a dog.

    Oh bugger, I'm totally off point again, aren't I?

    Very true, you wouldnt put your kids in the back of the car unbuckled.... we get fined for having (Human) passages in the car unrestrained, why not dogs? It does make alot of sense.

    And I made the choice to go to Coffs this year for summer holidays- taking Leo with us, a somewhat 9hr drive! fabo!

    Lol. At least the dog can't say "are we there yet, Mum?" every 20 minutes.
    Enjoy your holiday.

    Totally OT but that reminded me.

    A dear friend was driving to the NT with her son. I paid him 20 bucks to say are we there yet every hour or so during the few days travel. That bloody woman went about 100kms, stopped, looked at him and said ..Di has paid you, hasn't she. He said yep so she paid him 30 to stop. (he was saving for a pushbike, lol) She said it was worth every cent lol.
