How do I protect my dog from a new car?
The best way to protect your car interior from your dog is to set up a dog hammock over your back seat. This will prevent your dog from scratching your car upholstery, leaving muddy paw prints or getting shedded hair everywhere. Alternatively, use a car side door cover, a boot protector or a dog booster seat.
Where should a dog sit in the car?

What’s the law on dogs Travelling in cars?

Should a dog be in a crate in a car?
It is recommended to keep a crate in your car for the dog, complete with the bedding, so the crate is always ready to go. The crate should be in the back if you drive an SUV, or safely in the back seat of your car, never in the front seat for the same reason you don’t put children there. Even if the dog is whining etc.
How do you put a crate in a car?
Be sure to put the crate lengthwise on the back seat. You must thread the seatbelt or a shoulder harness through the safety straps which are sewn on the crate. Once you are done, pull and tighten the belt and ensure that it “clicks” into the buckle. Pull the strap once again to figure out if it is already snug.
How can I secure my dog with a leash?
Secure the leash by tying it to a handle on the ceiling or wrap around headrest. Tie the leash tight enough so that your dog can’t jump into the front seat but keep it loose enough so that your dog can stand if the car stops suddenly and your dog falls to the floor.
