: Don't want to crate your dog while driving?

I had been looking for this video for a while after seeing it at work. It shows what can happen in an accident if you are not wearing a seat belt. The same thing could happen with a dog or other animal.

Keep them crated for them and for you! I'd love to hear what you guys think.

Thanks for pointing this out. Dogs should be seat-belted in, or their crates should be seat-belted in, otherwise they are not only a hazard for humans but their lives are very much at risk even in a slight collision. SURVIVOR is a really good brand of dog vehicle restraint. Pricey, but safe.

Thanks! I really like his video because most people think its ok because they are good drivers. This is one way to show how things out of your control can happen with little notice.

Happy Dog E-ing

I think that wasn't her dog in the movie...I mean he looked like he could have been, but probably her boyfriend.

Well there Kayakin' Dan as he lives and breathes. And to think I thought you were gone.

I am pretty certain that I am going to purchase an '06 Ex-P. And I really like the idea that I will be able to crate the dogs instead of just harnessing them into the car.

By the way, would someone please tell me the difference between Ex and Ex-P?

TIA,

Sue

The "P" is for Painted exterior body panels.

Never! Just not much new happens over here in Element land. My biker board is a lot more fun. Where you been anyway?

I've heard about Colin and his closet. Not that there's anything wrong with that!
