The transport of dogs in a car is subject to legal regulations. Simply seating it on the rear bench is not only forbidden but also rather dangerous. Below you will find some tips how it works.
The correct transport of dogs is subject to legal regulations. But it is not only necessary to follow the rules; it is also the dog owner’s own interest that his pet is transported safely. There is not only the horror scenario of an accident that provides food for thought. If you want to protect your car, keep it clean and free of damages, safe transport is also of great importance. Furthermore, bear in mind that animals are often not able to cope with traffic events and show some nervous and excited behaviour.
The possibly most important reason: the legislator has a narrow view on this. Animals must in no case hinder sight in the car! This is specified in the road traffic regulations. Discussions do not help. This means that your dog must not move freely in the car as this could also cause a high risk of injury to people and animals if an accident happens. In case of emergency, a non-secured pet can also attack rescue people and thus endanger rescue work and emergency care.
