    Question Bullies in the car

    Hey guys! I'm not sure if this was the right place to post this question or not but here goes. Murray and I are in the car quite a bit and when he was smaller I had a crate which he has now outgrown but his home crate is really too big for the car so I got him a special round shaped bed and put that in the passenger seat and for a while he was doing well with it but now he kind of gets restless and sometimes tries to come over and sit on on my lap and he's 33 pounds and while any other time I don't mind but it doesn't seem like a good idea in the car. Would love to know- what do you do with your bully when you're in the car? Looking forward to hearing your responses 😀 CC

    There are doggie seat belts that you can get so that he will stay in his seat. Some come with harness that can be used outside of the car also.

    For the same reason as for us humans I advice to get a harness and a seatbelt for the car. Also riding in the back seat may be better than in the front.

    My plan is far from ideal but if I use a short leash and a carabiner and wrap it around the head rest in the car. It gives them a little room to move around but not be able to get to my seat. If I take 2 dogs I put one in the front and one in the back seat. I really need a car restraint but I haven't gotten one yet. We've been taking a lot of trips to the vet so we've been going out of town and I'm paranoid about having an accident. Maybe I should look at buying one today. Thanks for the reminder thread!

    Harlea will be in her harness and we have a leash that we tied a double loop knot on and we put the seat belt through the loop and secure it. It is long enough to give her free movement of the back seat but not enough to come up front.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    We got a harness and a doggy seat belt clip for ours , If a dog is on your lap and there is a accident the air bag will kill him/her, could also cause you to not to steer out of trouble to avoid a accident , one more thing a dog in a back seat unrestrained comes forward at the speed you are traveling , think about that and what could take place . We have a Cane Corso he is app 101 lbs our bullies are app 65 lbs thats a lot of dog coming forward with only the back of a seat , you or a windshield to stop them . No Offense meant at all but better for all that they are restrained in the back seat .
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    I agree with Julie and Rikka, keeping them in the back of the vehicle is right.

    The very best thing is to find a crate that's large enough to fit on the floor in the back of the car/truck. To many bad things can happen if they are in the front seat.

    Well Brutus sits like a little gentleman for the whole ride. I trained him this way from a pup. Frankie on the other hand was never taught car manners and is a complete beast in the car. He gets a crate in the back of the SUV for his saftey and ours.

    We had a harness plus seat belt solution when Castor was little but he learned how to unbuckle the seat belt, so now he is in a car safety crate in the back of the car. It's really important to have the dog safely crated or harnessed as it may otherwise not only get hurt but hurt other creatures in the car if there is an accident; according to a brochure for the Swedish society for road safety, a 30 kilo dog becomes a projectile of 1200 kilos at 50 km/h and 3840 kilos at 90 km/h.
