It usually takes us welcoming a new foster dog into our home to realize there are some things we take for granted.
Like knowing how to ride nicely in a car.
You may have seen these dramatic Facebook photos of Miss M getting squished since foster dog Feeney didn't know how to ride in the car.
We were trying to think back to what we did to teach our pups to ride nicely in the car.
The pups used to be unrestrained which allowed them to go wherever they wanted in the car:
Our pups have been wearing seat belts for a few years, and we originally liked the Petbuckle Pet Harness, though we found that the RC Pet Products vest/harness seatbelt is actually much easier to put on them.
(Mr. B is wearing the original seatbelt and Miss M is wearing the harness vest in the photos below). The pet seat belts can be hooked through the car seatbelt, but we like using the Kwik Connect Tether to clip them in.
We love that the seat belts can keep them in place. Or in Miss M's situation, Mr. B's place:
we got them doggles.
Side benefit: They brighten peoples' mornings as they see them drive by.
