One way to help protect your dog in the car is to keep them in the back seat with a dog car barrier. A dog car barrier helps to keep your dog or dogs from distracting the driver. A dog in the car can be as much as, if not more than, a distraction as talking on the cell phone or trying to text while driving. A dog car barrier can also keep the dog from becoming a dangerous projectile to other passengers in the car in the event of a car accident. If something as simple as a tissue box can turn into a deadly projectile, imagine what a heavy dog can do. There is still a risk of your dog being ejected from a side or back window, but since most ejections are through the front of the car a dog car barrier may help. There is also still a risk of your dog escaping from a broken window during a car accident. But if a dog seat belt is not an option, a dog car barrier provides some protection and is better than having no protection at all.
