I like having Tito beside and he loves watching out the window when I've got errands to run.The other day I had to stop quickly , I heard a thud behind me.My first thought was Tito had fallen and my heart skipped a beat til I realized he was asleep in the seat next to me.So I really need a safety seat so Tito and I both can enjoy our outings.Where do I get one and who makes them better yet do they work?????

A dog can be hurt in a crash going as slow as 30 miles an hour-or at least that is what I have read. I would go to a big pet store and look for belts to secure them in the back seat as an air bag can hurt them.

The really good pet stores have little carriers that hook over the back of the seat and have a means for belting your dog into the carrier. These are very effective for the enjoyment of the ride for the dog and keeping your dog safe in the event of an accident.

Get a car booster seat! They make them for little dogs to look out the window, while still being safely strapped in the car. Here's one at Petsmart for $50. www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2755176
