AskPatty's Tips for Driving with Dogs -- Tip #8


DON’T: Let dogs ride loose in pickup truck beds.

The hot metal can burn a dog's paws, the sun and flying debris can hurt the dog, the dog can accidentally be thrown out of the truck if the brakes are suddenly applied, and the dog can jump out if scared or upon seeing something interesting to chase.

Instead, use a crate to create a safer space for your dog if you can't fit the dog inside the truck cab.
