At the risk of being considered a pet pamperer, I have a dog seat/restraint system for my dog. Although he is a 30 pounder, he has short legs, so can't see much out of the window.
I ordered it on-line. It is a platform om which he can sit or lie down, and he wears a halter that came with it that is well padded. There is a belt system to which the halter fastens. Of course, the platform attached to a people seat belt.
When I had the huskies, I had an attachment that went from the seat belt to their halters. Anybody that would try to drive with two loose huskies has a warped sense of adventure/
In the case of sudden stops. my dogs could become missles if not restrained. And I don't like seeing dogs with their heads stuck out of a window (as fun as it may be) , as there is a danger to their eyes from debris.
I do know of dogs that sit nicely, but they could still become missles.
My state considered a law against dogs riding in the bed of pick-up trucks without being restrained. However, this went no where.
May as well confess that my dog has 2 Land's End Squall jackets. They are, however, for me. He doesn't mind snow or rain, but when his fur gets wet it tangles badly, so it makes life easier for me to keep him as dry as possible.
I don't know about having a law, either. We have a law for people, but too many don't comply. We recently lost 6 teenagers in 2 separate cratches. The 7th was the only one tro survive - and he was wearing a seat belt.
