My folks don't have a kennel, crate, carrier, harness, or anything useful for traveling with the small dogs that they've had throughout my life up
She's not a very well trained dog. Her previous owner raised her to be a lazy, pompous *****. She's 15 years, and well, flying through the
windshield could really only be a promotion, or improvement to her phsyical, mental, and social demeanor.
(I am half-kidding, just for the record. I do not like nor condone cruelty towards animals). I just really can't see the need for restraining her
now. At least, my parents who own and seem to love her completely and unconditionally don't seem to care that she's unrestrained in any given
vehicle she transports in.
In anycase, I do believe that restraining your pets in the car is wise. I might be keen to rig a harnes with the leash and seat belt the next time I
am summmoned to a shi tzu transport task mission unpossible.
