DOGS in Wales need to buckle up.
Every year in Wales, dogs are killed or seriously injured in car accidents because they were not wearing dog seat belts. For years many people have believed it is perfectly acceptable to have dogs moving freely within in a vehicle whilst it is on the move. If a vehicle with unrestrained dogs is then involved in an accident the animals can be thrown through the windscreen causing death and serious injuries to both the animals, drivers and even other road users who are then caught up in the collision. You wouldn’t let your children get away not fastening their seatbelts, so please make sure your dogs are kept safe and are buckled in with purpose-built dog seatbelts.
