Weimaraner Care Info: Cars

Weimaraner care has many aspects you need to consider. Caring for your dog and making sure he is safe and happy is something that you need to do regardless if your dog is indoors or outdoors. For instance, one of the most dangerous places for your dog is the car.

Your dog likely enjoys car rides, but did you know that not properly securing him in the car could lead to potential disastrous situations? Did you know that when your dog is not properly strapped in he could be flung from the car in the case of an accident and killed? To prevent this unfortunate situation from ever occurring, you need to put weimaraner care into action and get your dog a seat belt.

A doggie seat belt, also known as a car control strap, is designed like a leash. It is a short adjustable handle-like leash that attaches easily to your dog’s harness and keeps your dog secure while you drive. You will find that the seat belt comes in many different colors for you to choose from.

If you have never heard of weimaraner care in regards to a seat belt, you may have a few questions. Therefore, the following are a few common questions and answers that may help educate you on this matter:

Can your dog move around when wearing a seat belt?
Yes. Your dog will be able to freely sit, stand or lie down. Essentially your Weimaraner can do anything he would normal do on a seat without falling or becoming projectile.

Does one size fit all dogs?
No. Your dog will need to be sized for the right seat belt to ensure both his comfort and safety. Therefore, you will need to size your puppy, and then resize him again when he becomes an adult.

Can I put my dog in the front seat?
This is not recommended. If you believe in Weimaraner care, you should never take the risk of strapping your dog in the front seat, as an air bag can be lethal to your dog. Stick him in the back seat, where it is safer for him.

How does the seat belt attach to the car?
Different seat belts may have their own instructions. Therefore, follow them carefully. However, what you will likely discover is that there is more than one clip on the seat belt harness that allows you to attach the seat belt to give your dog different mobility. For instance, if you attach the hook on the belt that is closest to the harness, you are only allowing your dog the option to lie down.

Where can I find a seat belt for my dog?
You can either speak to your Vet to receive a good recommendation, or you can visit your local pet store that deals in weimaraner care. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, and don’t forget to measure your dog.
