Trucks Can’t Help Hot Dogs Says Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers - By Marian Harding
Every summer we see dogs at Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers that arrive in the back of pickup trucks. “While these aren’t the world class prize-winning show dogs we are known for, it concerns us none the less,” says Marian Harding, owner of Hardinhaus Miniature Schnauzers.
It’s very dangerous, and in some states even illegal, to drive with a dog in the back of a pickup truck. People always seem to think that the dog will enjoy the ride and that it cools a hot dog off. That is simply not true and is especially dangerous for small dogs like miniature schnauzers. Not only can flying debris cause serious injury, but a dog may be unintentionally thrown into traffic if the driver suddenly hits the brakes, swerves, or is hit by another car. According to Hardinhaus.com dogs should ride either in the cab or in a secured crate in the bed of the truck. Dogs and trucks make great companions as long as safety is the first consideration.
