Safety in the car
Did you know that driving with an unrestrained dog in the car can increase your chance of an accident and if you do have an accident, you and your dog are at a higher risk of injury?
Whether it be a quick trip to the vet or a long holiday drive, there are a few things you can do to make your car ride safe and comfortable for both you and your boxer!
The official Victorian Road Rules state that you cannot drive a vehicle:
Here at Boxer Rescue Victoria, I crate train every dog that comes through my front door and I do this for multiple reasons.
I first started 3 yrs ago with Ziva ( now Edie) a boxer girl that came into rescue with her 7 x 2.5 week old pups , Ziva was one very damaged, stressed girl who had severe separation anxiety. And I mean severe, she would go through a window to find you and it didn't matter that she had a house full of dogs to keep her company, she wanted her human.
Ziva loved her crate and would grab her favourite toy of the day and would put herself in there as soon as I was ready for work.
