The good folks at Orvis have put together a handy infographic, spelling out the current laws in each state concerning how you can transport your dog. Some states like New Jersey and Rhode Island require a harness or crate, while others do not. In some states, there are laws proposed, while others have had their proposals fail in the legislature. Finally, some states have other laws such as those governing distracted driving, that can be used to cite you if you have your dog loose in the car. Do you know what your state requires?
The graphic is too interactive to post it easily here, but you can check it out over on the Orvis site.
Happy Friday eve!
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
