Driving Laws with Dogs

Browsing social media pages this morning, I came across a post – by a veterinary surgery, in actual fact – showing a picture of a dog with its head out of a moving vehicle; ears flapping, tongue lolling. The post drew attention to the unseasonably warm weather and how dogs love to hang their heads out of car windows – before asking for pictures of people’s dogs doing just this. But, is this really a sensible thing to allow your dog to do and is it even legal? What are the UK’s driving laws when it comes to travelling with yours in a vehicle?4Dogs finds out at our sister site.
