Keep dogs safe with seatbelts

Every year in Belfast, dogs are killed or seriously injured in car accidents because they were not wearing dog seatbelts.

For years, many people have believed it is perfectly acceptable to have dogs moving freely within a vehicle while it is on the move.

If a vehicle with unrestrained dogs is involved in an accident, the animals can be thrown through the windscreen, causing death and serious injuries.

You wouldn't let your children get away with not fastening their seatbelts, so please make sure your dogs are kept safe and are buckled-in with purpose-built dog seatbelts.
