    That looks a death trap to me. A sudden stop or emergency breaking and you will have a pet with a broken neck or worse let the dog travel safely on the floor

    I keep my mutt on the front seat,I just clip his collar onto the seatbelt,I used to always have him in a harness which I know is much safer but now he's figured out how to free himself it all became a bit pointless. I don't have a rear seat or anchor point in the back,it's only ever been a problem in Iberia,pulled twice and he was ordered into the back,the French police only stopped me so they could play with him!

    So a "suitable restraint" is allowed, not just a guard? We use a harness in the back seat and thought that was legally acceptable?

    We don’t have an anchor point in the back and we just have the drivers seat and passengers seat no more anchor points not even a lap belt.

    All the law says is that it must be restrained,most folk here use a guard in est cars or l/rovers,i have seen nutters with dogs hanging out windows in front seats but there taking a chance with there license & insurance should they have a acc.
    All it takes is a simple eye hook bolted through the floor with a spreader plate under it,the type used on t/bars will be the job,cost little.

    A box etc is same for cats also.
    Are you sure about what you have written Trev.?

    Although it is always advisable:- Rule 58 of the Highway Code deals with travelling with pets and states:

    “When in a vehicle make sure dogs or other animals are suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you, or themselves, if you stop quickly. A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog cage or dog guard are ways of restraining animals in cars.”

    Although the Highway Code states this, is there actually a law covering this point, I don't think so?
