Are Car Restraints for Dogs Just One Big Farce?

It seems so: A recent test shows popular brands utterly failed in crashworthiness. So now what?

I never understood the need to take a dog into a car. PetsMart and Petco, allow you to bring your dog into their stores. SO, people feel the need to bring their dog shopping with them.
I can't tell you how many near fights I have witnessed between dogs, dogs that had to be returned to the car, small children who were innocently nuzzled by a dog because the owner was not watching, and the child became hysterical.
I wish pet food stores would rethink their policy. Sorry if this went slightly off topic.

Can you imagine the uproar if companies produced child restraints that failed crash tests?! Every type of restraint should have to pass stringent safety laws.

Noted. Thanks, Cher.
