Would you transport a dog this way?

Looking at storage boxes for my B, i came across this video for another brand of box.

To my horror, about 2 minutes in, I discovered that they were using it to transport pets. I suppose the miserable woman in the video didn't want to get the interior of her nice BMW messed up with pet hair or dirt.

Check it out:https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=3cIUmQGp3w0

At 4 mins, she pulls out a baby stroller. Can't tell if she put the baby in there too.

Is it me, or does anyone else find this appalling?

There is a reason for a rear bumper..... Family dog is not a good substitute.

It was nice of her to open the vents for the shepherd after the trip. Less carbon monoxide that way I suppose. Not something I can imagine doing, but some people are less humane than their pets.

No way! The dual exhaust would kill a dog if the external heat didn't kill em first!

Plus she parked on the lawn...I don't like that either.

OMG, totally appalling. I couldn't watch the entire video. Someone should lock her in the box and see how she likes it at highway speeds. Some people are total morons.

In that pair of dogs, the poor Black&White really wanted out of that undersized cage badly! Yep, just try putting Rover back into that box again. Ain't gonna happen!

Apparently the Europeans don't think of their dogs the way we do, and their legal system is much more forgiving of animal cruelty.

I'd put her in there first. My dogs can ride in the BMW.

It was atrocious.

That video appears to be from 2010 and I have no clue what country it came from but it is unbelievable.

The two pups together both were shell shocked when she opened the lid.

Sarah-the last half showed luggage, so you didn't miss anything....

Safety considerations aside, jumping from that high up for a smaller dog, even larger ones, is still not good. Aside from them being totally put in an isolation chamber not even large enough to hardly breathe in, I would NEVER put one of my babies in harms way like that.

The company that built that needs to get some new advertising out. If its still in business that is....

Well. let me put it this way.. Back in Detroit, I have a friend, Mac.. now Mac ... IS the man who can comment on that kind of video (Which I did not bother watching your comments were good enough)

He is an investigator for the Humane Society.

I would not do it, but I can't say it is cruel, not much different than a dog in a crate in the back of a pickup truck.
Plenty of ventilation in that box for the dog.
There is no danger of exhaust gases hurting it.
Nothing cruel, or inhumane about it, but it does speak to the individual humans regard for their animal.
I would never buy the product, because my dogs ride with me, and I do not fly them as cargo either.
Probably would not care much for a person who hauls their animal like that either
If anyone owns a dog, and is that afraid of getting hair in their car, or home, then they do not need to own a furry pet.
But still, it is not cruel, or inhumane, just seems rather uncaring.

I can't agree with you Jerry. In a pickup at least the dog is between the axles and above the road debris. Hanging out back like that on a cantilever, the poor dog is literally going to have the crap shaken out of it, not to mention fumes, dust & dirt and in the summer, the heat baking up off of the road. Very cruel and uncaring in my opinion.

How is it different from these dog haulers???
Perception is not reality.
Then horse trailers are cruel?

Unacceptable!

The box on the bumper is very different from a kennel truck, trailer or horse carrier.

Exhaust fumes are the biggest red flag for me. But even the airlines required that a dog can stand and turn around in a crate for flying...

Safe travels to you all and your fur babies!
