Restrain dogs in cars

Tasmania Police has reminded dog owners of Section 16 of the Dog Control Act which indicates that an owner or person in charge of a dog must restrict the dog sufficiently while it is in or on a vehicle so that it cannot leave the vehicle or attack any person/animal outside the vehicle.

This section refers only to dogs and does not describe or suggest how a dog must be restricted or restrained. An example would be a dog travelling in the rear of a utility appropriately restrained with a lead or a dog restricted to the caged area of a SUV hatch.
