Now that wagon season is in full swing I feel that the UrbanBulldog should offer a public service announcement regarding wagon safety.
Sure, Sherbert looks cute, cute, cute in her Radio Flyer, but we have taken some precautions regarding her comfort & safety.
First, I added a two-inch thick piece of foam to the bed of the wagon. This is for comfort, but also so she can get in/out easier and can see out better. I covered the foam with polar fleece.
Next, Dan rigged up a wonderful leash-like system so Sherbert can’t jump out should she suddenly become interested in other dogs or cats. This was accomplished by screwing two eye hooks on either side of the inside of the wagon. He attached a piece of rope and a clasp between the two hooks.
Now, we just position the wagon near the edge of the deck, pull off the back of the wagon’s guardrails, and let Sherbert hop in…some hops are more graceful than others.
Then we attach the clasp to her collar and she’s set. There’s enough slack on the rope that she can lay down if need be, but not enough that she can turn around and around and cause a mess of things.
