Their sense of smell is around 200x more intense than ours. They are checking out the lay of the land. Actually, it is much safer for your dog to roll up the window sovthat he cannot stick either his head or his whole nose out the window. A bug could actually get stuck in one of his nasal passages and have to be surgically removed. A road rock or bug could hit its eye ( at 70 mph) and do irreparable damage! Sometimes they get too stimulated and will jump out of a speeding car to chase something, not realizing the danger. Yes, it's cute to see their ears flapping in the wind, but you'll have a safer pet if you keep his head inside the car with the window only cracked. Please don't put a loose dog in the back of a pickup either! I think you can figure out why not to do that.

It's true, one time I went to my cousins house to drop off my dog because my family and I were going to go on a long vacation and my dog knew my cousin's dog really well so he jumped out the window... that was open, when we pulled in.

it also can lead to inner ear infections

There are so many smells in the air that people cannot detect... a simple cat fart a dog can smell from miles away.

You have to stop picking dumb Dogs, instead try an exceptionally intelligent breed an Israeli Canaan Dog. If you can't afford one get the next best thing a Carolina Dog.

Agree! I am a TOTAL CAT LOVER! I love ? cats!
Report as
I think cats a jealous because dogs get to for rides and cats just stay home.?
Report as
My cats go for rides all the time. But they are in crates raised on cushions so they can see out the closed window and the crates are seatbelted in so they are secured in case there is a sudden stop or an accident. They are also microchipped incase of loss. You never know!

haha i love cats i agree with all above statements ;)

Haha Why did I enjoy sticking my head out of the car window when I was a little girl? I loved the smell of fresh air and the feeling of cool breeze blowing against my skin. Dogs love the feeling of air being brushed against their cute little faces. Just like how my sister's pup loves to be blown in the face by me. It calms them down too.

It's natural for a Dog to want to sniff the air outside the Car, he is registering the smells so he can find his way home.
