    Default Unloading a dog

    How do you go about reducing the chance of injuries when unloading a dog out of the pickup. The obvious is don't let them jump. I've been around guys who would unload by the collar and never really paid attention to how it was done. Is there a technique that works best. How about on video?

    Don’t let mine jump out at all any more—to many injuries-not mine thank goodness but others-
    Mine both have both have learned to wait—
    One arm under their neck chest area hand between front legs —the other just in front of rear legs

    Mine are labs-70-80 lbs.—
    When dirty or muddy same way!!—if afraid or a little mud dirt —take up chess-get a pedicure-and try aroma therapy—

    I use a Dogs up Ramp all the time. With our training schedule my dogs get in and out of the truck constantly. Theses ramps are super light weight, durable, and come in many lengths.

    Past Golden Ret., blind at 8 yrs. could walk a 2x10 plank from the dock to the door of a Beaver float plane. The incline was about 30 degrees - he didn't want to be left behind!

    I don't use a plank with my Yukon...but believe it's a good idea for a pickup, as they are higher.

    Saw them at PF and they are well made, light and the best I've seen.

    Here is what I use. Nice because they slide together and just throw back into the truck. Foolish to let a dog jump out of the truck or in a truck. I think more injuries occur jumping up into the truck versus jumping down.
