Isn't it amazing that the dogs of the rich and famous can "use the bathroom" according to the linked article.

Apologies, I should have added 'in a small two-seater' to the relavant sentence. But I will take the same approach for any four to six-seater, although the risk can be mitigated a lot better in the latter types. As has been mentioned, in this particular case the dog restricts the flight controls, is able to seriously distract or hinder the PIC and being unrestrained, could become a 'loose object' with a significant bit of inertia in case of a high-energy event.

What makes you think the dog enjoys the ride, especially if they go “weightless”?

Ha ha ha.

You have a seatbelt but the dog doesn’t.

Anything for views…
