Exclamation Help! Dogs in trucks in Ontario

Ack! I can't seem to find a bylaw. Can someone who knows post a link to whether or not dogs are allowed to be riding in the backs of pick ups in Ontario? Specifically St.Catherines?

Thanks!!

Can't find anything specific for St Catherines however

THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWN OF INNISFIL

3. Provision of Needs

3.6 No person may transport a dog in a vehicle outside the passenger compartment unless it is adequately confined or unless it is secured in a body harness or other manner of fastening which is adequate to prevent it from falling off the vehicle or otherwise injuring itself

I think if you contact the folks below they might be able to help.

I telephoned the Ministry of Transportation and unfortunately it is not against the law to travel with dogs in an open pick up truck however, she said officers will ticket if the dogs are not tethered but she couldn't point me to any legislation that could be relied upon.

My understanding is anyone can ride in the back of a pick-up (no matter how drunk. Trust me on this one, okay? I just know. ) I would think the issue of the dog would be a by-law situation. I don't let Daisy ride in the back of my truck just because a)she could slide around and b)she could jump out. You can by specific dog harnesses for the back of the truck, however. I usually have the tonneau cover on though, so I don't bother.
