Although this could have been a very dangerous situation for the animal it was rather amusing. If nothing else, the canine received a good workout like this pigeon did in a previous post. Here is a sign to help you understand how to safely transport your pets on vertical transportation.
As a general rule of thumb, it is recommended that persons carry their dog while riding up or down an escalator. If the dog is too large to carry, it is suggested that both the dog and owner take the elevator. In addition, while most guide dogs are trained to ride escalators, it is still strongly advised to use the above alternative methods when at all possible. If you travel with your dog, don’t forget to keep it safe, too!
