What is the law about dogs in cars?

Highway Code:  Rule 57 – Dogs and Travelling in cars.

“When in a vehicle, make sure that dogs and other animals are suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you or them if you stop quickly.  A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog crate, dog car seat or dog guard are ways of restraining animals in cars.”
