Excellent point, and that also causes it to escalate. It doesn't take all that much to break a car window, Connor broke my windshield with his forehead and barely noticed.

Inara is extremely crate aggressive/barrier aggressive...and she gets crated while in the car...with a blanket covering her crate also. It cuts back on her barking...which is awful when there are people outside the van (even if we're in the van). I just would fear not only would the problem escalate...but I'd be afraid someone would stupidly stick their hand in and get hurt. She's always put well inside the van, so even if the back doors are open, people can't get to her easily.
