I don't know if the taxi driver had the right to ask that, but, JMHO, I
would not put my dog in an open area  without something surrounding her.

I took a taxi yesterday, and the driver asked if I wanted to put Jenny in
the back. This was a completely open area primarily used to transport people
in wheelchairs. She would have had plenty of room, and I had full access to
her, but I said no, I didn't feel comfortable having her in the back like
that. It was a full taxi (4 people), so the question didn't aggravate me
like it otherwise might have.
My teammates didn't say much beyond "She'd have so much room back there!" so
I didn't feel judged or anything, but I was wondering on your thoughts. Did
the driver have the right to request this?
Jenny did end up sitting in the back seat with me, curled up by my feet.
