I would strongly suggest that you don't have your dog in the front seat. There is no way to turn off the airbags for the front. The seat sensor picks up there is something there and will deploy the airbags in the case of an accident. The speed of the airbags will not do a thing to protect your dog, but will likely kill it. (airbags deploy at close to the speed of a bullet) and if your dog is not held back by the seatbelt, the airbags will likely turn the insides to pulp. Sorry to be graphic but it is animal endangerment to have your pet in the front seat with you and have working airbags.
