Traveling with Pets
Protect them on all your road tripsBy Statepoint
Pets are beloved members of many families, and many also drive with their furry friends, from trips to the veterinarian’s office to long adventures. Here are some precautions:
- A proper restraint will protect your pooch in case of an accident. The Center for Pet Safety recommends a quality, crash-tested harness.
- Allowing your dog to stick their head out the window is more dangerous than it seems. It can cause painful debris to get into their eyes, nose and mouth.
- Never allow your dog to sit on your lap. Use a barrier to prevent a dog making its way to the front.
- Use a proper carrier with enough room for them to move around.
- Make sure your cat is wearing a harness and leash before exiting the vehicle.
We love our pets!
