You understand car safety. You always make sure people are buckled up, keep your cell phone tucked away, obey traffic laws, and you can secure various models of children’s car seats with your eyes closed (and one hand behind your back). But, here’s a question: what happens when you bring your pet along for the ride?
Pet travel safety is as important as human travel safety – if you’re in an accident, your pet is as likely (or more likely, in many cases) to be seriously injured as you are. Here are some valuable tips on preparing for a road trip and traveling safely when your pets are in the car.
Finally, if you find you like traveling with your pets, consider investing in rubber floor liners and plastic seat / door covers, to help keep the mess of pet travel to a minimum.
Hopefully these tips will help get you there and back again with your furry companion safely; we wish you many wonderful journeys in the future!
