Car Travelling with your Dog

Tips on Car Travelling with your Dog Leave a comment

Most dogs consider riding onboard a moving vehicle as an exciting activity. However, if his experiences during his younger years were generally scary trips to the veterinarian, your dog will avoid any car rides. Either way, there are measures you need to do to ensure your pet remains safe during the journey.

For one, always keep your dog secured inside your vehicle. If he is set loose, he could run around your car, get under the pedal, and impede your driving – which could lead to accidents. You will also prevent your dog from falling out, especially when you make a sudden stop or turn. To secure your pet, you can use the appropriate harness or a carrier, which are available in the shopping sections of this website.

In addition, make sure you have your dog inside your car, especially when you are driving a pickup truck. This will ensure that your pet will not jump out of the vehicle especially when he sees something – such as small wild animals – running on the sides of the streets that he wants to chase.

On another note, you can make your dog enjoy the ride by opening the windows – but not all the way – so that the breeze hits his face. They say that generally, dogs love the wonderful sensation of riding in something with high speed such as cars.

As a final note, consider having your dog in the back seat, especially when you have automatic airbags. These safety devices are only manufactured for adult humans. In case there is an accident and the air bags deploy, their force could injure heavily or even kill your animal companion if he happens to be riding at the front.
