Keeping Your Dog Contained on a Car Ride

Taking your dog on road trips can be fun, but only if you do it right. We want you and your dog to stay safe on the road, so here are some useful tips for keeping your pooch contained.

The first thing you need to do is find an appropriate spot in the car. You should never put your dog in the front seat or anywhere where there's an airbag. Airbags can do more harm in your dog than good. You should also avoid letting your pup roam unrestrained. Not only is it a distraction, but your dog can become seriously injured in the event of an accident. The best solution is to put your dog in a crate in the cargo area. Alternatively, you can use a harness that can latch onto the safety belts.
