Today’s Three Seconds: How to Transport Your Pet, Part 2
So, what IS the safest method for transporting your pooch? Your dog should never be left loose while riding in the car. One solution is to put your dog in a travel crate that’s well-suited for their size, an ideal choice for dogs that are easily excitable. Another safe alternative is to tether your dog with a safety harness or pet seat belt. This protects them from hurtling forward in case of a sudden stop or accident, and helps reduce distracted driving. Puppies and small dogs shouldn’t ride in the front seat – the danger of front air bags to children applies to dogs too.
…Now that your dog is secured safely, it’s okay to crack the windows just a little bit so they can still get their sniff on!
