Spring is in the air and after long snowy winter we are all ready toenjoy the outdoors, and so are our dogs.
In order to make it a car travel with dogs safest way we created a small list of what we need to do before hoping into the car to travel with our furry babies and make it car travel with dogs safest way
ALWAYS, had tags with your info on your pooch. You can never know when he decides it’s time to take a walk by itself.
I know you love your car, and you love it clean. So use a car seat cover on your bench or pilot seat, where doggie will be spent time during the ride.
If you have small breed dog, you may want to use a car booster, just like you would with a baby. There are many sizes and heights in the market. Choose the one that fits his size, and allowing him to view the scenic, so he’ll be much more relax and will enjoy the ride.
For larger breeds, you should restrain him/her for safety reasons for him as well as for you. The option of the car harness keeps the pet in place. The zip-line gives the dog some freedom to move from one window to the other. When restrained, he’ll stay on the seat if you make a sudden stop, and will not “fly” over to the front, and heart himself and / or you.
Depending on your dog nature, you may consider some car safety accessories like blocking the option of crossing from back to front with mesh barrier, or guarding the door with the door guard. For small breeds or older dogs with health issues that have difficulties jumping, a folding pet ramp (available in different sizes) will solve the problem, and you will eliminate your need to carry heavy pooch and heart your back.
If it’s a long travel, stopping from time to time is a necessity. The dog needs to to do his thing and drink or eat. Always keep poop pick-up bags in your car. Have a travel bowl for water and food. These bowls are collapsible easy to store and do not take much place. Treat bag for the road (also can be used for daily walks and for training purposes). Check some of our travel accessories that will make your life easier while on the road.
You can arrange all you need in a travel organizer created with pets in mind. Put in his favorite toy, bowls, leash, medicine, the treat bag, pick-up bags, etc. Some organize even come with bowls or bottle.
Keep it Safe and you’ll have a healthy happy dog and enjoyable trip.
