dog car seats

Now that summer is over, you may not be taking your dog with you in the car as much. But if you do, don’t forget to keep them safe. Remember these simple pet travel tips:

  • Don’t let your dog put their head out the window – even flying debris like leaves can do damage to your dog’s eye at 60mph.
  • Have your dog wear a dog seat belt.
  • Keep first aid kit for you and your dog in the car.
  • Keep a blanket in the car.
  • Keep drinking water in the car.
  • Keep your dog’s leash handy and don’t let them out of their dog seat belt until they are safely restrained on the leash.
  • Don’t let your dog ride in the front seat of the car unless your car does not have passenger side airbags or unless the passenger side airbags have been disabled.
  • Do not leave your dog in the car, even in cool weather.
  • Don’t let your dog ride in the back of a pick up without proper restraints. (A rope does not count as a proper restraining. For the proper product to keep your dog safe in the back of the pick up, visit
