Visit ASPCA.org for some great pet car travel tips. They advise several safety features for your dog including securing them in a well-ventilated pet carrier, not letting your dog stick his head out the window, and not leaving your dog unattended in the car. These are lots of great tips for pet car travel, many of which we have also stressed. Two differences:
1) The pet carrier should be secured in the car. Kennel straps from Pet Buckle are a great way to do this. The kennel straps from Pet Buckle have been crash tested.
2) If your dog doesn’t like to ride in a pet carrier, have him wear a dog car harness or ride in a pet car seat. A dog car harness or pet car seat can provide as much safety for your dog as a pet carrier that has been secured in the car.
