A crate or harness that attaches to the seat belt should be used for your dog's safety when traveling. Crates and harnesses are available from most pet supply stores. Be sure to provide plenty of water and a favorite toy to make your dog as comfortable as possible. Also, be sure the crate...
is large enough to allow the dog to stand, turn and lie down
is secured to the vehicle
is strong, with handles or grips, and free of interior protrusions
has a leak-proof bottom covered with plenty of absorbent material
has ventilation on opposing sides, with exterior rims or knobs to prevent blocked airflow
has a "LIVE ANIMAL" label, arrows upright, with owner's name, address and phone number
Each weekday we will publish a family friendly tip.
