When it comes to taking your dog for a ride in your vehicle, that animal needs to be set in a safe position. You have the option of a car seat for the small to medium-sized dog, along with dog crates or the use of a harness for the larger animal. All of these safety devices are then connected to the vehicle’s seat belts to keep your pet safe and secure. This is for the protection of your pet, yourself and others on the road. You can find any of the dog safety devices at your local Rockford-area Petsmart or Petco as listed below or one closest to your home.
It is difficult to drive safely when your pet is jumping around in the car and that can put you and others in danger. Many people choose to travel with their pets and securing them makes for safer, happier trips. Pets that are not restricted while driving cause distractions to the driver and other vehicles around. This has become such a huge problem with the ever-increasing flow of traffic on the road.
Choose the appropriate device according to your dog’s size and weight. Most car seats are versatile and can fit a dog up to about 30 or 40 pounds. It usually attaches to the back of the headrest in the car and the car seat belts. If you choose a crate, it is easily attached with the belts as well. Harnesses are placed on the larger dog like a vest with a hook on the back of it which also attaches to the car safety belt.
Even if you have the most well-behaved dog while you are traveling, always consider the fact that if you must stop suddenly or are involved in a sudden altercation, your pet could be in danger of being tossed around the car. People love traveling with their companions as much as they love jumping in the car whenever the door is opened. Take the extra step to make it a safe and happy experience.
