Top Travel Tips for Pet Owners
Whether you’re driving across town or across the country,
keep these safety tips in mind to ensure your furry traveling companion stays safe and sound.
•Always keep your pet restrained or contained when he’s riding in your vehicle.•Place your dog or cat in a pet carrier in the back seat (to avoid harm if the frontseat air bags were to deploy), and fasten the carrier to a seatbelt.
•Alternatively, secure your dog in the back seat with a safety harness.
•If you drive an SUV, install a pet barrier to keep your dog safely in the back area of the vehicle.
•Keep current identification on your pet (microchip and/or ID tag) to help ensure he will be returned to you if he becomes lost.
