If you consider yourself to be a loving and responsible dog owner, then you must take extra precautions when preparing to transport your dog in your car. Many dogs adore riding in the car, but some suffer car sickness and anxiety, so make sure that your dog is accustomed to car riding before embarking on a long trip. Follow my tips and suggestions below for safe car riding.

1.    First things first, never drive your car without having your dog secured in place. Having a loose dog in the car can be incredibly dangerous for your pet, as well as everyone else in the car. Having a dog sitting in your lap can make you distracted and more likely to be involved in a car accident. Dogs are also more vulnerable to injury because of their lighter body weight. They can easily fly across the car if are involved in a crash. Allowing your dog to hang his or her head out the window is also very dangerous because your dog could easily jump out or be subjected flying debris.
2.    The easiest thing you can do is purchase a travel container for your dog. Its best if you start you dog out in one as early as possible. Puppies will be able to adapt to traveling this way must faster than older dogs. You can easily purchase one at your local pet store. Just make sure that it is the appropriate size for your dog.
3.    If your dog doesn’t handle a travel crate very well, you can also purchase a special seat or seat belt. Many come with comfortable cushions and adjust to your backseat easily.
4.    Once you’ve got the travel accommodations settled, make sure to bring plenty of food and water for your pet. He or she can easily get dehydrated on long road trips.

Have a great trip and remember to use your brakes gently to prevent your dog from jerking around in his or her travel crate.
