Safety Tips for Pets in Cars
One of the best things about having furry little pet is being able to take them with us in our cars. Nowadays, there are many things to do around with your pets thanks to the pet-friendly policies that many establishments have. However, there are a few things you should know to keep your pets safely aboard your car.
If you have a puppy or a kitten you might want to take them on short trips in your car. That way they will get used to it and as they grow up they will learn to behave and you’ll be able to take them with you all the time. Nevertheless, even if your pets seats quietly on the passenger seat like a furry person, you still need to take precautions.
If your pets are naturally nervous or get over excited easily, you might want to consider using a crate. Filled with a comfy bedspreads or sheets that smells like home your pet will be able to cuddle in it calmly while you get to your destination. If you cover the crate with sheets your pet might feel even more calmed in case he’s having a bad time for any reason.
Quick tip: you might be used to long road trips, but your pets probably aren’t. Make quick stops every hour and a half so you and your pets can spread your legs (and paws).
Some pet owners aren’t not very fond of crates and like to have their animals loose in the car. However, if they don’t know how to behave or if you consider them to be unpredictable you can use some kind of barrier between you and them so they won’t jump between you and the wheel all of the sudden.
Dogs usually love having the windows down so they can feel the air and perceive many new smells as they keep you company on your drive. Our advice is to keep the windows just open enough to let the air ain, but not so much that your restless dog might jump out of it!
Quick tip: always bring a bottle of water specially for your pets. They need to stay hydrated, specially during summer and if they like to go with you everywhere, you should always have water available for them.
