More than a third of pet owners enjoy bringing their pets along while traveling. We admit, there are few cuter things than a dog hanging their head happily outside of a passenger window. But did you know there are several safety measures you need to take into consideration before having your furry friend tag along? It is true, they too require automobile safety when traveling or joining you for an afternoon drive. Dog car safety is very important!
Take a look at these five pet safety tips HERE you need to consider before bringing your pet along.
Don’t forget the number 1 rule: NEVER leave your dog unattended in a car! Temperatures rise so much faster than you can imagine! Did you know that it’s illegal in some places?
If you see a pet left alone in a car, retain the tag number and vehicle information. Immediately contact BOTH animal control and law enforcement. If you are in a store parking lot, consider telling the store manager and having the owner paged. Stay nearby to monitor the situation until help arrives.
Happy Driving with your best furry friend!
