Before the next time you take your dog with you on the road, consider the following suggestions for help minimizing distractions and preventing serious injuries in the case of an accident.

The first thing you should prepare for is your pet wanting to move around the vehicle while you are driving. They can get anxious or bored. Walking your pet ahead of time or confining your dog in a safe space are the best ways to deal with this. You shouldn’t let your dog sit on your lap or ride in the front passenger seat. These are dangerous positions if you get into an accident because of the damage that an airbag can do when it goes off. The bed of a truck is no place for your dog either when the car is moving.
