Restrain Your Dog

Although many dog owners let their dogs run free in the car, there are good reasons to restrain your dog when riding along. Your four legged friend shouldn't travel unrestrained in your vehicle. The laws of physics are the same for dogs as they are for us. Not only can your dog be seriously injured in a car crash if they are not restrained, they can also become a dangerous projectile that can severely injure someone else in the vehicle.

The same is true of a unsecured dog crate.

 Don't take the chance. Spend a few bucks for a dog restraint and make sure everyone in your vehicle is as safe as possible. If you use a dog crate for travel instead, that should be strapped down also. Do it not only for your dog, do it for family and for your own peace of mind.
