3 Tips for Keeping You and Your Pup Safe While You're on the Road

By madwire. | Traveling with Dogs

We know that you love taking your dog on trips and little car rides. Not only do you enjoy having your best friend along for the ride, but any car trip is like a mini adventure for your furry best friend.

  On the Road With Your Pet Dog Travel Tips! Whether you are just running to the grocery store or on your way to a great hiking trail, every car ride offers a new and exciting experience for them. While these car rides offer a great way for you to enjoy your pup's company, it is still important to ensure that you and your dog are also safe while traveling to your next adventure. We have a few tips for keeping you and your dog safe while you are on the road:

1. Keep Out of the Front Seat

It is never a good idea to have your dog sit in the front seat of your vehicle, but it is especially important to keep them out of your lap. Having your pup in the front seat can be very distracting and lead to an accident. Smaller dogs can even be killed by a deployed airbag. It is best to utilize some kind of restraint to keep your pup safely in one place.

2. Keep Them in the Car

It is very important to keep your dog inside the car with you. It is not safe for dogs to ride in the back of a pickup truck. It is incredibly easy for them to fall or even jump out of the back of the bed. It is also important to keep them from hanging too far out of the car window. Not only can they jump out of a window, as well, but they could also be injured by debris on the road.

3. Don't Leave Them Alone

Never leave your dogs alone in the car on hot or cold days. On hot summer days, car temperatures can skyrocket within minutes and if your dog is left alone in the car, they can suffer severe brain damage or even die. Car temperatures can reach dangerous levels on even mildly warm days. Leaving your dog alone in the car in the winter can also lead to death. Road trips, no matter how brief, offer a great chance for your pup to experience something fun together. However, safety should always be your number one priority while you are on the road with your dog. So, before you hit the road for your next trip, be sure to grab your dog seat cover and take the necessary safety precautions so you both can enjoy your time together.     On the Road With Your Pet Dog Travel Tips and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

EXCELLENT SEAT COVER

We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.

My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.
