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

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.

Maribeth Hartin

Quick delivery, easy install, great quality!

Our cargo cover got here quickly, took one minute to install, and has nice padding and looks like it will last. We have 3 big dogs so it will get a workout! We have a GMC Acadia and the fit is as close to custom as you can get.
