Choosing the Right Car Restraint for Your Dog | Love That Pet™
Car restraints for dogs help keep you and your pet safe when the two of you are on the go.
When looking for the best product for the safety of your pet, remember to do your research. Check out resources like the Center for Pet Safety’s website and follow manufacturer’s guidelines on what type of restraint (harness or carrier) will work best based on your dog’s size and weight.
In addition to keeping your pet safe, using a crate or restraint can keep them from getting loose in the case of an accident. I’m involved in animal rescue and am on a number of mailing lists and groups for transport requests, etc. One thing that comes across too often are calls for help in finding a dog(s) that got loose from a vehicle that was involved in an accident. Sometimes the dogs are injured, which makes it even more crucial they are found. Sadly, not all of these dogs are recovered. Even a leash secured to a point inside the car would prevent many of these cases.
