Quick Tip Before Buckling Up . . .

Whether your furry friend rides in a belt harness or a car seat while on road trips, I wanted to point out a quick tip for safety. Even if you prefer collars for walking, don't clip these to a seat belt or car seat attachment.

Personally, I don't believe in traveling with an unsecured pet period and, under no circumstances, should you drive around with a restraining device attached to your dog's collar. (I don't need to give you the graphic visual, but I'm sure you can picture what happens if you slam on the brakes.) Next time you're ready to hit the road, stock a harness just in case or, invest in a special version that attaches straight to the car safety device from your walk time, too!

I use a special doggie seat belt. It a harness that has a loop on the back where I can attach the car seat belt. Chloé loves it because she can get comfy in the back seat. http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2751400

With carriers, just thread the latch plate of a seatbelt through the carrier handle and buckle as usual. One extra layer of protection for the kids!
