Whether you’re traveling with your pet for fun or necessity, their safety and yours is of paramount importance. Tending to their needs while driving can become a dangerous distraction, so it’s best to do a little preparation before you travel.

Make time for a little fun before you leave, whether with a game of fetch or a walk with your dog or a session with a feathered teaser if you’re traveling with a cat. This will expend nervous energy and help your pet to be calmer when in a carrier or restrained in a pet seatbelt. Make sure they’re also fed and have had a drink, so they won’t be hungry along the way.

It’s vital to keep your pet housed in an appropriate pet carrier or other restraint so they’re not able to roam freely, which could cause problems if they get between your foot and the brake. Make stops occasionally on a long journey so they can stretch their legs.
