Sephi loves her dog seatbelt. But if you think your dog will hate a dog seatbelt, consider the various other pet travel supplies available on the market. Keep him safe by keeping him in the back seat with a pet barrier. Keep him secure in a pet travel crate strapped in with kennel restraints. Or keep him comfortable in a dog car seat.
Love your dog this Valentine’s Day and keep him safe when he travels. Spring is coming soon and he will want to go to the dog park and enjoy the sunshine again.
Love is playing in the park. Love is expressed in a joyous bark.
Love is taking him to the vet. Love is when he is more than just a pet.
Love is good food that puts him in a happy mood.
Love his giving him a nice warm bed even though he will shed.
Love is a nice long walk and a wagging tail.
And love his keeping him safe, whatever that might entail.
Say “Happy Valentine’s Day” to your best friend.

Pet travel in winter can be more difficult in colder weather. Road conditions can be more dangerous so it is more important than ever that your pet not be a distraction in the car. Keep your pet in a pet crate or have them wear a pet car harness. If a pet crate or pet car harness just won’t work for your pet, you can get a pet car barrier to keep them in the back seat.If you are in a car accident or get stuck in the snow, call for help and cuddle up with your pet under a blanket for warmth. If you are stuck in a high traffic area and expect help soon, keep your car on and your heater going. If you are stuck in an isolated area, run your car and heater sparingly as needed. Unless you know for sure that help is nearby, you should stay in your car.
We here at Pet Auto Safety.com don’t just sell pet auto safety supplies, we use them too. In fact, Sephi has worn a dog car seatbelt ever since she was a puppy. That was nine years ago and Pet Auto Safety.com has only been around for four years.
Sephi is the reason I started this business. Maya is the reason why I keep doing it. Without their safety harnesses, traveling with them would be a hassle and potentially dangerous for both them and me.
But I don’t just have them use a dog car seatbelt. Since starting Pet Auto Safety.com, I have found lots of great pet auto safety travel supplies. One thing which I love is the Extend-A-Seat. The Extend-A-Seat covers the floor of the car so that Sephi and Maya have more room to move around. We have gone to Texas and back a few times and having more room really makes the long trip more comfortable. I wish I could have that much extra space!
I also really like the pet window barriers. The Breeze Guard pet window barriers are great for letting in fresh air without allowing my dogs to stick their heads out the window. The Breeze Guard pet window barriers keep my dogs from being hurt by flying debris and they prevent my dogs from being able to jump out or fall out of the window.
The dog car seat cover is also a blessing. Maya loves to get wet at the dog park but the last thing I want is a wet dog getting the seats of my car soak and wet. Without the dog car seat cover, that wet dog smell would be absorbed into the seat cushions forever. The dog car seat cover also keeps mud and dog hair off my seat cushions.

It can be difficult to get a scared dog used to riding in the car. One of the best things you can do for your scared pet is to let them use their favorite blanket or bed while they are in the car. If possible, have someone sit in the back seat with the dog to provide added comfort. The perfect pet travel supplies for your scared dog includes a pet crate or dog car seat (for smaller dogs). A dog car seat can be used as a bed in the home and it generally has a safety strap which can be attached to your dog’s harness for safety. For a crate-trained dog, a pet crate is great. Just use your dog’s crate in the car. You can secure the pet crate with a bungee strap.
If you are ready to go on your trip, don’t forget these important pet travel supplies:
1) Bring your dog’s pet safety restraint such as a dog seat belt or pet car seat. Or at the very least, install a pet barrier to keep your pet from distracting the driver.
2) Keep your pet’s leash handy. Don’t let your pet get out of the car without their leash on and their leash in your hands.
3) Bring a first aid kit for both you and your pet.
4) Make sure your pet is wearing their id tags for in case they wander off.
5) Bring plenty of water for both you and your pet.

Do you want to take your pet with you when you travel but are concerned about having to leave your pet in the hotel because you can’t take them with you? You may have to leave your pet in the hotel some of the time, but we have some ideas of places you can go traveling with a pet. Now that Spring is here, you can consider eating outdoors at a park or on a restaurant patio. Lots of restaurants have outdoor patios and many will even allow you to have your dog there.
Other places you can go traveling with a pet include parks, bike trails, outdoor gardens, ranches, wineries, golf courses, lakes, rivers, and beaches. Activities you can do when traveling with a pet include biking, fishing, tubing, swimming, boating, camping, outdoor site seeing, hiking, golfing, etc. Also, you can find out about dog events in the area by calling the local animal shelters.
When traveling with a pet, make sure to call the places your are going to visit before taking your dog to them. For example, even though botanical gardens and golf courses are outdoors, many do not allow you to take your pet. Even some state parks may not allow pets.
