Pets Travel offers a wide range of products for safe car journeys with your pet. Pets travel with their owners in cars regularly. Especially dogs are taken on visits, for walks in the woods or on holiday. Of course, driver and pet safety come first when travelling with a dog or other pet in the car. Animals are too often unrestrained in the car! This is extremely dangerous.
Pet safe in the car
Thousands of accidents occur in the Netherlands every year; pets are sometimes the victim,
sometimes the cause and sometimes both. Seat belts are mandatory for people, even in the back! But these are not
mandatory for pets, while the risk for a pet is just the same in the event of collision or emergency braking
Dog on the rear seat
If you transport your dog or another pet on the rear seat, use a harness and click this into the seatbelt buckle. The lead should be kept short so that the dog cannot end up in an uncomfortable position or become trapped.
Dog unrestrained in the car
This is extremely dangerous. Not only for the dog, but for you too! If you need to brake suddenly, your dog weighing perhaps 20 kg will be projected forwards in the car at high speed. Your dog will become an unguided projectile with potentially disastrous consequences.
