Keeping Pets Safe in the Car

Aaaaah, vacation…what’s better than taking off on the open road, nothing before us but relaxation and hours unclaimed by obligation? Throw your pets into the equation and it gets even better! As pet parents, we all want the best for our fuzzy family members. When you’re traveling, that means keeping them safe in the event of an accident. After all, you wear your seatbelt to stay safe in the car. Why wouldn’t we do the same for our pets?

Unfortunately, not all pet seat belts are created equal. Currently there are no requirements in place to crash test the seatbelt before putting it on the market, so even if you buckle your pup, there’s no guarantee that it will be effective. Luckily, the good people at The Center for Pet Safety crash tested the top rated seatbelts on the market, so you can keep every passenger as safe as possible. Now get out there and enjoy the open road!
