2. Buckle Up
Most of us let our dogs hang their heads out of the car or lay in our laps while we drive, but doing either of these things is dangerous for you and your pup.
Just like humans, dogs should be buckled in with a seatbelt. You can buy one online or at a pet store. These belts hook onto your dog’s harness and click right into the one in your vehicle. In the case of an accident, it’ll keep your pup from flying forward and severely injuring itself. Plus, when you buckle up your dog, they won’t be able to distract you while you’re driving.
Most people think it’s cute when their pet wants to cuddle up on the road, but it can be just as bad as texting when you’re at the wheel. Your dog could even roll down the window and jump out if you don’t pay attention.
So, be safe rather than sorry, and buckle in your best friend!
