How to Travel With Your Pet

Pets are part of the family, and it is important to keep them safe when they're in a moving vehicle. Here at Carbone Subaru in Troy, NY, we like to provide our customers with useful tips, so read further for pet travel tips.

First and foremost, never leave your furry friend unattended inside of your vehicle. Even with the windows cracked, heat can become too much for your pet. It is also advised to avoid traveling with your pet in the bed of a truck, and never leave your pet leashed in a truck bed because this could cause strangulation.

While almost every dog likes to hang their head out of a car window, it can cause damage to their respiratory system, so try to keep your canine's head inside the vehicle. Keeping your furry companion properly restrained is also necessary for safety. You can restrain your pet in a crate, or there are safety belts available that are designed specifically for pets of all sizes.
