Is it really necessary for your dog to wear a seat belt?
It’s no secret that dogs love to go for rides in cars and many dog owners enjoy the company of their furry companions on road trips. However, letting your dog have free rein throughout the car while driving is dangerous for everyone, and not just in a crash.
According to a recent AAA survey, as many as 31% of dog owners who take their pets with them in the car admit to being distracted by that pet at some point while driving. Strapping in a child or even yourself is second nature, so why should a pet be any different?
While operating a vehicle, having a free-roaming pet is dangerous for many reasons.
Crash Doggie Testing
We’re pretty excited here at Keep Doggie Safe because just this month, Subaru, who already has a pet-friendly reputation, announced they will fund research to further pet safety testing. Using “test doggies” in accident simulations, The Center for Pet Safety has already begun using the same laboratory used to test child safety seats. This is pretty awesome in our book! Where to get a Doggie Seat Belt
As luck would have it, Keep Doggie Safe carries doggie seat belts. We want your dog to be as safe as possible while he enjoys the ride. Our wide selection includes car harnesses, dog seat belts, car booster seats and a variety of related dog car trip accessories. There’s no way to know when or if an accident will happen, so don’t leave it to chance. Strap that doggie in so everyone is safe.
