Traveling Safely With Your Pets This Summer

Road trip with pets

Summer weather is perfect for road trips and adventures, and there’s no better companion than your four-legged friend. After all, your dog might be the only one on Earth who loves spending time outdoors even more than you do!

Of course, traveling with your pets calls for some added planning and preparation. While no pet owner wants to think about the worst case scenario, it’s important to plan out your adventure in a way that keeps your pet safe.

Along the Way

Your Subaru is designed for your protection. In addition to advanced active safety systems to help you avoid accidents, though, you also rely on passive features like your seat belt without giving it a second thought. You should certainly provide the same safety for your pet, whether it’s a harness that buckles into the seat belt receiver or a crate that ties down in the cargo area.

In many accidents, being thrown around the cabin is actually what causes injuries for many pets. This also keeps your pet secure after an accident, when their first reaction may be to flea from the vehicle even if it isn’t safe to do so. By using an appropriate harness, you can keep your pet safe and secure.

Once You Arrive

You wouldn’t want to get caught on a sunny day without plenty of water, and neither do your furry friends. Any time you’re headed on a long drive or a day outdoors, be sure to bring water specifically for your pets. The pet supply store offers many options, from collapsible bowls to bottles with built-in drinking dishes. Bear in mind that your pup will likely drink more than usual due to heat and exertion, so bring plenty of water along to keep everyone hydrated and happy.

As long as you take the time to plan for your adventure and keep everyone safe and happy, your four-legged pal is sure to make a perfect copilot. For more information on how to tackle summer road trips safely, be sure to contact Subaru of Morristown by calling (866) 910-3466 today!
