When it comes to taking a road trip with your pet, thoughtful preparation is key. Help your pet get comfortable with being in the car by letting it sit in the car for short periods before a longer trip. Also, make sure that you have a leash so that it doesn't get away from you.

Keep your pet securely inside of the car. Do not let it ride in a truck bed because it can easily fall or jump out. It is also not protected in the event of a collision. Seat harnesses or gate guards make for good pet restraints. It is never safe to keep your pet in the front row of seats or your lap. Make sure that it would not be smashed by an airbag in a wreck.
