Traveling safety tips for you and your pets:
- Life jackets save lives! This includes your pets when going out on the water with them. No matter how well your pet(s) can swim, consider equipping them with a life vest when taking them out on the boat.
- Never leave a pet loose in a truck bed or similar spaces. Serious trauma or death have resulted from dogs falling out (intentional or not). Cross tie them or place a central tether in the floor of the truck bed, always using a SHORT lead. Long leads can still allow a pet to fall out and be dragged or choke to death.
- Seat belts also add a measure of safety for your pet(s) when traveling by car.
