Safely Secure Your Dog

It is something anyone that regularly drives on Sacramento area roads probably sees on a daily basis – untethered dogs happily hanging their heads out of the car window, often even the driver’s side window. Dogs are our friends and companions, and they like to go places with us, but there are serious safety issues involved with a dog roaming freely about a moving vehicle. In the event of a collision or even hard braking, a dog has the potential to become an airborne projectile. Obviously, this situation can result in significant injury or even death, not only to the dog but also to the human occupants of the vehicle. A small amount of preparation is all that is needed in order to travel safely with your dog.
