FINALLY!! I have practiced each area you touched on for the past 14 years! I have preached and preached the safe way to take your dog safely in a moving vehicle, and many times I'm looked at as if I should be the one riding in a
crate!
Thank you for an EXCELLENT article!!

You should really try the PupSaver - it will not only keep your Maltese safely seated and restrained but will also provide life-saving impact protection. Looks great, too! Black and Tan and cushion-y!

I usually carry copies of my dogs most recent immunization record...bordatella, rabies, distemper, etc. In case of any problem, or if you need to get a pet groomed in another city/state, you will have the necessary papers that are required my many groomers/boarding places. Also, include one of those sticky rollers to de-hair a motel room that kindly accepts pets. Be a model guest and leave the room as hairless as possible if you have an extreme shedder!

I've trained most of my dogs to potty on command. This gives them permission to potty in strange places and can mean a shorter rest break as you don't to sit, and sit, and sit, until your pet decides it has to potty NOW. Made long trips much easier.

Last year, I took a 2900 mile trip with my Pug, Winston. Because we stayed in motels, I took his crate. I used the bottom of the crate to keep him secured. The vents are slats so the seatbelt kept it very tight & I also used a harness to keep him in one spot. He slept a lot & was able to get up & down to see where we were. For a few times, before leaving, I tried it out and he was okay with it. I was able to take a few of his favorite stuffed toys, he used as pillows. He was able to strecth out to let the car AC keep him comfortable. The other half I used to keep all the other gear for him. All in all, it was a nice drive because he had fun & was secure in one place. He does have a car seat, which I use for shorter day trips. But, he has to curl up in that. Which is okay after a 3 hr. romp in a dog park. I use a special strap on the seatbelt.

crate in the car is always a great idea..equally important is using bungy cords to sercure the crate within the car...Keeps both the dog and crate secure from your friends at k9katelynn.com

This is a great and very helpful article. I agree that dogs must be secured in the car.


I have been looking for a nice doggy car seat for my Maltese. I have bought a couple of them but they just weren't what we wanted. I'm not giving up.

Consider the Champion K9 car harness. It attaches to your seat belts. Very secure and easy to use.

All small dogs should be in a Pup Saver. It is the only product that provides impact protection and restraint for small dogs.

My dog DID lock me out of my van! Not a good feeling. Luckily, I was at a gas station not far from home, & someone brought me the spare
keys.
Needless to say, when my dog is in the van, I take the keys w/ me even when I pump gas!
