Merlin the Maltese is a perfect lap dog for traveling or just staying at home watching TV! (12)”
This is the Pet Gear Auto Pet Carrier and Base and it works much like the infant seat that latches to a base in the car. Works great for smaller dogs and cats heading to the vet for their visit or when you are traveling.
Your pet is put in the carrier and then latched firmly to the base secured with the seat belt. You no longer have to worry about the pet running all over the car or escaping when you are getting out of the car. I have had to catch many a pet that leaped out of the car when they arrived at the clinic because they were not in a carrier or on a leash. I have also seen a couple of pets injured when the owners tried to close the door after putting the pet in the car, only to close the door on the pet. Your pet is also protected somewhat, in the event of an accident.
If you go away and want to take your pet or pets with you, you have to know a little something about safe pet transportation. In some cases, you can take your pet on an airplane with you, and other times they must ride in cargo. You can take your pet in your vehicle and into a hotel, but you still want to make sure you have the appropriate items to keep them safe and also keep them contained. You want your pet to be safe, secure and happy no matter where you go or how you choose to get there. Don’t worry, it is not that hard to get it right.
Any type of pet transportation means having the appropriate pet carrier. You may see cute purses that can easily transport a small dog, but these are really not great for long term travel or safety. You want to have a sturdy carrier that is approved for air travel. The crate must have a lock and must have proper ventilation. It should also be big enough for your pet to travel comfortably. Your pet should be able to stand up and turn in a circle within the crate comfortably. If so, you have chosen the right size for pet transportation. If they can not turn around easily, get the next size up.
You also want to be sure that your pet is safe in your car if you are traveling. Have a pet loose in any vehicle is not a good idea. You can not control what they are going to do. You should use the same type of carrier for this type of pet transportation. This keeps them in one place. A well meaning but lonely pet could crawl under your legs while you are driving, making it impossible for you to apply the brakes. As you can imagine, that could be disastrous. The same crate you get for air travel works well for this type of pet transportation as well.
You also have to think about the basic needs of your pet when you think about pet transportation. They are going to need fresh water and some food while you are on your way to or from your destination. Make sure any crate you buy also have a way for your pet to get the water and food that they need. If you are traveling by car, make sure you stop for your pet to get out and stretch as well as do their personal business. Any pet riding in a car also needs a steady stream of fresh air, so be sure they are getting it and that the vent holes on the crate you have chosen are not blocked.
Lastly, understand that some pets simply do not travel well. Some do not have the temperament for it, or they simply do not like crowds or loud noises. You may want to take your beloved with you, but it may not be in the best interest of your pet. Find someone to watch them for you or find a kennel nearby that fits your needs. Pet transportation can make your vacation a nightmare if your dog or cat simply can not handle the stimulation or the conditions. They will be better off left at home with a carrying relative than to be traumatized by conditions they simply don’t understand or tolerate.
Ready to head down the interstate and Fifi wants to come along? A dog car seat will keep both of you safe while traveling down the road.
If you travel with your pet you know that sometimes they can be pretty hyper and maybe a bit distracting. Secure your pet in a dog car seat for her safety and your own. We may be good drivers but there are always unexpected road hazards. We may have to suddenly step on the brakes, throwing Fifi off the seat. She could be injured, or if you would reach to catch her you might lose control of your vehicle, causing an accident and injuring yourself as well. To prevent this from happening, secure Fifi in a dog car seat; she will be content to ride along and you will have peace of mind knowing you won’t have to unexpectedly catch her if you should have to stop quickly.

A doggie car seat can keep both you and your dog safe in your vehicle. Traveling with an unsecured dog can be dangerous, especially if they are hyper. Hyper or not, it is important for your own safety to have your dog in a car seat or contained in the back seat of your vehicle.
A dog will often want to run back and forth between the windows to see out while you are driving. Should you have to stop suddenly or make a quick turn, your dog can be thrown to the floor and possibly injured. Reaching down quickly to stop your dog’s fall can also cause a car accident. To prevent this from happening, it might be best to invest in a doggie car seat. If you have a small breed that likes to ride on the console of your car or pickup, there is a special booster seat just for the console. This booster seat adds a little extra height to the console and your dog is kept safe with a harness attached to the seat. Dogs like to see out when they are traveling and there are several car booster seats that allow this while still keeping your dog safe and secure.
For larger dogs, you can install a barrier between the seats preventing him from coming into the front seat. This will not only keep your front seats free from dog hair, it will prevent your dog from being thrown forward in case you have to break suddenly. So be safe, buy Fido a doggie car seat.
