Travelling with pets

It is much safer for your pet to wear a safety harness when travelling!!

Dogs love to go for rides in the car. However, letting them have free rein inside your vehicle can be dangerous to both you and your pet’s health. In a recent AAA survey, 31% of drivers admitted to being distracted at some point by a dog climbing into their lap when driving. You wouldn’t think twice about putting a seatbelt on your child or yourself when getting into a car, so what makes your pet any different? When you are operating a vehicle, having an unrestrained dog aboard is dangerous for a variety of reasons:

Winter weather or not

Well, it appears we are still waiting for winter! In all this wet weather though, be sure to check your tyre pressures, (as this gives you more grip on the road) check brakes and keep washer bottles topped up- its no fun on a motorway behind a wagon, and you cannot wash the windscreen!

Happy Motoring! WB
