Keep your pet safe on your next trip with these practical tips. They all center upon keeping your pet restrained so that it stays out of trouble and does not get itself hurt from airbags if you get in an accident.

A gate guard might be the best way to do this if your pet does not stay in a crate. Resist the urge to let your pet stay in your lap. The airbag in the steering wheel could seriously injure or kill your pet if it goes off. Instead of rolling down your windows for air, turn on the AC so that your pet does not lean out of the window. Keep your pet occupied with a toy, and do not hesitate to let it take a break for a walk or the bathroom whenever you think it needs.
