6. If you and your pet are travelling in a vehicle, open the windows on both sides for ventilation and to allow a through draft. When doing this, leave gaps small enough so that your pet won’t escape or get its head trapped. It might be worth considering car window ventilation guards.
7. If you’re bringing more than one dog in a vehicle, they should be separated if there is a chance they will fight.
8. If your dog isn’t in a cage or in the back of a vehicle using a dog safety guard, it’s worth considering removing the collar before leaving the dog. This is because collars can become caught on objects such as hand brakes, gear sticks and foot pedals, which could harm the dog. When you return to your car, control your dog using a slip lead to loop around its neck before opening the door wide.
