Attention All Dog Owners

It’s a sunny day and you decide to take a trip out with your canine companion. As lovely as that sounds, a fun day out can quickly become a nightmare if you don’t travel safely with animals on board your vehicle.

Crash-tested crates can be purchased from most pet shops and ensure the dog’s safety during travel, not to mention the safety of you and other passengers! Taking a break or two during long journeys is also advisable, and be sure to bring water and a bowl so your four-legged friend stays hydrated.

Most people should be aware nowadays that leaving your dog in a hot car can be fatal. Even if you wind down the windows and/or park in the shade, it’s still a very dangerous situation for your pet to be in. The outside temperature is 22 degrees, in a car it can reach an unbearable 47 within the hour, which of course can lead to heatstroke and ultimately death.

Safe driving from Britannia!
