For small dogs, the best car safety option is a crate or a soft-sided carrier, secured with your car's safety belt (if you choose to have your pet travel in the front passenger seat, be sure to disable the passenger-side air bag). Again, the best choice is a hard-sided Sky Kennel in one of the smaller sizes, strapped in with a safety belt. If you plan to fly with your small dog, or take her with you on public transit, you'll want to purchase a soft-sided in-cabin carrier. My favorites include Chloe's large SturdiBag carrier and the Sleepypod Air carrier, which are both designed with car use in mind: Straps on the carrier's long sides allow a seat belt to pass through and hold the carrier closely against the seat.

You don't need to leave your four-legged friend behind when you take a road trip if you follow these tips for safety.

Warning
Avoid leaving your dog alone in a parked vehicle. Temperatures can rise quickly inside a car, leading to heat stress or suffocation.

Step 1: Restrain your dog
Restrain your dog in the car and keep them safe with a crate, a safety harness, or a barrier.

Tip
Use a crate for the most secure method of travel. Secure the crate so it doesn't move around while you're driving.

Step 2: Take short trips
Take short trips to get your dog used to being in the car and used to the restraint.

Step 3: Talk to your veterinarian
Avoid feeding your dog for three or four hours before a car ride and consult your veterinarian if your dog gets carsick.

Step 4: Get a secure collar
Get your dog a secure collar with your cell phone number on it, in case you get separated while traveling.

Step 5: Stop frequently
Stop often so your dog can relieve themselves and have some water. Use the clean-up bags.

Tip
Don’t let your dog ride with their head out the window or in the back of a truck. Injuries can occur from flying debris or sudden starts and stops.

Step 6: Water your dog
Give your dog water and lots of love when you get to your final destination. Enjoy your trip, knowing that your furry friend will be with you all the way.

Did You Know?
Since 1990, the Labrador Retriever has been the most popular purebred dog in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club’s registration statistics.Every seventh traffic accident is a rear collision. The rear cargo area is part of the crumple zone that is designed to protect the occupants in collisions. A rear-end collision pushes in the car's rear end and items placed in the cargo area are pushed forward. If there is a dog car crate in the cargo compartment, it will move forward toward the rear-seat backrest and it can be crushed depending on the vehicle, dog crate, and severity of impact. In severe collisions, it is also possible for the dog crate to break the backrest and subsequently injure a passenger. For more than 20 years, MIM has worked with functional designs of safety details in the vehicle industry and they have documentation from hundreds of crash tests. Using this information and their experience, MIM developed a vehicle dog safety crate following the major car manufacturers' use of crumple zones. Then they worked with Swedish government agencies to develop the Safe Pet Crate Test to test the safety of passengers and dogs in crates during a traffic accident.

MIM continues to improve their product and has now released the third generation Variocage, which has passed the crash tests. In a rear-end collision the Variocage will be compressed in a controlled manner just as the crumple zones of the car function. This means that the rear-seat back will not be pushed forward by the crate and also that there is a limit to how much the crate can crumple inward on the dog. These features minimize the risk of damage to both passengers and dog.
