It is important to take every precaution to ensure that you and your pet are safe in the car.

While driving, you have the reflex to put on your seatbelt.  Then why would it be different with an animal?

If you carry a child or a baby in your car, you securely belt her or put her in a baby seat.

In case of accident or during sudden braking, the laws of physics do not make a difference between a human, a dog or a dictionary. Anything that is not attached becomes a projectile and can potentially hurt you, injure others, or cause you to lose control of the car.

Did you know that you can receive a ticket if a police officer finds that the animal affects security?

For example, if you are driving with a dog on your lap, and you have to put the breaks on when making a sudden maneuver, the dog could interfere with your vision and prevent you from properly maneuvering the steering wheel. It would be unfortunate if your pet gets stuck in your legs and pedals.

Moral of the story, if you love your pets, tie them or put them in a cage – which will be be tied securely. There are harnesses designed for car transport that allow your animal to move a little so he can enjoy the travel too, while being protected when needed.

If you want what's best for your four-legged friend, feel free to visit a Mondou store closest to you and talk to an assitant who would be happy to help you.
