If you have a large dog, you know that transporting him or her in a car can be tricky. There just isn’t enough room, and he or she tends to get restless and start barking. Fortunately, there are a few tips that will help you to carry your dog in a car safely and comfortably. In this article, we’ll outline the best ways to transport large dogs in cars and SUVs, as well as provide some helpful tips on how to keep them calm during the trip. Read on to find out all you need to know!
It can be daunting to try and carry a large dog in your car or SUV. But there are several things you can do to make the process easier. Here are some tips:
- Make sure your car is well-sealed. Don’t leave extra space between your vehicle and the animal, because they may get inside and damage something. Use blackout curtains if necessary to keep them out of view while driving.
- Choose a carrier that is high enough off the ground so that the dog cannot reach any electrical cords or buttons on the dashboard (and vice versa).
- Securely fasten the carrier with straps around both hips and chest, especially if he is stubborn about staying put.
- If possible, bring along a water dish for him so he doesn’t feel thirsty during transport. And last but not least…have patience!
