If there’s one thing we know for sure about traveling families, it’s that more often than not their pet dogs are considered a vital member of the family and participate in as many family vacations as possible.

Fun Cabin Rental cares about the safety of both you and your pet while you’re on a family vacation. Below are some great helpful hints and things to remember when traveling in a car with your valuable 4-legged cargo.
– If your dog will be along for the ride in the back seat of a car, it’s wise to have a dog harness or some sort of pet restraint for them. According to Barkbuckleup.com, a 60-lb dog traveling in a car going 35 mph has the potential to become a 2,700 pound projectile in an accident. Be sure to look for a restraint or harness that will keep your pet safe in the event of an accident, but also allows them the ability to sit or lay down comfortably during the drive.
– If the vehicle in which you will be traveling is a station wagon, SUV, or minivan, or you’d simply prefer the dog not sit on the back seats, invest in a sturdy pet barrier. Available in a variety of sizes, a proper fitting barrier keeps your pet safely behind the rear seat.
– Just like humans, many dogs are comforted by a certain bed, toy, blanket, etc. so it’s always a good idea to bring their favorite security item if possible.
– Traveling with water for your pets is essential. Anything you bring for them that can hold water and they are able to successfully able to drink from is fine. If you’ll be driving a long distance without stopping where there is publicly available water, plan ahead by bringing your own water in a container that can be resealed; an empty and thoroughly rinsed milk gallon jug works well for this.
