Before taking your dog on a road trip, do the right thing by preparing for a safe ride. Give her a safe riding environment.
Know your dog’s temperament. Knowing your dog’s temperament helps to better determine the type of environment you want to create in the vehicle cargo area. Is your dog mild mannered, easy going, or is it a little aggressive. Does you dog demand attention or will she just sit back and enjoy the ride.
Does your vehicle have ceiling air vents. If so the suv pet barriers designed to meet the ceiling will probably not work with your vehicle. You might need to think of other ways to contain your pet.
The most popular dog barriers are the metal barriers. They seem to do the best job in containing the pet. The tube shaped models work great for the less aggressive dogs. They keep the dog contained and offer a nicer look. A more aggressive dog will try to root through the tube design openings. The metal mesh barriers not only contain the dog but eleminates most aggressive dogs from trying to free themselves.
There are canvas type barriers and less restrictive barriers available. These barriers are ment more for passive dog types.
Dog ramps are available if your dog needs help in getting into the vehicle. Don’t let the size of your dog stop you from bringing it along. There are several types of pet ramps designed with you pet safety in mind.
