Travelling by car with your puppy and dog

– Content and Marketing Coordinator, Press Office at EmmanuelleChaix

You may wonder how to get your puppy and dog used to car travel, so below are a few points to follow.

It is important to keep your dog safe when travelling: secure him/her behind a dog guard or on the back seat with a seat belt.

To get your dog used to travelling in your car, introduce him/her to the car from an early age.

  • let him/her explore inside your parked car in his/her own time, under supervision in a safe area
  • leave the doors open so he/she can come and go as he/she pleases and reward his/her relaxed behaviour
  • gradually build-up from this: first, get him/her used to the seat belt
  • then turn the engine on to help him/her get used to the noise
  • when he/she is comfortable with this, go for a short drive

Secure your dog behind a dog guard, on the back seat with a seat belt, or in a secure tube when travelling in a vehicle.
