How to Make Your Pet Comfortable with Car Rides

If you need to take your pet in the car with you, there are a number of steps you need to take. Animals aren't used to the sensation of riding in a vehicle and may exhibit scared behavior. To ensure that you and your pets stay safe, here are some ways to get your pet comfortable.

Before you depart, you should take your pet on a trip around the block a few times. This will show them that there's nothing to be scared of. You'll also be in the safety of your neighborhood where you can drive slowly. Once you're ready to hit the road, put your pet in a crate. The confined environment is more comforting than the loud road noise. Furthermore, your pet will be safer in the worst-case scenario.
