Choosing a dog carrier
In order for everything to run smoothly in these situations, it is best to help your puppy get used to a dog carrier as soon as possible, which will become their home while travelling.
The dog carrier not only needs to fit your dog comfortably, but also needs to be the right shape and size for your car.
Dog carriers can be acquired easily and we recommend you consider ones which best suit your needs. For example a canvas one is good for keeping puppies protected from harsh sunlight, but would be less effective and secure compared to one made from plastic or metal in the unfortunate event of an accident.
By keeping the dog carrier in the house, you can help your puppy get used to it. You can do this by rewarding it with a treat each time it chooses to shelter itself inside the carrier. Travelling with puppies is easier if they feel that they are in a safe and familiar environment, so rewarding them for choosing to sit in the carrier is essential.
