Everyone knows to wear their own seatbelt, as well as the ins and outs of safe travels for children, develop but what about restraining your pets?  Keeping your pet properly restrained will also keep all passengers and pets safe.

Dog owners have different preferences when it comes to traveling with pets—some allow dogs to roam around the vehicle, while others prioritise stricter safety measures. Here at Petfix Club we want to help you determine which method works best and is safest for you and your pup when traveling on the road.
