When you are traveling by car, it’s tempting to take your dog with you, since you don’t have the hassle of flying with a pet. If you don’t want to leave your dog at home or in a kennel, taking them with you is a great solution, however, just letting them jump into the car without any sort of tether is not safe. Here are the best car seats, tethers and barriers for dogs.
