When traveling with our pet, we take into account what the DGT says about traveling by car with a dog: it is important that animals are well restrained inside the vehicle. A viral TikTok video shows what would happen if they weren’t and makes it clear what is the best accessory to take the dog in the car of all.
In this video we see a simulation of what happens to a dog harnessed in the back of the car when there is a frontal collision. First lesson: the attachment of the harness to the seat belt must be short to prevent the impact from propelling you into the front seats.
Adjustable seat belt for dogs
In the video we see how dangerous it can be if the dog’s harness to the seat belt is too long. That is why we have signed one of Kiwoko who is adjustable in length for 5.99 euros.
Dog carrier for the car
However, as established by the DGT and this video, the ideal is to travel with our pet in an approved carrier for cars and thus prevent it from being blown up in the event of a crash or accident. As they say in the video, “the less it flies, the better”, which is why this one, between 66.59 and 172.29 euros depending on the size, is our favorite.
