The holiday season is right around the corner, which means that man people will be driving home to celebrate. However, if you plan on traveling with the family—including your beloved pets—there are a few things to keep in mind.
Many Chevy models offer plenty of space for family and friends, as well as pets. For example, the Chevy Tahoe has plenty of space and fold-flat seating, making any drive more enjoyable. When traveling with pets, space is everything. However, according to the Huffington Post, it’s important to secure your pets before traveling. It can be tempting to let your pet sit in your lap, but it is also extremely dangerous. Be sure to get a pet barrier, pet seat belt, or crate depending on the size of your pet.
Next, be prepared for plenty of stops. Pets need bathroom breaks once every two hours or so, especially if they are extra young pets or seniors. Be sure to plan for these breaks accordingly, and carry plenty of water for rehydrating on the road.
Finally, don’t leave your pet alone. Heat is especially dangerous for pets, but the cold weather can also put your pet at risk. Even if you’re only gone for ten minutes, you should take your pet with you. In fact, in many states, it’s legal for passersby to break your window to free pets if they’re unattended.
