Traveling with Pets

Hello Everyone,

So, I have two Yorkies, and will soon be traveling the country during our move from Texas to Washington. They are super clingy and I am not sure how I am going to manage to get across the US with my two dogs, and not loose it. In the car they have to be on my lap, and cry, like someone is killing them, if they aren't my lap. I was thinking seat belt harnesses and putting them in the front seat so they aren't too far...Any ideas?

  • For safety's sake, my dogs are always crated in the car. Should we be in an accident, a crate will help keep them safer from flying glass, etc. A harness would be a good idea to keep the dog from becoming a projectile and to keep it safe.

    Dogs should not be allowed in the front seat, however. It is not only more dangerous because of the airbags, but they are also waay more of a distraction.

    I agree.  For a cross country trip I would definitely crate the dogs.
