Just like in a car with a sudden stop or accident, a loose pet can become a projectile and can be hurt or even killed. A pet can also hurt others should they be thrown through from or escape the RV (recreational vehicle). So always secure the whole family, pets included, and practice riding on short trips before you venture out on a long trip. While on the road make sure to stop every few hours for potty breaks and exercise.
According to statistics about 41% of all dog owners who set out on the road in their RVs take the family pet with them, so Buckle UP and GoRVing.
Your dog can become a safe RV companion, camper or hiker if you put SAFETY first and be prepared. Attend Bark Buckle UP's FREE Pet Safety Class at BassPro Shops Nationwide and in Canada.

These days, more pets than ever are traveling in vehicles; unfortunately, though, most drivers aren't taking the steps necessary to ensure this travel is safe for both, them and their pets. Most pets travel unrestrained, increasing the risk of pet injury or fatality during an accident.
"As a responsible pet owner it is critical the owner seek out, investigate, and purchase the safest gear available," says the Pet Safety Lady, Christina Selter, founder of Bark Buckle UP. "From pet carriers, trailers, side cars, goggles, and helmets there are multiple ways to safe guard your pet while still being able to enjoy the freedom of GoRVing with your whole family."
