MARK: I love my truck! Look at that! This is made for dogs. So one of the most important things about traveling a dog is, many dogs die of heat exhaustion in a vehicle. The good thing about this type of truck is we’ve got ventilation in the side and ventilation up through the top. We’ve also got a water bottle here so i’ve got a special travel bowl I use that can tip up and not pour water everywhere so even if I had to park in the sun for a short while, I could for a little while. However as a general rule I try and park in the shade just like you should. Thanks Jaz you expect to put im in my truck! Thanks the good thing about having a truck like this, I can put him in the back and I don’t have to clean my seats.
JAZ: So if you don’t have an awsome truck like this let’s have a look at what another option might look like. So this is not how I would travel a dog.
MARK: But for those people who do choose to travel like that there’s a safe way to do it. You got the cargo clip over this side here, you can run a chain between it and you need to use a short clip chain, so the dog can’t get over here and flip off the side of the truck when you go round the corner. So it’s really important this part of it and obviously in the big cab in the crates are safer or alternatively we’ll show you what to do inside.
JAZ: So as you can see they’re all harnessed in with their harnesses. The seat belt runs through the loop and clips up into the seat buckle. So you can be nice and safe and all strapped in.
