Pet Recreation Safety


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.

"About 41% of all dog owners who set out on the road in their RVs take the family pet with them", said Ron Epstein, editorial director with Good Sam RV Club Highways magazine.

Your dog can become a safe RV companion, camper or hiker if you put SAFETY first and be prepared.

Things to pack for taking your pet in your RV:

  • Federal law requires a 6' leash and collar/harness
  • ID tag (microchip is good too)
  • Travel bowls (fresh water & regular food)
  • Bedding
  • Crate, carrier or travel harness to buckle up
  • Toy (chew toy or bone)
  • Pet medicines and pre-trip Vet visit (flea pet meds)
  • Travel pet pens

Don't forget to register for the (free) Bark Buckle UP Pet Safety Kit that includes your pets' photo, so get one today.

Keep your pets' medicine with your kit and it's a good idea to get the phone number of a local vet once you arrive at your destination. Visit the Bark Buckle UP reviews section for some great places to vacation with your pets.

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 motorcycle travels."

It's vital that motorcycle riders take this mode of transport seriously. Using such machines poses a higher risk, which makes it critical to outfit you and your travel partner with the safest gear available.

Motorcycle Safety Tips for Riders on the Road:

  • Always wear a helmet that fits right and has a DOT label, which shows that it meets federal safety standards
  • Know your bike's limits
  • Stick to the speed limit
  • Don't tailgate other vehicles
  • Use your signals
  • Be respectful of other drivers. Don't weave through traffic or drive on the shoulder
  • Make sure other drivers can see you. Don't ride in blind spots and always use your headlights
  • Brake smart. Use both brakes at the same time, slow and steady
