Do auto barriers protect your dog?

dog-auto-barrierDog auto barriers will keep your dog safe while traveling in SUV’s. Dog’s that can move around freely can endanger themselves as well as the other passengers. The barrier keeps everyone safe by creating a strong wall between the front and back seat. Your dog will stay safely in the back seat or cargo area even in your car stops suddenly. You no longer have to fear that your dog will wind up on the console by jumping through the seats. Unlike the hammock style back seat systems, the auto barrier can be left in place since the seat is still fully usable. It is important to make sure that you and your pet stays safe while traveling. I’ve heard of a dogĀ  jumping onto to the console and actually put the car into neutral while rolling down the highway at 65 mph! Luckily this did not cause a major accident since the highway was not too crowded at the time and the driver acted quickly got the car back into “drive.” So protect you and your pet and consider an auto barrier.
