#1 It can help prevent car sickness.
When you have the right type of seat, and position it correctly (more ahead), this is one of the top remedies for motion sickness. While we cannot prevent every type of discomfort that a dog may experience, this one can be resolved in many cases.
#2 It allows you to bring your Maltipoo more places with you. Once you have your puppy or dog safe in the car, and are implementing methods to resolve motion sickness, there is no limit to where you can do. And taking your Maltipoo out into the world is a key part of socialization.
Bring your dog to new dog parks, restaurants that allow dogs
, hiking trails, lake shores, fairs, parades, flea markets, farmer’s markets, the beach, and any other place or event that will allow you and your Maltipoo to explore and see more of the world.
#3 It can literally save your dog’s life.
You wouldn’t let your dog run around through the neighborhood off leash, you wouldn’t place toxic food nearby for him to potentially ingest, and you wouldn’t give him a broken toy that’s a choking hazard. So, why would you risk your puppy or dog’s life by having him unbuckled and unrestrained in the car?
