Safe dog transport is essential
For any professional dog walker, safe and secure dog transport is vital. Secured into the framework of our van are custom-made cages, offering each dog their own travel compartment. Silky’s dog transport also includes:
- Rubber floor matting, preventing slipping, even with wet paws;
- Soft fleece mats for comfort;
- Fresh drinking water;
- Canine first aid kit;
- Natural light throughout van.
Know the code!
It is not a very good or safe practice to have dogs loose in a vehicle. In fact, the Highway Code states: “When in a vehicle make sure dogs or other animals are suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you, or themselves, if you stop quickly. A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog cage or dog guard are ways of restraining animals in cars.”
Dogs like their own space
In most case, dogs should be kept separate from each other when travelling in a confined space. Dogs may be great together when out on a walk, where they can adjust their personal space and approach, but may have a very different attitude in a limited space. The cages in my van create an individual space for each dog.
Keeping it clean!
The van is vacuumed, hot mopped and disinfected. All the mats are hot washed regularly.
