How to carry your Frenchie in your car?

Each state has their own regulations on transporting pets, but regardless of the legislation, there are some safety tips to consider. It’s also important to make the trip comfortable and enjoyable for both you and your Frenchie boy or girl.

Your Frenchie puppy is a member of the family, so when you go out why should she or he stay at home. Fortunately, Frenchies like traveling, meeting others and due to their size, there is no problem with their transport. We list below a few products that will help you travel safe and sound.

Car harness for your Frenchie

The car safety harness is very helpful to make traveling a safe experience for your pup. It will keep him or her still during the drive so that you are not distracted, and your pup is safe in case of sudden braking.

Most harnesses are fully adjustable so that you can keep yours as your pup grows. Choose one which is multifunctional and you can use them both in the car and for walks.

Dog Bag for your Frenchie

Thanks to the size of the breed, your pup easily fits a bag, and you can carry him or her around while shopping or traveling (and it also looks great!). If you place the bag in the car, make sure it is safe and can’t fall.

Crate for your Frenchie

If you travel frequently and/or fly, a solid crate is a good alternative. (We use crates to carry our pups overseas to their parents.) These are lightweight, made of non-toxic plastic, and some of them even have a secure locking system, as you might not be with your beauty during the whole journey.

Lay down your pup’s favorite blanket and he or she will enjoy the trip.

Extra tips

Puppies have different needs, and while some might be all right travelling in a bag, an other might find it uncomfortable, and the same applies to all the other products. So it’s always the best to experiment and see what fits them.

If you buy new equipment, it’s recommended to get the pup to try it before the trip. This way they will be happy to use it and your journey will not be delayed.

Ultimate Guide
to Raising a Frenchie

Don’t keep your pup in your lap, or let him or her run inside the car. This puts him or her, and all the humans traveling in the car in danger (and also other people on the road).

It’s also very important that you teach your Frenchie to only get out of the car when you give permission and he or she cannot jump out immediately once the door opens. Read this article to learn how you can achieve that.
