Guards and Screens

Barriers like metal guards or gates aren't really safety restraints and don't provide the sort of protection your small dog would need in case of a sudden stop or car accident. But if you have an SUV, they are good for providing additional protection to your dog from any objects in the rear of the vehicle that might fly forward during a collision.

Another barrier we recommend are pet nets, which are made to work as screens for car windows. If your tiny tail-wagger loves the wind in his face, this screen attaches easily to the inside of a car window -- still allowing it to roll up and down -- so that your little one can enjoy a carefree car ride without your having to worry about flying debris.
