The Mesh Vehicle Pet Barrier is a safe, convenient and affordable solution to traveling with your pets. Almost all automotive accidents are caused by distracted driving and this includes distractions by dogs in the car. According to the ASPCA, an astonishing and unfortunate 30,000 car accidents are caused each year by unrestrained pets in a motor vehicle. In a recent study done by the American Automobile Association, 59% of pet parents that responded to their survey admitted to participating in at least one distracted behavior while driving in the vehicle with their dog. Over half of respondents admitted to petting their dog while driving and 21% let their dog sit on their lap. Although we love our pets and want them to be comfortable in the vehicle, there are ways of doing so that will keep your pet, your children and yourself safe while traveling. Some of these options include using a crate, car harness for dogs or a vehicle barrier, such as the Mesh Vehicle Pet Barrier. This pet car safety barrier is designed to fit most any car, van, suv or truck. Easily install the Mesh Vehicle Pet Barrier with the simple bungee cord attachments. It can be installed between the front and rear seats or the back seats and the cargo area. There is no permanent hardware that can be an eyesore or cause damage to your vehicle's interior. The mesh material makes it easy to safely keep an eye on your dog while preventing your furry best friend from causing distractions by jumping from the back to the front of your vehicle. If you're not traveling with your pet, the Mesh Vehicle Pet Barrier can be easily removed and stowed away in the included storage bag.
