How best to transport a pet

SPAIN 70% of pet owners in Spain do not know the regulations about animal restraints in vehicles  ... amongst other reasons, because they are not clear. Here is some advice from Santilla Formación: Small animals are best transported in boxes or cages placed on the floor behind the front seats; Larger pets are best transported in the back of the vehicle (of the station wagon variety, large or small - not IN the boot, exactly) separated from the rest of the cabin by a net or a grille - or with a double-anchored harness as short as possible, enough to prevent much movement. The harnesses that click into the seat belt anchorage are not advisable because they o not prevent sideways movement. (As seen on J.A.W.S. Facebook page.)
