Travel Safely with Your Pets this Summer

Summer is right around the corner which means families nationwide are gearing up for road trip season! And what is a family road trip without our four-legged friends along for the ride. As American families grow and need more space, the popularity of the 3-row SUV has taken off. Pair that with the fact that more than half of American pet owners travel with their pets and it becomes even more crucial for pet owners to take proper safety measures to identify the safest places for pets to travel, based on the unique design of these SUVs.
Subaru understands that pet safety is important to their drivers, as over two-thirds (68%) are pet owners, with 48% of them owning at least one dog. To ensure the safety of travelers with two or four legs, Subaru of America has once again partnered with the Center for Pet Safety to determine exactly where pets should be secured in 3-row vehicles.
