You and your pet are invited to local events, or, join the live stream!
This post is part of a pet safety campaign sponsored by Lexus.
Every day we’re surrounded by information regarding securing our children safely in our vehicles, but what about traveling with our furry friends? Did you know that in some states there are even laws regarding restraining pets in moving vehicles?
We have partnered with Lexus to help drivers better understand how to keep their pets safe in the car. Join us at upcoming #LexusPetSafety events this fall in Princeton, New Jersey, Carlsbad California and Phoenix, Arizona and learn not just how to travel safely with your pet, but how to best restrain, feed and care for your pup in the car– and in style: we will be demonstrating techniques in the all-new Lexus ES, the luxurious LS sedan and other models.
At each event Lexus representatives will be on hand to talk about safety technology built into cars today and how they can help you be less distracted when traveling with your pet. And Sleepypod representative Nicole Ellis will demonstrate safe pet restraint in the car. Events will also feature health and nutrition tips from local pet food providers and a local pet shelter, to which attendees can make a donation or learn how to help contribute to the well-being of rescued pets. Event guests and others can also enter to win a grand prize “Wag Bag” of Lexus gear, Sleepypod gear, pet food and more. Details are available in each event invitation, which can be found in the events section of our Facebook page.
