Being a responsible pet owner

Transporting your pet

If you’re transporting your pet on the back of your ute on a public road, you must secure them so they can’t fall.

Under the Animal Protection Act 2018, you will be committing an offence if you don’t.

In Australia, around 5000 dogs each year are injured or killed from falling.
