This is a sponsored post for the Lexus Safety Event at Haldeman Lexus of Princeton .
My family adopted our adorable Shih Tzu puppy, Mochi, last January. Mochi is often in the car with us — whether we are on our way to his vet visits, on vacation (we traveled with him to Niagara Falls and Canada in July) or on local weekend day trips.
Because I am so focused on safety for my pup, Mom Home Guide is partnering with Lexus to help drivers better understand how to keep their pets safe in the car. Join me and Mochi this Saturday at a #LexusPetSafety event from 12-2 p.m. at Haldeman Lexus of Princeton in Lawrence, NJ, for a #LexusPetSafety event. Learn how to travel safely with your pet, and how to best restrain, feed and care for your pup in the car– and in style. Techniques for traveling safely with your pup will be demonstrated in the all-new Lexus ES, as well as the luxurious LS sedan and other models.
Plus, check out the $200 #LexusPetSafety gift basket giveaway below!
Keeping Pup Safe
I want to keep my puppy safe — he’s a treasured member of our family. Whenever we drive somewhere, he is safely harnessed and tethered to his seat with a special pet safety seat belt. I know he’d rather have free reign of the car while we are driving — he often makes his displeasure about being harnessed in the car known to us. (Especially if he’s the only one in the back seat.)
If I didn’t harness him when he’s in the car, he could distract me or get in the way while I’m driving. Or, if we got into an accident, he could be thrown forward, or injured by the air bag if he were to sit in the front seat.
Pet Safety Event
I am excited that next weekend, Mochi and I will be participating in the Lexus Pet Safety Event at Haldeman Lexus of Princeton in Lawrence, NJ. The event will run next Saturday, October 13th, from 12 p.m.-2 p.m. and is open to anyone interested in learning about traveling safety with a pet — and about the new Lexus ES! At the event, attendees can:
Get tips from Nicole Ellis, pet travel expert and Sleepypod representative, on safe travel with pets
Learn about pet health and food from a local pet food maker
Hear from a local shelter and enter to win a prize basket valued at more than $199
Learn pet restraint and travel tips from Lexus
Learn how the new Lexus ES accommodates your travels with your waggy friend!
Plus, I hear that some awesome swag bags will be given out at the event!
At the event, you can see the new luxury Lexus ES. The entirely new luxury sedan Lexus ES is longer and wider and features a beautiful, sleek and sporty coupe-like silhouette. The Lexus ES offers first-of-its-kind technology and a more powerful engine for the most advanced ES ever. I am looking forward to getting a look at the new Lexus ES next week!

What a great event. We adopted our dog last October and she loves to ride in the car, wish I could attend this as I ha r a lot to learn.
Oh my gosh Mochi is the cutest name for a dog ever! Look at his grumpy little face in the car! Safety first, buddy. I have lots of friends who would be interested in something like this…I am going to pin, thanks so much for sharing!

So important to keep those puppy dogs safe in the car! Good post!
Laura Kennedy says
What a great event. I wish we had of trained our dogs from the get-go. It’s a struggle to get them sorted when we go anywhere in the car.
Also, your Mochi is super cute!

When traveling by land it is better to have your own car. It is smarter and takes little time to travel. You can do regular maintenance to keep it running good.
Jennifer Whiting says
What a great idea for your sweet pup!
Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom says
Have fun today, Lauren! I am sure Mochi is going to love all those fancy cars! 🙂
Liam Clark says
So nice to see such cheerful posts, Lauren! It’s even more nice to see that people going on a trip are so thoughtful not only about their comfort, but also about the comfort of their pet. Hope you and your Mochi enjoyed this trip! I also have a favorite pet – a skye-terrier dog, which I often take with me on trips.
