What is a pet taxi?

A Barking Mad pet taxi is a car kitted out especially for the chauffeuring of animals. It does not contain crates for multiple animals, but insteadyour pet is welcome to travel in their preferred pet taxi position (boot, back seat etc) as long as it is legally in line with The Highway Code – Rule 57 . This clearly states:

‘When in a vehicle make sure dogs or other animals as suitable restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you or themselves, if you stop quickly. A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog cage or dog guard are ways of restraining animals in cars.’

Barking Mad are experts in pet travel, so you can be assured that your very best friend will enjoy the quality pet taxi service they deserve. Safety and animal welfare are our top priorities when it comes to pet transport.
