1. Protect him with materials and construction (such as aluminum skin over full steel frame) that withstand impact without tearing or splintering.

2. Invite him inside with a well-lit, light-colored trailer interior.

3. Make loading less stressful with a low-angle ramp.

4. Cushion his ride with rubber torsion suspension.
