One of the great joys in life comes from the deep bond we forge with our animal companions. There just isn’t anything like the companionship and unconditional love we receive from our pets. Most people who own pets keep them in or around the house — but not everyone. 

Truck drivers are out on the road so often that most people don’t think they can have pets. But whether you’re a truck driver or a fleet manager, you know as well as we do that this isn’t the case at all. Truck drivers often have pets that ride along with them, and you’ve probably seen quite a few over the years. They come in all shapes and sizes, but the companionship they provide is what they all have in common.
At Omnitracs, we love the idea of pets hitching a ride across the country and keeping truck drivers company. Pets are a relaxing influence, and their companionship can often be invaluable out on the road. If you’re a fleet manager, you’ve probably seen drivers who’d hate the thought of driving without their buddy. And if you’re a truck driver, maybe you even have a big rig buddy yourself.
If that’s the case, then you should enter our Big Rig Buddies contest. The contest runs through August 23rd. During that time, all you have to do is share a photo of your pet that drives with you and tell us a little bit about what makes them the best companion on the road.
At the end of the promotional period, a panel of judges from Omnitracs will decide on two winners of the contest. Those winners will be announced live at the Great American Trucking Show and on social media. It doesn’t take much to turn your pet into a star — just snap a picture and give us the lowdown on why your buddy is the best.
So whether your big rig buddy is a dog, a cat, or anything in between, here’s your chance to show the world how much they mean to you. Miles upon miles of companionship is a great gift, so show them a little love and enter your pet in the Big Rig Buddies contest. And hey, even if they don’t win, you can just tell them they did. We’re pretty sure they’ll believe you.
