Can truck drivers bring pets on the road?

I don't know if this is bad protocol on this forum or not...if it is let me know and i will start a new post.

For the owner/operators:

If you are leased onto a company do you have follow their company driver pet policies? Does it make a difference if you are on your own authority or theirs?

What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

Not in the industry yet, but really considering it.

Been in IT for 24 year and have worked in the "data space" of the IT world for the last 15 years. This has involved anything from database administration, data movement programmer, business intelligence (reporting) developer etc. Prior to data was doing installs of what we now call content management systems for newspapers and magazines. Traveled 2+ weeks a month and for 9 years really enjoyed it.

Had planned to "retire" or evolve in early 2021, but plans changed (prior to pandemic) which had me not really ready to transition yet to a non-income based lifestyle. August of last year, left previous employer for a new one hoping it would re-kindle some of the passion I had lost working for a large corp....nope.

Have been looking at trucking, but have some obstacles to getting started. Trying to figure out possible solutions, if I do, might make the jump.
