Find out how to travel safely with a dog in your car and where to buy the best dog-friendly vehicles
What are the best ways to make a car dog-friendly?
When buying a car for your dog, you must know what features make it ‘dog-friendly’.
Size can be a major consideration for your dog, while more nervous dogs may benefit from a vehicle that is steadier and quieter. Take these factors into consideration when choosing a dog-friendly vehicle:
There is plenty of storage space
There are many dog-related items that you can transport in your car, from balls to poo-bags, water bowls to spare leads. Make sure your vehicle comes with a storage compartment so that you can put things away neatly.
In some cars, tie-down points allow you to restrain your dog if it is crated while traveling.
If you have a large dog or one that needs to be crated, a decent sized boot will be at the top of your list without a doubt. You should always check the boot’s capacity before you test-drive a car, and you should bring your dog along so you can see for yourself how it fits.
Surfaces can be easily cleaned
Dog owners are familiar with muddy paw prints and shed hair on a regular basis, so it is important to ensure that the car you are considering buying has durable materials inside.
Maintaining a healthy climate
Dogs enjoy air conditioning, too. A climate control system throughout the vehicle is one such feature that your dog will appreciate on a hot summer’s day or on a particularly cold day.
When travelling with a dog, choose a car that is smooth and can absorb road bumps if your pooch is nervous or susceptible to motion sickness.
