Road Trip! What You Should Know About Bringing Your Dog Along For The Holidays.

Roadtrip with dog The last few months of the year are here, and that usually means holiday travel! Kennels book up fast at this time, so you may be left with no other option than to bring Fido along with you for your holiday festivities. If that sounds stressful to you. keep reading! With proper planning, every member of the family, including the four-legged ones, can enjoy a trip. Vehicles aren't designed with dogs in mind, and neither are planes and hotels! But there are some ways to make things easier for your family and your beloved canine.
  • Just like us, dogs can become easily stressed out about traveling, so it's best to keep a happy, positive attitude around him/her. Be sure to let your dog take a break when you stop to refuel or grab a snack. He'll appreciate the opportunity to stretch his legs and empty his bladder! And if your pet is hungry, offer a snack high in protein, and when you arrive at your destination, let him have his regular meal.
  • If you do not have multiple family members traveling with you, you could allow your dog to ride in the back seat on a 4Knines seat cover. The unique design allows you to create a hammock to keep pooch in his place instead of in the floor board with quick stops. The padded and quilted construction is durable and water resistant, and protects car seats while providing luxurious comfort for pets. All 4Knines seat covers feature a nonslip backing with seat anchors to keep the covers in place, and have convenient openings for seat belts.
  • When traveling long distances by car, it's best to crate your dog. While this might seem "mean" to you, your dog will find comfort in being in his/her familiar space. It's also safer for your dog, and you. You'll be less distracted, and he/she will not be jolted around in the back seat with sudden stops, or feel the need to curl up under your feet! Be sure to use a crate big enough for your dog to stand up in and turn around in, and that the dog cannot break out of.  You may be tempted to put food and water in your pet's crate, but avoid this in order to help prevent your dog from vomiting or having a bathroom accident in the case of motion sickness.
Happy traveling!

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
