Are You Ready For a Second Dog?

With as much as you love your dog, it is easy to entertain the idea of getting a second one for your family.

pet car seat coversWhile a second dog can be a great addition to the family, the decision to get one should not be taken lightly. There are a few important factors you should consider before making your final decision:

Are You Ready For the Commitment?

Having one dog is a lot of responsibility, but having two dogs requires about three times as much work. Not only will you have to train each dog separately, but you will also have to train them together so they learn to respect each other. They will also each require individual attention, as well as exercise. Many pet owners think that getting a second dog will help make the training easier, however, that is not necessarily the case. You will also need to consider the financial commitment. Two dogs means twice the number of vet visits, food, and maybe even pet car seat covers for those road trips.

Are You Happy With Your Dog's Behavior Now?

Before you decide to get a second dog, it is important to think about how well your current pup is trained. Do they have some bad habits that you haven't broken yet? If so, you may want to wait until those bad habits have been corrected. Dog's do not always teach each other the best behaviors. Many dogs pass along annoying behaviors, such as constant barking or counter surfing. You want to be sure that your new pup won't pick up on any awful habits.

How Tolerant Is Your Pup?

While adding a second dog can provide a wonderful companion for your current pooch, there are some dogs that simply do not enjoy the company of other dogs, especially if your pup has been a single dog for an extended period of time. It is important to figure out whether or not your pup will be tolerant of a second dog. If he isn't, chances are that you will need to find yet, another new home for the new pup.

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

Perfect seat cover- just what I was looking for

I ordered the Split Rear Back Seat Cover - Grey Regular Fitted - Non Hammock option for my 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck. It fits perfectly in the front seat. Easy to take off and on and looks beautiful.

Customer Service

I ordered a dog cover for my rear seat. When I placed it, one of the straps was not holding tight so I sent an email to the company that day. I received an immediate response and an immediate replacement. I was so impressed! I love the no hammock cover. It's perfect!
