3 Tips for Keeping You and Your Pup Safe While You're on the Road

By madwire. | Traveling with Dogs

We know that you love taking your dog on trips and little car rides. Not only do you enjoy having your best friend along for the ride, but any car trip is like a mini adventure for your furry best friend.

  On the Road With Your Pet Dog Travel Tips! Whether you are just running to the grocery store or on your way to a great hiking trail, every car ride offers a new and exciting experience for them. While these car rides offer a great way for you to enjoy your pup's company, it is still important to ensure that you and your dog are also safe while traveling to your next adventure. We have a few tips for keeping you and your dog safe while you are on the road:

1. Keep Out of the Front Seat

It is never a good idea to have your dog sit in the front seat of your vehicle, but it is especially important to keep them out of your lap. Having your pup in the front seat can be very distracting and lead to an accident. Smaller dogs can even be killed by a deployed airbag. It is best to utilize some kind of restraint to keep your pup safely in one place.

2. Keep Them in the Car

It is very important to keep your dog inside the car with you. It is not safe for dogs to ride in the back of a pickup truck. It is incredibly easy for them to fall or even jump out of the back of the bed. It is also important to keep them from hanging too far out of the car window. Not only can they jump out of a window, as well, but they could also be injured by debris on the road.

3. Don't Leave Them Alone

Never leave your dogs alone in the car on hot or cold days. On hot summer days, car temperatures can skyrocket within minutes and if your dog is left alone in the car, they can suffer severe brain damage or even die. Car temperatures can reach dangerous levels on even mildly warm days. Leaving your dog alone in the car in the winter can also lead to death. Road trips, no matter how brief, offer a great chance for your pup to experience something fun together. However, safety should always be your number one priority while you are on the road with your dog. So, before you hit the road for your next trip, be sure to grab your dog seat cover and take the necessary safety precautions so you both can enjoy your time together.     On the Road With Your Pet Dog Travel Tips and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

So So

The concept is a good one, however there is room for design improvement. The little tabs didn't work AT ALL in my 2008 Subaru Outback. However, even if they did work I then would not be able to roll the windows up and down as needed. For me that is not an option. I haven't yet tried using the Velcro attachments since my husband is not convinced it's a good idea to attach something like that to the door panel. With all that being said the product itself looks good, and the concept is a great one. When my puppy gets bigger I will try the Velcro when my husband isn't watching.:)

Great Protection

I think this seat cover is going to work out just fine. It fits well, was extremely easy to install. Just waiting for my new puppy to be old enough to bring home.

Seat cover just received

It would be nice to be able to actually get some use out of it before I can honestly review the product. I will say that so far my experience with 4Knines has been wonderful. Their customer service is great.

If you have dogs, and love your car, this is a must buy!

I recently purchased the Cargo Cover to protect my new Subaru Outback. My dogs love car rides, but they're also shedding dogs and make a mess. The Cargo Cover took a brief 30 seconds to install and provides protection against dirt, scratches, hair, dander. It's super easy to clean-up too!

Great Product!

XL cargo liner fit my GMC Yukon Denali perfectly. While our 20 lb dog doesn't put much stress on the liner, it works great keeping the back clean from carrying our often muddy recumbent bicycles around. Top notch product, fast delivery. Thanks!

Great products. We are return customers.

Bought the bench cover and side panels for our Nissan Pathfinder. Looks great. We have the same set up in our Titan truck and couldn't be happier with the protection it gives to our leather interior. Highly recommend. Shipping was super fast!!!
