So how do you choose a dog-friendly car?
A recent survey conducted amongst MINI UK customers showed that 91% of dogs are happy riding in a MINI, but how do you ensure that your car is as dog-friendly as possible?
Space and comfort. After a long dog walk, your dog might want to stretch out and have a comfortable spot to sit in on the journey home. So you might ask yourself, will your dog have enough height and width in the boot, in order to be able to relax for the drive?
Dog-friendly materials. As much as you may love your dog, the mud and mess they can leave can be difficult to tidy up. That’s why you should consider selecting durable but easy to clean fabrics. Non-slip surfaces are also a must (such as a mat or liner) to ensure that your furry friend won’t slip or fall.
Easy access. Making sure your car is as easily accessible as it can be can make all the difference to your dog. A low base will help your dog jump in and out of the boot or back of your car; and if your dog is a small breed or an older dog, a ramp will help too.
