Dogs Are People Too! Cat Lover On Board. I Like Big Mutts And I Cannot Lie! My Cats Are Smarter Than Your Honor Student. These are some of the bumper stickers you might find slapped on the autos of pet lovers. But there are probably some really handy pet accessories inside of those cars too. Here are a few that can keep you and your pets safe and comfortable and avoid some of the wear and tear pets can cause your vehicle.
Seat covers are the optimal upholstery-saver for the pet owner's car, truck, or van. Most covers are for back bench seats (if your vehicle has front airbags, no pets should ride in the front seat without the airbags disabled), but some slip nicely over bucket seats. There are even pet covers to fit in the cargo area of SUVs. All of them are easy to remove for cleaning.
Containing Your Pet To The Backseat
Speaking of the backseat, keeping your pet there can be difficult. There are plenty of options for barriers that stretch between the front seats. These are usually made of a mesh or a large-weave web so you will still be able to see your dog or cat and they will be able to see you.
Entering and Exiting the Vehicle
Steps and ramps are an ideal option to help your pet get in and out of your vehicle, especially as pets get older. There are many ramps that attach to the back of vans and SUVs and neatly fold up when not in use. Drivers who have large breeds of dog will find these accessories to be much lighter than lifting their furry friends into the car by themselves.
Most cats don't find car travel as pleasing as dogs do. The majority of cat owners find that a carrier is the best way to keep the cats and the drivers safe in the car.
