Car Safety for Pets: Top 5 Pet-Friendly Products

It’s important to keep your pup happy, comfortable and safe during every car ride. There are usually two types of dogs when it comes to riding in the car. The first type is already wagging its tail into overdrive before you even finish asking the question, "Do you want to go for a … car ride?" The second type lets their nerves get the best of them, and is the main reason you always keep a roll of paper towels in the backseat. Whether they love or hate going for car rides, it’s up to us as owners to make sure the ride is as safe and comfortable as possible.

Pet Ramp and EasyRamp

For easy access into and leaving the vehicle without breaking your back, we recommend our PetRamp or EasyRamp. Both ramps are portable and foldable ramps with a non-slip surface for your pet to walk on.

Always reward your dog with positive reinforcements like treats and/or toys to keep them calm during the ride. Offer them blankets or pillows if they wish to lay down or crack open the window to allow some fresh air inside. And just in case, don’t forget any cleaning essentials if there is an accident.
