Features of a Dog-Friendly Vehicle

Traveling with a pet can be a great experience if your vehicle is dog-friendly. In Anchorage at Lithia Hyundai of Anchorage, we love giving owners advice about properly transporting their dogs. Your dog may need certain amenities others don't need, such as a lower liftgate or curved seating.

Keep a dog still by figuring out what makes them comfortable. A cargo area or curved seating for smaller animals to snuggle into is secure for traveling. Wider doors are good for larger dogs. If your vehicle is higher off of the ground, a ramp is a useful tool!

Heat is a big issue when traveling with pets. A dog-friendly vehicle will have vents where the dog is riding and a sunshade to keep them cooler. If your dog rides in the back of your vehicle, a barrier may stop them from trying to jump out when you open the liftgate or from stepping on your items stored in the back.
