Tips to Make Sure Your Dog Stays Safe in the Car When Traveling

  1. Dogs shouldn’t roam in the car. The safest way for your dog to travel in the car is in a crate that has been anchored to the vehicle using a seatbelt or other secure means. Dog restraints or seat belts are useful for preventing your dog from roaming around the car and being a distraction to the driver, but they haven’t been reliably shown to protect dogs during a crash.
  2. Leave the front seat for humans and keep your pet in the back seat of the car. If an airbag deploys while your pet is in the passenger seat (even in a crate), it might injure your pet.
  3. Keep those heads inside! Dogs and cats should always be kept safely inside the car. Pets who are allowed to stick their heads out the window can be injured by particles of debris or made sick by having cold air forced into their lungs. Never transport a pet in the back of an open pickup truck.
  4. Give your pet plenty of rest stops and stop frequently to allow your pet to exercise and eliminate. But never permit your pet to leave the car without a collar, ID tag and leash.
  5. Don’t ever leave your pet alone in a car.
  6. Use crash-tested crates. Crates are the best option to ensure your dog’s safety when traveling, especially in your car.
  7. Turn off power windows.

National Responsible Dog Ownership Month

September means back to school, pumpkins and the fall season. This month is also recognized as National Responsible Dog Ownership Month started by the American Kennel Club (AKC), aimed at helping pet parents raise happy and healthy dogs.

Owning a dog is not just a privilege-it’s a responsibility. These animals depend on us for, at minimum, food and shelter, and deserve much more. If you are considering taking a dog into your life, you need to think seriously about the commitment that dog ownership entails. If you already have a dog, you need to consider if you are fulfilling all your obligations as its owner.

Some of the basics of responsible dog ownership include:

  • Regular exams with your veterinarian, addressing issues like dental health, skin allergies and health issues that arise with age
  • Keeping your dog up-to-date with vaccinations for diseases like rabies, canine distemper and parvovirus
  • Maintaining a healthy weight for your dog by feeding a healthy diet and incorporating exercise into its lifestyle
  • Reducing financial stress by putting pet health care in your family’s budget
  • Making sure your dog has proper identification – optimally with both a microchip and a collar with your most current contact information
  • Ensuring your dog is kept safe from the elements, making sure it is protected during times of extreme cold or heat and always keeping it properly hydrated
  • Establishing natural disaster preparation plans in the event of emergencies, including creating an evacuation kit
  • Having spay or neuter procedures performed to curb the pet overpopulation problem
  • Lots of love and playtime,either indoor or outdoor play time. Well if you are out with your pets this water and dirt proof dog seat cover would be necessary for you: it is easy to use and clean.

customer feedback:cargo liner cover

This cover is fantastic! Not only was it easy to clean after my dog threw up in it but the hammock came in handy when I first brought my dog home because even with the seat belt she almost got into the front seat but the hammock helped stop her and makes me feel better if I have to break suddenly.

When my dog had her accident I just cleaned up the mess with a paper towel, wiped it down and chucked it in the wash. Came out looking like new! I would definitely recommend this to anyone with dogs.

How to Pick the Right Cargo Liner for Your Vehicle

Think about the nicks, scratches, and dings left behind on your vehicle’s cargo area! These will surely mess up that part of the vehicle loaded with groceries, luggage, or just about anything. Good thing there’s a cargo liner to provide a layer of protection, keeping the trunk or truck bed clean and safe from spills, stains, and dents. The liner can hide hideous marks and floor damage on the floor. It can also serve as a cushion to the cargo. If you don’t want mess to stick to the cargo area, use a liner for easier cleanups. Whether you want to add some splash of color, give your vehicle a nice look, or maintain its good condition and good resale value, you can never go wrong with a neat cargo liner. If you’re shopping for one, here are some tips:

Choose the right liner material for your needs and convenience.

Cargo liners are typically made of plastic, rubber, or carpet material. Plastic liners are waterproof and durable. They typically have a non-slip rubberized feature. Liners made of rubber are also water-resistant. They’re available as custom fit options, while some of them can be trimmed to fit the cargo area. If you want some soft cushion, cargo liners that made from carpet materials can be the thing for you. Although they’re not waterproof, these are stain-resistant.

Consider the type of cargo that you load on your vehicle.

To figure out which type of cargo liner is best for you, consider the cargo you often have to carry around on your vehicle. If you transport delicate items, the carpet liner’s soft padding will help protect these against scratches. If you want something to keep spills from ruining the car flooring, rubber or plastic liners can be your best options.

Get a liner that fit the vehicle’s cargo area.

Some liners can be trimmed to match the size and shape of the cargo area. These liners come in thin, flexible rubber. While most are shaped into rectangles, others are contoured with form fitting features. These are more affordable than custom-fit options. If you want the liner to hug the curves and corners of the cargo area and fit the contours perfectly, spending a little more on custom cargo liners would make perfect sense. All you have to do is provide complete vehicle details to get a custom-fit liner.

Pick the right design.

Cargo liners come in various colors and patterns. If you want something simple, plain cargo liners can be your best option. Choose a color that best complements the style or color scheme of the vehicle. If you want more colors or something personalized, look for liners with special designs or intricate patterns. You can order a cargo liner with your favorite sports team logo or any other style that best reflects your taste, hobby, interest, or personality.
