Maybe you love your dog so much you can't bear to be without it. Many drivers take their dogs along for a ride in the car, so what's the problem? For the beloved canine, the problems could be issues of comfort and safety. To make things go smoothly for your four-legged friend, here are some pet-friendly car tips to consider.

If your pet travels in the backseat, you'll want to place the appropriate seat covers and floormats in there. Dogs' paws can get dirty. The covers help keep the car clean. Also, does the backseat area have climate control? If not, you may wish to look for this feature when car shopping.

You may transport your dog in a cargo area if your vehicle has one. Installing a cargo grate barrier adds some extra safety. You don't want to make it easy for the dog to run away when you open the hatch.
