What Are the Most Dog-Friendly Vehicles? There’s a List for That!
If you own a dog that regularly accompanies you on road trips or weekend treks to the cottage, the interior design of a vehicle, or more specifically its level of dog-friendliness, may actually be a selling point (or a deterrent) for you.
Here’s an example: for many dog owners, the ease with which dogs can get in and out of the vehicle is one of the main considerations when shopping for a car/SUV/truck.
That said, most dog owners are probably not going to drag their pet along to a dealership for a test drive of a potential new purchase. It’s with that in mind that the folks at Autotrader.com publish, every year, a list of the best vehicles for dogs and their owners. The ninth annual such list is now out, just in time for National Dog Day on Friday.
Brian Moody, executive editor of Autotrader, sees the importance of fitting your vehicle to your needs - and to those of your dog: “Some owners bring dogs to dealerships and some don’t. They should be doing that. They’re not doing you a favor by selling you a $40,000 thing. It’s your decision to make, so you should take your stuff down there, whether it’s a child safety seat or a dog. Make sure it works for you.”
