Fun fact: Our first two days with our brindle pugs Bear and Rolo were on the road. When we adopted them, we had to pick them up from out of state. No better way to be initiated into the #FabFam than a good, long road trip! Since then, the pups join us on small errands around town (they especially love getting to join us when picking the kids up from school). Just like our human babies, it’s important to keep our fur babies safe and happy in the car, too. For National Dog Day, Autotrader is sharing tips and tricks on dog-friendly car features, as well as tools to find your next canine-approved vehicle. They’re also supporting a great cause!
For National Dog Day, Autotrader has created Dogtrader.com, a paw-some online resource (see what I did there?) with helpful news, reviews, and even an adoptable dog search engine (powered by Adopt-a-Pet.com)! Dogtrader helps pet parents find a vehicle with their pet in mind. These fur babies are a big part of our lives after all, so why shouldn’t we keep them in mind during our car buying experience?! If you’re really committed to finding dog-approved vehicles, you can even check out Autotrader’s article on the 10 best cars for pets. Since Autotrader has the largest selection of vehicles to browse, it’s the perfect resource for helping you find the best car match for your dog-loving lifestyle.
This is the 6th year Autotrader is celebrating National Dog Day, and this year they’re going a step further. On Dogtrader.com, Autotrader is making a limited quantity of ‘dog goggles’ available. The goggles not only help your furry friend look his or her coolest on the road, but also keep their eyes safe! But the best part is that Autotrader will donate funds to Adopt-a-Pet with every pair given away!
Whether traveling with your dog or just taking a quick ride through town, it’s easy to see how much dogs love being in the car with you. Bear and Rolo actually do circles every time we grab our car keys and follow us to the front door, in hopes that they get to come along when we are leaving the house. The way they light up when we say “come on” is priceless!
If you feel like your car isn’t safe for a pet for whatever reason you could always upgrade to a new car. If your car is not in the best of condition you can sell your broken down vehicle to a company or use a site like Craigslist.
