Pet Accessories For Your Car

Pet Accessories For Your Car

If you’re a pet owner, you’ll agree that it’s sometimes challenging to go places with our four-legged companions in tow.  Whether it’s a short trip to the vet or a long haul adventure to the cottage, our vehicle is the most common form of transportation for getting our pets to and from a select destination.  This is why it’s important to travel with the proper pet accessories that will protect you, your car and most importantly, your family friend.  

At one point or another, we have all moaned and groaned about drool, claw marks or the dirt left on the interior of our vehicle from our dog.  Fortunately, these problems can be solved easily and affordably.. 


Seat covers are probably the most common pet travel accessory out there.  They are easy to use and will keep your interior clean by protecting your seats from, dirt, scratch marks and odors that are sometimes associated with pets.

This accessory is probably the most overlooked, yet it’s the most important!  Our dogs’ safety should always be a top priority when traveling in the car.  

We would never leave a child without a seatbelt, so why should our dog be any different.  Seatbelts will ensure that your dog travels safely and comfortably.  

A seatbelt or harness will prevent the risk of injury in those instances where you are forced to slam on your brakes and in more serious situations; it will prevent them from flying through the window. 

Broad, well padded chest plate for extra protection and comfort. Harness is designed to make it simple to put on & take off any dog with adjustable straps & quick-release buckles.

Ergonomic design for maximum dog comfort & protection during sudden stops - limits driver distraction and reduces potential injuries.

Includes a seat belt loop so harness can be used with any vehicle seat belt, just clip on the detachable seat belt strap and you are ready to use - clasp swivels for added comfort while traveling.

This is also a great harness for everyday walks, just clip your dogs leash to the back D-ring and you are ready to go! Comfortable design is just what every dog appreciates. Machine Washable very mild detergent.

Chest Girth: Measure behind dog's front legs for girth. Harness should be snug but not restrictive. Allow for a finger to slide between the dog & harness.
