What’s the best dog bed for a car?

When it comes to car travel, dogs can cause complications to your journey. Depending on the personality of your dog, this can vary in a few different ways. Some get agitated, some get overly excited and others are quite happy to chill out and watch the world go by.

Travelling, particularly over long distances doesn’t come naturally to dogs. So, ensuring they’re comfortable for the journey is one way of making sure they stay happy and content. Having a dog bed for your car can be a great way of going about this. But what makes the perfect dog bed for long journeys?

Size matters

There are two things you need to consider before getting a dog bed for your car, how big is your dog? And how big is your car?

If you’ve got a big dog, then sadly they’re unlikely to fit in a Mini Cooper. For smaller dogs such as a Jack Russell’s, they’re likely to fit in any size car and their dog bed will be small enough to fit in the boot. Donut dog beds are the perfect size for smaller dogs and fit nicely into a car. For larger dogs, it’s likely they’ll need a far bigger mattress bed.

Does the age of your dog matter?

Travelling on uneven and beaten roads can be a real test for our suspension, but also for our poor dogs that don’t have a seat belt to keep them in place. They don’t have any cushioning, that’s why a dog bed can be of great help to them and their joints.

This can particularly cause issues for older dogs and have long-lasting effects. They’re more susceptible to arthritis and may need support getting in and out of the boot. Dog beds contain high-quality crumb foam which supports your dogs’ joints and provides good circulation.

Where are you going to take them?

When you’re taking your dog for a walk around the countryside, it’s highly likely they’re going to get wet and muddy, there’s not much you can do about it!  This then leaves you with a dirty and wet pooch jumping into the car getting your boot and their bed all mucky.

For instances like this, it proves useful to have a bed specific for your car. With a specific bed in the car, you stop any outside bugs or health hazards entering your home. This helps keep your dog and house a healthier place. Dog beds are easy to wash so you’ll be able to kill off all potential hazards.
