Frequently Asked Questions About Dog Car Seats

Do dogs need car seats?

Dogs need car seats for their safety, and car seats make riding with your dog safer for you, too. An unsecured dog can distract you while driving or be seriously injured if you have to suddenly stop. Another upside of dog car seats is that they protect your car interior from dirt, hair, claw scratches and moisture, and they can make your dog feel more comfortable during travel.

Are dog car seats safe?

Dog car seats are safe, but you need to make sure you buy one with the right safety features and use it according to the instructions. A safety harness is a must to protect your dog against sudden stops, and you should always put your car seat in the back seat—not the front—because dogs can be injured by airbags. The safest choice for smaller dogs is often a crash-tested, carrier-style seat that has an included safety harness. Larger dogs can use a hammock-style seat with a safety harness attached.

What should I look for in a dog car seat?

You should look for four main features in a dog car seat. Look for sturdy construction, water-resistant design, comfortable surfaces and a safety harness to restrain your pup during sudden stops. Other desirable features include machine washable materials and easy portability for travel. You can find crash-tested dog car seats for an extra measure of safety, or seats that boost your dog up so he can look out the window. Be sure to choose a seat that is the appropriate size for your dog and follow all instructions for safely securing your pup.

What is the best car seat for dogs?

The best car seat for dogs is one that will let your pup sit comfortably and safely in your car. Smaller dogs may benefit from a carrier style seat or booster seat, while larger dogs might enjoy a hammock that makes the back seat into a comfy and protected bed. A good car seat should also provide some restraint in the event of a sudden stop, so look for one with a harness leash restraint or other pup-friendly safety device.
