Cargo

Travelling with dogs usually requires a lot of things including dog crates, bowls, leashes, food and playthings. Look for vehicles with easy-to-fold down seats and a squared off back hatch for easy loading.

Safety

Look for vehicles with additional safety features, like places to tie down and secure dog crates. This helps protect both the dog and the owner in the event of a crash.

Air Flow

Dogs can easily become overheated when riding in the car, so look for vehicles with windows that allow air to flow easily into the back seats and cargo areas.

Fabrics

Owners who like to play with their dogs should purchase a vehicle with easy to wash fabrics and removable floor mats.

Recommendations

<p>Dogcars.com recommends the 2009 Dodge Caravan for its easy load features, and safety features. Volvo, Honda, and Subaru have pet-friendly features like removable mats, fabrics, and safety elements.
