So you want to take a road trip with your pup. Maybe you want to just run to the park and run around with your four-legged friend. The car isn’t immediately the most dog-durable place for your pup. Here are a few tips we’ve learned from our travels:
Use a water-proof dog-hammock! These are great for keeping your pup’s hair, any leftover lake water, and dirt away from the rest of your interior. If you don’t have a hammock, a blanket can work just as well
We use a wool blanket for the seats! This catches all types of dog hair and dirt. (yes even the fluffy hair that floats around the car)
When your pup sheds A LOT, try this FurzOff Pet hair remover. Works great on our carpets. A rubber brush helps to get the hard to reach corners
Microfiber towels are your friend. They take in a ton of water and can stow to be pretty compact. Use them on the dog, use them for your seats, maybe don’t use the same one for both.
Some seat cleaner (or something like SimpleGreen) will be a good way to keep your car interior looking new. Also, your windows will probably have a bunch of nose prints on them
Clean any drool marks if you can – we fostered a dog who drooled puddles out the side of the car. This can cause sun spotting especially with dark paint.
