Dogs are man’s best friend. They are there to cheer you up after a hard day at work and offer fun when you have had a fantastic day. Our canine friends also have requirements too, including dog food and exercise, while walks on local fields or woods via a car are also enjoyable for both animal and owner.
However, the décor of your car will not benefit from muddy paw prints; but fear not, as there are a lot of car manufacturers that have designed cars that are perfect for dog owners.
Ideal for carrying large dog breeds, the Ford Kuga has a spacious boot of 96 litres and tailgate.
The Volvo XC70 was designed specifically for your pet and outdoor enthusiasts. The car has a dog barrier created to ensure your pet’s safety whilst travelling. The large Volvo also has an optional divider to keep your pet safely in the boot alongside your bags.
