Puppy Car Seat | The benefits of using a dog car seat for your new puppy

What is the difference between a dog car seat and a puppy car seat? Well, not much. The only difference is the age of your pup! Getting your puppy used to a dog car seat when they are young is not only beneficial for your pup but for you, as the owner, as well.

The nice thing about purchasing a dog car seat for your puppy is, depending on how big they will grow to be, you can use the same dog car seat for years. If you know your puppy will grow to be more than 30lbs you can look for dog car seat and cover combinations which are suitable for small puppies that grow into big dogs.

The benefits of using a dog car seat for your puppy:

  1. If you use a dog car seat when your dog is young it will become routine. You will not need to train your pup to use a dog car seat.
  2. Puppies are not trained yet and less likely to listen to commands. This is extremely dangerous in the car. A dog car seat will keep them safely restrained so you can focus on the road.
  3. Puppies have accidents. A dog car seat will keep your puppy in the seat so if they happen to have an accident it is contained. Most dog car seats are machine washable for easy clean-ups!
  4. Puppies are more prone to car sickness because their ear structure for balance has not fully developed. A dog car seat or a dog booster seat will sit your pup up higher which will help reduce the chances that they will get motion sick.

Upon purchasing or acquiring a new puppy it is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the puppy is well taken care of and that includes dog safety in the car. Puppies are so adorable and loveable it is easy to get caught up in their cuteness even when driving. A dog car seat will eliminate that tempting distraction by keeping your puppy safely restrained.  It will also give your puppy routine and structure whenever they get in the car.
