Dog Proof Ride

Real talk - My dogs are like my kids. They are my life and they take over EVERYTHING. My car is no exception so when I became a #drivenambassador I knew I needed to up my dog proofing game. I began the search to find all things dog friendly to protect my ride from my furry children.
You'd be surprised at all the requirements for a good car seat cover (trust me, I certainly was). It needs to be washable, durable, able to be tightly secured on the seats but also easy to move when the passengers are people. Then you have to factor in the doors of the car, and keeping the dogs contained, etc etc.
After a few trials and errors I found my favorite set of dog accessories. These are guaranteed to keep your car scratch and dirt free....close to it at least! My Lexus and I wouldn't survive without them.
- car seat cover - I love this one because it is like a hammock and protects the front and back seats. It also has weights to tuck into the seats elastic bands to make sure the cover stays secure.
- side door covers - M & E aren't always behaved (shocking I know) and in their excitement they can jump on the door sides. These covers are perfect for just that.
- seat belts and harnesses - because safety first!
- water bowl - obviously
Having all of these allows us to travel with ease and keeps my Lexus RX shiny and fresh. What are your favorite pet accessories for your car? I'd love to hear!!
