Release the Hounds! A Dog Owner’s Guide to Buying a Car

Dogs are the only animals that love their automobiles more than their owners. The wind in their fur, tongue out flapping — it's heaven. Therefore, dog owners have a four-legged friend to think about when they buy a new car. 

We found this article with advice from editor Amy Tokic helpful when choosing the right car for dog owners. Here's an excerpt:

There isn’t a one-size fits all solution. “It really depends on the dog: what kind you have, how many you have, size, weight and age,” she said. “As your dog ages, you may find that your present vehicle doesn’t cater to his needs.”

That means as your dog ages and grows, your car may need to accommodate it. “He may need more room to lie down in the backseat or a ramp to get in and out of the car.”

And of course, puppy love knows no bounds, so the more dogs you have, the more room you’ll need.

There are other important things to consider when shopping for a new car with your dog in mind. If you’re a clean freak, or if you want to maximize your resale, this will all affect what kind of car you pick.
