Pet-Proofing Car Tips in Preparation for National Pet Month

Pet-Proofing Car Tips

April is National Pet Month—the time of the year where we all pay special attention to our furry friends. Many pets, dogs in particular, love a leisurely drive in the car (though they might get suspicious if you mention the vet).

Unfortunately, shedding pets can make a big mess in the backseat, so we’ve put together a brief list of pet-proofing car tips:

  • Put a blanket or a plastic tarp over the backseat of your car, so that no matter how much your pet sheds, you’ll be able to remove the covering and wash it.
  • If your dog tends to slobber all over the window, consider covering the glass with plastic wrap to protect it.
  • For smaller pets, like cats, keeping them in a carrier while in the car is not only much safer for the cat but also will keep your car free from cat hair.
  • Keep in mind that plastic floor mats are much easier to clean, in the event of “spills,” than fabric mats.
