Dog-friendly vehicles for sale near La Crosse WI

Our pets are our family, there’s just no way around it. Sometimes, just like the other members of your family, pets need to travel along with you. That is particularly true of dogs, who often love nothing more than taking a ride (as long as it’s not to the vet). Did you know that just recently, the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica, 2019 Jeep Wrangler, and 2019 Buick Regal TourX were named among the 10 Best Cars for Dog Lovers by Autotrader? This got us thinking about the vehicles that would be good for taking Sir Charles of Woofenshire III (aka Charlie) and other doggies for a trip, as well as what makes them so dog-friendly. And you can find them right here at Sleepy Hollow Auto!

Autotrader Best Cars for Dog Loverstwo dogs in a Mopar kennel in the back of the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica

Let’s start with the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica, 2019 Jeep Wrangler, and the 2019 Buick Regal TourX, three of the vehicles named as the best for dog lovers. What was so special about these models that made Autotrader take notice and link them as such positive vehicles for our furry friends? The editors at Autotrader focused on comfort and convenience. Each of these vehicles offers plenty of space for dogs to join in on the fun, but a few other features make riding with Robert Fluffington Jr., Esq. and his favorite chew toys even easier.  

The Pacifica, for example, offers the available Stow ‘n Vac integrated vacuum cleaner to quickly and easily clean up fur or dirt your pup tracks in. It also offers the available Stow ‘n Go seating and storage system with Stow ‘n Assist and Easy Tilt, not to mention the optional Stow ‘n Go third-row seats, which make sure the pooches have some extra room in the back if needed. 

The Jeep Wrangler, aside from being iconic, offers dogs a great chance to feel the wind blowing through their fur, no doubt as the wind blows their mouths open and makes them look like they are wearing a silly grin. It also benefits from lightweight Mopar accessories like the pet kennel and all-weather floormats. 

As for the Buick Regal TourX, just take one look at it and you can see that there is plenty of space in which dogs can hang out and join you on the adventures you can seek out with that rugged and luxurious model.

These are the ones that Autotrader pointed out, but really, there are many options available to you and your pupper doggo. A crossover such as the 2019 Chevy Equinox provides plenty of room and a comfortable ride. The 2020 Ford Explorer was built for carrying a lot of people and cargo, and your canine companions can hang out in the spacious rear. The list goes on and on, really.  

Whenever you do travel with your dog, it is best to make sure he or she is secured. We recommend purchasing a solid, crash-tested harness that has been approved by the Center for Pet Safety to be sure your buddy is safe on your journey. It’s a good idea to keep some of their favorite toys along the way as well so they feel comfortable. Make sure they have food and water available, too, and don’t ever leave them in a hot vehicle.
