dog car hacks the auto connection

Whether you’re cruising cross country or scooting across town, we’ve got three car hacks that will make traveling with your best friend a breeze.

Pack a Squeegee

These handy tools are for more than just windows! In fact, they’re a great instrument for getting the dog hair out of the seat upholstery in your quality used car.

Try a Car Seat or Hammock

If your dog gets anxious on car rides or just needs a little extra comfort, try a car seat (like this little nest). Other options are readily available, including backseat hammocks that’ll have your pet traveling in incredible comfort.

Bring a Dryer Sheet

If you’re on the road, especially in warmer destinations, chances are you could run into a thunderstorm. To help ease your dog’s stress during these storms, pull out your handy dryer sheet and rub it over their fur (we find the scentless sheets work best in such a confined space). The sheet will lower the buildup of static electricity in their fur caused by the storm. In turn, they’ll be happy as a button traveling in your quality used car.
