You want to make sure that your dog loves going for a car ride.
The best way I know to do this is by starting with short journeys to the park. Go somewhere the dog will have plenty of fun. Play with your dog for a while and then drive back home.
If you do this two or three times a week your dog will soon associate going in the car with a fun time
Allowing the dog to see out the window will usually means a happier pooch while traveling.
Car Seats For Small Dogs
For smaller dogs not tall enough to see out a window while sitting, give some thought to providing them with a Lookout Pet Car Seat.
These elevate your dog so they can see out the window. You can opt for a seat the accommodates the size of your dog to boosts him just 4-6 inches. Or you can go for a taller lookout type seat that will raise him as much as 6-12 inches.
The best car seats for dogs even have small storage drawers that house the food, water bowls, leashes, or other supplies you might need on your trip.
Dog car seat covers keep your car seats clean while travelling with your little associates.

1.0 Riding with pugs in cars requires a few common sense rules.Never let your dog in the front seat especially if your car has air bags.They can be seriously injured if the air bag deploys. Dogs love to sit next to their owner in the front. For their safety, put them in the back seat. If you don’t have a car seat or a cover I suggest you use a pet safety harnesses to keep your dog safe. They hook right into the seat belt.
2.0 Dogs can get very excited when reaching a destination. They will want to hop straight out of the car the moment you stop. It can prove tricky to get control of them at this juncture. Your dog is fired up and could easily just run into the road.
3.0 Do not leave a dog in a car in sunlight. Even if the temperature outside is moderate. Cars are airtight and become hot inside. If you have to leave your dog in a car for a short while, park in the shade with at least one window partly open.
4.0 Car sickness may be a concern when transporting dogs in cars. This is less likely in dogs that are used to car travel since they were puppies. It can still be a problem in some dogs.
Make sure that your dog can see out of a window and that there is fresh air – open a window.If it is still a problem, a vet can recommend car sickness products and dosages.
Riding with pugs in cars should never be a distressing experience for your dog. It should be fun and a good way to bond with your dog.
One Last Thing
I’m sure you can’t help smiling when you see a happy dog hanging his head out of a car window.
It’s because of this joyful sense of freedom that it’s so hard to convince their owners that their dog would be equally happy tethered. It may be even harder trying to convince the dog!
These days with more pets traveling by auto, law enforcement agencies are campaigning hard for seat-belt harnesses, car seats and other restraints for dogs.
Safe-guarding your dog while traveling is the responsible thing to do.
