DogGear Philosophy

When you’re looking for the right dog car seat, make sure to consider the safety features, the ease of use, and the proper size that would fit your dog. A small dog, for instance, might do with a booster seat that would allow them a glimpse of the outside world. Medium-sized dogs need to be comfortable and stable in a car. For large dogs, however, we don’t recommend a car seat. Car seat covers are a much better option here due to the difficulty of strapping large canines down.

Whichever car seat you end up choosing, your dog will definitely be more secure and comfortable! Start measuring them up and see which option will work best based on their needs, or try our quiz to get a personalized recommendation.
