Land Rover Accessories to Keep Your Dog Comfortable and Safe

Safety when travelling with your dog

The Highway Code states it is the driver’s responsibility to make sure dogs or other animals are suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you, or themselves if you stop quickly.

There are several options to choose from to ensure your dog travels safely in your Land Rover with you, including a dog crate, a seat-belt travel harness, a pet carrier, or a dog guard.

Here at JGS4x4 we stock an extensive range of Land Rover dog guards for every model to keep you and your four-legged friends safe and prevent any mishaps.

Easy vehicle access for your dog

If your dog is young and active it may tend to jump in and out of your Land Rover. It has been reported that there is an increased chance of joint-related health issues if this is repeated over several years. As Land Rovers are suspended a couple of feet from the ground it can also be a struggle for older dogs to gain access to your vehicle. We would highly recommend using a vehicle access dog ramp. They are easy to assemble, lightweight, collapsible, and easy on your dog’s joints – our dogs love using a vehicle access ramp!

Here at JGS4x4 we stock a universal anti-slip vehicle access dog ramp that has rubber feet on to hold the ramp in position.

Keeping your Land Rover interior as dirt-free as possible!

When it comes to keeping your Land Rover clean, we think prevention is better than cure, particularly when traveling with your dog! That is why we stock hardwearing anti-slip boot mat liners and waterproof seat covers to protect your Land Rover from those muddy paws!

Ensuring your dog is comfortable when travelling

Whether you are going for a quick drive or a long journey there are a few things to consider when travelling with your dog:

  • Secure your dog in the correct manner inline with the Highway Code.
  • Take plenty of water for your dog to stay cool and hydrated – especially on warmer days as your Land Rover can heat up quickly.
  • Consider using car window shades to help block out direct sunlight.
  • Take something familiar like their favourite blanket or toy to keep them relaxed.
  • If you are going on a long journey, plan your stops to let your dog stretch their legs, go to the toilet, and rehydrate.
