Learn More About Dog Car Seats

Many dogs—especially small breeds—like to sit on their mom or dad’s lap as they drive. While you may think it’s because they love you—and they do—they also want to see out the window and watch the world go by. A dog car seat can be an important accessory that allows them to have a good vantage point while keeping them out of your way for a safe ride. Check out our dog care sheet for more supplies you may need and our new dog owner guide for more information on caring for your pup.

If you have a small breed that weighs less than 30 lbs., a dog car seat can give them a comfortable place where they can feel safe on the journey. This can help prevent them from wandering around the car or sitting on your lap and interfering with your driving. Larger breeds may not need car seats, as they can already see out the window, but can benefit from dog car seat belts and harnesses, which help keep them secure in case of an accident, just as they do for people.

The best dog car seat depends on the size of your dog. Most car seats are made for small or medium-sized dogs up to 30 lbs., while larger breeds can use dog car seat belts or harnesses. You’ll also need to consider your car. Do you need to attach it to a bucket seat or a center console? There are dog car seats for all styles, so take a look at our list of best-selling dog car seats above or visit your neighborhood Petco Pet Care Center to find the one that works for you.
