Dog car seat that you find in the market nowadays comes with a lot of different design and features. You don't think that dog car seat is just a box-shaped or just a base for the seat of yourcar like a mat that is placed on car seat, do you? No no no, not like that. If like that, you don't need to spend money just to buy a dog car seat. You can use unused newspapers to pad or even I could use the cardboard or basket. Yes, you got what I mean? I mean you put your dog in a cardboard box and when you driving. Try to imagine if you are in that cardboard box and not your cutie and lovely dog. You are traveling to the beach or the mountains and it may take at least 2 hours arrived at the destination. Do you feel comfortable to sit and wait for it in a cardboard box? I suggest you should not need to bring your dog on the way if the trip will give inconvenience to your dog.
