To be frank, our dogs and pets live a more luxurious life than most humans. Naturally, we want to give them the best car rides possible, and there are plenty of options, such as car carriers, to make that happen. Here, we focus on car seats and beds for dogs. The former suit smaller dogs, while the latter are better for larger breeds. Small breeds have a unique problem in the car which is not being able to see out of the window perched on the car seat.

Some dogs loathe car travel, in which case making sure they can see out of the window is a non-issue, and your main challenge is to keep your dog from panicking or vomiting all over the car. However, if your little Shih Tzu or enormous Irish Wolfhound relishes a car ride then read on because we've provided you with a definitive list of the best car booster seats for small dogs, and car beds for larger dogs.
