Dog Car Bars – Protect Your Pets
Although we call them ‘doggy bars’ – our vertical interior security bars are perfect for keeping any pet safe in the back of your bakkie – from potbelly pigs to Great Dane puppies. With doggy bars installed, you can safely transport your pet with the slider windows open. Open windows also means the back of the bakkie is ventilated, keeping it cool and guaranteeing complete comfort while traveling with your pet on warm days.
Benefits of Doggy Bars:
• Stops your pets from jumping out of the opened windows, e.g. while the vehicle is parked.
• Allows for proper ventilation of your canopy area without compromising the security of your pets or goods.
• Protects pedestrians from your pets, preventing them from sticking their heads out.
• Protects your pets from pedestrian or exterior interference while driving or when the vehicle is parked.
General Tips for Traveling with Pets
Before you head out on your long or short journey, whether it’s just down to your local shops or on a long roadtrip along the coast, there are a few key essentials to keep in mind when travelling with you pets:
• Check before hand whether your pets will be allowed at your destination. There are many shops, hotels & facilities that allow pets – but just double check to be safe before you set off.
• While traveliing long distances, make sure they are fed and have water available or are given water.
• Keep doggy bags on hand, to keep your pets mess & mishaps to a minimum, both in the back of your bakkie as well as in public & private grounds.
• For longer trips, especially across borders, have your pets medical & vaccination cards on hand (as well as make sure they have had all their necessary shots before you leave).
• While travelling, keep the canopy windows open wide, the doggy bars will keep them safe, while the airflow will keep them cool.
• The back of a bakkie can be uncomfortable when travelling – keep some comfy cushion or bedding in the back for your beloved pet.
• Never – EVER – leave your pet in your vehicle, even with water available or the windows open – your pets can easily get heat stroke.
