HOW TO PICK THE BEST DOG CARGO LINER
Choosing the best dog cargo liner doesn’t have to be complicated; if you understand their various benefits, you can narrow down your search to find exactly what you need.
For example, if you have a young puppy who cannot hold its bladder, a dog who gets car-sick, or a dog who loves to swim, you should invest in a waterproof cargo cover.
Here is a list of benefits that cargo liners offer. Take a look to see which features you need and which you can do without!
THE BENEFITS OF A DOG CARGO LINER
A Dog Cargo Liner can reduce the wear on your vehicle in various ways. Regardless of what kind of ride you have, protecting its interior preserves its resale value and keeps it fresh.
1. Reduce the Amount of Dog Hair
We love our dogs but let’s face it, getting masses of dog hair in places it shouldn't be can be frustrating. Some dogs shed more than others (think husky vs. a chihuahua), and controlling dog hair can be a real challenge to some owners.
Depending on how hot it is and if your dog is the type to get stressed about car rides, your dog may actually shed more in the car, leaving you with a real mess to vacuum up.
Seat covers and cargo liners catch the fur so that you can shake them out after a trip with your dog. Machine washable liners make life even easier. You can remove the liner and brush it off, hose it off, or put it in a wash cycle at home to keep things fresh.
Cargo liners keep hair under control, so you don't have to do a complete car cleaning every time you and your pup go for a ride.
2. Prevent Damage to The Car’s Interior
No one likes a damaged cargo area. Dog cargo liners create a barrier, so paws and claws scrape the liner rather than your car's interior and upholstery.

3. Prevent Lingering Stains and Odor
We love our dogs to death, but they can be smelly. Especially after taking our dogs to swim or if they decide to take a mud bath on the way back from a hike, they can leave some unpleasant odors behind.
This smell can stay in your car for some time after your dog leaves the carpeting or canvas a mess. Sometimes, nothing will break down the odors aside from a thorough steam cleaning.
A cargo liner saves you from having to clean your car by catching the wet fur, mud, potty accidents and other residues that could unleash some serious stink. It's as easy as removing the liner and tossing it in the wash.
4. Prevent Slipping and Sliding
Not only do cargo liners protect your car from damage and unwanted odors, but they can also keep your dog safe by preventing slipping and sliding around during car travel. This can be a game-changer for elderly dogs with sore hips.
Often, pet owners use blankets or towels to protect their cargo area and keep pets comfortable. A non-slip cargo liner is a more reliable option, and your pet will be more safe and comfortable.

5. Give Your Dog More Room
We all want our furry friends to be more comfortable when riding with us, especially during longer trips. Many cargo liners are designed to cover the folding seats in the back so your pet can have a larger area to stretch and sleep, unlike kennels.
Having a cargo liner is a must for road trips, as you and your dog can travel happier. This extra space is beneficial when leaving your dog in the cargo area for extended periods. With the spare room, your dog will be less restless and will not be as prone to destructive chewing while waiting for you.
