If you have to transport furry friends around San Jose and Santa Clara but want your vehicle to stay fresh and clean, you’ll want to make sure you pet-proof your car ahead of time. See our tips below to prep your car for all your little dogs and gatos at Los Gatos Acura.

Easy Steps

Before you pet-proof your car, be sure to car-proof your pet by trimming their nails and brushing them regularly! And without even having to purchase any vehicle-specific accessories, there are several household supplies you can keep handy in your car to prevent messes or clean them up as they occur:

  • Lint roller for quick hair removal
  • Cloth Wipes and upholstery cleaner
  • Large rag or towel for muddy paws
  • Window cleaner and paper towels for smudges
  • Car freshener or antimicrobial essential oils like peppermint or orange

Road Trip Tip

If you are going on a road trip or long ride around Monterey with your pet, cover your windows with clear plastic wrap to protect them from nose smudges and slobber. Then you can peel the covers off at the end of the trip!

More Ways to Purrfectly Pet-Proof Your Vehicle

Gear up with accessories like seat covers, car hammocks, seat belt harnesses, cargo covers, and ramps, so you can explore more things to do in Los Gatos with your furry friend. Explore more Acura accessories, take a test drive, or learn about AcuraLink navigation technology at Los Gatos Acura.
