One of the BEST things we ever bought for our big dog was a doggie chin rest called a Comfort Cruiser Window Bumper.
It reminds me of those noodles that you play with in a swimming pool… only this is a bit softer.
It’s squishy soft like those memory-foam pillows.
It’s also similar to those addictively squishy stress balls.
Car Rides Are More Enjoyable
We got our Comfort Cruiser from PetSmart.
And since that first day we used it, Destin has seemed to enjoy car rides even more.
For comparison, here’s Destin sticking his head out the window WITHOUT the doggie noodle, as I call it:
Car Rides Are Safer For Dogs
The Comfort Cruiser window bumper makes car rides much safer for your dog.
In the case of a sudden stop or unexpected bump, it protects your dog’s neck and chin from the glass edge of the window. (Please note, whenever Destin is in the car with us, we always use a doggie seatbelt, as well.)
It can also be cut to fit any car window, and it cleans with soap and water.
The best part is it installs and removes VERY easily… You just cup it over the window. It’s shaped to perfectly grip the window.
There is one precaution you should take however when using the Comfort Cruiser doggie chin rest…
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
