It’s a chin rest for your dog.
If you and your dog go on a lot of car rides together, then you need to try this!
We got a Comfort Cruiser doggie chin rest for our dog.
Destin just loves it!
In brief, it makes a bumpy car ride less noticeable — from your dog’s point of view.
Warning: Don’t Drive Too Fast!
The reason: The faster you drive, the more the wind loosens the grip. Eventually, it will just blow off completely and land in the back seat.
Weeks ago however, (on a mad dash through town to get to the Smoothie King before it closed for the night) I guess we hit speeds of 55 mph, and without thinking about it, we ended up losing the Comfort Cruiser that night.
If Your Dog Likes To Stick Its Head Out The Window…
- Warning: Yes, dogs can fall out the car window! (Mind did.)
- Here’s how we keep our dogs securely inside the vehicle at all times.
I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I've always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what's 'normal' and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I'm not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've written over 500 articles for dog owners on this site!
