Traveling with Dogs: 11 Dogs Who Love Car Rides

There’s nothing quite like traveling with dogs. Most pooches love a good car ride spent with their cheeks flopping in the wind, their head bobbing up and down and a big toothy grin spread across their face.

While getting behind the wheel of a car might seem like a chore to you, to them, even a spin around the block is the adventure of a lifetime. And all it takes is five little words: “Wanna go for a ride?”

Here are 10 dogs who love riding in the car with their hoomans.

1. Road-Trip Ready

Murphy clearly is ready to hit the open road.

2. Twinning So Hard

“But first, shades!”

3. Car Seat Snoozin’

Just get Chewie in his car seat, and he’ll happily nap until you get back home.

4. Sun’s Out, Tongue’s Out

When your favorite song comes on the radio.

5. Mean Muggin’

These pups wonder why they have to sit in traffic jams created by hoomans when all they want to do is flap in the wind.

6. A Watchful Eye

Admiring the scenery while looking for squirrels.

7. Personal Driver

Your driver, Horton, will arrive in two minutes.

8. Riding in Style

“Get in the car, hooman; adventures await!”

9. Enjoying the Scenery

“Maybe if I drool on the window, my hooman will stop and get me a Puppuccino!”

10. Dog Steals Car, Smiles Nonstop

Grand theft auto never looked so adorable.

11. Takin’ It Easy

Ollie enjoys the simple things in life: beef-flavored dog treats, long rides in the car and naptime with this hooman.

All of these doggos clearly love the car, and if your pup does too, never forget—safety first! Just as your body is protected from a potential accident with a seat belt, theirs should be, too. Keep your dog safe during car rides by getting the right supplies, like a seat-belt tether, a dog car seat or a dog carrier that can be securely stowed.
