The Best and Worst New 2014 Volkswagen Models for Dog Owners
If you aren’t one of the millions of Americans who owns a dog then perhaps you just wouldn't understand why so many dog owners bring man (and woman’s) best friend with them everywhere they go even in the car. But when doing so you really do need to consider if the car you have is suitable for a canine passenger. That, of course, is why whenever we road test a new Volkswagen we bring along our very own canine road tester Roxy, a Boxer that we rescued after her previous owner decided they couldn't take care of her anymore.
Now Roxy considers more things than just the comfort of the back seat when she is riding around in a test Volkswagen. She likes to have a rear seat air conditioning vent for hot days like you can find in models such as the Golf and GTI and her personal driver likes it when the U-rings most owner’s might use for car seats are easily accessible to attach her fitted safety harness. Roxy may only weigh 45 pounds but if we had an accident in one of our Volkswagen testers she could get seriously hurt without proper restraint just like any human occupant. So remember to always consider your dog’s safety before heading to the mall in your Jetta or Passat.
So as follows is a list compiled by Roxy the dog and her human so that new car buyers who love to bring their dogs with them everywhere will pick out just the perfect Volkswagen for them. Because if you have a 150 pound Bull Mastiff you may want to reconsider that 2014 Beetle.
Excellent for all Breeds:
