Audi Nashua is a dealership devoted to putting family first, including your furriest members of the family. Whether you’re headed to the grocery store or headed for a road trip, bringing you pets along for the ride requires some prep. Today, we’re happy to share some quick tips regarding traveling with pets and information on a couple of our most pet-friendly vehicles.

The first aspect to consider while transporting a pet, such as a cat or a dog, is their safety. Whether you choose to crate, harness, or otherwise restrain your pet during travel, it’s important to make sure they are secure inside the vehicle, and not loose in the front seat.

Bringing along all of your pet’s necessities like food and water is important, as well as taking routine bathroom breaks on long drives. You might even consider compiling a pet travel kit with snacks, favorite toys, waste disposal bags, and a pillow or blanket so they are comfortable for the ride.

There are also various extra vehicle accessories that come in handy for transporting pets. All-weather floor mats, which come standard in many models, and seat covers can protect the interior of your vehicle and make it easier to clean after a family trip.

SUV models such as the 2018 Audi Q5 are ideal for transporting pets due to their extra cargo room, split-folding seats, and automatic liftgates. Wagon models like the 2018 Audi A4 Allroad provide extra comfort and versatility for pets, too.

Come by our dealership near Andover to view these two models and many others in our vast new vehicle inventory. We look forward to helping you find a vehicle that’s perfect for the whole family!
