You might’ve worked out that here at MINI we’re paw-sitively passionate about pooches. Which is why we’re on a mission to help the nation’s dogs travel happier.
Whether they’re sitting in the back, boot or in their favourite carrier, dogs need enough room to get comfortable.
MINI cars can accommodate just about any breed, from sighthounds to spaniels to terriers, and everything in between. The MINI Countryman and MINI Clubman are our biggest models, with surprisingly generous room in the back. They also have the perfect dog car boot, too. In fact, 59% of MINI Countryman drivers surveyed said the spacious boot was their favourite feature for dog travel.
And if you’re keen on that iconic, original MINI look then there’s also the MINI 5-door Hatch. Think of it as the more spacious brother to the 3-door, with two extra doors and added rear leg and boot space.
Easy access is essential for dogs, as they’ll start and end each journey hopping into the back or boot of your car.
A low base can help dogs get in with ease. Which can be especially handy for less agile hounds, or smaller dogs. For some very small breeds, and older dogs, a low base will be a great start but they may also need a ramp too.
Each dog’s needs are unique, so it’s important to tailor the accessibility of your car to what works for your furry friend.
