Owning a dog is incredibly rewarding as they provide companionship, protection and lots of fun. Sometimes you want to be able to take your dog along with you to the park, the beach or even on holidays.

The good news is that you don’t have to own a large SUV to accommodate your dog. If you’re looking for some ideas for a car that is going to be practical for you and your dog, we’ve compiled a list of some smaller practical options that could work for you.

Funky and practical

A stylish, yet practical option for the younger market is the Kia Soul. It’s a high tech and modern hatch has heaps of storage spaces to keep you and your best friend happy.

With plenty of colours and great range standard features including 17inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, reverse parking sensors, and Bluetooth you’ll be having loads of fun in this.

It’s great for a medium sized dog and four passengers.

Little adventurer

If you’re the active type and love to head off the beaten path every now and again, the Nissan Juke just might be what you need. With its sporty design and AWD system available in the Ti model, no adventure will be boring at all.

There’s a boot perfectly sized for a dog and passenger room for four and there are many accessories to add and a rear view camera as standard to watch out for the little ones.

It’s all about access

If you want a vehicle that is going to provide lots of accessibility for yourself and your dog, the Toyota Rukus is a great consideration.

With a box like design, the doors are nice and wide, the roofline is high and the boot is easy to access for your dog. Thanks to the hardwearing materials, you won’t have to worry about wear and tear for some time.

Parking the Rukus is also super easy with its great visibility and there is a huge range of accessories including a Scuffguard to protect the paintwork on the bumper when loading and unloading the boot.

All-round family car

For the great all-rounder family car, look no further than the Holden VF Commodore Sportwagon. It’s great to drive, packed with technology and the spacious boot is great to have one or two dogs without compromising space for passengers.

The low entry height is a bonus for dogs to get in unassisted, plus optional cargo nets can be added and removed easily.
