ŠKODA UK has developed a comprehensive range of accessories designed to keep dogs safe and secure on the move. The range, developed using ŠKODA’s Simply Clever philosophy, combines the very latest in canine-friendly materials with high-tech structures to protect even the most spirited of hounds.
Among the many accessories available is a Dog Safety Belt. This specially-developed, easy to install belt prevents your frisky dog from moving around in the car while travelling. The doggie seat belt comes in four sizes – from S to XL – meaning that everything from a Chihuahua to a Great Dane benefit. Prices start from £50 including VAT for the small version, with medium, large and XL costing £65, £75 and £85 respectively. (INR 5000 – 8460 approx.)
The Backseat Protector has been designed to minimise the impact of malting, muddy dogs. Whether you’re carrying a Chow in a Citigo or a Shih tzu in Superb, the ŠKODA Backseat Protector (£30/INR 3000 including VAT) will protect your precious back-seat from canine intervention. By attaching to the front and rear headrests, the protector forms a hammock area. The material is water-resistant and has a non-slip surface to further increase safety on the move.
The ŠKODA dog guard has been developed for those who like their dogs to romp in their own private space in the back of estate cars. Available for Fabia, Octavia and Superb estate models, the grille is light and easy to install, and allows the driver a clear view of the road behind. For smaller dogs, ŠKODA also offers a system that divides the boot space into two – providing separate spaces for luggage and man’s best friend. Prices start from £105.50 including VAT.
Other accessories from the dog safety pack include a range of tailor-fitted protective mats and inserts. The rubber boot mat is moulded exactly to the shape of the boot-floor and fits so snugly, it doesn’t require any special fixings. The ŠKODA Genuine Accessories range also includes a robust Plastic Protective Liner for the boot.
