We all know there is just something about a Jeep that screams fun and freedom. That whole top down, wind in your face, open road ahead, kind of excitement.

And for all you dog lovers out there, it really seems to be the same feelings your four-legged furry travelers get, too. Right?

Well, if you are out celebrating National Dog Day Monday with your best friends, you will be happy to know

Autotrader has chosen the Jeep Wrangler JL as one of its top-10 Best Vehicles for Dog Lovers.

That’s right. The off-road, adventurous, rugged, fun, Wrangler, is also perfect for your dog’s outdoor adventures as well.

In highlighting the 2019 Jeep Wrangler, Autotrader says “The removable top and doors allow your dog the ultimate ‘head out the window’ experience.” The vehicle also offers many modern conveniences such as navigation through its UConnect system, so you and your best friend can get where your going, heated steering wheel and seats for comfort, and helpful safety equipment such as forward-collision warning and braking.

Plus, as the vehicle is easily modified, you can even get some great cargo management systems like the DirtyDog Pet Divider, to help keep your animal safely in the back of your Jeep, while things like protective floor liners help keep the inside looking factory fresh.

National Dog Day is celebrated August 26th annually and was founded in 2004 by Pet and Family Lifestyle Expert, and Animal Advocate, Colleen Paige, to bring attention to the plight of animals and encourage adoption.

National Dog Day celebrates all dogs, mixed breed and pure, and is designed to help people recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year, while acknowledging family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort.
