Land Rover announces pet accessories for National Dog Day

To celebrate National Dog Day (or International Dog Appreciation Day if you live outside the US) on August 26, Land Rover has announced a range of pet accessories specially designed for its vehicles. Land Rover has bundled these accessories into packs, which will be available this winter.

The Pet Load Space Protection Pack includes a splash-proof water bowl, full-height luggage divider and padded loadspace liner that protects the floor, rear seatbacks and side walls from paw prints. Buyers who opt for the Pet Transportation package receive a collapsible carrier bag, a rubber cargo area mat and a splash-proof water bowl.

The Pet Car and Access Pack includes the padded cargo area liner, luggage divider and a ramp that helps dogs enter the cargo area. This ramp, which can support pooches up to 187 pounds, has a high-grip tread pattern to prevent slippage. Also included in this package is a portable rinse system to wash those paws after a day outdoors. It can hold up to 1.7 gallons of water, which Land Rover says should be enough for a five-minute shower. It could also be enough rinsing time to save your interior from wet dog jerks throwing mud.

Land Rover is bringing the Pet Packs to every model in its lineup in the US, including Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport, in addition to Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Evoque. Buyers who don’t want to splurge for one of the three packs can purchase the accessories individually.
