MINI are going to partner with Dogs Trust the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and make dealerships dog friendly, while offering advice on dog safe driving.

The British firm will welcome dogs into dealerships with bowls of water and mats, while working with the charity’s canine behaviour experts to educate customers on how to keep dogs happy on car journeys. 

“With more dogs in families now than ever before, we want to help make sure they travel safely and enjoy the ride,” said Mini UK director David George.

Dr Jenna Kiddie, Head of Canine Behaviour at Dogs Trust says, “As the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, we’re delighted to be part of MINI’s journey to becoming fully dog friendly.

“It’s really important that your car is right for the whole family, including your four-legged passenger, whose needs and safety requirements are slightly different to ours. It’s wonderful to see MINI, such an iconic automotive brand, considering the needs of dog owners, so they can make sure their beloved canine family members are safe and comfortable when on the road.”

MINI aims to be the UKs first official dog-friendly car retailer by 2022.
