Over the years my family have had a variety of dogs, most of which were able to enjoy a trip in the car.
I understand that someone has come up with the idea of ‘doggles’ for our furry friends so that they can stick their heads out of the open window and let the wind blow in their face, but not their eyes.

Maggie’s predecessor Barney loved a ride when he was young, but started to pace in the back which was very distracting and potentially dangerous, even though he was secured.
Unfortunately, it got so bad that we couldn’t take him anywhere and he had to stay at home. This wasn’t really a problem as he had an outdoor kennel and was content to watch the world go by through the gate, and would greet the postman affectionately as he brought him treats.
Maggie is a well travelled dog having clocked up some 30,000 miles when she was two years of age as we took her everywhere when we were house hunting way back in 2007.
We cannot go for a trip anywhere without her now as she suffers from separation issues and howls if we leave her behind.
