Paws for thought
Recently I have noticed rather a lot of new vans in my suburb which advertise dog walking services. I know such enterprises have always been around – in fact when I first moved here I considered it as a possibility.
But it does seem to be a business that is experiencing boom times. As the vans that carry these pooches all look the same they must be an “ideal” pet carrying vehicle.
For dog lovers out there – some car manufacturers have already thought about how to make their vehicle more attractive. Honda has “Honda-Dog” – a Japanese language website which gives information about dog friendly cafes and hotels as well as the dimensions of their cars which are dog friendly.
A US based website, dogcars.com have been giving “paws” ratings on cars which are solely based on doggy concerns such as how well a car holds dogs and whether the seats fold flat.
Because I don’t like my tyres being “marked” by dogs walking down the street and because this is a tyre blog, it did get me thinking….. is there scope for a different kind of paw rating just for tyres? The higher the paw rating the more likely the dog wont do their business…..
