If your four-pawed furry friend prefers to travel with you on four wheels, then your pet will appreciate our readers choice for the 2009 CESAR® Five Dog Bone Award for the Automobile category. Toyota Venza takes the prize – in its debut year! With its large cargo capacity and rear hatch for easy loading and lounging, the Venza will easily become your pet’s favorite new hangout vehicle, so get ready to take to the open road! Your pup will want to feel the wind in its fur and snout in the air. The proof is in the unique, new, canine-friendly aftermarket pet products available on the Venza. From pet seatbelt buckles and harnesses to leash tethers, loading ramps and pet booster seats, this car has bark and bite. And if you and your pooch are safety hounds, you’ll appreciate this as much as our expert judges and savvy voters: Star Safety (stability control, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution, traction control and brake assist) comes standard on the Toyota Venza. Add options like a rear-seat DVD player (did somebody say 101 Dalmatians?) and touch-screen DVD navigation system to keep you on course and it’s clear why this car won paws down. Honk for Toyota, for their 2009 CESAR® Five Dog Bone Award for Pet-Friendly Automobile win. For more information visit: toyota.com/venza.
