How to prep your vehicle 

Before you do anything, you will need to clean out your vehicle. Make sure there are no loose objects your pet will chew on. Vacuum up any dirt, food particles or other substances. All this will help you have a nice clean slate before you start adding more to your vehicle. 

Items for your vehicle
