Others can claim that their transport services are safe, but unless they are using Teslas, they can’t claim to be the safest. Teslas are statistically 10 times safer than all other cars on the road, so we can proudly say that this is the safest, most secure way for your pup to travel on four wheels.

Dog Hop uses the all-electric Tesla Model Y SUV as it’s fleet vehicle, and just like every other Tesla, it’s the safest vehicle in it’s class. The Model Y has an EPA estimated range of 326 miles, making it perfectly suited for long-distance travel.
With that said, we make frequent stops to charge the vehicle, approximately every 2 to 3 hours. This allows plenty of time for your dog to eat, drink, play, or do their business. If you are interested in learning more about the Model Y, click here.
If you prefer that your dog travel in a crate, we have that option. We utilize USA made, 5 Star Crash Tested Gunner® crates. Some pets feel safer and are less stressed when traveling inside of a crate. This will depend on your own knowledge of your pup. Of course, not every dog will fit inside of our Gunner crates. For larger dogs, we utilize the MIMsafe Variocage. Certain large breeds simply will not fit into any of our crash-rated crates and will travel by harness and safety tether.
