Gear,装备,设备。如今,越来越多的家庭希望能在驾车出游的时候带上宠物狗,而为了带着宠物狗以及他们需要使用的各种装备,即gear,找到适合宠物搭乘的汽车就显得至关重要。

近日,美国Autotrader网站推荐了七款适合携带宠物狗旅行的最新款车型,分别是:2017款宝马X5、2018款雪佛兰科帕奇、2017款本田飞度、2017款克莱斯勒Pacifica,2017款日产Rogue、2018款斯巴鲁Crosstrek以及2018款沃尔沃XC60。

首先,这些车型都能为狗狗以及它的装备提供足够的空间,几乎所有车型的车门都很宽敞,车窗也比较大,方便狗狗进出。All of them offer plenty of space for dogs and their gear. Most also have wide doors or hatches for easy entry and exit.

此外,有些汽车品牌是会专门考虑为宠物设计一些配件的,类似于性能配件用来加强汽车性能一样。

沃尔沃和斯巴鲁是两个会为宠物专门设计配件的汽车品牌。斯巴鲁为了宣传其车型秉承宠物友好的理念,发起了一系列广告宣传活动。Volvo and Subaru both offer an array of accessories for pets. Subaru has built whole advertising campaigns around the idea that its vehicles are dog friendly.

克莱斯勒Pacifica推出了一系列宠物配件,非常适合像人类一样喜欢宽敞且实用的厢式旅行车的狗狗们。The Chrysler Pacifica also has a wide range of dog accessories, for canines who, like their humans, appreciate the room and practicality of a good minivan.

日产于2017年纽约国际车展上公布 Rogue Dogue概念车型,它是一款针对宠物狗的定制SUV,提供内置的水和食物餐具、方便宠物上下车的坡道,定制的宠物吊床,甚至还有一个狗狗淋浴用的360度圆形框架和10加仑水箱。Nissan got lots of attention with the "Rogue Dogue," a one-off SUV it made for the New York auto show. It featured built-in water and food dishes, a ramp to the cargo area, custom dog bed and even a 360-degree "hoop and hose" dog shower with a 10-gallon water tank.

还有的车看起来小但是并不是说大狗就需要大车,比如本田飞度。

2017 款本田飞度

你会发现,特别大的狗也可以轻松地进出本田飞度,这是因为虽然它是紧凑型汽车,但是底盘较低,且车门和车窗都非常宽敞。You’d be surprised how large a dog can get in and out of a Honda Fit, because of the subcompact’s low ride height and wide-opening doors and hatch.

此外,这几款车型都在设计时将狗狗的安全考虑进去。

这些车型都为狗狗们在车内自由地躺下或活动提供了空间。但车主需要将宠物狗所在的货物舱与前面乘客舱用网或者铁格子分开,这样在发生意外事故时,狗狗就不会撞在挡风玻璃上。另外也要注意不要将狗狗被放置在乘客舱,避免狗狗分散驾驶员的注意力,或者在车辆发生碰撞时被甩到车外。All those vehicles provide space for a dog to lie down and shift around in the cargo compartment. Nets or grilles to separate the rear from the passenger compartment are important to keep dogs from flying into the windshield in the event of an accident. Restraints for dogs that ride in the passenger compartment are also important so dogs don’t distract the driver or get thrown out of the vehicle in a crash.

另外,与狗狗同出游还需要注意以下几点:

1、为狗狗佩戴好脖套和身份信息卡,以防发生事故或者你在休息时狗狗走丢。为狗狗植入微型电子芯片是防止狗狗走丢的最好的办法。

All dogs should wear a collar and ID tag in the event of an accident, or if they get away from you at a rest stop. Microchips are a permanent form of ID that cannot be lost.

2、保证车内的温度较低而且舒适。狗不会出汗,所以保持空气凉爽是非常必要的。

Keep the temperature inside the car cool and comfortable. Dogs can’t perspire, so cool fresh air is essential.

3、如果要在外过夜,上网确认信息,选择宠物友好型酒店。

Plan ahead for overnight trips by checking hotel and motel websites for pet-friendly accommodations.

4、永远不要把宠物单独留在车里。

Never leave your pet in the car unattended!

最后,如果你能做好准备工作,狗狗将是你出游的最佳伙伴。

A dog can be great company on a road trip, but only if humans do their part.

另外,提到Gear一词,有许多汽车爱好者会想到一档由英国广播公司(BBC)制作的王牌汽车节目——《Top Gear》,如果有时间看一下三位风趣幽默的主持人对各种经典车型的独到见解,你对这个词的印象将会更加深刻。(文 李芳)
