Pets Travelling First Class With The Help of Southco

Pets Travelling First Class With The Help of Southco

With its initial product designed, engineered and patent applied, the start-up company, Dog&Drive GmbH, officially became established in 2021. Dog&Drive is a high-end manufacturer of folding-stairs for car boots, based just outside of Cologne, Germany. After numerous occasions whereby Dog&Drive founder, Karl-Heinz Kamlage, watched animals struggling to haul themselves in and out of vehicles at his wife’s veterinary clinic, he and his team of engineers decided that there had to be a smart solution to this problem. Thus became, Dog&Drive’s unique, hand-crafted boarding application. 

Easy to install and adapted to aid seamless integration within some of the world’s top vehicle manufacturer’s car boots, Dog&Drive perfected their design with the help of Southco, a world-leading designer and manufacturer of access hardware solutions, and are now taking the market by storm with their bespoke, sleek stair with integrated dog bed solution.

Working as a team, Dog&Drive with Southco’s help have created a market-leading folding-stair application to aid in the transportation of animals – ensuring the ease and comfort of both the animals and their owners remain at the forefront of its ethos.
