It is doggy gadgets galore in the 4×4 which is even kitted out with a TV screen in the boot so dogs can as watch and hear their owner in the driving seat.

Ryan Gains, Chief Marketing Manager, X-Trail, said: “It’s clear from the research that for dog owners, dogs are a key part of the family.

“Ensuring their pet’s needs are catered for is often just as important as making sure the children are comfortable and happy.”

The idea of an X-Trail for dogs came after a survey carried out with Kennel Club members, revealed that 90% of them wanted a car with added dog friendly space.

Nissan say the new car’s main feature is a comfortable, leather-clad boot with enough space for two dogs and importantly can be easily-wiped-down.

Vet, Dr. Rachel Homeny, said: “In particular, the wash and dry functionality allows dogs to be dogs, so owners don’t need to worry about messing up the car interior.

“This is a great concept that caters to the needs of man’s best friend.”

Far from a set of wheels to take a family from A to B, Nissan has tried to eliminate all pains of driving dogs about by using the very latest technology.

Top gadgets include a two way dog camera and audio link displayed on screens and speakers at both ends of the car to keep pets calm.

A no-spill water bowl and a smart dog treat dispenser which dogs can activate themselves by pressing a pad.

Under the boot space, is a pull out ramp in case the almighty jump is a leap to far for dogs and perhaps best of all is a 360 degree shower to wash them down after a mucky walk.

The shower comes with a blower attachment to dry them off using warm air supplied into the boot and all is neatly stowed under the boot space.

For comfort there is a luxury bed and for safety, a clip on harness.

Side compartments store leads, treats and waste bags and there is a Nissan dog guard behind the rear seats.
