    90% of ALL accidents happen within 25 miles of home!
    Having stated that fact, Gracie is loose in the back with the seat bottom folded down so she isnt sitting up high. We need to get her a harness strap or sumptin'.

    We have harnesses for our two also. We started off with the one in the picture...but as Vegas grew, the harness started to slip off his shoulders. So, we started using the Easy Riders from Petsmart. They must a hot item...when my Yukon was broken into last Feb, they stole both Vegas and Orion's seat belts. Vegas has the Large and O uses a medium. They fit well and are adjustable. Vegas is awesome when seatbelted. He just sits and chills. Orion will sometimes be a good girl, other times she gets herself wound up and tied up in the seatbelt. If we are going on a longer trip, we will put O in a crate. She likes to mess with Vegas and it's just easier to give her a stinky bear in her kennel and put a blanket over the kennel and listen to her snore.

    They basically have enough room to lay down and stretch out. The harness loops around the shoulder part of the belt...so about as much room as a person would when leaning forward. Orion is capable of standing and putting her paws on the armrest and putting her head out the window. They do have another type of harness device...works like a zip line.
    I don't go anywhere without them locked into place. It just takes one person to ruin your day by being careless...and it really could be life or death for your bulldog. It could happen as you're pulling out of your developement on the way to the grocery store..or on your way to the post office.

    @Libra926 ya i know we need to start doing it usually hes in my lap and i hold on to him... the only bad thing is when we go out of town the only place for lex to ride is in the middle in the front seat. wonder if it would latch to the lap belt in the middle? is there a way we can use the harness we have?

    Is it a standard walking harness? Actually, to correct my previous post...the harness fits like a walking harness and it has a loop off the back. This loop is what you thread the buckle and belt thru. They also have a wide piece that fit over/lays against the chest...in case of a sudden stop, it prevents injury of the chest area of the dog. The harness does work just as well with a lap belt. You simply thread it thru the same loop on the back of the harness. Oh heck.....Orion wants to make you a video.

    @Libra926 thank you and orion so much for doing that, that helped out alot!!! o and tell orion that she doesnt need to be sucking in for the videos such a girl.... hehe
    he has a regular walking harness that doesnt have that big loop where the seat belt goes through. you can kinda see it in the first pic i posted up top.. i'll have to see if i can make the reg harness work for just this trip and later on we can upgrade to a better one.

    again thank you so much!!! i think vegas thought you and orion where gonna go for a ride without him....

    @lexterwayne We don't have one of these special harnesses for our beagle Loki because she obnoxious in the car so most of the time she is kenneled. But for the few times I have strapped her in I put her in her regular harness, then use a spare collar to latch around where you clip the leash to on their back and you have yourself a loop to put the seat belt thru!

    We use a leash that attaches to her collar and the seatbelt, she can sit and lay.
