We use this:
Amazon.com : Floppy Ears Design Waterproof Microfiber and Foam Safety Back Seat Expander, Tan, One Size : Pet Supplies
It creates a ton of extra room for the backseat. With two bulldogs, it works great. They can both stretch out and still have room.
The size works very well in our CUV, a Nissan Murano.
You can buy a barrier like this to keep the dog from coming in the front-there are several types. On foster and smith, amazon etc. @minibull Well the picture won't show up-but it is a nylon barrier,with elastic, and window for dog to see up front.
“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"
We are planning to take the boys to Myrtle Beach next summer and I plan on getting travel crates for them to travel in in the car. I think it would be safer and more comfortable for everyone. We will also need them for the rental house anyway. I hope all goes well. I hate leaving them home on family vacations. If I could figure out how to get them on the cruise planned for this summer, I swear I would bring them. What fun would that be???
My smooshy face boy!
Dudley goes on lots of "short" road trips, but we did drive from NJ to CT with him to visit some friends. He was fabulous in the car! Got out every once in awhile at rest stops and stretched, did a little walk, had some water. He was GREAT. He is good in the car - always seems really comfortable there, too.
Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them...

Yes, I sure have!! I live in Mississippi and my six month old EB named Bo drove all the way to north Oklahoma to visit family for the holidays!! He absolutely loves car rides and can't wait to hop in the passenger seat anytime I say "wanna go for a ride!" It was about a 12-13 hour drive!! He loved every minute of it!!
