B's in cars

O,k so we are waiting for our 2nd B and in the meantime are wondering how are we going to travel with 2 b's?..Right now we hold Champ up front with us (I know not safe) but he wiggles out of the car seat and our car is a compact car with no room for a crate so now what….can't hold 2 B's in the car. Any thought? How about one of those travel bags anyone try this....oh I can hear the screaming and crying now...lol

Hhhmmmm. I have seen at the pet store dog seat buckles. You can put them in the back seat. It comes with a harness and atttaches to the seatbealt.
Here is a link for a better idea 🙂

thanks….that looks promising

That is what we have for Athena. It works pretty well. Sometimes she gets extra wiggly and can twist it, so you have to check on them.

You can also get a regular harness and petsmart sell leash type straps that have clip to hook to the harness and then a part to clip into the seatbelt part

great..will look for any of these. Impossible it's all Champ resistant

I wish I could say it will be but knowing Basenji's….uuummmm no. They ALWAYS find a way to destroy something :o

yeap, but i'm trying to be posititve…lol

Go for the seatbelt. I have two, and they work great.

What about the gate things they have to put across the backseat so they can't get into the front?

Did you get approved from BRAT for another dog. I know you were waiting to hear from them.
I use seat belts for both of mine. They work really well, except for the one Wyatt chewed through:rolleyes:

Well I'm happy happy happy to say that I have a scheduled home visit for next wed. so I'm very excited about that. Still no B's around my area but hopefully this will speed up the process and maybe even get them to transport.
As for the seatbelt…well like I said Champ wiggled out of it but I'm definetly going to look into the one that straps to the halter and car seat, can't see how he can come out of that.

We crate our dogs for long trips. No extra seats for them

We crate them on all trips, long and short.:)

wish we had the room that seems to be the safest.

The seat belt type would be the next best bet. We used to let them run all over the car…...no more.

no good either since he's wiggled out but I'm going to try the one that attaches to the harness….it has to be better than me holding him in the front seat

Without question. Someone on this forum had one poop in her consol while it was loose in her car when she left the vehicle for a short time.:D Went in places she couldn't clean.:D One of the funnest things I've read on the forum, but it illustrates a point rather well.:D

Our has the tendancy to want to climb in your lap while driving then sit up and stick his butt in your face. Or Female used to have the nervious dripper effect- drooling & spit bubbles coming out of her mouth.

The other great reason or a crate is you can attach a crate fan if you do ever have to nleave them alone for a very short time.

I have seen dogs get heat stroke at dog shows.

yeap I read that one. Actually this weekend I thought we were going to have the similar situation. I literally had a bag strapped to his behind and holding a cup in case he needed to pee….coming back from a long trip and stuck in traffic.
