Whatcha. Being a responsible person who is forced into having a dog(cats rule!) I have got our working cocker cross a cage for the car. It's 2 feet wide and tall and 3 feet long, or most of the back of the car. It is great for him as he can just about sprawl out side to side nevermind long ways. It also means that on days out stuff can be packed around and on top and he is still comfortable. However I have to take it out every time I don't have him in as the cage is huge and numb and awkward and a pain in the wrist. I'm therefore looking for a quick fix for nipping off to the woods that isn't a cage and that is still considered as appropriate restraint and that doesn't need a rear seatbelt clip as i don't have any being a van. Help please!

Might be onto a winner. Found some lashing rings allegedly rated at 400 kg each that will fit the bolts from the top seatbelt mounts, 8 for £13.50. Also found a dog seatbelt that has a pair of hooks rather than a seatbelt buckle, similar money. Will post a few pictures once installed.

With a bigger dog I would be looking at some kind of fixed division between the front and back of the cabin. Our dog is 14kg and the big cage is about the largest I could find that would fit in the back of the car and even then it affects the passenger seat position which is ok if you're short. That said you probably could get a German Shepherd in the cage but I wouldn't want to go very far or for a long distance as it wouldn't be comfortable with such a big dog. Once i get this belt system in I'll get some pictures as it may be a cheap way to maintain the versatility of the car.

This is fine for two Cockers, or Springers.

File Attachment:


It has a door on front and side, so it can be turned if more room is needed.

File Attachment:


Most of the Shoots that I go to are only twenty miles or so, but some are two to four hours drive. The dogs settle down quickly - especially on the way home.

I have a Lintran box, that is excellent, but it does not leave any spare room in the Jimny.

I wanted to get one that size as it's more manageable but I got my head bitten off because the precious little creature has to have as much comfort as the most comfortable thing on world comfort day!

Far safer for dog, and humans, if the dog is restricted in its ability to go flying around inside the vehicle, IMO.

Dogs do not gallop around in the normal course of their day. They are content to lie down, and doze the hours away.
