Buddy, our wonderful Border Collie we rescued from the sandy desert of Odessa, TX, rides in the front seat of our F-250 PSD with his chin on my thigh. Took him years to decide going on trips with us could be a good thing, but now we can't leave without him.

He gives us such complete & unconditional love.

Like SilverGate's pets, because of safety reasons Ms. Lulu Sugarfoot rides in a crate on the back cab floor of the Titan. When the back seats are flipped up, there is plenty of room for a large crate. It can be secured to prevent it from rolling around the cab in the event of an accident.

I bet he does speak his mind! Our male Eclectus really enjoys riding and seeing what's going on. He, too, gives a running commentary. The Macaw is curious, but that's about it. I don't think I'd let the Macaw out of the cage in the vehicle - just too much chewing going on. Maybe when he gets through his teen years he will be calm enough to do that, he'll be 4 this summer.

On my last trip I left the Macaw and the Conor in the trailer with the cat; with their cages on the floor. On each leg of the trip that they road back there I had one stop to make sure the trailer was cool enough, and see how they were. Walking back to the trailer I could hear the Macaw playing with his toys, so I knew he wasn't stressed - when he is stressed everyone nearby hears his complaints. The Conor was covered, and content being that way.

Sounds like a blast!! You guys in Texas really do think big. Eddy would freak if I ever put him in a carrier. Maybe one of your birds could speak to him about safety.. Christopher

We bought a K-9 seat belt years ago for our first cocker and now use it for our current one. It keeps him from moving around very much, but that is the idea.

Our little Shih Tzu prefers to ride in her crate or on my lap, and our Chesapeake sits on the backseat. He doesn't move around at all. On longer hauls, we put a seatbelt harness on him. However, when driving around town, they are free to put their heads out the window and hang loose!

Where do your pets ride

My Chihuahuas have very different riding preferneces. Prince Little Bear gets car sick if he isn't riding in his pet carrier -- in the carrier he sleeps for the vast majority of the time we are on the road. Precious Princess, on the other hand, battles being in her carrier -- digging constantly, crying, howling, etc. She trained me by the time she was a year old that HER place was on the passenger seat with two blankets and the seat heater on "High" in the Suburban or "5" in the Volkswagen. The picture below is the look I get when I forget to turn on the heater or have put the top down on the convertible:



"I am cold, and you are going to suffer a Chihuahua assault if you don't turn on my seat heater!!"

I am planning to try to find a traveling harness for her, but she has managed to wiggle out of any type of collar that I have purchased for her -- she weighs less than 2 1/2 pounds.

I suspect that she will really be scolding me this summer on the way to Madison -- convertible with top down and no seat heaters!

Kevin

FWIW
Our first PWD ended up with an eye infection that the vet said was most likely caused by "dry eye" from wind surfing.

Now rides comfortably in his crate at all times.

Car Seat

Tia has her own car seat. It has an inflatable base for a cushy ride and storage for food, leash etc under the seat. It also has a strap that hooks to her collar to keeps her in the seat. The brand is "Outward Hound" she loves it, she is up high enough to see everything and feels safe too.

In the picture she is fast asleep in her seat while we are packing up to leave the Branson Fall Rally last Oct.
