    I would try a travel dog cage and put them in it and secure that between the dinnette seats with the table stowed away, that way they are secure and cant hurt themselves

    security

    Our dog screamed and scratched to get out off his cage so we binned it (Cats and Dogs home) We bought a strap on Amazon (£1.75) which clicks into the seat belt release mechanism. Bought an extra mech and screwed it to the floor so that he can lie between our seats Works OK as he is secured in case of an accident!:Eeek:

    We have two dogs, one big and one small. We bought two travelling harnesses with attachments and clips that go on the seat belts. The little one travels between the front seats attached to the passenger seat belt clip and the big one in the back attached to the rear set belt. Our mini poodle, who is a nervous traveller is well settled between the seats and we can give him a soothing pat quite easily.
    What makes us laugh is that they are like kids. The big one leaps into the motorhome and makes for the space between the front seats every time and sits down as if to say 'my turn in the front'. :Laughing:
    If we had room for a crate we would use it as the majority of dogs feel safe in a small confined space but not possible in our MH... not enough floor space.

    We use a cage and our dog is fine with it but it's a case of what works with you dog, you may be able to borrow a cage and see if it works before buying one.

    hi sue
    welcome to fun. glad you found it.

    sorry about the dog problem, but if you perserve it should be fine, maybe try the cage, you could also try and sit in the back with them the first few times to reassure them.

    pat and Neil

    Hi our (manic cocker spaniel ) travels in her bed between the driver and passenger seat , we found if she was on the seat in the back ,being some what higher up and thought if she could where she was going might help ,but found this made her a bit quezzy due to slight roll of van , we since found that she's better on the floor area.

    Hi Sue and welcome to the Fun! :welcome:

    Nix (Border Collie) used to travel in a crate which was fine and secure but very bulky. Now she's older (just turned 1 year), she travels in a Clix CarSafe harness which fastens directly into a seatbelt socket. However she does not travel on a seat (not allowed on the furniture!) so sits or lies on her VetBed pad on the floor adjacent to the passenger seat in the lounge area. Find this works very well. :Smile:
