They have their harnesses on with their leashes attached. The leashes hooked into the seat belts on the couch.

This has me thinking...

We just purchased a 2000 Sea View by National RV, and have a Doberman, Berlyn, and have been wondering how to make it safe for her to travel with us......I wonder if there is any way other than having her in a crate to make sure she is safe and secure....was wondering about those car type of harness that attach to the seat belts???? Has anyone tried one of those and how were the results?? Thanks in advance for any tips and help on this issue....

crated under the dinning room table wedged up against the chair. No issues after 45 K miles.

Rough roads

Our dog was very restless on rough roads. Finally we allowed her on the couch. They feel the vibrations on the floor. She's out of the way too.

Lots of good ideas!
I especially like the one with using their harness attached to seat belt.
My dilemma; What IF, the coach you want to buy has no other seat belts, other than the ones used for driver and passenger.
I'm looking at the Allegro gasser right now (hopefully to order one before spring); don't seem to be any additional seat belts.
Anyone ever install any other sort of tie down near the couch?
I don't want to crate ours.
She'd go nuts if she can't see out the window.

Our two standard poodles (60#ea.) lay between the driver and passenger seats. They have the freedom of going to their food and water bowl when they want. The oldest is almost 8 and the youngest is looking at 7 and both have been RV'ing since they were 8 weeks old. They are both well behaved and enjoy traveling. Now I do stay within the speed limit and keep my distance from traffic in front of us. I've had a lot of RV's pass us doing well over the speed limit with their little dogs in the dash, now that's asking for trouble.

i travel with a white german shepherd and a great perimese i make the dining table into a bed then i use the seat belts to tie them. i learned when pulling in to a rv park the white runs out the door, not a good sign for the rv park workers.

The dealer didn't show me or didn't know it, but when I was showing off my Sea Breeze, a friend pointed out that there were three sets of seat belts under the couch.

Both of our dogs are in a harness and attached to one of the seat belts while in motion. If we want to give them a little freedom we attach a leash to the seat belt but keep it somewhat short.

Both of our sofas have seat belts. Both were underneath on the floor when we bought it. If there really are none I would run a leash around the frame of the sofa and back through the handle then attach it to the harness.

Imagine in a front end collision your pet being a projectile toward the big front window. Then if he/she did survive the chance of him running off.

Sometimes Sadie(Minpin) sits in the Sun in the passenger seat. I have to un-buckle, yank her off the seat and tell her to get up on the couch.

She also knows "Dunes", "Bye-Bye" and a lot of other words. Oh great, now she's watching me type it and getting all hyper.
