Bandit lays between the seats or on the floor in front of Kate. He sleeps a lot with a sporatic outburst of odor that nobody enjoys, he just lifts his head when being accused as to say. who me?

Shelties are supposed to be so smart; ours isn't. Tried the doggie seatbelt attachment thingie; he kept circling around until it wrapped him up so tight I almost couldn't release him. In the A he was so nervous he'd run from back to front, then get the diarhea and go on the carpet. Only alternative was to cage him. Now with the FW, he's only nervous while riding in the back seat of the truck, but at least he doesn't poop!

Off topic: after 12yrs we know he'll never get any smarter. And now he's got bladder cancer and is on chemo, and we treat him like a king and want to make his last year(s) as comfortable as possible and enjoy his company. No more pets for us; it's just to hard to let go.

Chokes me up to think of when Sadie gets old and I have to put here down.

I'm sure you get some funny looks at truck stops, we do as Zeus likes to drive also. Truckers always chuckle when they see him in the drivers seat looking around.

On the dash, she also rides on the gas tank of my ATV(over 6000 miles without a mishap)-better not to tether her than to have her pinned under the ATV(or RV) or me on top of her.

Since 1976 our dogs have always ridden where they wanted. When our two girls were young they usually sat in the rear dinette and colored or read books and magazines and the dog usually was near by. As they grew and eventually left the dog was usually close or on the lap of my DW and still usually is. No cage or leash while traveling for us. I am sure that the safety Nazi's will jump on me about this.

Sam sleeps on the couch directly behind me and occasionally will sit up and put his head on my shoulder for a scratch and a good word or two.

Sadie tries to sleep on the passenger seat until she realizes the sun doesn't shine on the couch.

I took out the table on the dinet, and Callie, our Doberman's crate fits in between the seats, very snuggly. She has been raised as a pup in a crate, she feels safe and secure there. I put velcro on the crate and the tabletop so it's not completely useless. Tigger, has a car-sick problem, but the Vet gave us some pills that help tremendouly. He rides in his crate until noon, then is let out to roam, he has problems the first day and half of the next then seems to enjoy the ride after that.

We use very large dog pillows/beds. They just sit or lay down and relax on the beds. Never been an issue for a problem.

When actually driving, Maggie (my older dog) sits in the passenger chair and keeps an eye on me and the passing scenery. Chase (my young dog) doesn't challenge Maggie's right as alpha to the seat and rides in a dog bed in the front passenger foot area with the stairwell closed off. He can see out the windshield if he sits up and he is usually doing that and watching me. Now and then they will take a walk back into the MH to get a drink of water or something, but when we are moving they are up front 99% of the time.

They find urban areas boring and usually sleep through those (wish I could). Any animals or birds out in the country get their immediate attention.

Once we've arrived at a destination, they (and I) live in the MH pretty much as we do at home - namely, they have the run of the place, but are never far from where I am. They are usually pretty tired because we have either been hunting all day or out walking in wilderness places.

Mostly, though, we are outside:

At home, Sadie isn't allowed out, but at the dunes, I kick her out in the morning, but watch where she "goes". She rides where she wants when I'm traveling.

Ya know those plastic bags in the produce section? Well, a half roll of one just fell into my cart and somehow made it out to my truck. They work great for picking up after Sadie.

We found this worked so much better than the duct tape method others had suggested since it doesn't remove any hair from the dog when we let him lose again at the campground.

BTW - in reality he usually just rides on the couch, bed, chair or his favorite spot, my DW's lap.

Okay - this post made my whole day!
