Great Question

We agonized over this question, looked at harnesses and even pondered custom-tailoring one for the dog. After all, every dog harness I've ever seen only restrains the upper body and is useless for preventing injuries in an accident.

So, then we asked her.

She was pretty reasonable, I have to admit. "Not all of us are created equal," she began. "Sure, lots of my peers really do need to be restrained, crated, or even locked in the closet. But, look at me: I move slowly, hate to be more than two feet from either of you. I won't live past fifteen, and riding in the motorhome is my passion. Why not indulge me?"

It was a compelling argument, so we agreed to give it a try. When there is something worth watching, she slumps against the instrument console and watches the road. Most of the time, she shrugs and says goodbye, adjourning to one of the sofas.

Not a practice I'd recommend for 80% of the canines I know. But, for a sedentary 17 lb; wooly mammoth who is more dependable than most teenagers, I'd say letting her sit loose up front with us lies inside the realm of reason.

When we take our Golden retriever with us, he stays under the kitchen table.

Our 45 pound hound sleeps on the couch until we stop. The cat is either under the couch or on the dash, and sometimes in the drivers lap. Refuses to sit in the passengers lap. I think they can be injured in a crash no matter how they travel.

I saw this question and thought I'd add what we do. We have a Snoozer Lookout car seat for our dog. She loves her seat. It put her high enough to look outside when she wants. We also use it in the car and truck. Of course it depends on how big your dog is. Our dog is small. She is really happy in it. We bought the large one that is made for two dogs. That way she can stretch out if she wants. It hooks up to your seat belt. Cover is removable and washable.

Sadie gets bored after about 30 seconds of looking outside, then lays down to sleep.

My Sadie will only relax in one place usually...in the pilots lap.
