This limits their movement and protects them from flying debris. However, most people do not have room, for them, when they have big dogs. If you do not, then the harness system is a good second best (make sure that the harness is on correctly and not too loose).

I have a friend who's 5er jack knifed and flipped- on it's side- a few years ago (cause: trailer breaks failed). Her dogs were in it but were all in Veri-kennels. The dogs were banged up but otherwise okay.

Imagine if your dog, or any other living thing, had been in this trailer- loose. They would be seriously injured or dead.

Her dogs were in the Veri-kennels and were fine, if shaken up.

I hope that anyone, reading this thread, who allows their pets to ride loose in a TT or 5er will reconsider after seeing these photo's.

My personal preferance- when I had my TT- was that my dogs were crated, with me, in the tow vehicle.

Thanks for posting the pictures. This this one a good case for 'a picture is worth a thousand words'! Your post was a real eye opener.

Would you ride in the trailer while being pulled? If no then you already have your answer.

I will agree with you only if the kennel is secured to the vehicle somehow.

Suppose you are in a crash, and the unsecured Veri Kennel with your pet in it flies forward and kills you. Your pet may survive due to your diligence, but you won't care.

My point was to the safety of the PEOPLE in the vehicle primarily, and secondarily to the safety of the pets. If the pet is in the vehicle with you, it must be secured to the vehicle or in confinement that is secured to the vehicle. Otherwise YOU are safer with the pet riding in the TT.

And you secure every single thing in your vehicle-- in case of an accident? A can of peas can kill you, if you are in an accident and it's not secured.

Yes, of course my kennels are secured but luckily I think of the safety of my dogs and do not put them in a trailer-- no more than I would put a person there. There is a reason that there is a law that people can not ride in trailers or 5ers and I do not think their safety is less, of a concern, because they have four feet and not two.

The real reason Nothing alive Should ride in the trailer because it fills up with Exhaust you pull over everything is dead. It's happened many times.

Our little guy is always with us up front in the cab. Heck I'd let em drive if he wasn't so near sighted. Just kidding.

Our pup rides in her crate securely fastened in the folded down back seat area. Occasionally and only on a wide open road she will sit on my wife's lap for a short while - but she actually "asks" to return to the crate and her soft bed. Many years ago (1981) on a cross country trip we took a couple of cats and they rode in the 5er. I even spent a day there as well, being so sick with food poisoning that I couldn't drive/ride in the truck. I can assure you, never again for more then one reason, including legality and safety but it was a case of needing to do another 4-500 miles or else. It was a completely uncomfortable jouncing, vibrating ride, to never be repeated

Piddles the Miniature Schnauser/Yorkie always rides in the Excursion. Usually sits right between our two daughters.

Does he have a license? If so, what's the problem?
