We have a little sports car. Not sure how we're gonna squeeze #2 in there since Chaya takes up 2/3 of the backseat all by herself. I want a second car (Jeep Grand Cherokee) but we live in the city and only have 1 parking spot.

I have a Chevy Tracker- Looks like a small jeep chevy tracker - Bing Images

The yorkie travel in 2 booster sits. Cozy in the front in her's and harnessed in- Air bag turned off. Roxy and Lucy behind the passenger seat in their booster seat belted in.

Buddy gets harnessed/seltbelted in behind me.

I rarely take all 4 any distance with me most just 1.5 miles from mine to my parents house.


My next car will be a Ford Escape. Ford escape - Bing Images. The yorkies boosters would be on the back seat and Buddy would get a big comfy be and be belted in the cargo are is everyone was going Ford escape interior - Bing Images

The new car is years away though.

We have a Mazda CX9. It has plenty of room for dogs and kids, but it is one of those cars where little things are always breaking on it (like sensors and electrical components). It is 4 years old now, and at the time there weren't many AWD crossovers to choose from.

When I finally get rid of this, I am going to seriously look at the new Ford Explorers. I think Ford has done a great job lately.

Sedan....

Years ago my sister fit 2 goldens as well as her sister (me) in her little chevy cavelier. I certainly have no problems fitting 2 goldens - one in a crate, the other wearing a harness - in my boat sized Ford Taurus.

I have a MINI Countryman, and I love it. We can't do crates in there, but I think harnesses are probably safer anyway, and there's plenty of space with the back seats down.

A Ford Expedition...great for pulling my boat and plenty of room for Woody, crate and gear.

I love countryman - Are they good in the snow weather? I am always dreaming my next vehicle is countryman - but it is a bit expensive though? Any thoughts? I love it is not too big or too small and 4 doors - it is very trendy and sporty look

Funny you should ask! I just (New Years Eve) bought a Kia Sorento. So far it's great! The big dogs go in the cargo area, and I have the back seat clean and tidy for humans!

Buick Enclave. I love that it has a real electrical outlet in the back of the front center console - for dog fans, if we end up doing agility.
I fold the middle and back seats down. My husband and I made a platform out of plywood, with a hinged middle (to get it in and out of the SUV) and covered it with carpet on both sides. This keeps the dogs from getting stuck between seats.
