    i am going to look into a soft carrier at least then she can lie down and will probably get used to it quicker as she's used to been in the crate in the house.

    We use a seatbelt harness for Mary Alice.

    It doubles as her walking harness as well.

    The seatbelt goes through the back, we tighten the seatbelt once it's connected, so that she can either sit or lay down.

    The only problem, if I leave her in the car, she can escape in less than a minute!!!

    But, it's better than having her loose in the car.

    For longer trips, I make her use the hard crate but she hates it!

    Chester rides in the back seat in a seatbelt harness ALWAYS.

    Why you should always have your dog secured in the car: My Aunt lost her beloved little Pomeranian some years ago when she got into a very small fender-bender accident. She was at a stop sign when some idiot ran into the back of her car at a low speed. Her little dog was sitting un-restrained in the passenger seat and he was slammed into the windshield and died instantly from a broken neck. Horrible and definitely preventable.

    Mine all sit in their Lookout Carseat . They love it because they sit up high so they can see out of the window and they can also lie down and take a nap if they want to !

    I ordered a Lookout from Roxanne last week and can't wait for it to arrive!!!

    Lucky is too big nowadays for a normal carrier and loves riding and going places with me. I hope the Lookout is as great as I think it will be.

    We just hold Grace when she's in the car. We don't let her loose and we never drive alone with her.

    We use a soft sided crate for Molly & Max. (it does have a metal frame to support the sides) I bought a small rectangle pet bed from LL Bean and that fits perfectly in it. I seat belt the crate into the back seat so it won't fly around if we should get into a crash. They seem very comfy in the car with this arrangement.....many times when we get home, they don't want to get out! I used to put toys in it too for them...but not now. All they want to do is sleep when it's time to go in the car.
