I've been looking at this as an alternative method for transporting the dogs, having had a scare reading on another forum about dogs being trapped in their cage in the boot following an accident


But I think the safest way of transporting still remains a proper car harness attached to the seat belt, such as these


or the RAC one


However that's not always possible for those of us with multiple dogs.

The varikennels are really good {any plastic solid sided crate}

and the Atlas range http://www.dogswithstyle.com/puppy-d.../prod_220.html {but most suitable for the boot}

My concern with having the dogs in the boot is if the car is hit from the rear

We've got one of these at present


it does have the rear escape doors and we leave the back seats folded down so we can get them out quickly if necessary.

{and is also very useful for stacking up shopping or luggage when the dogs aren't in the car!}
