    Default car booster seat

    Today i got Zack a car booster seat. It's called the Outward Hound Pet Lookout Car Booster Seat. I got it because he's not big enough to see out. Also, it keeps him safer, the company claims, because there's a strap with a clip on it that clips to the loop on the back of his harness (Four Paws http://www.pet-dog-cat-supply-store....166c5d3ea435c2) attaching him to the passenger seat of the car via the booster seat. This is the one i got, same color (black) http://www.petco.com/Shop/Product.as...amilyID=12262& . Here's a red one: http://store.yahoo.com/pet-guys/-700603006230.html

    There is also one with an inflatable bottom which was not available at the store i went to (PetSmart), here it is: http://www.petsmart.com/global/produ...N=2032887&Ne=2
    The one i got cost about $20.

    I really like it, it works. It's for dogs up to 20 pounds. zack is 9 pounds He can curl up in it and sleep if he wants with room to spare, and he can lean toward the window and smell the breeze and look at all the people and dogs and other exciting things on the streets when we drive if he wants. Before i got this, he didn't enjoy driving. Now, on the ride home, he was enjoying it so much, i went for a little pleasure drive by the beach so he could be entertained.

    I had one of these for Jake but he outgrew it. He loved it. I liked that he could look out the window if he wanted or curl up and snooze. The drawer in the bottom came in handy too. Unforuntately at 19 and 21 lbs neither of mine will fit anymore But now that they are a big girl and boy they do great sitting on the back seat in their seat belts.

    Rupert and TedBear saying they are going on crash diets 'cos they want one of these too and they're too big

    What a great idea...we currently have a crate sitting on top of the seats so they can see out of the window if they want too

    Did try the seatbelts, but theyboth twirl round and get tangled up in knots. The crate is great 'cos they can get up and move around, also I can leave a bowl attached with a small amount of water in it, so they always have access to a drink.

    When we were away, we did about 900 miles over the week, so they do quite a lot of travelling and I like them to be comfortable. We stop about every 1 1/2 to 2 hours for a "comfort break".

    TedBear used to be car sick, but we've cured that by giving him 1/4 of a ginger biscuit before we go out - lasts all day and he's never been sick since !!

    Cedar has a booster seat too! She loves it! Cedar's a little different, though. It rests on the seat instead of strapping over the back. It is attached to the seatbelt, and then there's the hook that attaches to Cedar's harness.

    This particular model also serves as a travel bed (it folds out) and a doggie suitcase!

    here's a pic of Cedar catching a snooze in her carseat.

    Wow where did you get that one?

    I like all those booster seats. As long as you can still clip the seatbelt harness thorugh it amd thru the dog seatbelt, I'd be happy to get one -- Jaspar LOVES looking out the window.

    I got Cedar's seat from Home Depot. It is a Flexi-Mat Pet Stow Away Car Seat &Travel Bed. They had the same thing at a number of online and catalog order dog boutiques and specialty stores, but they were sometimes double the price of Home Depot.

    I see the Home Depot price has gone up slightly since I bought Cedar's seat, but you can at least get the information if you're interested. Just go to www.homedepot.com and type in "dog seat" in the search box.

    That's very neat. How does it attach to the seat? It looks like the seat belt just goes around the middle of the thing, between those two sections.
    It would be a lot easier to attach and unattach than the one i got, it works the way i think. A plus of the one i got is that it folds up completely flat, but i need something that's easy to remove and reinstall.
