Dog missing her window view - where does your pup ride?
 
3 Attachment(s)
I know there are tons of RVing doggies out there so I'm hoping for some ideas. Our 11yr old 22lb min schnauzer LOVES looking out the window on car rides, but I have not found a good place for her in our 2016 Axis 25.2. She likes to be close to us, so she will not ride on the couch in back by herself. Occasionally she will brave the dash on a smooth road, but I think she's too old to really take to this. Of course, she takes over the co-pilot seat when DH is napping on the couch.

For now, we have her dog bed on the floor between the driver/passenger seat but she can't see out the window from there. We really needed an elevated bed, one that she can get in/out on her own, and that we can stow when not in use. I have not found a good solution. I tried this 15"x15"x15" pet ottoman from amazon, but it was too small for her to lay on top and to tipsy (more for a cat or small pup).

There's a little bit of room between the window and seats, too, that might work for something homemade. I think there's more room between the driver seat and window and I'd be willing to cover up the mirror controls, cup holder, etc.

Any ideas how to get this pup her window view??

:ermm: What a cutie! :thumb:

Our TinkerBell has a car seat that is somewhat elevated, when attached to a seat. It's got a strap that goes up and behind the headrest, and another one that goes around the seatback. You set the height with the headrest strap.
The Missus sits in back, and lets Tink handle the Co-Pilot's chores! :D

The things we go thru for our babies!!!

I agree... The Missus has already told me that if there's only one parachute available: she and Tink have dibs on it! :lol:

SuperD 09-21-2017 09:20 PM

Certainly hope your coach doesn't have wings!

Bob Denman 09-21-2017 09:22 PM

:D That's for those "off-chances", when we might be in an airplance...
Or if I take a REALLY wrong turn on a mountain road! :eek:

Ain't that the truth!! Heck, one of the reasons we got the RV in the first place was so the pup could easily travel with us! :rolleyes:

Thanks, Bob! And I hope you don't ever need to that parachute!!

Our pup rides on my wife's lap while underway. She dozes, will watch traffic for awhile, and generally just enjoys watching the world pass by. And yes one of the reasons we travel by motor home, is so Samantha can travel with us, instead of being left in a cage at some kennel.

Ours rides on the dash mostly... In the fold out desk area - if not in DW's lap...
Of course she is 5 pounds max - a teacup Yorkie.

Hurricane also has the 'doggie window' - at floor level next to co-pilots seat...

Our Australian Shepherd enjoys the lower bunk while traveling and one of the captains chairs when parked!

:nonono: I REALLY heate to bring this up... :ermm:

How many of you folks actually take the time to make sure that your pets (furry family members...) are safely secured?
I'm an Independent Insurance Agent, and I see accident reports almost every day.
Have you ever considered what might happen in an accident to your pet? :eek:

pu-LEEZE take the time to make sure that they are safe!

(off my soapbox...)

Why not just install a small rv window?

That's right. Us to. :D
However, the unit we bought has a doggie window at the feet of the co-pilot.

The wife and the dog take turns.
If the wife is up front, the dog is on the floor between us, but the wife likes riding on the couch a lot so Kenai get the copilots seat.
