I got to see if his crate fits in the back... If not, I'm gonna have to buy a 2nd, smaller crate for the car for him...

Have you considered a seatbelt arrangement instead? For years I had a car that was too small for a crate that would fit JennyB & Bandit, so I got seatbelts for them - harnesses from here (you will have to wait until he is full grown though, they are custom made and not very adjustable) and the seatbelt attachment from here. There are many other types and styles available also. I applaud you for concerning yourself with making sure the little fellow is properly restrained in the car!

Well, his crate fits in the back seat, with the seats down. I just need to prop up the backside of the crate (in sideways) with a blanket to make it level.

Getting a 2nd crate would make life a little bit more easier. I wouldn't need to keep moving his one crate around. The harness would make things easier in the car, but I don't think it's as safe as a crate.

Yep, crates are definitely the safest, but whe you have multiple dogs and a small car, sometimes the seatbelts are the next best thing to do.

Just remember - he should ALWAYS be in the back in his crate. I have a friend who was in a wreck with her little dachshund in a Vari-Kennel in the front seat - and thank goodness the little guy was sleeping in a little blanket - the air bag smashed the Vari-Kennel into 17 pieces. And Vari-Kennel is a good, tough brand of crate.

I got another Vari-Kennel from my father. He has loads. I just need to give it a good cleaning. I also need to pick up some cargo straps to somehow strap it in place on the back seats when they're down.

I always put the crate in the back. It was a bit scarey in my old SUV. It was IN THE back. If I would of gotten rammed from behind, I don' twant to think of lil Winston back there. And this new car has a sensor that turns off the passanger airbag if the pressue is less than 60 lbs (small child or dwarf)...

I have the one with voice recognition! :)

way to use your turn signal, though! :)

Yes, mine has the voice recognition/navigation system. It's sweet! It's so sweet ChainedLightning got one too, but he got the 2-door in black. I did want the dark grey (called Galaxy Grey), but the dealer didn't have any with the nav system. And CL convinced me I needed it before hand! They only had a blue & black 4-door sedan with the nav system on the lot. The Galaxy Grey one with the nav in the 4-door sedan is very rare in our 4 state area and would of been hard to get one. So, I liked the blue (Atomic Blue Metallic) better than the black.

I was waiting to turn at the time I took the picture, of course...

"got one too"
"got one first" is more accurate :)

Well, yeah, I was still at work when you went.

We used a dog harness for Leo the Staffordshire Bull Terrier and he was fine with it.

But a crate is safer.
