No affiliation, but with all the new pooches riding, I figured I'd throw this tidbit out there.
I've tried different types of foam in my Hannigan rig, but on the dirt roads and winter damaged pavement here in Vermont Barley was shaken up like a ball in a paint can. I discovered a memory foam dog bed at Orvis.com ($75 since it was a return with another dog's name on it) and it made a HUGE difference! Before, he was comfy...but not quite enough to sleep. Now, he stretches out and naps on those 14 hour days on the road.
I got a sidecar to travel with my dog. He never complains, is delighted to be with me, approves of my dietary choices, is a social butterfly who helps me meet folks, appreciates a good beer, snuggles better than my wife, and hangs on my every word as if it's the most profound thing he's ever heard.
