RidingDonkeys -- Looks like an elegant solution.

I'm really torn on this one, and I think in the end all of us are making educated guesses on what is best for our dogs. I remember a relatively minor accident several years ago in which the back hatch of a lady's SUV was sprung on impact and her four goldens bailed out in panic...right into Interstate traffic. All four were hit and killed.

That's my personal nightmare scenario, and personally I think if Barley survived an impact I'd rather he stayed with the wreck until I or a good samaritan could reach him.

He's also a hunting dog. Every time a rabbit or squirrel crosses the road in front of us he lunges, then turns to me with that imploring look, "Shoot it, Dad! SHOOT IT!"

I think he's safer the way I have him.
