It was a tight fit, he rode mostly backwards whilst lying down, with his ass in the nose end. But we got everywhere. My current dog weighs a bit less (50 kg / 110 lbs) and we now ride together with an EZS Kompakt. He has ample room with the seat removed and I think most modern hacks would have enough room for your mastiff. With such a large dog I would advise to choose a hack with an easy entrance though (like a flip-up nose end or something like that).

Getting him used to the hack at an early age helps. Storm's first ride out when he was 12 weeks old:






The lady has moved to the back seat of the bike since then btw

I'll keep working with her once a week or more and we'll see how she does.
All the best!

My girl's about 80 pounds (37 kilos-ish) and she's a bit big for my Velorex. Keep in mind that the Velorex is a smaller sidecar. The way the windshield wrapped around made it difficult for her to sit. She had to be looking out the right side or looking out the left side pretty much and it was very difficult for her to turn around. I have removed the windshield and the grab-bar from in front of the seat and she's now able to move much more freely. I have also removed the bottom of the seat and replaced it with a plywood base on some 2X4 blocks. There's an eye-bolt in the bottom to harness her in since she's such a spaz. I left the rear of the seat in because she likes to lean back against it. She does the same thing in the car or truck.
These pictures were taken after we rode for about 15 minutes or so and she decided to lay down. If she's sitting up she's much taller.

I rigged up the doggy seat in my Motorvation today. Modified a standard dog harness and bolted an O ring to the seat, and made a clip for it. I got some Doggles and a hat from doggles.com. Wiley is a 14 month old Golden Retriever. Already weighs about 85 pounds. He's gonna be a big dog. Anyway, I thought he would go nuts, but he absolutely loved it. The faster the better, and didn't want to get out, wanted to go more and more. Good boy!

First time out with doggles

Finally laid my hands on a fiiting pair of Doggles. Of course I was first sent some M's after explicitely ordering L's, but finally it all got right. Yesterday was the day to try them on and to my surprise Storm took it like a man (that he isn't any more ). He accepted them immediately and was with his head over and next to the windscreen as usual. He probably realises it works out well for him. Well, I'm happy since having his head in the wind most of the time, it was expected to go wrong one day.

New to this forum but thought Id throw a photo up of me and my broken down search dog. We do back country and disaster work with FEMA but he has a broken rear foot at present (got stepped on by the horse) and so we decided to get our new bike out for a winter ride. What a blast! Ill see if I can stuff the cat in too for the next photo. That might be interesting...
