How do you secure your dog? Post pics here.

Something occured to me as I started drawing up ideas to secure the schnauzer in my sidecar. We've loosely mentioned this in a few threads, but have never really tackled it before. Based on the Hacks n Pups thread, there are a lot people who want to ride with their pooch. So let's consolidate our resources!

How do you secure your pup? Post pictures of your setup so we can all see your ingenuity!

Hi, I have a tether about 18" long that I have clipped to a rod mounted on the inboard side of the sidecar so it can slide forward or backward...I ONLY use it when I leave the rig to go into a business like a restaurant and have to leave Dina in the hack...she is a bit skitzy and someone could scare her into running off and hiding.

My philosophy is the the LAST thing I would want in the event of a wreck is to have my dog attached to the rig as it wrecked....I want her to either be thrown out or be able to jump away...

That is prolly not a popular view but I stick by it. Dina is 8 yo and has ridden in the hack her entire life in three countries and in every state west of the Mississippi.

I use a chest harness with a leash from her back to the bike's luggage rack and another leash clipped to her collar and attached down inside the nose of the sidecar. I shorten them up so she just has room to stand or sit, but can't be thrown out. Doggles and adjust my driving to slow and smooth.

I am acutally tackling this task this weekend.

PetSmart (maybe Petco as well) and Fosters and Smith (online) sell a harness with an accompanying tether that attached to a LATCH anchor in a car. I intend of placing an anchor in the hack and then using the harness and tether as intended. Installation looks to be about an hour.

A harness with a clip on (heavy duty) strap that is fitted to the floor with bolt and washers.

It allows him to sit or lay down but not enough slack to jump out and also does not put pressure on his neck.

Because of Wim Brooklyn's size (110lbs), I take out the lower part of the seat and put a piece of foam backed carpet for his comfort.

The photo angle does not really show it well.

I put a loop in the floor just to one side of the seat. I clip the lead to this. At the other end it's attached to a full chest harness. This allows our pooch to move around and lie down as she wishes within the hack. It is short enough though to prevent her from getting out.

Here in the UK it's law to secure pets into the sidecar or to the bike if riding solo.

Hell, that doesn't surprise me in Europe. I once got told by a cop in Germany that my cargo (two racks of beer) was not properly secured in my back seat. Apparently I was supposed to strap it down.

Two in one!


547 by Rottvet, on Flickr

One little puppy secure in the "rumble seat/trunk" via harness and leash. The bigger puppy is secured the same but leash is attached to an eyebolt on the inside wall of the chair. Being German, I just told them it is just like a BMW, but no mention where it is made! Goggles are a must, and in our country, tinted like sunglasses.

I tell her to "Stay"... She will not get out until we have stopped and I tell her to.
