We've had to downsize from a Ford Galaxy to a Vauxhall Corsa - as I'm sure many people have to these days to save money.
Previously, the dogs (Springer and Sprocker) have travelled in a Lintrans crate. They love it, and so do we. We've decided to keep the crate, and put the seats down in the car when we don't have the kids with us so the dogs are safe.
But, we've been looking at other ideas - looked at a Barjo tailgate - perfect, but too expensive for our meagre budget as it has to be custom made for that size car.
Even though the dogs are well trained, the idea of opening the boot and them being unsecured scares me.
I guess we need a dog guard and some form of harness? But can we get any that work if the back seatbelts are being used?
Any advice gratefully received.
