The dogs love their truck!

The pups jump in the truck knowing we are going on an adventure. Mo will need to be picked up when we are done but..... A tired dog is a good dog!
a working dog is a happy dog

Thats cute! I had a friend that could never get their dog in the truck/car! Had to lift them up...so you are blessed to have such willing dogs!

I have already trained Tigger to load up...No way I can lift a 40 pound dog!

I'd hate to be you picking him up when he's done. I hope you're a big guy with a strong back. LOL. I'm glad they like it.

Good idea on training Tigger early on that!

Abby is the only pup that will jump in the Jeep. I have to pick Sugar and Jessie up myself, they are each 40 lbs Last week I had to take Jessie to the vet and my husband was working late so I had to take her myself. Try having to pick up a 40 lb. dog in to a Jeep with broken ribs.... twice!!!!

My Jake used to love going in the car/van - it didn't even need to be travelling anywhere! We took both the dogs to Devon last summer camping and text our friends pics of Toby playing in the sea and Jake sat in the back of the van!

im coming toooooooo

Our rescue dog Kez hated the car when we first had him,we think all his car experiances wern`t good ones, being trasported across country from rescue homes,now if the boots open he`s in there its just like he`s saying you aint going any where without me.
It only took about 5 trips in the car each journey going somewhere that the end result was fun for Kez i.e the woods,a ramble etc.The one trip out we had a right game getting him in the car, got to the commen had a run with loads of other dogs 1hour later time to go home & he just jumped in the back of the car ???? hows that work ???? don`t know but we havn`t looked back since.Kez even has a sniff at the car as we pass by on our walks,bless him

Sandy loves short drives in the back of my pick-up. We just let her in back and she don't jump out neither.

Most states have laws regarding loose dogs in the back of trucks. There are tethers you can buy for safety.



Zorasdad- You should buy or build a ramp for your big boy!
