    Bear is loving his booster seat.
    I thought that it was rather overpriced for what is really is (a giant foam block covered in an elastic fabric) but he really does enjoy being able to look outside.

    Yes - we do the same. Always in a harness for my pup - you never know how someone else is driving or what might happen. I don't let my kids ride w/o a seat belt so I don't let Fitz ride w/o being strapped in either. I have been in car accidents in the past so I am extra careful!

    First of all, let me post my disclaimer - I use this set up when I am going about 2 miles to Starbucks, where we go through the drive-thru and say hi to the baristas.

    This is my set up. I drive an F-150 pickup. I can't figure out how to put seats in the back as I can't get behind the bench seat back. I couldn't find a double seat that I thought I would like on the internet anywhere either. So, I made one. I am considering finding some foam to use instead of the 2 pillows because they aren't quite firm enough. I used a standard hard plastic laundry basket, 2 pillows, 2 luggage straps and a fleece throw. The throw is wrapped around the pillows. I needed 2 luggage straps to make it work. I put them through the hand holds and around the front of the basket, then around the back of the seat. The puppies wear their harnesses, and they are each on a leash which is tied to the headrest uprights. The weight is not enough to turn the air bag on.

    I put Ollie's harness on him and then I have an attachment that hook's the harness to the seat belt. I use that for Ollie I'm now considering getting a booster seat box for both of them.... Do they make double ones?

    Bear rides in his medium booster seat. It's awesome. He can look out the window without scratching everything!

    I let my frenchie seat in the back, he is very good and looks out the window, however when we get to the park he does get excited and try,s to get in the front .

    Hudson & unnamed puppy!

    Re: Frenchie Poll: How Does Your Frenchie Ride in the Car?

    Hudson sits in the back, there's a seat protector thing that eliminates the crack between the front and back seats which he really likes. I think it makes him feel more secure. He has a car seat back there and a bed.
