    I have a small SUV type of vehicle. They ride unrestrained in the way back area. They are not allowed in the front at all.

    Driving to the woods to go for our walk I let them free in the back seat since we are just driving 5 minutes in our town. But any further on the highway I put them in their seatbelt harness

    Having a mini-van... he gets to sit in the back seat or likes to sit on the floor staring at Mommy... sort of begging to be up front with us

    We have a crate because usually all the seats are taken with 4 kids. Otherwise we use a seatbelt because you never know how someone else is driving, plus there are time I get distracted by what they are doing or the kids, so I know this way I can concentrate on the road!

    Stella rides in the back seat but loose. She likes to look for stuff under the seats. Lol I don't let her up front because she would try to help me drive.

    We put ours in a harness and hooked in to the car tie downs in the back, or in a crate in the back. Never in the front.

    Quella La Roux

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

    Quella sits in a booster seat in the front passenger seat next to me. The a/c in the rear of my Expedition isn't anywhere near worthy in Arizona, so until it cools down again, I plan on keeping her up front and directly in front of the a/c vents (which tickles her ears). I do plan on crating her in the rear cargo space on long distances. She'd be too much of a distraction and her job on those trips will be to get some sleep and give mommy some peace and quiet.

    She hasn't been in the Jeep just yet, due to the temperatures, but I'm assuming I'll allow her in her booster seat or harnessed to the front passenger seatbelt.

    We tried the booster seat and Jake was very nervous in it being raised and all. He used to get car sick just about every time he rode in the car and we found he does best with a little fresh air on his face. So he is free on the back seat of our suv and pops his head in and out of the window (windows have kid locks so its impossible for him to roll window all the way down)-photo-2-jpg

    I saw this picture out of the corner of my eye and thought hey, that's Jax! Jax gets car sick just about every time he is in the car as well. Now he will start trembling just knowing he is about to get in the car. If he has his head out the window like Jake, his trembling and drooling eventually stop. He still throws up occasionally though.
