The full size crate (something like 36 long, 28 tall and 24″ wide) will not fit in the back seat OR the hatch of the Subaru. If it were ROUNDED it might fit in the very back, but the opening would be on the end that is not accessible with the create in side-ways.
I’ve seen the harnesses that are like seatbelts for dogs, but give them access to the upholstery, seatbelts and other delicious items. Gandy is getting better about not chewing off-limits kinds of things, but still, why put such temptation in her way?
She is quite happy in the crate we’ve been using in the car all along, but she has also barely fitting, and growing so fast, I fear I might leave her in it at the beginning of a meeting in town and come back two hours later and find she has grown so much that I have to call the fire department to use the Jaws of Life to extricate her from her ship-in-a-bottle pen.
I can’t find many options in theÂ Christiansburg-Blacksburg area. The Tractor store now inÂ Christiansburg is very low in inventory of everything (we suspect they will close shop entirely soon) and Target, Lowes, Home Depot and K-mart don’t show me much in our future dog’s size .
