Yeah if its too hot or too cold, the dog should stay home, but that's just my opinion. My boy would LOVE to go everywhere with me, but even riding in the car, especially a black car, isn't ideal in the heat and the cold windchill.

I also want to say not to strap a crate to the roof rack on your SUV and drive for 8 hours to Canada. Figured it could bare mentioning since the president elect did that a few years back... not good lol at least in a truck they have the wind semi blocked from cab of the truck.

That's why I am considering a camper shell. And yes I know they are ugly as some have said, lol. But they have multiple windows that can be open or closed. While providing shade from the heat, and a dry warm place from the rain and snow. I liked the idea of bolting down a crate as some have mentioned. I can always get a shell while having a large crate for him to go inside freely when he wants. He likes to lay down in the car since he isn't the greatest at balancing, and that's why it's hard to fit me, my sister and him on 3 seats. So I'm just trying to get some creative ideas. As my sister says he is my duckling and follows me everywhere, so it would be nice to give him the option to always tag along on errand runs and hiking trips. While he is safe and comfortable.

Like I found this someone made for there dog and people(notice the cup holders). It's not a bad idea. Although I wont put that fancy carpet in my truck, since my truck still needs to do truck work like hauling straw, hay and horse pellets. But I will still put in bedding or maybe bolt down a crate.

Wow, I have never heard of that one. Why would anyone do that? It just seems like a bad idea all around, while making the dog suffer. Some people I will just never understand.

Some of those some with fans and even heating and cooling built in they are totally customizable. My father in law swears by them and like he said unless you want to try and cool your whole cab and the truck bed The campers are no cooler then the dog boxes if built properly they are vented so the air circulates. Thats if its just not to hot all together to have them out. He was just telling about one of his buddy's was riding home from a hunt and his prize dog was in his dogbox. The same kind that I posted and had it not been for that box his dog would have died when he flipped the truck. The dog survived with only scrapes and bruises.

Phoenix311 is an unknown quantity at this point
I grew up in a small 400 population town, and every guy that came in from the country, always had their hounds or bird dogs riding in their truck bed, and most would lay on top of the tool box, going down the road, nothing restraining them at all. I've never seen one jump out of the truck, even when they parked and left the vehicle, but I don't like the idea of it, and personally would never do it with my dogs. I wouldn't even trust leashing it in the truck bed, but that's my opinion.

Here in Hawaii everyone has a truck and a dog, so you see alot of untethered dogs in truck beds. I hate to see it, esp on the highway it makes me so nervous. They made it illegal here but I never see it being enforced. Good to see people put the effort in making it safe for their dogs to ride back there

Great thread, I just made one asking pretty much the same question. Here in Texas I see a lot of dogs in beds of trucks so I thought it was the norm. Seems like it could be pretty dangerous (which I figured) guess my boy is gonna have to just ride in the AC with me lol.

Go to a local metal fab shop they can probably make you a decent box for way less than the diamond plate ones. Have them make it out of expanded metal or 2x4 or 4x4 cattle panel and you'll have a good hot weather box. When it gets cold cover it with plywood or a canvas or cloth cover and the dogs body heat will take care of the rest. There's not much insulation needed other than that.

Several people I show with have used this company to build them suitable kennels. They are also transporting several dogs. They have built in fans to make sure they don't get hot. Bangin craftsmanship, in my opinion.
