truck bed training for pups

hey guys my pup is just over 4 months old and he's getting to a size where it's getting a little hard to drive places with him inside my truck. I drive a small Ford Ranger so there's not much room in there. My question would be is he too young to put out in my bed for drives to the vet, park etc? He's very energetic at his age and loves climbing. I'm a little worried of putting him in the bed of my truck. I put him in last night while my truck was parked just to see how he would react and he seemed to like it, but at the same time I'm unsure if he's going to want to jump out? I've never had a dog before so if someone could chime in on this who's had experience in similar situations it would really help. Here's two pics from last night of him in the bed of my truck. Thanks again.

Yours is technically a little different then mine. You asked how to train. Mine was just truck beds in a general lump sum. XP

I would not do it, either tie him up properly so he can't jump out or what I would do and have done is secure a crate in there and crate him .

If it is just you in the cab and you still want him to ride up front with you use one of the seat belt restraints you can get just about anywhere for dogs now to keep him still and secure. I would like to also add that when I train I train my dogs to set in the floor board of the vehicle if they are not restrained. My female Dreamer loads up and lays down in the floor board and doesn't move until we arrive at our destination it just take time and patience to train a dog to stay where you want them.

Run a chain across the front of the bed, then clip another short chain to the center of it with a swivel snap on the dog end and you're good to go. Just make sure the chain the dog is fastened to is long enough to let the dog lay down but short enough that it can't get over the side.

i just let my puppy (bout same age) sit up front or he sits on my lap which is a pain.. but i wouldnt do it personally, u can tie him down in the back, but only problem would be him getting thrown around.. but if u figure it out see if he likes it and doesnt scare him down to pieces, gl

Well at his age you should make a dog run for him in the truck bed..

ie: A cable that runs from the front driver or passenger of bed that is directly secured to his collar so it does not allow him to reach over the top railing with his front paws... I recommend this or something similar for at least 1 or 2 years.

ps... I drive a explorer sport trac 4 door but still put the dog in the back if he is wet,muddy or I need the room.. I use the setup listed above.. But I have hooks and many things to attach to in that vehicle.

Edit -- You could always just keep a tied down all metal kennel in the back as well.

That's what I've done for ever, 33 years of forever with pits, I've had one other dog breed, the ACD, he doesn't test feet up. Never has. He is loose.
Long hauls, crate or inside the cab.

This is what I use to haul dogs with. More permanent and unsightly than most people want but I use it so often it's worth it. In my beat up old pickup who cares anyway.

Is your bay dog catahoula/blue tick? Walker/blue? I'd like to see that dog outta the kennel.

I will probably try this out it seems pretty safe. I don't mind my pup inside my truck but he just loves looking out the window and of course sticking his head out. I figured he might be as happy in the bed but i definitely don't want him to hurt himself. Also like the idea of training them to lay on the floor but at 4 months it's pretty tough, he wants to see everyone and bark at people in other cars lol.

I would secure a crate, you never know if an accident may occur. Then what would happen to the pup. You can also get him some doggles to protect his eye's if you choose to leave him hang out the window or in the back secured.

I may as well tell you now that if you get doggles I will point and laugh if I see you. That's the craziest thing ever, pointed straight at the furmommy market. Don't do it. Resist. Just bubble wrap the dog before you take him out.
