Dogs in Jeep without Top and Doors

Has anyone figured out a SAFE way to drive with no doors/top and bring your dog with you? I'm not sure it exists but I thought I'd ask.

Yes, they make harnesses for dogs.
I'm so very happy to see someone who cares enough about their pet to want to keep them safely harnessed inside the vehicle.

A friend of mine uses this type of harness every time she takes her dog out. He has a blast and she knows that he isn't going to get out or be ejected from the vehicle.


If you google "dog safety harness" you will find a plethora of results. Happy hunting!

I'll definitely have to get one of those harnesses! Didn't know they made those. We take her to the lake several times a week and it eventually just got to be a pain having to take the doors on and off that often so I stopped messing with them. Off to eBay! Thanks!

18 bucks is way cheaper than I guessed they'd be.

Tie the leash to the rollbar, the one with the speaker pods in the middle. Gave my dog enough room to move around but not enough to lean over the side. It's easy and free.

Free is always preferable. :-) I'll give it a go tomorrow when we head out. Thanks for everyone's input!

Interesting idea. Should work just like a noose

I don't have a back seat and I don't let my dogs ride up front.
My solution: I have a cable stretched trightly from the footman's loop behind the passenger side seat to the footman's loop at the gate. I reverse their harnesses so that the loop is on their chests. I have a 2nd short cable connecting the harness to the floor cable. It is just long enough for them to stand up. They can walk from front to back, sit comfortably, or lay down but there is no way that they can fall, jump, choke, or be thrown from the Jeep. I run it front to back so that I can keep my eye on them, but you can also run it from side to side. Excluding the harnesses, the whole thing cost me about $5 at the hardware store.

I've got an Akita. (130 pound teddy bear)
We use a 6' Lead and a harness instead of a collar because it offers more control and less potential for harming the dogs neck/throat.
When he's riding along with us, and we've got everything opened up,we unclip the lead from the harness, rout it around the "sport bar" between the front seats, and re-clip it to the harness. Takes about....10 seconds.
Dexter can still lay down, still do his "fast-dog" face out the windows on either side. But he cant get out.

He's smart enough not to jump out of a moving vehicle (pretty much too lazy to "jump" under any circumstances) but we take simple and effective precautions to keep him from slipping or falling out of a vehicle.

Anecdotally: I tend to like critters more than I like people. One of the most heart wrenching things I've ever seen was when I was following a pickup that had a beautiful Rotty in the back. I had been behind them for a couple of blocks, we came to a stop light. When it turned green, the moron behind the wheel of the truck gunned the engine and turned a hard left. Dog had been at the tailgate, looking at me. I was looking at it when this 100 pound dog gets slung to the rear corner of the bed and "batted" out of the bed. I was still sitting still while I watched the dog fly out of the bed of the truck and hit the pavement about 10 feet behind the truck in oncoming traffic.
Dont worry though..the dog didnt get hit by a car...because it was still TIED TO THE TRUCK. As the truck accellerated away...the dog hit the pavement just as it reached the end of its rope and got yanked airborne again. By the time I got him lit-up and stopped, that poor dog had been trying to Stop, run, fall, fly for about 100 yards. He feet were a bloody mess but he was able to stand.
I followed the guy to the nearest 24hr vet just to make sure things got taken care-of.
Driver was clearly shaken and distraught...accidents happen even if you think you are taking precautions. Dog tore up but made it. I had to get back on the street and couldnt hang with em...but wanted to.
Moral: make sure your retaining device is long enough to permit mobility but not long enough to permit them getting over the side or back.
And remember that you've got a passenger behind you that isnt belted in and doesnt have hands with which to "hang on".

http://www.jeepcargonet.com/ I'm thinking about getting a cargo net. I want the one that covers the rear tailgate and rear windows and leaves the top open. Also has barriers to keep your dog from coming up front. I think this is the way to go

This was one of my concerns. I'm currently driving a Kia Soul and with the rear seats down, it makes for a nice dog friendly trip. I know we'll end up taking the rear seat out of the Jeep to travel, so this is something to think about.
