Retreiver, Golden, Lab etc.

Most are so damn loyal and people loving that they just chill out and enjoy the ride. My golden sleeps on the rear seat when we ride with the top off. I think shes just lazy, doesn't have to put any effort into getting into the wind

Your dog should match your Jeep. As most Jeeps are made of parts from many companies, a Mutt is the best choice. I've addopted two mutts that are both over 10 yrs old now. They are smart, don't have the genetic defects many inbread breeds do and appreciate freedom, just like us Jeep owners.

Hopefully you do realize that hauling your dog in your Jeep is going to require some thought to the critter's safety.

They can get overheated with the sun beating down on them.
If you don't have a proper restraint they can fall out or be injured when jumping out to bark at the dog in the car in the next lane.
On rough trails they can get scared sh!tless too with the vehicle bouncing around and the dog not able to get good traction to balance itself.

I have a friend who used to have the best Jeep dog I've ever known. He was a pound hound, mixed breed. His name was "Tick" and he was a Jeepin son of a gun. He loved everybody and never had trouble with other dogs either.

Great Dane!!

They love rides and are sure-footed enough to bounce around a little. They're big enough to put their butts on the back seat (or tailgate), front feet on the floor and still be able to see everything up front w/ getting up.

Mine wears a halti (head hardness). I attach a 10" leash to it and loop the handle through the front passenger seat belt. I put a regular leash from his collar to the back seat belt. He's safe and secure, lips flapping in the wind, happy as a clam. Also, you don't have to worry about where to put your valuables when running into the store.

You do get followed a lot, though. I had one guy blow a red light to get along side the Jeep. He said, " I had to get up here just to prove to my wife that you didn't have a cow with you!"

Speaking of cows, my two cattle dog mixes love riding in the jeep. With the top off like others have said they just chill out and enjoy the ride.

Of course if I ever come across a cow on the trail it may be game on

our cattle dog likes to bark at the cows as we go by the cow farms.

a well behaved lab that will stay when you say stay and one that wont jump in the fron seat and try to give him or herself a driving lesson. oh yeah probably a good idea to keep their nails on the lowish side, i've learned the hard way bunch of nicks on the side of the jeep below the door oh well its a sign of the dogs love

My Weimaraner and Golden both love riding in the back of the Jeep. I have given some thought to picking up a Smittybilt CRES net though but havent pulled the trigger yet. There are plenty of companies that make restraints for dogs and Jeeps.

Dusty, Bought her from someone who left her in a kennel all the time when she was a puppy, I got her when she was 8 months old. She is purebred, PO paid $600 for her and i gave her $150. Best money I have every spent and I think you will see from the pics, she hasn't seen a kennel since she got a new Dad.




^^^^This stick is like 4 feet long, she was so proud of her self
After a few beers i give her the keys

i am partial to mix breeds, particularly lab mixes. my dog LOVES to ride in my jeep, she is a lab/rot mix. plus, she is pretty big, so when she is in there, i don't need to worry about leaving the jeep running with the top and doors off because no one is going to want to steal a vehicle with a big arse dog in it.

Dogs, just like Jeeps are very individual taste. You need to find a breed that fits your lifestyle, some dogs are extremely active while others are lap dogs that go with the flow. Do a little research on some that would work for you and then TRAIN it to your liking and needs. I have had great luck with dogs rescued from the pound or a rescue group. Just like your Jeep the right one will poke it's nose at you and the rest will be tales to tell later.

Also, if the Jeep breaks down you can ride the dog home.

i think there is no certain breed you should look for...every dog is unique, the all have their own personalities. i could say get a german shepherd becasue my shepherd is amazing in my jeep...but a different shepherd could flip their shit riding in a jeep. id strongly suggest getting a dog from the pound. 1. they have their shots and stuff. 2. they get a loving home and dont die due to no one adopting 3. you dont have to spend hundreds of dollars for a breeder. 4. you saved a life
