Love ours. Awesome purchase and so worth the money and peace of mind. (also quite a nice look to boot!) We picked up the black 3-piece I posted a few posts back from AllThingsJeep. They are well made and tough - the toothed locking system is durable and there is no way our 60 lbs dog can wiggle out unless he got adventurous and went out the top!

We went ahead and 'doubled-up' of sorts and purchased thin black 75lbs zip ties from Lowes for each net corner as added insurance being our guy has fallen in love with leaning on the nets when we drive - all you see from the side mirror is a bulge with fur sticking out and a nose. Pretty funny.

I can grab some close-up pics for you if you want - just give me a holler.

gooseofdeuce Yeah, both my boxers are awesome. Zeus looks like he would take your arm off, but that would only happen if you had a dog biscuit or cheeseburger in your had. Not your had he wants though. Roxie is just a lap dog and is too passive, even with strangers. Only time i've heard her bark is when she's in her kennel and wants out. English bulldogs are good dogs too, just not good for jeeping due to overheating and high maintenance. Great for the house though.

Dirt I thought in the late 80, early 90s a golden retirever was standard issue with a wrangler? Or was that part of the Sahara package? I forget, anyhow...

I've had many dogs growing up and thru my adulthood, by far the best dog I've ever had was/is my Boxer. She's so damn smart I hardly had to train her, doesn't have any wierd quirks, never needs a bath (she plays in the sprinklers every morning then sunbathes for an hour or so after) She's great with the kids and super-super protective, but it would break her heart to have to actually bite someone.
Boxers, best dogs in the world.

TjTheo I agree with jskinn, get whatever dog you want, you'll get attached to it no matter what. And how they act is 100% on how you train them, real dog owners know this.

gooseofdeuce boxers!! well cept they wanna take over your jeep and drive it on date nights! Roxie AKA Rox is on the left and Zeus is driving. Both are rescues. Roxie likes to chase and kill beavers. Zeus was on verge of death when I found him on side of road. Roxie is good in jeep with top on or off. Zeus only comes with top on though. He jumped out of g/f's Eclipse at 55mph on way to lake one day upon hearing another dog bark. NO REAL INJURIES. minor scrapes to "knees". An hour later he was running around drink'n beer on the pontoon!

Old English Sheepdog

or as everyone calls him shaggy dog, or the little mermaid dog, or snow bear

He loves to go for a ride. Mention the word and he's at the door ready to go, then when he gets in the car he's not getting out until I at least go for a spin around the block.

Rogue Belgian Malinois with a seatbelt harness!

Cons_Table x2 ^^^ this was a very good dog, although kind of shy, he was a good addition to the meet and greet

Jerry Bransford After being around Jeff & Stephanie's (Mr & Mrs. Turdhurdler) Australian Shepherd this past weekend while wheeling, I fell in love with it. Their dog was absolutely great. He hung around the campsite and didn't run off, didn't bark, was calm, and was a great dog to be around. That kind of dog is now #1 on my list once I get the wife's approval.

JeepCreeper The Biggest Dog ever! Named Winch.

HotTinRoof Highly rec'd for any Jeep dog!

Raingler Nets
All Things Jeep - Raingler Nets 3 piece System for Jeep Wrangler 97-06 (Rear Window & Side Nets)

IMO - you want a dog big enough to get in and out without issue. But having a 'doge' will also change how you mod a little. We're not removing our side steps for instance nor getting any insane lifts as we want our 6 year old Lab/Husky to able to get in and out okay for the coming years. I love the look of the tubular side steps for instance, but one bad mis-step and yer running to the vet emergency room.

NHEric Fletch came from the pound. He's 50 lbs of JEEP dog. He fits anywhere and it turns out he's an excellent driver.

Brigadigit Here's my Jeep dog, and she is the BEST Jeep dog in the world, she's a Labradoodle so she doesn't get hair everywhere, just sand haha. She used to wind surf in the convertible mustang but now she has the Jeep. She goes everywhere with me and she loves the space, the beach driving and hanging, the wind and trails and everything it has to offer!

ElectricVolvo Don't have a dog right now so Im just givin a opinion but I would think the perfect JeeP dog would be a English Wolfhound. Just train it to hook up your winch cable to a tree or whatever. The long legs would keep it from drowin in deep mud holes and if the winch gave could probably pull you out of trouble.....besides.........awesome theft deterant

trislit I've got a Beagle that I picked up from the shelter that loves to ride in the back seat with her head over the side, ears flappin in the wind. If I try to sing with my music she even howls like crazy right along with me! Def an attention grabber...

bbunchjeepers my wife is getting ready to get a "taco bell" puppy, i`m thinking about making it a jeep dog.

clear lake jeepn Rottweiler!!

RockDawg German Shepherd for SURE

Cons_Table My boxer loves the jeep. She just hangs out and enjoys the air. My pound puppy doesnt mind the jeep either, but rather crowd the center console and hang out with me instead of enjoying the breeze with having the top down
07-12-2010 12:47 PM
ttuley Some kind of border collie or blue heeler mix. Top notch intelligence(wont jump out) and territorial(bite the hands off of would be thieves).

I have a border collie blue dog I have ever owned. Wicked high takes alot of playing but he love to catch Frisbee's so its fun for me too.

Forgot to say "shelter dog" along with everyone else.

as a pup

sedty Can't go wrong with a Lab...their water-proof just like a jeep
07-12-2010 12:37 PM
flatline I picked up a dog at the pound that had been living at the local pick and pull. she came with grease stains so she matched the jeep. and nothing says stay away like a pit bull from the junk yard.
07-12-2010 12:21 PM
toshpate shelter dog most definately, have had labs and rotties and mutts, the mutts have been the most loyal
07-12-2010 10:50 AM
bbunchjeepers I would say either a lab or a pound puppy. I have had both over the years and they have been the best dogs.
07-12-2010 08:11 AM
j33p3rz cr33p3rz I have a Chocolate lab.I dont take her anywhere because shes to hyper hard headest dog Ive ever owned.Shes getting ready to be put on the come pick up for free list LOL
07-11-2010 11:43 PM
Wyominer I have a black lab. She was a pound puppy that joined the police dept. I worked for. She eventually became my drug dog (and a good one she was!). I bought her for $1 when I saw the writting on the wall! She loves to ride in the Jeep, but will only get in one of the front doors! She refuses to get in the back! She'll get up front, the go to the back, and get out the back!

lancetkenyon Dogs that like peanut butter.

turdhurdler Here are my Jeep dogs. The white on is a shelter rescue, terrier mix, and the Aussie was given to me by a friend. Both great dogs, but the Aussie is better off road than the terrier.
