a mate of mine has an eye bolt in the floor of the tray of his ute. he has a tray back and just drilled through the tray. he has a chain hooked up to it with a caribena either end. im sure you could do something similar in the tray of a crewman, you would most likely have to put the hole in the fuel tank cover panel.
as far as dogs inside cars, as far as i am aware it is illegal to have an urestrained animal in a car. you can use a harness and loop it through the seatbelt and clip the belt in.
Bugger troy, I thought you were back to scalled me..... FEW!
Thanks for the info... great, and a lot of work too!
The crewman has a tub liner so I will have to figure out a way around that.
In my old vs I screwed a u latch to behind the cab on the aft wall. As I was drilling I noticed a small buch of fluff. Turned out I screwed it into the cabin, the fluff was the carpet. hahahhaha. At least it was covered! I was sure I wasn't going to do that too. Bugger. As for jumping on the roof while in the back.... never. Very polite dog. Though she did scratch the shart outa the vs chasing birds when she was a pup. What can you do when you don't see them do it? Nothing.
My dog is a beautiful choc labradore. Very smart knows heaps of tricks, learns them in 5 mins roughly. 'Bang your dead', she barks and lays on her back. Sometimes the tail waging gives her away!
haha sounds like a pretty sweet dog. my girls parents have a malamute. i consider her my second girlfriend cos every single time i go around there the dog is soooo happy to see me . sometimes she wil just sit at my feet and stare at me lovingly
shouldnt be too much work to take the tub liner out... maybe put a hole through that too..? anywho, let me know how you go
I tied a rope to each corner (decent knots as well) and joined them in the middle with a marine grade hasp that way the dog can't get over to each side. The rope is also short enough so that he can't get onto the roof.
Mind you have never been on a trip with the dog in the tray as I have the lid on there now and its not worth getting it off each time, so he now sits on the passenger seat (covered with a blanket of course...)
My dog is trained and trained well especially to catch birds, lol, what ever the cost! She does not need a lead and only hops in and out the back when asked. Very polite when I am around but like any kid its when you turn your back! She is only 11 months old, young for a lab.
