I'm finding this thread extremely helpful. Those of you who have that hammock thing for the back seat....is it used to secure your dog or protect the seat from fur and dirt etc.? Do you still have to use a car harness?

Ever since those harness crash testing things came out, my dogs have been riding loose in the car in the back seat (or in Logan's case, the one seat that's flipped down in the back). It won't really keep a determined dog out, but it can help. I use it mostly to keep my dogs from falling in the crack between the back seat and front seats if I have to slam on my breaks.

Eventually, I'd like to get one of the harnesses that actually WORKS in the car.

Thanks for telling me about the harness thing! I hadn't heard that. I will look into the hammock thing more - my seats are light gray, and first thing that popped in my head was that it would help protect them a little bit.

Both, lol. Well, less secure Hudson and more keep him from falling between the front seat & back. It does a really good job keeping the seat clean too

1. Nylon buckle collar
2. Cheap nylon lead (cause they drag them a lot I buy cheap)
3. Kong x-small squeaker tennis balls. You cannot live with Mia without these
4. metal food bowls
5. Starmark clicker (co much better than the other clickers I've tried)
6. Collapsible wire crate with double latches that you have to pull up before they unlatch. Mia opens crates with the simple latches.
7. Ziwipeak dehydrated raw dog food (treats)
8. Rip N Tug treat dispensing Lotus ball
9. IQ Ball (sanity saver)
10. Best bully stick's grab bag deals. I don't buy chews anywhere else
11. Food stuffable rubber toy (like a kong only we don't use real kongs because Mia has repeatedly gotten kongs stuck on her bottom jaw and freaks out. Stuff with canned food)
12. Dog beds/crate mats
13. Potty pads (yeah i know but I like them)
14. X PEN! Totally could not live without ours.
15. airline travel crates for the car
16. lid to use as a target
17. nail clippers
18. Pin brush
19. Thinning shears
20. Can I cheat? Supplements (joints), teeth sprays/toothbrush, flea and tick stuff, shampoo and spritzer (buddy wash)?

I need another 10 items.

Mostly to keep the back seat clean, although they are far more comfortable with the hammock in place because they have more usable space to lie down on.

I don't use a harness, either. Like Saeleofu, I've seen too many spectacular crash test failures to trust any of them and unfortunately my car is too small to crate them. So until I get a bigger vehicle they just ride loose in the back.
