Our woofers travel in a harness that works with standard seat belts - also while camping as they can't slip out of the harness like they could a dog collar.

That works, too... at least for many dogs. Mine has one bad habit - he chews straps, such as seat belts.

Ramp for the mutt...

While on our journey to Chilliwack our 13 year old 87 lb pound puppy was having trouble getting into the back seat of our Silverado. He was too heavy to lift and was scratching up the truck when he misfired. We finally stopped at Petco and bought a 3 way folding ramp. It is a bit of a PITA but works quite well.

You can spray the seat belts with bitter apple.

Murphy-the-Dog was a major impetus for our first trailer purchase. Part of it was because we wanted to go places where there aren't any motels, and dear wife would no longer wished to sleep in a tent. But equally important was finding out that Murphy really is a pretty good travel dog, and I have yet to see a campground that has a "no dogs" policy.

Thanks for the suggestion Haven't found a taste yet that repulses him, but I should try - bitter apple is a classic in pet control.

My dog eats green apples at home. Tried Tabasco sauce on woodwork with a different dog and he wound up loving Mexican food.......
