I know it's safer to have a dog car seat but I'm one of those who doesn't use them, although I have used them. I do leash Patti's harness to the seat, so she isn't running around the vehicle. When we go to the mountains its a 14-hour-drive and it works better for us. She can either get up in a seat and look out but typically she rides laying down on the floor in the back. I can't imagine keeping a dog in a crate for a long drive and if you're just going across town I wouldn't use a crate. Unless they're strapped tight in a car seat or a crate the dog is going to get slammed around if there's an accident.
To each his own... Whatever works and makes one feel good, you should do it.
