carseats

I would like carseat recommendations, preferably one that sits up high enough that Trooper can look out the window.

Thanks all!

I have always just used a donut bed on the seat, and a good quality car harness that attaches to the seat belt. Kodi doesn't mind at all that he can't see out... He just curls up and sleeps.

Lily rides in a small crate that is seat belted to the back seat behind the passenger seat. It has a pad that goes half way up the sides. She just goes to sleep until I put the car in park. Then she is well rested for our next adventure. She stays safe and there is no risk of her becoming a projectile if I have to stop short.

I have the Solvit Jumbo Tagalong On Seat Booster (or something like that) that we have used for long trips. It sits up high, and Augie seemed very comfortable in it. Usually, for in town car rides or short trips, I put them in their small travel crates and seat belt the crates in.

I use the solvit seat, that straps in around the headrest and seat. Gabby loves it. I have used it since she was little. She will look around a bit, and then curl in her seat and chew on a toy til she falls asleep.

I bought the PetCo Car Seat Booster (or something like that, I'd have to check for sure when I got home) for Sonic when he was 8 months old and about 10 lbs.. He never took to it, I'm not sure if he didn't take because he was too old at the time or if the seat fit was getting a little snug and he couldn't really get comfortable (although it says for dogs up to 20 lbs it seemed awfully small when Sonic was in it). Aries now uses it and loves it, but again I've started her at 4 months and around 4 lbs...

Tucker has the Snoozer Large Luxury Lookout seat. We got the large so he'd have more than enough room to sleep and move around in. It has a drawers underneath that's great for storing poop bags, treats and his leash while traveling. The cover comes off if it needs to be washed and it comes with a covered cushion which can be washed also. We've traveled back and forth from NH to Fl many times and Tucker seems to enjoy the seat.
