Sandy from Colorado wrote to us about her dog’s experience with the Lookout Perch pet car seat:
“My dog loves the lookout perch car seat! Bessie is too big for most car seats but since she has short legs I really wanted to find something for her. I am so glad I found your website! The lookout perch is perfect for her. And I feel better knowing she is secure in the car. I will send you a picture of Bessie in her seat soon. For now, here is one of her at home.”
“Thank you Sandy and Bessie. We are really glad you both like the Lookout Perch pet car seat! Don’t forget that if you have passenger-side air bags to turn them off if Bessie is sitting in the front. Happy New Year!”
The Lookout Perch pet car seat is strapped in and secured with the seat belt of the car. There is an attaching strap which can clip onto the back of the dog’s harness. Don’t clip it to the dog’s collar. Purchase one of our dog car harnesses or get a regular walking harness from the pet store.
We went to visit our family in Texas for Thanksgiving. It is a twelve hour drive from Lawrence, Kansas to Kyle, Texas. We could have flown but it would have been more expensive and we would have had to find someone to take care of our dogs while we were gone. So, my husband and I put the dog car harnesses on the dogs and hopped in the car.
The drive from Kansas to Texas was rather uneventful. We got stuck in traffic a few times while driving through Wichita, Oklahoma City, Fort Worth, and other towns where everyone was one the road trying traveling for the holidays. We made lots of pit stops for gas, food, potty breaks, and just to stretch our legs. Oh, we did have w few times where we had to stop suddenly. Traffic was truely aweful!
Even though we took a relatively small car, the dogs had more room than we did. The back seat floor was covered with the Extend-A-Seat so they had the seats and the Extend-A-Seat to stretch out on. With the floor covered, Maya lay right in the center and had her head resting on the center console. Sephi mostly lay off to the side and put her head near the window for fresh air. Both had their dog car harnesses on, but they have the dog car harnesses with an adjustable strap so that they can sit, stand, and laydown without getting tangled in the dog car harness mechanism.
I’m glad it wasn’t so bad for the dogs. Although I enjoyed the time with my family, I am not looking forward to the long twelve hour trip back home. But, it was all worth it. I bet Sephi and Maya would say the same. We love the holidays!
