safe car travel for dogs?

Does anyone know anyone who uses the Variocage in their car? Its on sale at MightyMite, ha ha, but yeah a leeettle less right now... I'm wondering because this is the way Razz has to travel and we have some BIG trips coming up and I worry constantly about getting rear-ended

Lisa with Kraken and Maicoh has them.
Personally, way too expensive for me. I'm not even one to read the safety specs on the vehicle I buy. I figure in a REALLY bad accident, nothing is going to keep every passenger perfectly safe. So long as everyone is safe and secure on those every day rides where I *don't* get in an accident, I'm happy, so regular wire crates for me. I prefer the wire over vari-kennel or other solid type for visibility and air circulation.

Yeah I wondered about visibility. I REALLY need to see. I'll ask Lisa--I did notice she had a fortress looking thing in her car. Thanks

I also agree, the cost of these things is huge, crazy! I use dog seat belts for short trips. Kurgo, specifically.

It is crazy, but I started to wonder if it was crazy not to. Stella has always ridden belted into the seat in a car-harness, and I wish Razzle could travel that way too... but I am pretty sure with the number and types of things Razzle has chewed he would happy shred the seatbelt and thats probably pretty pricey to replace... I probably will stick with the wire crate...
