That is an awfully unique looking dog. Very cool.Night King rides in the back seat. I just tether his leash to the roll bar and he does really well. I tried with the doors off and he did good but I was nervous the whole time so the rear doors will stay on when he rides.
I just bought a jeep JLU last month, and also have a boxer who I was very worried would jump out. He's used to convertibles, but the back seats in those were lower. The jeep backseat is high, and easy to jump out of. I bought a harness and he actually adjusted quickly and well to it. It gives him freedom to put his head up on the seat back, lay down, position closer to the door or middle of seat as he pleases and keeps him secure. He's a party boy, and I can just see him taking a flying leap out if he saw a squirrel or another dog. A harness is not overkill - it's being a smart dog owner.Hi all --- my apologies for what is likely a question asked many times, but I'm a new Jeep owner here (2DR JL Sport S, absolutely love it btw!). Basically, I am wondering about what others do with regard to having your dogs in the back when the top is down --- I guess what I am worried about is safety on the road or trail... E.g., I'd hate to have them see a squirrel, and jump out at a stop sign! I actually bought a couple of dog car harnesses from an outfit in Germany after looking at some reviews (https://www.kleinmetall.de/), but it seems like that might be overkill? I was just curious about the rule-of-thumb for those of us who are both Jeep owners and owners of crazy fun-loving dogs!
