MeNSneef Posted June 10, 2005 Report Share Posted June 10, 2005 Hi everybody, I've got a question about transportation/accomodation when it comes to border collies. Right now I have a 3YO border collie who I did 8 months training with during my last year in college and will be training again this coming year, over the summer we won't have much opportunity to work, but I have used her a couple times. Anyways, she goes with me many places that I go and has moved with me a few times (to college, home again, to a summer job, etc). I have a crate which she is very comfortable in the only problem is that I drive a regular cab truck, so the crate has to be outside, and thus the dog is usually on my seat instead of in the crate during travelling. I am toying with the idea of building a "box" that I could mount in my truck box for her to ride in when I have other passengers or when she's muddy/wet or whatever. I am from Canada so it needs to be adjustable for both hot and cold weather travel. I was thinking about something that would fit across the whole width of my truck box, against the tailgate, with two doors in it and a removable divider in the middle sot aht if I have 2 dogs someday I could care them both. I was thinking that it would be nice if I could remove it from the truck and use it as a temporary dog house if I needed to, so I'm trying to decide if it needs to have a floor or not? I am looking for ideas from people who have made something like this or just ideas for the size of the enclosure, materials etc. Anybody have plans/pictures of anything like this? Any help would be wonderful! Thanks! ~Heather and "Sneef" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
