I have a couple of questions an

When traveling to and from hunts - does your dog ride in the cab or in a kennel in the bed?
If they ride in the cab, do you use seat protectors? If so, which brand?
If they ride in a kennel, which one do you have?

Thanks

I hate a wet, muddy dog in the cab of my truck so I try to avoid it. The kennel below is great, they used to be called Rough Tough kennels I believe, now they are branded as Ruff Land. On cold winter road trips I have an insulated kennel jacket over it.

Mine ride in the cab most of the time. Seats have cordura covers that are easy to take off and wash. Current truck has cabelas brand. I like them ok. Nicest ones I’ve had were marathon. I always have insulated dog boxes in the bed of the truck inside a topper if I don’t want to put them in the cab.

I keep a Crate on the decked 2/3 seat space in the back. A Midwest SUV crate fit my power wagon like it was made for it. My Vizsla goes with me all over the place, not just hunting. It rides like pictured most of of the time, but if I know I will be on a muddy messy hunt or an extended hunting road trip, I flip both seats up to deck the entire back, cover the seats and deck with a Muddy River seat protector, then put the crate back in on top of the seat protector.

my dogs are family members. They ride in the back seat with a blanket on the seat. I always bring towels to dry off my dog after hunts.

This! I put an old blanket over the whole seat & dry her off good. Then she gets a hamburger or whatever I have on the way home!

I have a camper top on my truck, during duck hunting season I normally I have my memory foam mattress back there with sleeping backs, she loves it back there. She rides in cab too, I use weathertech seat covers, driver and passenger. Wet dog not an issue, she dries off fast naturally, but I always keep a towel on the truck if needed.

He kennels in the back seat....except one time.
The farmer had spread chicken manure on the pasture next to the tank we were hunting......guess who decided to go roll around in it? He stunk for two weeks. I threw the kennel in the back of the truck and he road home wet in 35 degree weather.

3-4 bird dogs. Kennels in bed of truck with topper. I worry about heat much more so than cold.

Dog box in back of truck, or a dog trailer. For a quick trip with 1 dog I’ve got a single plastic crate that fits in back seat floorboard also.

She rides pretty good. My uncle was a big bird hunter, transported his dogs in the trunk of his Buick - did have a breather for it.

In the cab of the truck. I have marathon seat covers. Dry her off before she gets in ans throw a couple old towels on the seat to absorb any additional water.
