My dog has always been put in a crate in the car from being a puppy, I find that it gives him room to lie down comfortably but remain safe at the same time. I have just gotten a new car which is very small in comparison to my larger car, which his crate is in. I can fit his crate into the smaller car however I have to fold the back seats down, which is not ideal. The car is a vauxhall viva and my dog is a small-medium breed of dog (cavachon). He has plenty of room in his current crate so I could potentially down size. However I was just wondering what methods everyone uses for restraining dogs in small cars or if anyone knows of any crates that will fit a small car. He is often in the car and for long periods of time so it needs to be something long term and safe.
