Default Dogs in a F-body...

So every once and a while I find myself needing to take my dog with me in my SS. I try not to get him in there on my leather and all but sometimes I just need to. Anyways he's about 65 lbs. a German Shepard/ Lab/ & Chow mix, a pretty good sized dog but not huge. He seems to have a lot of trouble in the front passenger seat so I usually put him behind it and he's able to lean against the front seat and stick his head out of the back of the window. Have any of you guys made anything to make it easier for your K9 to sit in any of the seats? He used to be able to chill laying down in my F-150 and I'm sure it blows for him having to stand and lean on the seat for the entire drive. Any thoughts?

A seat cover should help stop him from sliding around on the leather.

I tried taking my German Shepard for a ride in both my Z06 and SS... She hates them both, otherwise, I wouldn't care if she came with me. She can't get comfortable, so she prefers my truck where she has the whole back seat and windows to herself. I would always just put a blanket down on the seat for her.

I can get my two in the front seat comfortably (both are 8 lb Pomeranians).

Good thing the car screams masculinity....my dogs certainly aren't doing anything to help me there!
