Help - Dog Containment

Hi,

Ideas needed for keeping three dogs, two large, one small, in the back of a
Series III.

Haven't found a dog barrier/screen that would fit on Google.

TIA

My old 109 had a hand-made dog guard, which consisted of heavy-duty
plastic trellis cut to fit and cable tied into place. Quite
effective, and very cheap....

Thanks but that one only comes half way down.

I forgot to mention I have a roll cage strut across where that one ends at
the bottom and a space below that needs to be blocked.

there is one for a station wagon goes to the floor, about 100.
but if I were you I'd have some weld mesh, cut it to size and clip it
to your roll cage.

If I was going to where you want to go, I wouldn't start from
here!

If I were you (and I'm not), I'd make a dog crate to fit the
available space. That will contain the dogs and all the
accompanying dust and dirt.

I have made airline travelling boxes for my own dogs for years.
I make the end frames of 2"X1"; then use 1/8" ply for the top,
bottom, and sides; mesh on the door and end.

So long as a dog cannot get its teeth around an edge, light
materials like this are quite strong enough and because it is
very light you can remove the box quickly and easily.

Just another idea for you. Email if you want the design.

Great idea.

However, I'm only allowed to use power tools under close supervision :-)

Derry's right. My dogs travel in boxes in the Volvo. This started
because I didn't want hair and slobber all over my nice new Volvo.
But...

The dogs are happier in there than loose - they lay down and stay
relaxed. They don't get carsick because they aren't jumping about the
place, and they don't scare the life out of cyclists at traffic
lights.

In a crash, they will fare much better as the box will hold them in
place rather than flinging them into the dog guard at high speed.

I can also use the luggage space above the boxes .

You can buy a good sized plastic dog box for about 50 from a kennels
supply place.
