Make my 2015 Sahara Unlimited more Dog friendly?

I have two huskies so I want to make my Stock Jeep more dog friendly, such as easier for them to access, comfortability and safety. Any suggestions?Name:  ImageUploadedByAG Free1430066382.416752.jpg

Just open the door and let them hop in. They will just be just fine. I have never heard of any dog complain about being allowed to ride. They don't need all the amenities of a full service Marriott.

I have a question... What about riding with dogs when the doors are off? We have 2 dogs that love the Jeep but we want them to ride safe.

As dogs get older they can begin to have issues with their backs and/or their hips. You may want to consider a pet ramp to make getting in and out easier on your dogs.



For riding with the doors off you can get a pet harness that will keep them restrained just enough to protect them, but still give them enough freedom they don't feel like they are trapped.



The last thing to consider is the hair from the Huskies. You will want some kind of liner that gives the dogs traction, but doesn't hold onto the hair and look bad. Can't help you on that one - you'll have to look around for that one. My sister runs a Husky web page/blog of sorts.

I put the seat down just like you have it and put a dog beg over the crack. Keeps my dogs from getting their legs caught down there and provides them something comfortable for travel. My dogs go pretty much everywhere with me including the trail and it's worked out well so far. Plus, they have the extra room in the back to walk around.

First thing I would do is move that sub (regardless of the dogs) or replace it with an aftermarket in a different location. That sub is just going to be a catch all for whatever falls in the jeep.

May want to consider bed lining the tub.

Life's hard. It's harder if you're stupid.

I just throw a couple moving blankets over the back seat for my Dobermutts.

get the dirty dog trench covers. Best thing for covering the space when the seats are down.
