Funky travel hammock for you best friend! A cleaver way to keep your dog safe and your car clean(er)... If you live where there are laws about dogs being restrained in vehicles this is a great way to do it :)

This system uses the adjustable height headrests to support a heavy weight denim hammock, so obviously isn't suitable for vehicles which have fixed headrests. This hammock is secured with pockets cut into the denim and heavy duty cable ties, so there is no modification or damage to the vehicle!

Quick safety pointer: DO NOT clip your dog in by the collar, have a safety approved car travel harness!!!

Step 1: Things You Will Need!

For this project you will need;

  • sewing machine (I would not recommend doing this by hand, not only would it take you forever, it would not be strong enough to support your dog safely)
  • pins
  • thread
  • scissors
  • chalk
  • tap measure
  • a helper (2 legged kind is good, reaching to measure can be tricky)
  • heavy weight denim
  • Dowel (heavier the dog the thicker the dowel)
  • hand saw
  • Hobby/craft/stanley knife
  • heavy duty cable ties
  • seat belt to dog clip adapter (from the pet store)

Genius! Maybe we can the dog on vacations now!
<p>Is that a Blue Merle Collie? </p>
Thanks for asking. She is a tri-colour Rough Collie.
<p>hey. you must sell this. there are not seat-belts for dogs. </p>
<p>I have a dog Harness that is a seat belt as well. when the seats are full of humans though the dog has to be in the back (suv) and then I have a leash tied to a D ring in the floor of the trunk that I fasten to her Harness. not only is it dangerous for the dog to be free inside a car in case of an accident but a free dog can be thrown around and greatly injure others. </p><p>To the OP this is a very nice ible I show it to my friends :)</p>
<p>Seat belts for Dogs are sold in Canada. I have one for my Buddy.</p>
<p>What a wonderful idea to keep things clean and contain pups of a larger size. My hairy husky-shepherd mix usually coats the whole car in his fur. I can't wait to make one of these!</p>
<p>Thank you so much , my dog drives me nuts when traveling , on my lap , then on the floor , on my lap , you get the idea this is great thanks again</p>
<p>It would be lovely if you could post a picture if you make one :D</p>
