We look forward to hearing how the SWing riders transport their pets! This photo shows a rear luggage box with a hole cut in the top for an extra pooch.

That reminds of scooting in Cozumel Mexico. I saw a Mexican family that had mom, dad, three kids and a dog on a small scooter. I almost ran off the road looking at that one Shocked

Past three dogs. 2 Jack Russell's, Yorkshire. All rode in my Givi box with head size hole cut in it. Lots of miles, no problems----as far as Central America, Alaska, James Bay, Europe, Korea.

They are wonderful alarm system as you camp---Jack Russell bites people who want to sit on bike as it is parked.

Scooter---"tank Bag" on hump also worked with Moose, Yorkshire---who recently took the final nap in old age.

I use an over-the-shoulder pouch for my Pomeranian "Tiki". She likes it better than my truck.

Many moons ago a friend of mine had an old Jaguar. He'd cut two holes in the rear parcel shelf, and his two labradors used to travel quite happily in the boot (trunk). He stopped at a red light one day, with a police car behind him. Two dogs' heads popped up through the holes - the cop's face was something to see!! Laughing

I bought a "Petmate Curvations Pet Carrier" and unzipped the top off. The holes on the side allow me to strap the carrier to the side rails right behind my seat. My dog BamBam loves to go for rides and will wrap his head around my shoulder to catch more wind and see where he is going.

My dog, "Moose" would need a sidecar.
He's not coordinated enough to ride his own Swing, and he's too big

Greta sits on the flat floor of my People 250 but doesn't like the hump on the Swing.
Greta's an 85 # (39 Kg) German Shepherd.
Big sloppy smiles!

PostSubject: Great replies   How many dogs? I_icon_minitimeMon Oct 22, 2012 11:19 pm

Thanks to all for the replies - plenty of ideas brought forth.

We've got the four dogs seen in the image, and handling most of them is workable, however it seems we'll have to build some sort of bracket or platform for one of the dogs. This may mean some creative sheet metal or composites designing. If we get anything that works, I'll post an image.

Regards
