Default Dog in Vette

How many of your bring your dog's in the car, do any of you have a small enough dog that rides in the back?

Even if I had a dog, I wouldn't do this. Dog hair number 1 reason not too. Then leather/console scratches #2.

Vacuum and towel - both issues solved... It's a car to be enjoyed!

A shedding, smelly, scratchy, drooly, **** glandy, randomly barfy animal in my Vette? Um,, not just no, but hell no.

Maybe we should just load up some goats and gerbils and really have some fun?

I say the same thing but substitute "house" for "Vette"...

+1. And then if your dog smells.

I can walk into a garage and tell if someone smoked in there within 12 hours. Would hate to buy a used Cette smelling like a wet dog. Haha

And I love animals.

In my Yukon? All day. Not in the Vette.

My previous beagle got rides in my C6 all the time and sadly only got a few in the C7 in the week he passed. His final ride was in the vette. I am currently fostering a 85lb South American hound who I had to ferry a few places in the C7 while the other car was in the shop. The 85lb barely fit. With the low entry height, vette's make it easy for smaller dogs to hop in. Just lay a towel on the seat and console first.

Anyone who has had a dog that sheds knows that is not a simple feat. Their hair clings and finds its way into every nook and cranny. You will not be cleaning your car to that level every time you drive it.

I do subscribe to a car is to be enjoyed. 100% agree. That is why I drive my vette year round. And if that mess and damage doesn't bug you, then by all means. For me, I don't want that all over my car..or my clothes for that matter.

Now a non-shedding, non-smelling, non-drooling, potty trained dog who can guarantee me it won't have accident....then I might consider letting it lay down in the trunk.

I want to make as many memories as I can with my black lab. At 13 I know I don't have much more time with her. Before "that day" comes we'll be going for a nice long drive with the top off by the beach.

I had a similar situation, got Bailey after the 67 and he loved riding in the car, so much so I nicknamed him the Navigator. He passed before I got the 2017 but he would have rode in it as well. My wife calls the 67 "Bailey's Car". He rides in the 2017 but hangs from the mirror.

I have a 50 lb pitbull mix who will scratch my C7 interior to bits. Plus he occasionally vomits when in my DD.

I bring my 40lb Australian Sheppard in my car all of the time. She loves going to the office with me. She is well behaved and I use a seat liner off Amazon to protect my seat. She doesn't crawl on anything and even though her hair gets in the car its easily vacuumed. My Vette is my daily driver and while I take very good care of it, it's just a car and I enjoy it.

No... other vehicles and crates are used for hauling pets.

LMAO. I don't get vette owners sometimes. It's a car, a tool to be used and enjoyed. If these cars were Maybach's or something ridiculously high end, I would get it. But, its a Chevy. Vacuum it out and put a towel down or something. Sheesh.
