Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So I am thinking ahead about bringing Kygo to my parents house. Titus is there but he is an outside pup. They have a sunporch which i would keep kygo on because they wouldn't want him inside. I have a rigid kennel and a small car. Wondering how he would be on the sunporch unkenneled? Should i invest in a small kennel? Doesn't seem like that would be ample... Ideas?

Only you know your dog and if they are a good candidate for not kenneling.

For travel, if necessary, I bought a collapsible soft sided crate. My boy is good enough to trust in a soft sided crate these days. An alternative is a wire crate that collapses flat for portability. My in-laws travel with a wire crate folded flat in their car with no trouble. Granted I have no idea how small you mean by "small car". Obviously a Kia Rio, for example, is much smaller than a Toyota Camry and size is relative. Wink

Couldn't agree with that statement more.

Mine travel loose but they're also excellent travelers. Sasha just crashes until I stop and Avalanche is looking over my shoulder to see where we're going. But both stay in the back of the Jeep with no qualms (unless I get out, in which case one of them will be "driving" till I get back Smile )

Personally, if it's just for a day trip it doesn't sound like it'd be pleasant for either of you. He's going to want to be inside with you; the parent's sun room may suffer if he's made to stay on it ... regrettably, I'd be inclined to leave him home.

We fit a 42" wire crate, folded up, standing on its side and bungied to the back of the front head rests in a Subaru WRX.

I find that Archer tolerates tethering much, much better when he's tethered near enough to Ami to see, hear him and even do an occasional "Tug" on a toy but not so clse their lines get crossed. Took a bit of finagling to work that out though - really important to not let the lines touch - you could strangle or maim one of them if the lines are too close.
