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.

I'm looking for a portable carrier for my female husky to use when ever I take her in someone else's car like a family members or Uber. I've seen a couple foldable mesh pet carriers on amazon but she is still in her chewing phase. Ive also have had trouble on deciding what elevated bed size and what harness to get for her. I would appreciate some advice if you have any suggestions.

Many of us have the wire foldable crates that fold up similar to a brief case. Works for crating at the house and in the car. They are metal so chewing doesn't usually bother them. If you are worried about escape you can buy carabiners to clip the panels tighter. My dogs won't sleep on an elevated bed. My girl won't sleep on a bed at all. I start with comforters first to see if they will use that. If they will then I look at beds. I think we have some members who have made their own. Pups do a lot of growing so I wouldn't buy anything too expensive at first. Just something adjustable. Once she slows down her growing ruffwear make great harnesses.

If I'm reading this right - and different, I think, from the way Jenn answered it, you're looking for a crate that you can use *in* the vehicle not one you can use after you arrive -- Yes?? And even if used in a vehicle, I'd think you'd want something that isn't going to leak.

Possibly a cheap plastic crate - something you don't mind getting chewed up because you're not going to have it as soon as he outgrows it?  Once he's stopped growing then the metal crates are good - though my newest has bent hers some.

Beds ... I have three dogs and two cats - I've invested in dog beds, nope, the floors more comfortable.  Sky (the newest mentioned above) shove the pad in the bottom of her crate out of the way, it's always in the back ... best to see if they'll use a bed before you start thinking about getting one.  If you use a comforter - they might use it just because it smells like you and then not use a bed because it doesn't.  (( My pups sometimes use an old flannel shirt to sleep on -- it's softer than a pad<???> ))
