I’m expecting to have our greyhound in the back of mine for the first time tomorrow - will report back!So just wondering space wise what the ID 3 with flexible floor is like for a Golden Retriever... Would it have enough space or would it be a seats down job? Anyone in similar position
Luckily our grey will hop in (when we chuck a treat in 😉).I've got a bit of padded tablecloth that came from Dunelm which sits in the bottom of the boot. It's about the same width as the boot and about half a metre longer. It's a couple of MM thick. When getting the dog (Greyhound) in and out I fold out the excess flap to cover the bumper so the dog can't scratch it. I have to lift her in, front legs first then rear, no way would she jump in, it's a bit comical as she doesn't like stepping forward with her front legs while the back ones are in the air but we get there eventually. She's happy to jump out though.
Size wise she's a small grey, just under 30 Kg and as skinny as any dog in racing trim.
A dog that heavy will be much bigger than the opening above the seat backs. It'll be stopped by the locked seat backs, just as a couple of heavy suitcases would be.Just wondered what happens to 30 - 40Kg of unrestrained dog in the event of an accident in such a situation.
