Beautiful quote there mate !!!

It is true that dogs tend to take their head out at times in the car, with a station wagon, its going to be a real problem.

One spec of dirt or small stone is all it takes to take out an eye.

INNOVA. Unless you're looking for a 4WD!
Only then should you be looking at Scorpio/Safari.

Hey tsk - yeah never really thought about the eye thingie.

My Golden retriever loves to stick his head out when I give him a joy ride in the night time. Will be more careful in the future. Thanks for bringing it in notice.

Buy him doggles(they exist).
That way no issues with flying debris.
As with bikers, I am yet to see a biker doing high speed without eye protection.
Maybe the guy who wrote the quote knows of some bikers who ride without eye protection at high speeds?

Guys, lets get on with the issue. The dog sticking its head out - Good or Bad?

As I am also planning to have a dog in the family and as per discussions, whatever is the car size, dog should not be at the last row where there is no ventilation. So does that mean that we really do not need any specific car, but need a good middle row space with solid seats.

Hey, Tsk ( Tanveer ) was mentioning my dog when he said '' buy him doggles ''

And no way does he sound like if he is attacking someone personally. He is only trying to help us and our doggies which is very appreciable.

Huntrz - Kindly Explain Please !!!! I think you have been offended as you mentioned in your post that you have been taking your doggie for the last 10 yrs and he also sticks his head out but has never had any Injury. Well that is great but still Better being safe than Sorry !!

Anyways we are all going way off topic here.

Let us stick to the Topic as to what cars are best Compatible to Dogs ( Large / medium ).

The Current Favourites are -

Toyota Innova
Tata Safari
Mahindra Scorpio
Bolero

Skoda Octavia Combi

Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder

Any more inputs guy's ?
