    77E4F616-5BE7-46A6-99B3-DE54B65C6182.jpeg Hi all,
    we are expecting our Labrador puppy in April
    We have 2 young kids in two toddler car seats in a sedan car (can’t buy a SUV or estate just yet)
    I was wondering if
    1. the design attached would fit a 8 week puppy until we buy an estate (we will attach a seat belt harness)
    2. Can it be made in plywood and covered in carpet?
    3. Are there existing products out there that I can buy to fit in between two Toddler car seats?
    thanks guys

    1. Why could the puppy not just lie on the back seat between the child seats rather than on a constructed platform?

    2. Are you sure you want two toddlers plus a puppy in the back together without a grown up?

    Thanks Joanne F
    Toddlers are 6 &4 they’ll be fine
    The reason I’m suggesting to build a platform is I think the car seat will not be deep enough for puppy to lie down
    Thank again

    You can get backseat extenders, which might work for you: Dog Foam Car Seat Extender - Orvis UK (Orvis are expensive - you might be able to find cheaper.)

    We've stuffed the footwells with rolled-up old dog beds - something like that might also work for you. Though like JoanneF, I do think it could be very distracting to have a puppy and two toddlers on the back seat.
