Hi Guys! So I am preparing for a cross country trip from Baltimore, MD to San Francisco California. I am moving back home to be with my Husband who got a job in the bay area. I have been out on the east coast for 7 years now. Now looking to move back to be closer to family. =) Wanted to see if you guys had any good advice...especially about roadtripping with a pet. I have a jack russell/dachshund mix - very sweet steady girl. I also have small coupe hatchback (Acura RSX). How should she be transported for such a long distance? I have seen pet barriers where dogs are placed in the cargo area of SUVs. My car is similar to that, and was wondering if it is safe to let her roam back there without restraint? Thoughts?
