Does anyone have this car seat? Pet Car Seat - GW Little

I am wanting to get one for the babies but I wanted to see if anyone here could share their reviews on it first? They would be greatly appreciated - THANKS!

I've seen these in the magazine over and over again and every time I tell my bf I want one! They look super comfy.

I have it (in black) and I got it from GW Little too...
It is HUGE!! I have two teapots (both are 12 lbs) and they both fit in it, probably could get another one in there too.
It's very soft and comfy, but mine hate it with a passion, but they like it better than a crate. It has these straps you hook onto the seatbelt and the other end hooks to their harness. This does allow it to have some play in it, because it can slide along the seat belt. It has a nice drawer underneath for storage, too.
But it is really, really big

Also, forgot to mention, it is humongous!!

I have two of these: Outward Hound Car Booster Seat - Travel - PetSmart

They work really well and match the leather in my car. They fold down really easily to make way for groceries, people, etc.

I saw the lookout seat that you mentioned and would like it if I had more seating (in a SUV) so I wouldn't have to remove it. It does look SUPER comfy and stylish! I also wish that they were cheaper... along with every else in our society right now!

A friend of mine has 3 shih-tzus and two of these car seats. They are very nice. I strapped Ginger in once and she really seemed to like it. She was on top of the world. She looked really cute in it, too. AWWWWWW.

However, with two teapots who like there own space, I couldn't justify buying two of these....so a couple of laundry baskets, inexpensive bed pillows & cases later, and straps from the pet store (to attach to their harnesses) and we have two matching car seats... that are completely washable. Of course, people think I'm traveling around with my laundry. But my furbutts are comfy and safe in the car and I spent about $15.

That being said, I think you'd like the lookout seat. They seemed really nice to me. Make sure you take pics if you get it!

We have it and LOVE it! We have the grey one..Tino said "NO PINK!!!"...so we had to compromise. We bought the one with the little compartment in the bottom to store things like a water bottle and treats. My only complaint is that the personalized seat belt harnesses that they sell to go along with the car seats are WAY TOO BIG!!! I asked my family to get me them for both Tino and Lola for Christmas and they are so big that both of my babies slide right out of them. Tino is 7 pounds and Lola is 3 pounds. Hope this helps.

P.s. Tino wanted me to tell you that it is great for long car rides too because he gets his own side to sleep on and his little sister Lola gets her own side too...so she doesn't have to sleep on top of him...even thought she still tries to! haha!

p.s.s We have both and SUV and a small sports car and the seat works great in both cars!

We have it in gray, it really is huge! I drive a 4runner and it takes up 2/3 of the back seats. Ours does not dip down in the front, the edges are raised all the way around. The interior is very soft and plush. We have not needed to clean ours yet but it seems like it would clean up nice. The seat belt attachments have pretty heavy clips, we had to switch to our own smaller ones. They are easy to make, if you find you have the same issue pm me and I can tell you what we did. The pull out tray is super handy for extra leashes, treats and water bowls.
Other than that it is wonderful, our babies love to look out the window and see all there is to see! I recommend it. But it is big, if you drive a car I would be careful about the size!

For those of you that posted having them, what size did you buy? The large? Could a smaller size do for two Yorkies?

I have the smaller one with the draw. It can fit more than 1 yorkie but I wouldn't think it would be as comfortable as the larger one. It is supposed to hold up to 18 lbs. If you run short trips it will be okay.

I have mine in the front seat and it seems to tip back so I need to put a towel or something to level it out. I have a pillow in it so he can see out while laying down otherwise he can see out.

I have the large, so I don't know about the smaller one. My yorkies are both over 6 lbs and the large has plenty of room for both to lay down. It is big but very easy to get used to. Also they are very light weight and easy to move. To get my two used to it I brought it inside the house after every trip and let them play and nap on it. I will try to take some pictures for you if it would help as soon as I get home from work. If you want any taken from a certin angle or distance let me know! We are happy to help!

Thanks much. I currently have two car seats, one in the front passenger and a console. Both of my girls cram into that console to be close to me, it is not comfortable for any of us. I was trying to find a super comfortable seat that would accommodate both of them in the front passenger seat. I'm thinking the medium might do the trick, but have to measure first.

We have one in the microsuede coffee color. It is not the "My Buddy" but the oversized one. It is plenty big for Shelby and Seymour. I have heard that the My Buddy one is HUGE. The one that we have already takes up more than 1/2 of the back seat in my vehicle!!!

I have the Regular sized luxury lookout car seat in the Pink!! I LOVE it. I got it last summer. The luxury ones look so much classier than the regular ones. They are really soft too. And they come with an actual cushion that comes in and out...so it is even more comfortable. It's like a bed

I emailed the company about the My Buddy, to get the dimensions and price and how to order because it is not listed in the drop down boxes in the order section of the web page. I measured and the medium size will exactly fit my front seat, but I think it only comes with one harness strap.
