    Please share photos of your Model X with your dog. What space in your Model X does your dog/dogs ride? I especially would like to see a pic with a dog in a 6 seat configuration with the dog in between the two middle seats.

    I share a lot of things with my dog but I doubt he would be interested in pictures of my car. When I have an X, the shedder will be in the way back with the 3rd row folded and the 2nd row seatbacks covered.

    Any of you out there with a 6 seater and medium to large dog care to take a pic of your dog between the two middle seats. Thanks

    We're getting ready for a roadtrip with Razz (the wonder dog!) and am thinking I should buy a harness that can be teathered to one of the tie-downs in back. Read an article about what happens to dogs in a serious accident. Not pretty...for the dog or the owners. You consider that?

    Ye
    Yea they have both been on the floor. The liver/white one likes the back and the orange/white prefers the sets.

    IMG_7958.JPG IMG_7960.JPG Here are couple pictures of Riley in his favorite spot in my X. Riley is a 65 lb Golden Retriever. Initially I had Riley sit in the 3rd row seats. One day he just stepped down and sat in the space in front of the third row seats. Since then, that's where he sits. I have a 21x34 foam bath rug in his sitting spot.

    Awesome. Just the pictures I needed. My dog is closer to 100 Ibs but looks like he would fit. Your Golden is beautiful.

    Regarding the middle seats, sorry, once Stewart (a smart Border Collie) enjoys those it's all over, and he'll demand it every morning.
    For now, he's in the back with a nice Model X Evanexx divider solution. Don't push me to let him forward, it will happen w/o wife knowing soon.......

    You should absolutely get a harness for your dog. We have one each of this for our two dogs: http://amzn.com/B000MD3NOK. We haven't taken them in the X yet, but we always tethered them to the upper car seat tether anchors. Now that I think about it we may need a longer tether since the anchor is so low on the backs of the Model X seats compared to our Accord.

    While tethered our dogs can turn in complete circles which they like to do without getting tangled up. I think the harness came with something to attach them to the seat belt, but this was no good as they tended to get tangled, and when our younger dog was a pup she chewed through a seat belt :mad: Attaching to the car seat tethers has worked wonders, and it also stops them from being able to get as far forward in the vehicle.

    We plan on putting ours in the third row with a hammock style seat cover. That way we can still store some luggage in the back, toddler in the middle seat middle row, and probably luggage in the outer second row seats as well.

    Thanks everyone. I've been going back and forth with the 6 or 7 seat configuration. I already ordered the 6 seat prior to finding this thread. All the replies and pictures have been helpful. I have two 25 pound Corgis that have seatbelts when I drive, but since I ordered the six seater I was worried where they would sit, since the seats don't look wide enough for them to sit comfortably. Maybe they can sit in the middle and I could extend their seat belts to be long enough so they are still secure. Thank you all for the pics. They were helpful.
