You know its funny you say that, it's either the fit or the crz that I was looking to buy. Its to bad the crz IMHO looks better than the fit.. I will have to measure out the back and see if one can fit in the back with the other in the passenger seat. Like I said though its not often since everything is walking distance.Our little 24 pound beatszu ( beagle shitzu mix) fits just fine in the back and I suspect a dog up to about 50 pounds might be just fine, but two 70 pound dogs are not going to have enough room to stand up and turn around. It would be like putting them into too small a crate.
They would fit in the back of my Honda fit with the rear seat lowered, but unless they are trained to lay down and stay without moving, they are not going to be happy riding in the back of a CRZ.
Try : A lab, a Catahoula Leapord Dog and a small bull mix. 2 in the back, bull in the front.Has anyone put their pets in the cargo area yet? I have 2 70lbs staffies and was worried on whether or not they would fit comfortably in the back.. Not long trips but short ones to parks or vet and so on..
LMao sounds like they will be fine in the back, that catahoula is about the same size as my male, my fem is only 60 and stubby legged. lol .. Thanks guys all very helpful..Try : A lab, a Catahoula Leapord Dog and a small bull mix. 2 in the back, bull in the front.
Shatner might be able to give an idea how this works, if he wants to chime in.. or you can pm him.
Not quite as big as the Staffies... but he is doing a very long trip with them soon.
I did have an 120lb Bernese in back for about a two hour trip.. no problem, except for his snoring!
Question: how many pomeranians can one fit into a CR-Z?LMao sounds like they will be fine in the back, that catahoula is about the same size as my male, my fem is only 60 and stubby legged. lol .. Thanks guys all very helpful..
Can you post a picture of your car loaded with the 2 dogs in the back.I can fit all 3 of my dogs in the car w/ a bit of room for luggage, glass blowing torch and tools and a camera. The only thing I can't fit is my kiln. But that's a 4'x4'x4' oven with handles and other stuff not included in the measurements.
My 2 bigger dogs in the back. A 60# lab and a 50# Catahoula Leopard Dog. My 3rd can fit in the front seat. He's a little 40# bully mix.
It's tight, but it can be done. I'm getting ready to do a road trip from Houston, Tx. to Merida, Yucatan, Mexico with all of the above.
I think you'll be fine with your two dogs. :thumbsup:

I cannot even imagine?
The 2 bigs really don't take up too much room once they've settled in. They just curl up and sleep. Or if they're awake, Nox, my Lab lays in the very back, on the rubber mat, so he doesn't slip and looks out the rear glass. Locust, my Catahoula, looks out one of the side windows, if not sleeping. LUI, my bully mix fits nicely in the front, curled up or sitting.Lmao I second that!
No problem on the pics.Yeah, ditto on thanks for the pix!
We've got a 5 month yellow Lab ("Max") who is already 53 lbs. He's gonna be big (105 lb approx we're told).
I've been car-shopping, and although the CR-Z is atop my list for daily driver I was worried Max wouldn't fit in the back when he's full-grown. Sure appreciate your pix, as it seems he will do fine.
Couple of Q's:
1. How do you get your dogs into the hatch? (ie do they just jump in, or do you lure with treats?) This is our 1st dog, so far Max usually gets into his crate fine for drives.
2. Do you tie them down at all, or do they just lie down and that's that?
