The Lookout Doggie Car Seat is AWESOME! I bought my first one 14 years ago and, over time, upgraded to a larger size. The car seat allows the driver to pay attention to driving and not be concerned about their doggie passenger. Doggie is riding on a comfortable seat and is raised in order to see outside. My first Dachshund loved to ride in his Lookout car seat...this one is for my second Dachshund! I am looking forward to taking him for his first ride on Christmas day!
