    It would certainly slow it down. Think seat belt.

    As a Labrador is going to be a big dog have you thought about an A frame and a tow hitch?

    We have a terrier. For travelling she has her basket between the driver and passenger seat. She has a harness on, that is fastened to the base of the passenger seat. At night now she’s older she sleeps there too. When a puppy, we had one of the soft kennels we fastened her in.

    Any risk of Sparky's bed moving at speed in the event of abrupt deceleration? Or is the bed also restrained?
    I may be looking at dog safety in a couple of months, so useful to know how the bed is secured.

    The bed just has Velcro underneath so sticks to the carpet

    Gsd in a 5.4 van

    In our previous van which was a 5.4 model Jazz used to lie and sleep behind the passenger seat next to the side door, she did take up a lot of room in the van, you just get used to moving round the van with them in it.

    Remember the dog is secured in a travelling harness, attached to a strap between the driver and passenger seats. Worst case scenario the bed slides forward but the dog stays in place.

    This is our (similar) set up.

    The bed is made of soft foam, weight negligible.
