Lots of dogs have to be in plastic, uncomfortable beds when they are in the car but luckily that is no longer the case. I found a great create that is not plastic and is very comfortable! It is from a brand called Petmate, the create is soft all around and has holes of the dogs to breath in. It comes in pink and brown. I bought the brown one and it is fantastic. My dog loves it and as soon as I enter the car he jumps in. It is comfortable and easy to use, a great product find!
