…And you bought the car! It’s actually my first time to see a situation like this. I wonder if I can do the same for my 11 cats back at home, haha! I’m happy that your dog fits in the car, without hassles and such worries. I’m a pet-lover too, that’s why I can understand this whole situation. :)

Thanks for the great pictures, I gotta say it doesn't look like the Leaf is the car for me and my Bernese Mountain Dog.

I hope you have a great, strong harness to tether your dog to the car though! In a front collision, don't count on the headrests or front seats to stop your dog from falling forwards with possibly fatal consequences! It scares me how many people drive around with the dog completely unrestrained in the car, not even considering what will happen in a crash.

I'm still waiting for someone to make a big electric estate car that can fit a proper, sturdy tube metal dog cage in the back.

OMG at least another person with the same question I had. I bought mine, but I actually reall yhesistate getting the dogs in the car as I'm leasing mine. It would be so costly if they scratched the paint while getting in, or scratched the plastics inside... :-(

And the dog cages don't fit the inside is too oddly shaped.

I really didn't expect to find any info to my question "will my large dog fit in a nissan leaf" but hey presto, there IS a crazy person making their experience known to the world... Thanks ;)

Really appreciate the effort you went to to provide those of us considering a Leaf for our "dog car". Hopefully next time you will have a salesman who will say "hey, how about you handle the doggy and I'll take the photo".

what about alarm when you leave dog in car can you deactivate it
