Dog carrier for ATV

Hope you can I help...

I would like to build or buy some type of cage/carrier so my dog(70lb medium sized dog) can sit comfortbly on the back rack of my Polaris Sportsman while I ride.

Anyone ever done this before and have any reccomendations or photos of their contraption? Any manufacturers who already make a product like this?

Thanks for any advice.

i'd say a pet carrier would work just strap it to the back rack.

Re: Dog carrier for ATV

Strapping a regular carrier sounds like it would work to me, as long as it's tight enough. We strap coolers on the backs of ours and if it's not tight, the cooler bounces and turns all over the place. I've actually had to stop because my cooler turned upside down. That wouldn't be good for a dog. I assume you're taking him/her hunting because riding like that wouldn't be much fun. If you can strap a regular carrier on the back and it fit fairly well and was tight enough, I wouldn't waste my money on something else. That's just my opinion.

Would'nt that make your weight in the back heavy and i you went Up-hill you would have a higher chance of falling over backwards?

Iv'e seen were a guy put carpet on his gas tank , the dog stood in front of the rider on the gas tank and leaned into his owner for support, the carpet alowed the dog to get traction and also protect the tank, if this wont work for you I would strap on a crate of some kind with an open top so the dog can bail in case of an emergency, carpet lined of course, just a suggestion, good luck
