Recently got a pure bread female German shepherd puppy, took her for her first ride in the Rzr the other day and she loved it, however, even though the seat is big enough for her now, being as small as she is, I know once she grows there won't be enough room for her to sit in the Rzr, so I I'm in the process of making a seat extension for her so she'll be more comfortable as she grows. So here's a photo of the of the pup on her first ride.



So here's the seat extension I'm in the process of building for her, (I still need to cover it with carpeting) but this'l give you an idea of what it'll look like.



I'm making the top removable, so I can store her pup supplies (food, water, leash, and toys) underneath, here's with the top off.



I have it anchored down using some L brackets that are attached using the Torx bolts under the front part of the seat, and the other end fits tight enough up front that it won't move. I'll add some more photos when I get it carpeted, and with a test fitting with the puppy. to show you the finished product.

Nice pup. One of the best dogs I ever had was a female GS, though she killed neighbor's chickens for a hobby ( don't worry I made up the chicken totals). I moved to heelers because they were a little more livestock friendly. However, when she loads up in the Buggy she bites everything in sight. Grab handle, door bags, etc. I have to grab her for a few seconds until she calms down.

she does like to ride in the buggy.

Beautiful pup. Mine loves to ride. I have a 4 seater so she rides in the back. Did the wolfsnout heat shield and used fatigue mat over the tusk insert that replaces a seat.
Huh, never seen those Tusk racks before, I wonder how far forward the one for a two seater extends.

It seems riding in my Rzr has a calming affect on my pup, she just sits there looking at the world going by, or lays down calm as can be.

Do they handle the ruff (no pun intended) trails pretty good, or do they get thrown around a lot ? Her first ride was on a smooth road.

Depends on the size of the pup. Bigger dog rides easier. My doxie gets bounced all over if not in her box.

I put pipe insulation around the rear grab bar. I turned the anti fatigue mat upside down so she can hold on if it’s rough. If it’s extremely rough she lays down. Doesn’t bounce her around but I’m not a speed junkie.

What's the purpose of the insulation on the grab bar, is that to give it some cushion incase she bumps into it ? My two seater has a grab bar in the front that's easily removable that I'll probably just pull out when she rides with me. You can see it in my first set of photos, then I removed it in my second set of photos.

Nice Idea!

My pupper passed away several years ago, but he would occasionally ride the ATV... I've wondered with my next buddy what I would do with the seat in a RZR.

I like your idea, keeps the seat in place. I've thought about getting a second seat base and making a full removable platform in place of the seat.

The only bad thing about it I can see, is if your Rzr isn't fully enclosed, the wood getting wet in a rain storm could affect the wood over time, my Rzr's fully enclosed so I wasn't to concerned about that. After I built, it I saw Steves post about the tusk racks, and considered that, or getting the seat base like you mentioned, but I kinda preferred to keep the seat in place, and just remove the platform as need be, plus there's the advantage of the secure storage place for pup supplies underneath it.

Beautiful pup!! I have a 2 yr old GS and she absolutely loves riding in my RZR 800 S. Every time we let her out into the garage, she will run straight to the RZR and try to jump in. It's almost a pain in the a__ because she wants to go every time she hears he RZR start. It's kinda fun to ride with her but she is so big now that it is a bit uncomfortable for either my wife or I because she takes up so much room. We are in Phoenix so it is not as bad when it's cooler outside, but when it is 108 degrees in the summer having, her across your lap is less than ideal.

Awesome pup I have a 2 yr old GS that loves riding in my RZR 800 S, but she is so big that when the wife and I ride, there is just not enough room. We still let her ride with us, she loves it soo much that I really don't have the heart to stop her. It's not too bad when its cool outside, but its 108 degrees now and having her lay across your lap sucks.
