Honda CRV. I have a big dog (and sometimes a friend's dog in there too) and kids. Even manage to fit all four of us and the dog and full camping gear including massive tent when we add a roof box.

Hyundai i30 estate. Boot sectioned. Labrador fits in comfortably and spare boosters in the other section

Old style Renault megane (the one with the arse) fits two labs in the boot comfortably without the parcel shelf.

Land Rover freelander. Next car will be a land rover discovery though as we could use the extra space (expanding family).

C-max, good size dog boot (I have a rottie) fairly nice to drive, cheap to run...and fits in a normal parking space.

I have 3 kids and I can fit a husky in my boot if I take the parcel shelf out. I have a ford mondeo.

Seat Alhambra ( same as VW Sharan). Amazing boot big enough for large dog crate and a boot full of luggage and can convert to 7 seater for ferrying kids around.

Scenic and Grand Scenic for 2 collies.

BMW 5 series estate for Lab and Golden Retriever. Before this I've had Mondeo Estate, Honda CRV. all good boot spaces.

Same as Prosecco, have a Freelander but want a Discovery. Have a big lab boy and am planning to have another and he barely has room to turn round in the Freelander.

I've got a Ford Galaxy and 2 labs. I've also had a mondeo estate which I LOVED.

Honda CRV - fit our three Labradors in easily, plus the DDs, me and DH plus the ramp that our old girl needed to get up in to the boot!

Audi A4 estate,fits wet,mucky large Lab & a bulldog in the boot area,freeing up the back for the Dc.
We go through quite a few of those protective boot covers,they keep a lot of the hair & grime off.
