What dog beds do you have in the car boot?

I have always kept my dogs in the boot when we travel and currently have a memory foam rectangular thick bed as my previous dog had arthritis. My new dog is a rescue and has some issues, bless her, one of which was anxiety in the car although we seem to be improving a lot with that. She does however throw up sometimes especially if we travel for 30 mins or more. I am wondering if it's because she gets 'thrown around' the boot a bit and it makes her sick.

I am doing some research online to see what type of beds you can use but they all seem to be very thin and uncomfortable looking. What do you guys use for yours?

N:B I have 2 dogs - medium lurcher size so can't have anything small.

I have the same bed as Sleepismysuperpower. The Kosipet ones come with spare covers and have a waterproof inner so can be wipe cleaned.
Underneath, we have boot liners in both cars which have a rubber inner so the bed and dogs don't slide around.

My lurchers seem happy in their thick bed and fleecy blankets

I use extra thick vetbed which is washable, that goes on top of a plastic boot liner.

We just use a normal dog bed, like this:

Doesn't seem to slip around.

Thanks All, really really helpful. I am leaning towards the kosipet, we deffo need waterproof as we do a lot of walks using the car so that sounds perfect.

We do have a boot liner underneath so the bed doesn’t move around but I was worried the dogs didn’t feel ‘safe’ and ‘cosy’ on the memory foam.

Thanks again x

Orvis do some lovely ones. I favour the ones with sides in the car so they have something to lean against in the turns
