I don’t intend to highjack this thread, and if needed, (moderator) please split this off.

How do most people bring their dog with them in the cart with two people already in the cart? The upgraded (bucket) seats seem to have center arm rests. Where does the puppy ride?

(I am NOT talking about golfing or to the grocery story (Who REALLY does that!?!?!). I was thinking when we bring the little guy (27# labradoodle) to the dog park, etc.

Thanks and again, PLEASE DON’T LET ME SIDELINE THIS GOOD TOPIC!

That is actually a very good question. We have upgraded seats in both of our golf carts, and both are dog friendly so our boarder collie can sit in the middle between us. There are several options of seats available, mostly bucket seats, but also some very comfortable bench style seats. There are also bucket seats for the back rest, with a bench style for the actual seat. Both options work for the dogs and are way more comfortable than OEM seats. Our bench style seat from Ultimate golf cart seats is my favorite. Our bucket seat back, with a bench sitting area, from El Tigre is also good, but the bucket seat back does not seem to be a great fit for my back (too narrow). It is still way more comfortable than the OEM seat, just not ideal.

Neither dog friendly seat is as comfortable as our friends new cart with true bucket seats, but our dog would not ride comfortably in that cart. I would rather have a really good seat than a perfect seat, with our little girl's head resting on my leg while I drive the cart : )

They even tighten up when you take a deep breath. Your stomach draws in and so does the belt. I replaced mine with adjustable.

When I ordered my cart I had the dealer install rear speakers With Bluetooth. You can get a free subscription to Spotify If you're willing to put up with a few ads, Or you can subscribe for 10 bucks a month which is 50% cheaper than Sirius.

We got a UE Boom2 bluetooth speaker that is shaped to fit into a cup holder that sounds great. I mounted a cup holder for the speaker on the cart frame just below the roof behind the driver and no one can see it unless really looking for it. I also use the Spotify app on my phone as a music source and love it. Also, there is no real need to install a USB port for charging devices, just keep a portable back-up power cell handy if a quick charge is needed.
