147 and dogs in the boot

Hello all.

I'm a 147 wannabee-owner, but my only doubts are fitting our furry friends in the boot. I currently have a 207 SW which they comfortably get ferried about in, but I yearn to swap it for a 147.....

Are there any 147 driving dog owners out there who can reassure me that their mutts of many sizes fit ok in the back?

This is make or break time folks, thanks for your help!

I can assure you dogs fit great in a 147.
We have a 147 2003. We fit our 2 full size collies in the boot easy most days, plus a doberman this weekend haha.
As long as your dog can jump in as the boot lip is abit high.
Cheers Dave

We've got a Lab-cross and she fits in the back fine,
In fact the car is only really used to take her out for a walk,
As i ride a motorbike all year round, except when there's snow & ice on the ground

The boot lip is a bit high, but there is plenty of room once she's in!

Or beagle fits fine. Am also considering getting a boot create so we can put luggage/shopping in there too. And keep the dog hair out of the boot carpet. Just remember to remove the parcel shelf!

Think about the future on this one as well. Many breeds get joint, hip or leg trouble later in life. Worse, a greater than average jump can injure them (speaking from experience here)
