  • Made in the USA! The Ruff Land™ Backseat Rider™ is a little shorter than our best-selling intermediate kennel so it fits better behind your front seat (and two can fit end-to-end in the back seat of most standard vehicles).

    You asked for it, and Ruff Land™ delivers. Introducing the Ruff Land™ Backseat Rider™, a kennel configured specifically to fit on the floor behind the front seat of your pickup, with the backseat folded up or directly on your backseat. This is the perfect place for a kennel, as it allows your dog to ride inside when it’s cold outside, when you don’t want your dog subjected to frigid temps and windchills, or when you’re driving on dirt roads or in rainy weather. Like all Ruff Land™ Kennels, the Backseat Rider™ is built tough, built safe and built smart.

    Due to the fact that Ruff Land Performance Kennels does not have personal knowledge of your pet we prefer not to recommend sizes of kennels. We feel consulting with your breeder, trainer or vet would give you the best results for sizing. Thank you for your understanding.





  • Ruff FLEX Technology

    The walls, top and floor on Ruff Land™ Kennels also have built-in flexibility which absorbs energy that would otherwise be transferred to your dog. This is where the “stiff”, two-walled plastic kennels, which claim to be safer, fail. They may not break, but when your dog hits the side of the kennel, there is no give like there is with a Ruff Land™.

  • StackRight™ Design

    The tops and bottoms of Ruff Land™ kennels all feature form-fit nesting that allows the kennels to fit together, making them stackable.

  • SureVent™ Tapered Wall Design

    The sidewalls on all Ruff Land™ kennels feature a series of vent holes. These vent holes ensure proper air circulation for your dog. Ruff Land™ took this one step further by tapering the side walls so that the vent holes will never get plugged, even if you slide the kennel up against a wall or some other flat sided object.

  • UpSide™ Raised Floor Interior

    The interior floor in a Ruff Land™ kennel is raised so that debris and liquids that fall or spill off to the side are channeled away from your dog. This UpSide™ raised floor design also creates some flex for a built-in cushioning effect for your dog as it rides in your truck.

  • 2-Way Door

    They are ambidextrous and can be adjusted to swing either way.

  • No Bite Grid Pattern Design

    Grid pattern stops dogs from chewing/biting kennel door

  • Rattle-Less

    They will not rattle as much (if you’ve owned other kennels you know just how annoying this can be).
