Taking a dog along with you

And if you ever get a chance could you let me know what the exact model and name of that ramp was?

Taking a dog along with you

I agree with one of the posts above and normally would never considered cramping such a large dog into a small space like that. But she is getting old and if anyone knows much about great danes they are not as active a breed compared to others. With the exception of taking her on a walk she sleeps on the couch all day, age has caught up to her. So in her case I feel she would be happy sleeping on the bed and maybe it forces me to make a stop ever 2 to 3 hours to give her a short walk but hey it wouldn't hurt me to move my legs as well

Having a dog that size you get used to giving up space. I've heard of people saying they have removed the passenger seat and that the company they were with allowed them to do this. I'm looking into Jim Palmer Trucking and wondering if anyone knows if removing the passenger seat is something they would be receptive to? Main issue really is trying to figure out how to get a large dog into the cap. I'm guessing the truck is too high for them to step into and the dog weighs 120 lbs. Any creative ideas would be appreciated

So I've been looking into a company and already know they allow dogs and have no size or weight restrictions. I also pretty much know the answer to this question but figured maybe someone out there knows something and let me know. So I have a very large dog and I'm wanting to know how realistic is it to take a big dog with you in the rig. Yes I know they would take up more room and I'd be fine with that, mostly just wondering if it's even possible. Dog in question is actually a great dane, like I said I'm expecting there is no way this would be even possible but curious if anyone out there has ever seen a dog of that kind of size in someone's rig?

Jim Palmer Trucking based in Montana

I am looking into Jim Palmer Trucking and doing their CDL apprentice program which looks very much like what Prime Inc does. I'm looking into them over Prime because it looks like they do more west coast and I live in the Seattle area. Talked to one of the recruiters today and she told me they do a lot of driving and routes through WA and drop off here as well. Want to know if there is anyone out there that has either worked for Jim Palmer or knows anything about them to give me an idea of if they are telling me the truth about regular routes into and through WA and Seattle or if they are just saying what they need to get me in the door?

Starting out as a new driver

I am currently a Class B driver and will be looking into upgrading to a Class A. I live in the Seattle, Washington area and wanted to ask if anyone knows of what trucking companies have frequent routes into the Seattle, Washington area on a regular basis to make home time easier to manage. Especially does anyone know if any of the companies that pay for your school operate regularly out here, such as prime, Stevens, or anyone other companies? Looking to get as much info as possible.

Thank you
