One of the members on here travelled with two Great Danes and a significant other on the truck.

Can't team drive once you have a dog in the truck with you. I know everyone thinks their dog is the smartest in the world, but I am pretty sure there are regulations barring it. You could make a killing by only having to pay your co-driver in dog biscuits.

Do you know what you are talking about? No you don't. So stop spewing erroneous info. There is no federal law about having a dog on a team truck. Some companies may have some rules about it, but generally companies let their team drivers hash it out to have a dog or not.

When I first started out, I drove team and considered getting a dog. My co-driver was all for it and the company didn't care. I just would have had to pay the deposit, not my co-driver.

I saw a YouTube video of a husband and wife team who traveled with 3 dogs. Both drivers were extremely obese and I wondered how they manage not to overload the steer axle. Seriously, each driver must have exceeded 400 lbs.

The Great Dane in my photos was only one year old. The driver said that the dog could get in and out of the truck on it’s own, which is fine. The problem comes when the dog gets too old to accomplish that feat. Hence, most drivers get smaller dogs.

Laura, it was a joke. Meaning can't make your dog your co-driver. I made that joke because of the photo of the dog sitting at the steering wheel.
