Default Dog cage for V60 PE

My MY2022 V60 PE is coming next week and I need to get a dog cage for the boot. Anyone got one or know what is the biggest cage that will fit?
TIA

The biggest cage would be the whole boot. A ceiling mounted dog guard just behind the back seats would do the trick.

Unless your dogs really like bolting the second the tailgate is lifted of course…

That’s the potential issue…. 2 spaniels…. If they see a squirrel or a bird they’ll be off! Car should be arriving next week so will have to have a measure up

Check out TransK9 boxes ( www.transk9.co.uk) they will have one to fit exactly to the space, plus they are excellent although expensive - you get what you pay for.

The one they do for the XC60 is very good.

They do come up on ebay now & again.
Volvo do a divider plus left & right gates that would do the job ( i had the original set up in my '04 V70) but these days the price is not far off the transk9 boxes which are much better ( prevent wet dog shaking all over interior etc).

Lintran are another company that do boxes - they are GRP not metal but I dont know if they do the range for volvo like transk9. lintran boxes are widely avail on ebay as they often come out of decommissioned police dog vans/cars.
