I feel the Berlingo is excellent if you get a diesel one.
I would look at the Van based MPVs
Bongo ( these are the same size foot print as an estate car so easy to park etc)
VW T4
Nissan do a very good one too
Hire one and see if it fits the bill

Like this?

They don't cost much and your dogs can travel in air conditioned safety and comfort. Especially of you do a lot of competing and travelling.

An estate car and a proper dog trailer for that many dogs? confused

nowhere to put the buggy in a normal estate and could do with 2 up 2 down fitted cages in the back. so many a berlingo type car, but ideally a bit bigger? is anything a bit bigger? but can they tow?

Old Volvo 850 estate? The ultimate reliable banger according to Autocar.

hi, sorry, the children are 5, 3, and 8 months and have about £5k to spend so second hand! Thinking maybe berlingo is everyone will fit! Think need the back to be big enough to be caged for the dogs!
thank you smile

Can you give us an idea of how old your children are, fairimum, plus your budget and whether you're planning to buy a new car or a used one? That might help get the cogs whirring …

we do flyball with our dogs so need something with a large boot and able to tow, looking possibly at the berlingos etc... any thoughts?
