The K9 Moto Cockpit Build Guide provides 35 pages of materials, measurements, diagrams, photos, and descriptions to build your own motorcycle dog carrier.

The K9 Moto Cockpit is the motorcycle dog crate for riding safely with your medium or large dog.

The Cockpit design keeps your dog’s weight low, secure, and connected to the motorcycle.

The unique design of this motorcycle dog crate avoids strain on the chassis and reduces the effect on your ride performance.

The Build Guide is not an assembly kit and the user should possess the necessary tools, skills, and materials.

As an alternative to building your own, check out the custom K9 Moto Cockpit where we build it for you, with your choice of upholstery, to mount to your specific motorcycle. Also, don’t forget to pick up a K9 Moto Harness for securing your dog in their Cockpit.

Note: please read our Disclaimer and Agreement before you purchase.


We want to help dog-loving motorcyclists to ride safely with their large or medium dog in a way that looks great and enhances the thrill of the ride.

We created the K9 Moto Cockpit Build Guide for informational purposes so that individuals with the skills, time, and resources can create their own Cockpit for riding with their dog.

The Build Guide is not part of an assembly kit and does not include the tools or materials to create a Cockpit. The user is responsible to purchase or obtain the various materials described in the Build Guide and use them appropriate to create the Cockpit.

We produced this Build Guide in order to provide as much information and support as possible to those interested in bringing their pup on motorcycle rides or travels.

If you do not have the time or wherewithal to build your own Cockpit, we will custom build your K9 Moto Cockpit for your dog and to mount to your specific motorcycle, trike, or e-bike.

Please read the Disclaimer and the Cockpit Build Guide Agreement before purchase.
