It's a box that covers the distance between a Owen's aluminum box and the front of the truck bed (Toyota Tacoma). It only has two holes but I think that is why it worked so well. When the two dogs in the box put their heads out the holes they stay warm from the neck down. When only one dog has it's head out it keeps to much wind from circulating quickly around the box. If you only put two dogs in the box the air can never be cut off too much for a dog inside to run out of air. Even when it's -20 degrees, if two dogs have their heads in the rig holes it's very warm on the inside of the box. Anyhow, this worked very well for rigging during the coldest time of the year and I don't think it would work as well with any more holes than two.
Here's a picture:
If I've explained this correctly, I think it will help some others in cold-country.
