I have 2 dogs a Saint Bernard and a Bull-Mastiff Lab mutt. We drive to Northern MI from Detroit every other weekend or so. Last vehicle was a leased mini van that we let go to hell (interior wise). We bought this jeep, I'm not letting these dogs ruin this one. Well 3800 miles and a few trips with the dogs it still has that new car smell, and you couldn't tell there were dogs in there.... but prepping the this is a royal pain in the @ss, thought I would share.

You can kind of see the blanket on the seat. I just lay it down and tuck it in.

That first pic reminds me of one of those Rent-A-Center couches that people leave the plastic on.

I guess it depends on your dog. I just put a Mopar cargo mat in the back and a slush mat over the back of the folded-down right splitter, and my 90-pound black lab has a place to lie down and a spot to stand with his head out the window. He stays off the leather, knows better.

nice.............I just picked this up for our dog. We are going to be driving to Florida from Mass. next week. I think she'll be comfy and it will keep the seat clean.

Only $30.00 on Amazon....Car Seat Cover For Pets Gray - Pet Seat Car Covers - Pet Accessory


Lola................

Thanks for this!! I just ordered one. I have a Lab who sheds like crazy so I've been avoding letting him ride in my new Jeep.

Previously I was using a hammock style cover which didn't do a good of job as I wanted...so I upgraded to a half dozen or so 'Transformers', 'Toy Story', and 'Cars' fleece blankets which I picked up from Walmart to line the back seat area.

I use a large "dog tent" from the italian company Dogbag. Keeps my 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks in the back of my WK1 without giving them any chance to chew on anything. It also allows me to open the trunk without them jumping out.

The dogbag products are mostly available in Europe and are not exactly given, but to me they are the perfect compromise between a solid cage (heavy, cumbersome and expensive) and a simple cushion or blanket (not enough protection for my truck). Also, my local laws require that dogs be contained when driving. A 90lb dog licking the driver's ear at highway speeds is never safe...;-). In case of a head-on accident it would also avoid my dogs becoming projectiles aimed at the back of my neck (the "tent" has clips to secure it to factory tether points in the rear of my truck).

This is one US online retailer I could find by googling for 5 minutes:

There are probably others. The same company also makes blankets and tube-like "tents" designed to fit on the rear seats.

Looks like a Dexter trunk!

I know what you mean about the dog hair. Selling my Jk Rubicon that my German Shepard had the run of in the back. Spent about 6 hours cleaning hair and its still not all out. Dog hair and automotive carpet is HELL! If I did it all over again, I would have removed the carpet back there. Looking for some maximum protection for my JGC.
