How much hair is in your back seat? Here is one solution. A hammock for your dog. This is perfect for taking your dog to the dog park or on a short road trip. It is made out of polyester and is 55 by 59 inches. The two pockets on it are great to store a leash or your favorite grooming brush. Some people noticed a problem with it breaking when their dog climbs into the front seat. If this happens a lot in your car then look at the next item bellow.
Here is what Colin Schroederon said after buying it:
This product may be in my top five favorite purchases on Amazon. First, you can’t beat the price of this cover. Second, the quality is phenomenal and its very durable. Last, it’s so easy to take in and out of the car and fits my 2015 Fors Fusion like a glove! The zipper in the middle works perfectly too. I usually keep the zipper down so the back vents blow air to my dog but if she is too rambunctious I can zip it up and she is confined to the back seat!
If you had concerns about your dog climbing into the front seat and stretching the hammock then this is the seat cover for you. It is waterproof and completely covers the seat. The size of the cover is 56 by 47 inches. You can buy if for less than $19.
