Pet seat covers for your car

I hate to read that pet seat covers for your car are necessary to protect your car from our dirty paws, slobbers and little accidents! It’s shouldn’t be all about you and your car and you must think about the comfort and protection of a dog as well. We are more important than a few scratches on a car door or seat!

Sure, it makes good sense to protect your car but there is such a huge range of dog seat covers, just make sure that you get something that’s good for us as well as protecting your car.

This review and guide of dog car seat covers should help you make the right choices.

Dog car seat covers – Types

If we don’t have to share the back seat with some human pups, the very best and first on the list must be a Dog Hammock car seat cover. Even if you have a human pup to go in the back, these also come in half sizes, so you leave half the seat free for a human.

Dog car seat covers – Hammock Style

If we show you a picture and describe the URPOWER Dog Seat Cover Car Seat Cover for Pets 100% Waterproof Pet Seat Cover Hammock 600D Heavy Duty Scratch Proof Nonslip Durable Soft Pet Back Seat Covers for Cars Trucks and SUVs, you’ll get the idea. These hang between the front and back seats making a comfortable hammock for us to lie in. This one also has side flaps to protect the car door upholstery.

The URPOWER dog seat cover is our #1 recommendation

Hammock style is so comfortable!

The hammock style is very comfortable for travel, it gives us extra protection in case of a crash, they stop us falling into the foot well and they stop us jumping into the front!

The URPOWER Dog Seat Cover hammock has: –

  • Side flaps so it’s easy to get in and out.  easier for your dog to get in or out of car
  • side flaps to protect the car door from scratches and dirt. hair. Available for most
  • fits most cars, trucks and SUVs
  • 100% waterproof and wearproof made from heavy-duty oxford fabric and comfortable PP cotton mat.  
  • It covers the whole back seat, so maybe not excellent if you have human pups
  • And its nonslip & SAFE –  

It has built-in nonslip backing and seat anchors, so it doesn’t slide around and it’s easy to install and clean. 

Half Dog car seat cover – hammock style

Ok, so the only reason you don’t buy the Urpower full dog seat hammock is because you need to use half the back seat for something else? Well here’s the answer for you.

One Size Fits All is a five-star product which looks after us and your precious car.

 The Half Back Seat Hammock Pet Seat Cover is a “floppy ears design” half hammock which means we can share the back seat with a human or groceries or anything else. (I like it when the groceries are left on the back seat beside me).

The Half Hammock will protect your car or SUV from all the nasties like dirt, water, fur and mud. It is reversible and splits the back seat in two parts. This dog car hammock has adjustable straps to attach to the back seat and front seat head restraint posts, so it does all the stuff of the full hammock. It’s made of water-resistant Microfiber and its very tough. Also, it’s easy-care machine wash and dry. It fits most vehicles and most importantly for us, it’s comfortable. Highly recommended.

Pet seat covers for your car – Bench car seat covers

Bench car seat covers will cover the whole back seat. These come in various sizes so it’s best to measure your vehicle to make sure the cover you buy is a good fit. Just make sure it’s comfortable for us dogs and I know you are more interested in keeping your back seats free of wet paws, dirt, hair mud and slobbers.

Most bench seat covers have openings for the seat belts so make sure what you buy has this feature

Dog seat covers – bench seat recommendation (1)

The cover we recommend is the 4Knines Dog Seat Cover for Cars, SUVs, and Small Trucks. It’s Heavy Duty, Non Slip and Waterproof. We recommend it because its comfortable for us dogs, but it looks cool on the back seat of your car and I know you usually care about that! It comes in black, grey and tan (which is quite light/white almost) and will fit most vehicles apart from over-size SUV’s and large trucks.

It looks good and is comfortable with a non-slip, quilt finish:-

Pet Seat Covers for car front seats

Please think, why do you want these? If you have a back seat in your vehicle, please move on and don’t read any more here. You don’t need one because we dog will be in the back away from exploding air bags and away from annoying our human chauffeur.

We only mention them because there sometimes is no back seat in a truck. They can also be good for bucket seats in the back of a car. These are usually fitted quite like an ordinary car seat cover but much better waterproof material for easy cleaning.

Premium Extra Thick Quilted Full Protection Front Seat Protector, Side Flaps, Waterproof, Durable, Nonslip Design, Free Bonus– Pet Seat Belt & Headrest Protector.

  • There are just 3 straps to secure and its very easily installed. 
  • Cleaning is also easy as it can be wiped down and its machine washable.
Meadowlark has a recommendation above for back seat covers. The front seat cover is also very good - But why do you want one? We should be in the back!

Dog seat covers - Cargo Covers/Boot or trunk Liners

These are good because they can be quite comfortable to lie on and they make us dogs feel more secure jumping into the back of your SUV or station wagon to a cosy area. As a second advantage, they protect your floor area from mud and dirt and are easily taken out and cleaned. It’s best to get one with raised sides to protect us and your car all round. They just lie flat in the back area and can have bumper guards to go over the bumper. This helps to stop scratches when we jump in and out.

This has all the features you should look for. It’s very comfortable, offers us some extra padded protection in case of an accident and it gives your vehicle full inside and bumper protection.

NAC&ZAC Waterproof SUV Cargo Liner, Pet Seat Cover with Extra Bumper Flap, Machine Washable Dog Cargo Cover

The NACZAC is also an excellent quality cargo liner with a lifetime warranty at a lower price. We’ve got it as the second choice only because it doesn’t have as good side protection. It scores more in the fact that the large sized cover can protect the entire cargo area, even when the back seat is folded down.

  • Waterproof and non-slip  
  • Easy to install and machine washable
  • It got the extra bumper flap to protect us going in and out (and your bumper!)

Car door guards

We know that dogs like to put their paws up and scratch your doors sometimes and this can leave marks and scratches on your vehicle. These car door protectors are specially made to protect your doors from the bottom of the side windows down to the seats. If you buy one, don’t use it as an excuse for letting us put our heads and paws out the side window! Just a small stone in the eye can see us blinded and we’ll be dead if anything bigger hits us or you are involved in an accident!

Pet car seat covers for your car – Summary

We’ve explained to you the types of car seat covers available for protecting your dog from the dirt in your car. (or is that protect your car from a dirty dog?)

Our Number 1 recommendation by far is the hammock dog seat cover.

Back seat covers can very very good too if you don’t like the idea of a hammock

Front seat covers should not be necessary for most of you as we dogs should not be sitting in the front unless it’s absolutely necessary – (it is against the law in some places, so check!).

Cargo dog covers for the back of station wagons and SUV’s can be great but it’s NOT the only protection we need – these are to protect your car, not us dogs, so make sure we are still secured firmly in case of accident.

Car door covers don’t do us dogs much good but they are very good at protecting your doors from dirt and slobbers.

The right equipment can make car journeys so much more safe and fun for all the family pack so have a good look and be prepared!

Interested in a dog Crate?

Dog Crates and dog crate training

Jerry looks at Dog creates and dog crate training. The big question is why would you ever want to buy a dog crate?

Dog crates for household use are BANNED in some countries. There is a place for dog crates if we must fly long distances or if we are injured and we need to be kept in a confined area to recover.

Crates are particularly popular in the USA and many dog trainers think they are a good training aid. We DO NOT know of any dog that has been better trained with the use of a crate than the many millions who are trained to incredibly high standards WITHOUT using a crate.

Using a crate ‘properly’ (if there is such a thing) is a long process that requires a lot of time and patience, even if you like the idea we’d have to ask – why bother?

Dog crates are essential for some forms of travel so you may have little choice but to train a dog to a crate for travel purposes.
