Things to consider when purchasing a Dog Seat Cover for your car, SUV or truck

By Maggie. | Traveling with Dogs
2 Dog Seat Cover If your pet loves to go on car rides, a great car seat cover is a must. There a many different seat covers on the market that range in price from $10 to over $100. Given all the options there a several things you should consider before purchasing your pet car seat cover.
  1. How often will you be using it.This is an important consideration because the more often you use the cover the more durable it will need to be.
  2. The type of material.
Is it one layer? Is it padded? Many times the covers on the market are a single layer. This is fine if you have a smaller dog but if you have a big dog with strong nails you are going to want something with padding to help protect the seat from claw marks. How strong is the material? A common material used today is microfiber, which feels nice but often is not very strong and can rip or tear easily. Look for a heavy duty material like 600D polyester which is almost canvas-like and will be very durable. 3.  Standard configuration or hammock configuration. Standard Some covers are a standard configuration only, which is nice if you like to keep the cover in all the time. Standard models are easier when people need to ride in the back. Hammock This version has straps that connect to the front seat head rests and help keep your dog in place while in the car. This is a great feature if you have a pet that like to move around a lot and tries to get up to the front seat. Both/ Hybrid The best of both. Some covers have an extra flap which hangs down onto the floor with straps. This flap can be left unattached in a standard configuration or can be fitted over the front headrests to make it into a hammock. 4.  Seat Belt Openings. This is a very important feature. Some states are starting to fine owners who are caught with         their pet riding in their lap and are encouraging owners to harness their dogs while riding in the car. Therefore, you need the ability to get to the seat belt attachments. Some covers have permanent holes while others have Velcro or zippered holes to prevent dirt from getting behind the cover when you are not using the seat belt connector. 5.   Size. Make sure you check the manufacturer's website or packaging for measurements to ensure the cover will fit well in your vehicle 6.   Color. A personal preference based on your car's interior or how dirty you think your pet could make it. 7.   Price. Decide which features will benefit you the most and shop for the best deal. 8.   Manufacturer. Are they reputable? Do they have good reviews? Do they offer a guarantee? The 4Knines Car Seat Cover is made of quilted, durable, waterproof material that is made to last.  It has reinforced headrest straps, a nonslip backing and seat anchors to keep it in place.  It can be used as a hammock or a regular seat cover.  The velcro seat belt openings allow easy access to the seat belts.  4Knines Car Seat Covers also come with a Lifetime Warranty.

Great Protection

I think this seat cover is going to work out just fine. It fits well, was extremely easy to install. Just waiting for my new puppy to be old enough to bring home.

Seat cover just received

It would be nice to be able to actually get some use out of it before I can honestly review the product. I will say that so far my experience with 4Knines has been wonderful. Their customer service is great.

If you have dogs, and love your car, this is a must buy!

I recently purchased the Cargo Cover to protect my new Subaru Outback. My dogs love car rides, but they're also shedding dogs and make a mess. The Cargo Cover took a brief 30 seconds to install and provides protection against dirt, scratches, hair, dander. It's super easy to clean-up too!

Great Product!

XL cargo liner fit my GMC Yukon Denali perfectly. While our 20 lb dog doesn't put much stress on the liner, it works great keeping the back clean from carrying our often muddy recumbent bicycles around. Top notch product, fast delivery. Thanks!

Great products. We are return customers.

Bought the bench cover and side panels for our Nissan Pathfinder. Looks great. We have the same set up in our Titan truck and couldn't be happier with the protection it gives to our leather interior. Highly recommend. Shipping was super fast!!!

Well Done!

Bought the seat cover for a rental SUV we were using on a road trip. It worked great. Kept off all the dog hair and our fur baby rolled around on it like crazy. Am going to move it to our everyday SUV. Nicely done!
