5 Best Dog Car Seat Protectors

1- Waterproof Hammock
Waterproof is the way to go! After a good romp at the doggie park, or a long hike in the woods, you are going to want a waterproof car seat cover for him to lay on. The hammock design is also great because it will catch all the dried dirt and other stuff he takes with him. Let him jump out when you get home, and you can just take it out and shake it off, or brush it out with a mini broom. Then you are ready for the next time. Check this one out on Amazon.
2- Non-slip with extra sides
This is a step above the simple hammock. This particular one I found is non-slip, and has extra material down the sides, so it covers your seat completely. As dog owners, we know all too well, how those pesky dog hairs can seem to find their way into places, this design tries to keep them at bay as much as possible. It’s design is a little different from the typical hammock, as it goes down to the floor and then up the backs of the seats. Check it out for yourself here.
3- Bucket seat cover
I know my pit prefers to sit in the front (even if someone is sitting there), this would be perfect for her! This seat cover by Pettom is non-slip and has some extra fabric down the sides and front to cover the seat completely and doesn’t just sit on top. They also carry covers for the back seat and also a door cover that hangs over the inside of the door, but still allows you put the window up and down. Check out all your car seat cover options here.
4- Waterproof bucket seat covers
You get 2 in your order! These completely cover your seat. They are easy to install and fit most bucket seats. They have a non-slip bottom on the inside, so even though they cover your seat completely, the material won’t slide around and have your dog holding on for dear life. If you are in search of a couple of bucket seat covers that have full coverage, check out these.
5- Best quality
I love this complete coverage back seat cover! It is not a hammock design, but it does come down over the edges of the bench seat, so all the material is protected. There are velcro openings for the seat belts so you can still have access and not feel the need to remove it every time you need to use the back seat for a child. Which brings me to how great of a seat cover this is if you have kids! I am pretty sure I am going to be ordering one myself before my kids destroy the back seat! You can get a good deal on Amazon here.
There are so many pet car seat covers to choose from it really comes down to what your needs are. Whatever your needs are, know that you are taking the right step in protecting the seats in your car! I have found that most are waterproof and are easily wipes clean and even machine washable. If only your dirty dog as so easy to clean!
