It's great to travel with a dog.
And dog car seat covers can make your roadtrip infinitely easier. Maybe you're crisscrossing the nation--like Steinbeck with his poodle in "Travels with Charley." Or the couple in the classic song "Me and You and a Dog Named Boo." There's something joyful about hitting the wide open road with a hound.
Or maybe you're just going to the vet. Or to visit grandma, to the dog park or to one of the many retailers that welcome dogs. Even if your co-pilot doesn't feel the wind in his fur on Route 66 very often, daily life no doubt has him in and out of your car. And there are, of course, practical issues with that as far as your vehicle's seats are concerned. That's why they make doggie car seat covers. Let's look at a few that are both practical for use and comfy for Champ. We think these are the best car seat covers for dogs.
Dog Car Seat Covers
Frisco Quilted Water Resistant Hammock Car Seat Cover
This cover protects your back seat from dog related messes. The hammock style hooks to the headrests of the front seat and the headrests of the back seat, and hangs between the two seats. There are openings for the seatbelts in case a human wants to sit in the back with Rover. It's made of water resistant, quilted Oxford polyester, and is machine washable.
Arf Pets Waterproof and Non-slip SUV Cargo Liner
If you need the front and back seats to transport the family, here's a cover that allows your canine pal to ride in the back compartment of your SUV. The straps go around the back seat headrests, and a non-skid bottom keeps it in place. Three layers of polyurethane protect the compartment from stains and scratches.
Kurgo Dog Car Seat Cover
This item will both shield your car's seat and give your dog a bed for the ride. The straps go over the headrests. The bed is made of suede and polyester. Durable fabric protects the seat from dog messes, while the cushiony bed surface keeps your pup pal comfortable and cozy. Plus, it's machine washable.
Vailge Dog Seat Cover for Back Seat
This one can be set up either as a hammock-style cover or a bench seat cover. There are two waterproof layers of fabric. It includes a mesh window to enhance air circulation and so that you and your fur baby can see each other. There's even a dog seat belt! It's also machine washable.
