Many months ago, before we even brought Pyrrha home, I won a Kurgo back-seat car cover in a giveaway from Go Pet Friendly. Since then, I’ve considered myself a fan of Kurgo products. The car cover is sturdy, waterproof, and durable, and it’s been perfect for the back seat of our car and our extremely hairy German shepherd for more than a year now.
This back-seat barrier prevents your dog from clambering up into the front of the car, which could easily endanger themselves and certainly you as the driver. We have never had a product like this, because Pyrrha is very mannerly in the car.
We took her polite behavior for granted, however, because we’ve certainly transported dogs — including some of our boisterous foster dogs — who were WILD in the car (looking at you, Brando baby), and a barrier like this would have been very helpful.
I like how sturdy this product is; it has parallel weights running through the fabric, which make it feel very strong. A large dog — no matter how determined — would not be able to get through this barrier. As with other Kurgo products I’ve used and tested, this barrier is also well made. In short, a quality product! It sells for $45.95 at Dog Fence DIY.
The barrier was a bit broad for our small hatchback, but it will still do the job. And although we probably won’t use it on a regular basis for polite Pyrrha, I am glad to have this barrier for future fosters and possibly even our future second pup!
Do you use any kind of restraint or barrier in your car for transporting your dog?
