Focuspet Dog Car Seat Cover
The Focuspet brand has a broad range of offerings to suit car-bound animals, and their car seat cover is simple but effective as well as good value. It sticks to the familiar 600 denier Oxford cloth with a PVC backing to help keep it in place.
It also allows both a simple seat cover position or hammock-style arrangement, as well as gaps for the rear seatbelts to be used - always a sensible idea whatever size of dog.
ZOTO Dog Seat Cover
Scoring a healthy 4.6 stars out of 5 from Amazon customer reviews, this Zoto car seat cover offers a more luxurious look and feel thanks to its generous specification.
The top layer sticks with the 600 denier Oxford cloth, but with a cotton inner and an Oxford cloth non-slip base, it is thicker than most — while the quilted design will look more in step with the typical car cabin.
Ondoing Dog Car Seat Cover
If you’re looking for a more secure area for your dog to travel in then this seat cover from Ondoing may be better suited to your needs. Unlike many other offerings, it is more enclosed, with two tall side panels that will protect the rear door trims from your pup and discourage them from trying to get out of the back seats.
It also comes in a choice of four colours to match your car cabin (or your dog’s coat) and is finished in the favoured Oxford cloth for durability.
