Rear seat protection for dog

Postby markdevon » Wed Feb 22, 2017 4:50 pm

Hi All,

I'm picking up my Mustang in April and on my commute I have to bring my dog, a lab.

So my intention is to stick him on the rear seats but obviously I need some sort of seat protectors and would prefer ones that are a good fit. Does anyone know of any? I have the light leather interior (yup I know dog + light leather = disaster!) so prefer not to have black covers.

Links would be great.

Many thanks
Mark

I can't say I've come across anything to fit the bill in all the time I've been drooling over parts online.

Sounds like you might need to get something custom made unfortunately. Fingers crossed and hope I'm wrong

I bought my Convertible with the express intention of carrying my two Irish Setters in the back....

The rear seat cushion comes out very easily - see this video from around 1 minute 55 secs in.

Although the weather has so far discouraged me from getting round to it, I'm going to fabricate a wooden shelf covered in carpeting to replace the cushion and drape covers over the front seat backs and the rear squabs to control the slobber. If I need the rear seats for human transport it'll be easy enough to remove the plank and replace the cushion.

Blimey, I'd never noticed the resemblance before... but that's cruel. :axe

Thanks all,

antijam that idea is a possibility if I can think of a quick solution without causing any damage.

Cheers

IKEA rugs/blankets, wash or replace on a regular basis.

Well I finally got round to it - see here.
