At The Dog Effect, we love promoting way to get your dog out of house or back yard and go on adventures together.
That may mean hiking or paddle boarding or taking your dog on holidays with you. Depending on where you live, you will undoubtedly need to drive to your destination much of the time.
My dog is a Lakeland Terrier, so he doesn't loose a lot of hair but he does tend to collect a lot of sand when his fur is longer. If you are swimming or running along river banks, your dog will most probably have muddy paws and collect sticks and twigs in his coat. After all that fun, I can also guarantee some quality drool.
I have discovered some great products for keeping all of that sand, sticks, muddy paw prints and drool off your car upholstery and onto a specially designed dog car seat protector.
What to look for in a quality dog car seat protector
When buying gear for your dog I always like to recommend going for quality gear. It will last longer and generally give you better results.
Car seat covers need to be made from a strong material so that your dog's claws don't rip holes in the fabric. Look for strong stitching and attachments.
The dog car seat cover should be durable, weather proof and most importantly I would recommend water proof. Not only to keep your dog's drool from wetting the seat but this will allow you to hose it clean after your trip. If your seat cover is machine washable, all the better.
3. Easy to install
This goes without saying. You don't want to have an engineering degree to put install the car seat protector. Quick and easy installation will ensure you get more time away that sitting in your garage trying to work out up from down.
I like to see companies offer good warranties for their products. If it is a good quality product, the manufacturer should be confident enough to offer you a good warranty.
