Dog proof rear seat covers
Hi, can anyone recommend some good, strong, well fitting rear seat covers for my 2014 Civic?
A couple of months ago I inherited an 18 month old boxer dog. Although I hadn't been looking for a dog and wasn't expecting it, but I love taking her to the beach for long walks. It keeps us both fit and active. The safest way to carry her seems to be to attach her walking harness to the rear seatbelt. I have a special loop for the purpose and she gets to sit and be comforted by my wife. She doesn't like travelling in the boot, even with the parcel shelf removed, so she can see out.
The trouble is that she molts tan coloured dog hairs all the time and my rear seats are covered! Worse, the hairs seem to embed themselves into the black seat fabric (I don't have leather seats). It takes me hours of work with several lint rollers to get the car clean and fit for passengers!
I bought some seat covers on ebay, but they are useless! They are a generic set for a variety of cars and only seem to fit where they touch. They are difficult to attach and prevent me from using the split rear seats when in place.
What I'm looking for is a set of seat covers that are made of fabric (so the dog doesn't slide on them) with a waterproof backing, that fit to the individual rear seats and allow me to still access all 3 rear seat belts. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Thanks in advance
