Hi

I have a Rottweiler who goes in the back when travelling. She doesn't like the boot as it is too small for her so i fold up the back seats and she sits/lies in the space created.

The problem i have is that she is often muddy when i put her back in the car and i was wondering if there is a [preferably waterproof] cover which perhaps hooks over the headrests of the front seats and the rear seats leaving a "U" shape between the two for her to sit in.

I can't put her on the rear seats while they are in the usual position as she then dribbles all over the windows/door and i would prefer not to keep her in the boot with the seats folded flat as, again, she dribbles everywhere and struggles to jump into the boot anyway.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

I haven't seen a Honda item that does this, but there might be an aftermarket item somewhere that could help.

The problem I have found when doing exactly the same thing with a borrowed Rottweiler is that the inside of my windows sometimes need cleaning afterwards....

I put my greyhound in the back and she loves it - Just curls up and goes to sleep.

We use a duvet and place it around the rear seats (as sometimes she drools over the back seat.

It holds itself in place just in friction.

You could put a tarp inside a duvet to make it water resistant? or over the top if mud is an issue.

Got mine from Tesco, was about £6 each, buy the bottom and back cover seperate, just had to cut a couple of holes for the seatbelt, made of thick nylon type stuff and black in colour.

i got one from pets at home but i don't think it would fit if you were to have the rear seats folded up. My golden retriever hates the back but loves the boot.

We tried a purchased plastic cover for the rear seats and backs and gave it the elbow by replacing it with a duvet, covered with a woollen blanket.
They soak up the water and mud, where as the plastic just lets it go everywhere.

Many thanks. I have emailed the different companies suggested by Relic to ask if they do one which would reach the floor; you never know, maybe they will start!

Otherwise, i think i will use the duvet idea.

Thank you.

Take a trip to Ikea - they sell largish 'picnic' blankets, that have a waterproof layer on the back - also get a couple of their normal blankets, to ensure that any mud and crud gets absorbed ...
