Many of us think of our dog as family and there’s nothing like traveling with your tail-wagger to make a road trip all the more fun. But if you are not too crazy about having your car full of pet hair and mud (wet dog anyone?), you will probably find our best dog car seat covers list a great way to do a little research before you buy that cover. With everything you need to know (watch our YouTube videos), our list features the top-rated seat covers that will keep your car clean and dry.
1. BarksBar Pet Front Seat Cover
This machine washable seat cover is designed for people who prefer to have their best friend ride shotgun. Easy to clean and install, it’s made of heavy-duty polyester and colorfast material that prevents color bleeding. Note: As dog lovers, we should point out that if your car has a passenger-side airbag, it’s probably best to keep your four-legged buddy in the rear seat—just like children under 13 should sit in the back seat. While a great safety asset for adults, airbags can wreak havoc on children and dogs.
2. BarksBar Original Pet Back Seat Cover
Like the other dog back seat car covers found in this post, the BarksBar Original Pet Back Seat Cover converts into a hammock. It’s made of high-quality heavy-duty waterproof material and measures 54 x 58 inches (the Extra Large version measures 60 x 64 inches), and includes built-in Velcro openings for seatbelts and seat anchors to stop the cover from sliding around. If you want to keep your back seat clean and dry, this cover is definitely worth the money.
3. BarksBar Luxury Pet Back Seat Cover
This is simply a more luxurious version of the BarksBar Original Pet Seat Cover. By “more luxurious” we mean a plusher quilted look. Other than that, the two back seat covers are identical. Both provide an exceptional combination of protection, waterproofing, and durability.
4. URPOWER Pet Front Seat Cover
There are many reasons why this cover works well in protecting your front car seat from water spills, muds, stains, and pet hair. Because it comes in a universal size, it can suit most front car seats.
5. URPOWER Pet Back Seat Cover
This is a sturdy seat cover you can count on. It features heavy-duty materials with 4 different layers of fabric (cotton, Oxford fabric, polyester, and PVC soft rubber), but it runs a bit large on small cars.
5. 4Knines Pet Front Seat Cover
Muddy paws, flying fur, and claw marks are no match for this 4Knines luxurious front seat cover.
6. 4Knines Pet Back Seat Cover
This $59.99 car seat proves 4Knines’ reputation of making the best car seats is well deserved. It costs a bit more than similar BarksBar and URPOWER back seat covers, but fans swear by its durability and ease of use.
7. Gorilla Grip Pet Front Seat Cover
Unlike some other models, the seatbelt openings of this front seat cover are Velcro. That said, Gorilla Grip provides excellent seat protection for a price that’s difficult to match—just don’t expect the luxurious look of a BarksBar.
8. Gorilla Grip Pet Back Seat Cover
A great back seat cover in its price range.
9. Plush Paws Pet Front Seat Cover
This Plush Paws Pet Front Seat Cover is loaded with features—like seat anchors, side flaps, adjustable straps, and more. Don’t worry if you never owned a seat cover before, this one was designed to be easy to install and easy to use.
10. Plush Paws Luxury Pet Back Seat Cover
This durable and waterproof back seat cover is available in three colors and two sizes. Regular measures 58 x 55 inches and extra-large measures 65 x 63 inches. Like 4Knives covers, its price is eye-wateringly high compared to the more affordable BarksBar Original and URPOWER back seat covers. But if you’re willing to dish out the cash then this durable and waterproof cover deserves a look.
