Car Dog Guards

Stop your dog from trying to reach the front seat with one of our custom-fit car dog guards, designed to keep your dog in the boot of the car ensuring safety of both pet and passengers. Our car dog guards are made from a either a solid metal frame with bars or are covered in solid mesh string to prevent your dog from manoeuvring through the vehicle. What's more! All our car dog guards attach themselves to the headrests of the rear car seats, this means no drilling is required and you can fully protect the interior of your car at the same time. Why not combine a dog guard with a rubber boot liner, and stop your dog digging into the fabric of your car boot floor.

What is the best way to secure a dog in the car?

There are many ways to secure a dog in a car when on the road, our preferred method is by using a car dog guard. Car dog barriers are a secure way of giving your dog its own space in the vehicle whilst protecting passengers & drivers by stopping them climbing through the interior. The gap between the headrests and the ceiling of each car is different, which is why we've got an abundance of dog guards available depending on the make and model of your vehicle. This ensures they can't get through any small gaps when driving.

How do you install car dog guards?

Most dog guards don't require any drilling or damage to a car, it's simply a case of removing the headrests and sliding the dog guard through the metal bars before fixing them in place. The fixings provided allow you to tighten the dog guard to the headrests to prevent the guard from flipping over from an over-excited pooch. If you're struggling to follow the paper instructions for one of dog guards, check out our YouTube video which demonstrates how to fit a dog guard using the parts provided by our supplier ErgoTech.

How do I stop worrying about my dog in the car?

It can be nerve-racking when you first take your dog out in the car, some people like to build up to it by using a doggy seatbelt and attaching this to a harness first while sitting in the rear seats to keep them comfortable. Eventually though you need a permanent solution, which is why having a car dog guard is perfect for securing your pooch when driving. It gives them the space they need in the boot of your car and limits distractions. It's important to regulate the temperature in the car to prevent them over-heating (either lowering windows or turning on the air conditioning when it's hot or turning on the heaters in the winter). You should also stop every 2 hours to let your dog stretch their legs a bit, have a drink of water and an opportunity to do their business.
