    Best SUV dog barrier-

    Got any suggestions? My setter keeps climbing over the back seat and I'm tired of cleaning muddy paw prints off the leather in addition to vacuuming out the dog hair every trip to the field.

    I use a portion of his kennel cage and some bungee cords when I load my lab in the back of my expedition.

    My wife wanted something a little more professional, so she bought something like this for hers.

    It's nice because you can extend the bar tubes from the side to the shape of your vehicle (keeps the dog from reaching around to pet the kids), but it relies on surface tension to hold it in place and frequently gets knocked over by groceries and such. FWIW, I prefer my solution.

    I wouldn't call it the best, but I've been using this $60 model that I bought from Petco back on '03:

    Precision Pet VehicleBarrier & Extension Bar Available Online from PETCO.com

    I like it because it's easy to setup & remove, it adapts for wider or narrower vehicles, & you can buy an extension section for larger vehicles - We use ours in a RAV4. It rattles a little bit sometimes, but I'm pleased with it overall.

    I guess I should add this; I'm leery of (but not totally against) the one sized fits all ones. I had a dog strangle himself in a poorly designed crate a few years back, so now I'm ultra cautious when buying containment products for my dogs.

    I was looking at this one; Amazon.com: TRAVALL TDG1152 - DOG GUARD / PET BARRIER for JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE (2005-2010): Automotive, but it seems awful spendy.

    Well, yeah... they do. But I want to keep the dog in the cargo area. Its much easier to clean out, especially when he is full of mud and burrs from a day of hunting. Also, I don't think I want to try and put a seat belt harness thingy on a amped up bird dog. If it was some foo foo poodle pooper, maybe.

    What a horrible story... I'm re-thinking my approach now.

    I like what you're looking at. It looks like something I'd see in a police vehicle (wonder where you got that idea ;-). All it's missing is a spit-barrier.

    Of course, you realize that the carpet on the back of the seat is still gonna get all dogged-up.

    LOL, yeah, I know. Being a dog guy, hunter and anal about keeping my vehicles clean isn't always easy. What I do is get a small tarp and tuck it under the head rests. Then, I'll push it into the back of the seats and close as I can, then the rest will flow under the cargo tray. The weight of the dog and shotguns will keep the tarp in place most of the time. That way, I just have to hose out the cargo tray and a quick vacuum job and I'm done cleaning up the car no matter how dirty the dog gets.

    Sorry to hear about the bad crate experience. I don't know that there would be too many custom-fit models that don't cost a pretty penny.

    That is a pretty cool looking barrier. I like how it doesn't contact the headliner and still allows you to fold down the rear seats for extra cargo area without having to remove it.

    Yup, its the best I've found so far. I don't mind spending the money for a good product as this seems to be well designed. I just wanted to see if anyone else had some more experience or another suggestion. Up until recently, I've always just folded down the rear seats and tossed a crate (s) in the back for the dogs. But now, my son is old enough to go along, I need back seat room for him as well.

    Ahh... obviously you've never had a bird dog in the fall. He'd be more likely to take the Jeep on a run than the Jeep take him.

    Sorry about the unfortunate incident with the dog a few years ago.

    The unit you have posted looks like it would work just fine.

    It's 2011 the price does not seem to high if it is quality made.

    I'm thinking the best one would also provide an odor barrier,my lab used to fart so much on the way to the marsh I almost bought a gas mask in a army surplus store
