Default Pet Hammocks?

We just bought a new car with leather and I don't want my dogs to tear it up. I'm looking at backseat hammocks on Amazon and really don't know which ones are worth a damn and which one is going to be all ripped up a month later.

The dogs are in our vehicles quite frequently, at least every weekend going to the dog park. And most times they are pretty dirty after that. I want something that's going to protect the backseat and the back of the front seats.

What works for you guys?

I've found that several old towels works best. Good luck.

Thanks but that wouldn't work with my monsters.

This is what I'm leaning towards

The 1 my wife bought for the back seat of her BMW is very similar to that and work great. She puts out 100+ pound boxer and our Boston in the back seat.

My brother has 2 English Mastiffs. He uses old king size sheets/comforters. Comforters for cushion/padding from the seats, and then the sheets on top for easy dirt/hair removal.

We have that and it works great. For safety they also have harnesses and seat belt tire ins. An added bonus is that when you run in for gas or are out of the vehicle they can't go very far. We got hit on the freeway a few months ago and the dogs didn't even wake up. A minivan side swiped us and bounced off the tires and even with Mike jerking the wheel the dogs didn't Bobble around.

Awesome! I sat here flipping back and forth for awhile and said F it and ordered it. It's only 36 bucks, I've spent more on dumber shit. We'll see how it holds up.

Actually we have that one.

The first one ripped at the strap but Amazon sent out a replacement.

We also use harnesses and the straps that hitch them down to the car seat attachment points.

Safe and secure dogs.

I was really hoping to see a traditional style hammock hung in the back seat of a car when I clicked on those links.

What a let down.

If your boxer is 100+ then you have a VERY fat over weight dog...a big healthy boxer is around 70lbs

There is an large breed of lab that is around 100lb. My parents have a 107lb lab that is within healthy weight. I think "American" labs are bigger than "English" labs... something like that, I don't feel like googling.

I've looked into hammocks myself, and would love to have one... the headrests in my back seat can't be used as an attachment point, so I would have to use the car seat attachment points.

I haven't seen a hammock meant to connect to the child seat attachment points, so I haven't bought one. I could hack something together, but I would rather prefer not to.

So, if someone finds a hammock that connects to those attachment points, or some hardware that makes it easy to, I'm certainly interested.

There was a 100+lb boxer around the block from me and it was not fat, just huge. My two have been around 75-85 full grown.
