I was given a bench seat cover by Kurgo in exchange for an honest review of their product. This product review has a twist at the end–literally!
There is one thing you can say about Kurgo dog products–they are made very well. The Car Seat Cover has a lifetime warranty, which means Kurgo unconditionally guarantees their product against manufacturing defects for the life of their product.
Out of the box this durable waterproof double-stitched seam canvas bench seat cover looked simple enough to install. It was. I’ll show you how!
This is what it looked like out of the box. This is not a sexy fabric folks. This is a practical fabric. This is canvas and it’s going to look like canvas, but it’s durable, waterproof and easy to clean or scrub. It will protect your seats. It will get the job done!
The seat cover has two black loops on top (to be slipped over the rear bench headrest), an adjustable black strap that adjusts behind the bench seat you are covering to provide a snug fit, and a thin elastic cord under seat attachment. The under seat attachment has a single barrel cord lock that keeps the canvas from slipping off the bottom bench cushion. That’s a good thing. (more…)
I was sent a Tru-Fit Smart Harness for my dog in exchange for an honest review of the product. I have two golden retrievers and a lab golden cross. Two ride nicely in the hatch of my Jeep. One hates the car and is a spazzo. Her name is Skye. She panics, jumps from the hatch to the back seat and then uses her head to burrow behind the driver to hide. If the driver can’t restrain her, she’ll force her way over the console panting, drooling and then climbing into the front passenger seat. I was very excited to try this harness restraint. My life was in danger.
I tried it on Kimber first because she is solid and calm–although she doesn’t look calm here. Trust me, the sun was in her eyes.
Out of the box, the harness looks like it does above. The harness is very well made with durable material and solid hardware. Well done. The harness goes over the dog’s head and buckles on both sides under the dog. Do not expect to take the harness out of the box, throw it on, clip it to the seat belt and five minutes later go out for coffee or ice cream. It doesn’t work that way. You must have time to fit the harness to the dog. Once all straps are adjusted so that the dog is secure but still has circulation (two fingers underneath straps comfortably, please), then you can attach your dog to the seat belt and take off.

If you’ve ever had your dog climb from the back to the front seat while you were driving, you will want to consider this product review on The Backseat Bridge by Kurgo.
