Default Large Dog in the Rear Seats... Any Recs on Covers?

This little big guy is a six month old rapidly growing Newfie puppy. He's been riding shotgun in the 991, but he's growing so fast that a new Panamera is on order for him (its on a boat and will be here next month) so he can sit in the backseat. However, I've been given various recommendations on rear pet covers/hammocks (there are a number on Amazon), does anyone have a particular recommendation on one? Thanks!

Hi,
Check this one out - http://www.zooplus.co.uk/shop/dogs/d...at_mats/347070

Since i have Bernese Mountain Dog 135lbs and he rides in the back of my Panamera, i use the one above and it's really nice, because it covers the doors too.

Good Luck

I have the same situation - two dogs, 100 and 65 lbs. I don't have any experience with seat covers as such, as I have used regular blankets draped over the seats in other cars before. I am thinking about getting some covers for the Panamera when it arrives, though. I will post again if I do.

i have two big dogs also lab and Rottweiler.
I had a car seat cover, it was too much work to put in on and off. The seats in my M5 and GTS have held up well, minus a lot of dog hair. I will let you know how the new panamera holds up to the dogs.

I have one of these that I use in a BMW wagon (started poking this forum considering a replacement for that car):

Amazon Amazon


Looks like that one is out of stock, but a number of mostly identical ones are available.

Our Briard, a bit smaller than a Newfie, but almost as much fur, spends about 8 hours a week back there, so it's seen lots of use. My SO repaired one of the straps after a chewing incident and now the side connection is looking a little torn. On the one hand I might try to find a higher quality one, on the other hand it's probably fine to replace it once a year, at those prices it's basically disposable.

I really like the fact that it forms a tub so anything dragged in by the dog remains in there and can be vacuumed out without going into all the seat crevices with a tool. I would not skip that feature.

With heavy dogs I used a combination of lawn chair cushions and seat covers. The contact pressure from their paws will eventually destroy the seats without some cushioning. If your foot had ever been stepped on by a 110 pounder, you know what I'm talking about.

I used to put my 2 dogs in the back seat of my A8L, but for the Panamera I'm thinking of just folding the rear seats down and putting pillows and blankets out for them. A 90# yellow lab and a 140# Greater Swiss Mountain dog.
