Emily Winters at DIY Network recounted her experience creating a durable, but comfortable, backseat dog bed. While you'll need some sewing experience to replicate her process, the only materials required are a few yards of heavy outdoor fabric, old bath towels, four parachute buckles, and some webbing. You'll be able to hang the finished hammock from the car's headrests, and it will go a long way towards keeping your pet safe and content in the backseat.
Good2Go No-Fur Zone Hammock Dog Car Seat Cover
Convenient for pet owners and comfortable for their dogs, the Back Seat Pet Hammock by installs easily to the back seat of most cars. Its 600-denier nylon construction provides a soft place for pets to ride in, while effectively keeping dirt and hair off of car seats and floor. As sturdy as it is comfortable, the nylon stretches sturdily across the back seat and protects dogs from falling to the floor. The hammock is also effective in keeping dogs in the backseat, where they are less likely to distract the driver. If desired, however, the driver can choose to attach the hammock to only one-half of the backseat, thus allowing a passenger to ride in the back and play with the dog.
Kurgo Grey and Red Journey Hammock Style Car Seat Cover for Dogs
I was pretty excited, then, when I found out about car hammocks. They’re pretty much over-sized backseat covers that extend from the top of the backseat to the top of the front seat, making a big hammock in-between. Not only does this protect your car interior from hair, mud and upchucks, it limits your dog to a safe space that includes a sort of “safety net” over that dangerous between-the-seats zone. It’s great for older dogs, who may get easily stressed during long travel, or active dogs who refuse to stay in their seats (talking about you, Snickerdoodle!) or for any dog who suffers from carsickness.
