Hi all,

We're looking for a seat cover for our nox to help collect some of the dirt/dog hair on the back seat. Does anyone have any good recommendations? We got a generic one from Amazon for our last car, but it doesn't fit the seat really well.

Thanks!

Weathertech has one that will fit your vehicle, it's called a seat protector rather than a seat cover and specifically states for pet protection. The illustrated photo shows a few mild wrinkles but seems like a reasonable fit given I'm sure it's designed for easy R and R for cleaning purposes.

I'll check that out, thanks! Do you all think seat covers are necessary/useful, or are they a waste of money?

Up to the individual, but many years ago when I toted around a wire-haired pointer in my pickup I just used an old blanket for him to sit on, easy on and off and easy to launder.

I’m also looking to try to keep her from going through the windshield if we’re ever in an accident. I was thinking maybe a hammock style cover.

I thought about something like this, but I know the cargo area is a crumple zone in a lot of vehicles. She's a service dog for my blind fiancee, so don't want to risk that.

Only way to secure a dog is harness attached to the seat belt or other solid anchor point to limit the pup from flying forward. Also a flying pup may do more injury to the humans up front than the dog itself.
Look into what's used to secure dogs in a pickup bed also.

I don't have experience with seat covers but I have weathertec rubber floor mats and they are good quality 👍

I have a ruffwear one in my Jeep and one they don't make anymore in my '11 Equinox... The ruffwear one is nicely made and folds into itself for storage. Look for something nonslip and waterproof if your dog is at all messy like mine. Some hair will get through the seatbelt holes but better than nothing. I have a German Shepherd so hair everywhere without it.

As for the harness/restraint, I have a sleepypod clickit, I will say, if you're serious about your dog being safe and you're doing highway driving, do some research. Most harnesses for dogs in the car are only actually tested to 30 mph. Depends on the size of your dog but I'd rather be safe.
