I have a leather interior truck, what is the bottom of this made of? It'd be a pain to have it sliding around all the time
Answer by ChewyDec 29, 2017
For installation, place the Cuddler on the car seat and loop the headrest strap over the headrest and adjust for best fit. Locate the white plastic tube sewn to the underside of the Cuddler. Push the tube into the gap between the seat back cushion and seat bottom cushion. The tube can be removed with a strong tug, but will hold firmly enough to keep the Cuddler in place under normal use. Find the strap sewn to the underside of the Cuddler and pass this under one of the front corners of the seat and connect to one of the plastic adjustable anchors found on the sides of the Cuddler (use of this is optional and might not work on some floor-mounted car seats). This should keep the Cuddler from sliding around on your leather seats.

I want to use this in the backseat of a truck with no headrests. Is a headrest necessary in order to secure the bed to the seat?
Answer by ChewyJun 12, 2019
This seat must be strapped around a headrest to remain secure.

Does this have a tether that hooks to my dog's harness? Also, is it machine washable?
Answer by ChewyMay 11, 2022
Seat belt slits allow normal use of your car's seat belts with the dog bed in place. This lets you use the optional PetSafe Happy Ride Seat Belt Tether (sold separately) for maximum safety. If your seat cover is ready to be cleaned, simply toss the cover into your washing machine.

Would this fit the back seat of a Tesla 3 (2018) reasonably well?
Answer by ChewyOct 05, 2021
These Small seat cuddler is compatible with a bucket seat (it measures 23 inches wide) and the Large is made for a bench seat (it measures 55 inches wide).

My baby girl loves it!

I bought this to replace using a pillow and a blanket on the seat when my 15 lb Chihuahua rides with me. She loves it. I got her used to the idea it was for her in the house before I put it in the car, and she took to it right away. She lays her head on the bumper pad or curls up against it to sleep on longer trips. I love that it also pads the back of the seat.

Car ride for our Mazie

Car seat seems to work. However I should of ordered a bit larger size. My Corgi just fits right now. Easy to assemble.

Kind of good

I really liked this at first but after less than a year it has significantly ripped and it is only a matter of time before it goes in the trash. When i first got it, I was able to secure the straps to the seat but now they constantly loosen and it slides around on my seats. 3 stars because it works better than the plain cover in my husbands car. I don't really want to purchase this again but Chewy doesn't have other similar products so I will be shopping around.

Pass on this

This cover is too slippery for my leather seat and the center kept sliding down, even with the straps on the ends. Never could get the taut enough to solve the problem

Dog loves it!!

It’s perfect! I’ve been shopping around for something safe/comfy. This was so easy to set up. I made sure the straps were tight to prevent any sliding. Took my little guy for a drive to test it out. He immediately got comfy. I attached his seat belt to his harness & off we went. No problems at all. No slipping & he looked so relaxed. By the time we started heading home he was sleeping. I highly recommend!! My dog is a Bichon/Shih-Tzu 14 lbs *I ordered grey/small

Comfy, but slides around on leather seats and quality isn't the best

This car seat is really comfy and the dogs love it, there is just one design flaw and that is that the underside does not have enough grip on leather seats. Even though both bottom sides can be tied to the seat, there is nothing at the back on the bottom where the seatbelts are, to tie it down. Hence when you hit the breaks (not hard, just regular breaking) the whole thing, including the dog slides to the front. I have used this maybe four times with my medium dog and once with my Labrador-sized dog. The bigger dog was sliding around so much that she promptly tore a small area next to where the seatbelt goes through. In addition to that, they keep undoing their seatbelts, because they step on the seatbelt slot, which is just sticking out. It would be better if that can be covered. I would still recommend this seat cover, but you need to be aware that you might have to velcro it down and that it probably is only good for small to medium dogs.

save you money

This car seat started off great the first month but since then it’s constantly coming off. I pretty much after to readjust it after any trip over 30 min I wouldn’t recommend it.

pup refuses to lay down with this in the car

I had high hopes for this product but my pup just doesn’t like it. I set it out in the house and she wouldn’t go near it. She refuses to jump into the car when this is in there and once I lift her in she acts terrified and will not lay down (not usually a problem, she does great in the car). She actually tries to move up to the front seat which she never does. Not sure why she is acting like this but I won’t be using it again. Disappointed considering how expensive it is. Hopefully one of my local rescues can use it.

Very disappointed.

Love the concept! But ripped after just three uses. And our dog is a mid size, 30lb dog.

very nice bed

This is really an nice seat bed for my yorkie. It establishes where I want him to sit and it doesn't move around on my cloth seats, the flap going up to the head rest is a great idea and protects my fabric. There is plenty of room for him without it being too big for my car seat. Quality is fine and I have not seen any problems with this products fabric or construction. I would buy it again but really don't expect to because I feel it will hold up just fine.
