Questions & Answers

15 Customer Questions

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.

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.

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.

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).

Wish I could rate lower

Received this today and was excited to take my pup out. Opened the box and everything was weirdly thrown in and not wrapped. The stuffing was coming out of the bolster and there was no stuffing in the part that goes into the seat. Almost positive I either A received a return or B this product is garbage.

Cheaply made

My dogs used this once and I took it out of my car and it is ripped

Not as practical as I thought

Didn't like this product. The middle sags in and doesn't fit quite right. I'm going to just use a regular dog bed with a non inflatable mattress. Pieces of the bedding keep coming off too.

Great car seat

My dog loves curling up in this seat and napping while we drive.

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.

Don't bother if you have leather seats

Firstly if you have leather car seats, don't bother. Just remove this product from your bookmarks and/or cart. When my 12-lb dog is in the bed, inertia causes this thing to slip around enough that my dog feels more secure out of the bed or hanging out on the floor of the car. What a disappointment. Thought I was treating my dog to something for our long road trip. Maybe if the bed had non slip gripping (wish I read the reviews and realized from the description that there is none!) on the bottom it would be more secure. The plastic tube that's meant to anchor the bed into the seat, could be longer in length and wider in diameter-- it's pretty small on a long non-adjustable strap. The lower strap works just as pictured but most car seats have rounded corners, I don't see how the lower straps would work for most cars once this seat starts slipping. Quality is less than expected. Zipper hardware is cheap. Bed is comfortable when we tried it out on the couch-- my dog immediately jumped in with toy and is a lover of bolsters. Though "overstuffed" bolsters in the description is definitely is accurate-- I was able to insert the stuffing into the bed, but with any sort of regular removal for washing, I can already tell the insert lining will rip sooner than later. This was money well wasted.

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
