We had a different barrier to try to keep our 55-lb "lap dog" (or so he thinks) in the back seat. It was never 100% effective, and when we upgraded our SUV to a new model, it didn't even fit anymore. Tried this one in the hopes that it would fit and actually keep him in the back row, and so far in limited usage, we couldn't be happier. The other one didn't go as high, so he would put his chin on it and push it down to the point he could even get a paw on it occasionally. This one goes all the way to the ceiling of our '23 CR-V so he doesn't even try to get through it. The center post gives it strength, and the ties on either side fit around the posts of our front row headrests quite easily and snugly. The only thing that doesn't work in our car is there's a piece attached to the bottom that is supposed to secure into the passenger seat and hold the bottom firm to the center console. In our CR-V, the front seats don't have a gap between the seatback and the seat, so I haven't found a way to make use of that piece. That said, our dog is not one who will try to climb under the barrier with how it sits in the car, so we don't really need that part anyway. tl;dr: We love this barrier and it's the first one that has worked well for our dog.
This is exactly what I was looking for! I had a decently large dog who gets very excited when we go to his favorite places and would jump back and forth between the front and the back which is dangerous. If he really wanted to, he could get through this but it does the job of discouraging that dangerous behavior and he usually lays down more often. My only complaint is the bottom anchor does not work the with the front seats I have but he still doesn't push it out of the way. It perfectly does the function I bought for.
This barrier worked well at first, but my new rescue pup has figured out how to get under it and up to the other side, so she's able to get over the console and into the front passenger seat, which isn't ideal. Unfortunately just not right for us! Still seems to be good quality though!
Ripped and destroyed within one day, cant stand up to a 50 lb dog desperate to get into the front seat.
Our dog loves to try to drive the car, so this screen does just the trick to keep her as a backseat passenger.
My big dog would always put his paws on console between seats. Any stops or sudden stops he would come thru an paws would scratch me. Now he canno do that an I am safe an so is he
Our little corgi refused to stay in the back. Her preferred was location perched on the armrest of our Prius between the front seats. Kind of an adorable navigator, but definitely not safe. We'd tried a couple of barriers. Alas, corgis are smart, calculating and determined. This works! I attached to headrest as shown and anchored it by putting the strap around the opening hinges of the very armrest she use to inhabit.
Now own three all work great. Fits great in Ram 1500s
My husky broke this the first time we used it. She bent the bar that goes down the middle.
I have a pretty big active cattle dog/shepherd who weighs about 58 pounds. She liked to ride with her two paws on the front console. Dangerous for both of us!! I don't like having her stuck in the kennel in the back either as she can not fully stand. This way, with the Mesh Dog Barrier and a seat cover she can look out the windows, lay down, poke her nose around the corner but not get into the front seat. I wish it was rectangle so that it would cover the corners. She tried to get through the first day and almost got stuck. She didn't do that again! All in all I am very, very happy with it!!
