About This Item

  • Helps limit driver distraction so you can keep your eyes on the road, not on your attention-seeking pup.
  • Collapses for easy storage when your pooch isn’t your passenger—pops back open when he’s joining.
  • Mesh construction is damage-resistant to protect against your pup’s paws and allows you to keep an eye on the happenings in the backseat.
  • Wraps around the front headrests and works with a support rod and seat anchors to keep it securely in place.
  • Compatible with most cars, SUVs and trucks so you can keep your pooch in the back no matter which car you’re taking.

Can you easily look back and see through it. I mean like if you need to look back through your back car window, can you see through? If you can’t then it’s a bad traffic hazard...
Answer by ChewyMay 07, 2018
This Barrier has claw proof micro-mesh makes it easier to see through than metal tube barriers.

Would it be possible to connect 2 of these together to create a wider (side to side) barrier?
Answer by ChewyMay 17, 2018
Multiple barriers cannot be added together to cover more area. This barrier adjust to fit most headrest.

How well does this work if the front seats are not aligned? Example, my husband and I are in the vehicle and my seat is pulled further forward by several inches.
Answer by ChewyMay 05, 2020
This barrier works best with the seats at the same distance forward/back in the vehicle, as the attachments on each side connect at the headrest. If the seats were a good distance apart, the barrier would sit sideways. It would still do the job of keeping the pet in the back though.

Would this work on a Yukon between the second row bucket seats to keep the dog in the cargo area?
Answer by ChewyMar 02, 2019
The barrier acts as a deterrent but is not strong enough to stop a determined dog.

Stopped in her tracks!

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.

It Doesn't Look Like it Will Work

Right out of the box this thing looked to flimsy to hold either of my dogs back. When I looked at it closer, I wasn't sure if the straps were in the right places to be able to attach to anything. Instead of spending more time trying to figure it out, this is still sitting in its box. Maybe the straps are in the right place, maybe they're not. It's cheaper to have a passenger sit in my car to keep the dogs in the back seat.

Calm dogs only?

My dog loves to dance between the front passenger seat and the back seat while squeaking to express her anxiety. She has figured out how to get on the floor and come up under the corner of this item after two days of use. I think it might work just fine for a less determined or anxious dog

Would recommend

The barrier itself appears flimsy but it is expected to not be solid since it folds back up for storage. I installed in 5 minutes. Once you figure out how to tighten the straps you’re golden. Straps are not flimsy and hold the item up great. I actually loosened the straps a bit so the barrier doesn’t rest on my roof so my moon roof slides back and forth. Windows down, the barrier didn’t flop around or make any noise, even though loosened. Mesh is see through and didn’t cover my blind spot and could see just fine out my back window. Covers up the entire open space between the seats. Had an anchor to stick in the back pocket of your car seat to keep the bottom from flopping around. My dog is 22lbs and listens well, so after being told twice he couldn’t come up front he settled down and never tested the barrier. If you have a big, or excitable dog, this barrier is not for you, they’re comin’ through. All in all im pleased and it was a good purchase for the money.

I would probably recommend this for small to medium dogs

I had high hopes for this, for a small or medium dog it might be fine, but not for large puppies. I set it up and the first time my dog got excited, he just knocked it over. I thought we would give it a week and see if he gets used to it, but The first day we used it, he broke it before we got home. The piece that broke is the small piece that connects the two bigger rods. In all fairness to the product, He is a 65 pound, seven-month-old puppy.

Not for me and my dogs

I wasn’t satisfied with this purchase. I can see it being functional for other people with different dogs and a different car. My dogs are small and can slip right under this thing because there’s a gap between the barrier and my car console. The gap increases if the seats need to be moved. It’s not super flimsy but it can be moved and nosed right out of the way. Will probably return.

Works great

This was easy to install, worked perfectly to keep my dog out of the front seat. The only reason I gave it four stars was because of the reduced visibility out of the back of my car. I have an SUV and the screen is in my direct line of vision to the back of my car. It would be particularly difficult at night.

Not effective if using a hammock

Hard to say if this would work better without also using a seat hammock, but my pup climbed right on up mid-ride and it was very unexpected while on the highway. It’s pretty flimsy so it didn’t take much for her to pop right on under. Great in theory — but didn’t take my 30 lb. golden puppy much time to figure out how to get around it and come see me. We are going to use a travel crate for now instead.

Too Flimsy

I have 2 beagles & they found a way to get underneath it to get to the front seat. I have a mini van. Def disappointed.
