Driving can be ruff when you have a pup who is determined to make his way to the front seat to sit on your lap. Keep him safely in the back with PetSafe Happy Ride Front Seat Mesh Dog Barrier. It installs easily in your car, SUV or truck and stays securely in its place with straps, a support rod and seat anchors. With the mesh construction, your pooch still has a view of his favorite person, and you can see out of the rearview mirror. PetSafe knows your pooch isn’t always your passenger, so it collapses for easy storage. Simply pop it back up when he’s riding with you again. This physical barrier helps keep your pooch in the backseat but may not stop your dog who is determined to come sit shotgun—training might be required!
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.
Successful use of the Dog Barrier might require some training with your pet. The Barrier acts as a deterrent but is not strong enough to stop a determined dog.
This product was easy to install, but unfortunately did not last through the first trip with my 65 lb Labrador puppy. He got excited and went right through the mesh, snapping the support stick in the process.
Probably fine for calmer dogs, but not what I needed.
Great! and Huge!

The price is great on this and it's easy to install. Note, it is huge! I installed it in our Suburban and it goes all the way to the roof. Probably great for some pups, but did make it impossible to toss treats back to my dog (which is a necessity on car trips). I can't really use it, but if you need something that blocks the entire area between the front seats it's perfect.
Does the Trick
on Jun 29, 2021
Our lab always insisted on standing between the two front seats, sometimes putting her head under the rearview mirror. I was nervous that she would plow right through the barrier, but she didn’t. She sat quietly in the back and looked out the back window.

We really love this dog barrier for the car! It allows AC to flow easily, and our dog does not feel as blocked off as he does with others. Super easy to see out your rearview mirror. Highly recommend!
5 Minutes of Separation
on Jul 27, 2021
Dogs were able to get around this. they also bent it when they knocked into it trying to jump into the front - it never straightened out

This is easy to install. We have a 2018 Dodge truck, and the last strap to anchor the divider down, was difficult to put around the base of the passenger's seat. I just tightened it a little, and laid it in the console and shut the console cover. Before, we had to drive with the console cover up to keep our dog, Theo, in the back. Nice to not have to do that anymore.
Didn’t last a day
on Apr 16, 2021
I bought this because I have a problem with my one dog jumping into the front seat when I put him in the truck & also jumping up behind me to get out of the truck. Well it worked great keeping him in the back when I first put him in the truck. But when we got to where we were going he jumped right through it and snapped the middle support bar. Now it’s broke. If you have a dog you know isn’t gonna try to jump through it I would recommend it. But if there is any possibility of your dog jumping through it don’t bother buying it.
Keeps my German Shepherds in the back seat!
on Apr 18, 2021
My goofy young German Shepherd dog's loves to jump into the back seat of my car (which is covered with a dog hammock) and then proceed to place his paws (usually covered in mud) on top of the console between my front seat, check out my drink cup and deposit some slobber and hair on the seats. On long trips, he will often decide that he would like to come sit in my lap while I am driving and without warning start to "ooze" his way to the front. I cannot fit a kennel for his size into my back seat, so I purchased one barrier that fit between the two front seats of my Altima, but it wasn't high enough to keep him from climbing over it to "surf" on the console. Not very safe!

I cannot fit a kennel for his size into my back seat, so I purchased one barrier that fit between the two front seats of my Altima, but it wasn't high enough to keep him from climbing over it to "surf" on the console. Not very safe! I tried putting some bungee cords across the top of the car to block the space above the divider, but that didn't work. I was skeptical of the PetSafe Happy Ride Front Mesh Dog Barrier after reading some of the reviews, but desperation and the low price convinced me to try it.
The first time I installed the Pet Safe barrier and let my boisterous dog in the car he rammed his head into it before he noticed it was there, but the barrier stayed in place. I know the Pet Safe barrier wouldn't be able to hold up if he tried to persistently push through it (he weighs 101 lbs) or if he tried to chew through it, but he doesn't want to as his issues are less separation anxiety and more "Hey, I am bored and I want to try out your seat for a bit". The fact that the screen is there is enough to keep him safely in the back seat.
I like that the barrier's mesh is see-through so I can see the dogs (and they can see me) and I am able to still see traffic clearly in my rear view mirror with no bars or solid fabric blocking my view. The mesh also allows for unimpeded air conditioning circulation in the car (important during Louisiana summers). This barrier reaches to the top of my car ceiling and completely blocks the space in between the two front seats. It took less than 10 minutes to install and will not damage the car's interior. If you do wish to take it down when not transporting your pet, it would be easy to dismantle.
If your dog is frantic when in the car and desperate to be with you, this barrier will not stop him because he will keep attacking the barrier until he tears a hole through or worms a way between the barrier and the car seat. But if your dog is just an inquisitive goof ball, then you will probably find this barrier does a great job at keeping the dog in the back seat and you safely operating your vehicle in the front seat. I am very happy with the product and wish I had purchased it sooner!… more
Only barrier that has worked
on Apr 26, 2021
This is hands down one of the best barriers I have purchased for my car. My dog is unable to get through, and it's large enough that she is not able to sneak through the sides (as she did with most others that were purchased).
No more dog head up front
on Mar 15, 2021
This product works to keep our large dog from getting up front and on the center console. However, she has figured out she can get her head between the side of the head rest and the door. But, if we are eating she can no longer get her nose into things, win! I wish it had easy to use clamps to secure it, instead of the thread the strap method. So far so good.
