Paw prints, scratches and lots of stray fur. That’s the only appropriate way to describe your car’s backseat when you regularly give your dogs a ride in them. Transport the pooch cleanly with the Solvit Waterproof Hammock, a hanging bed for pets designed to keep your entire backseat area clean.
Essentially, it’s like putting a roof over that whole section. Any fleas, fur or dirt that would have found its way to your precious upholstery will stay on the sling instead. Of course, it also renders the backseat unusable for anyone but your dogs, but if you’re not traveling with anyone else, it sounds like a feasible solution.
The Solvit Waterproof Hammock is made from heavy-gauge polyester and measures 56 x 59 inches. It’s got edge trimming for better strength, four adjustable straps designed to attach to the cabin’s front and rear headrests, and two Sta-Put devices to hold it in place. Once hooked, the bottom of the sling rests right on the seat, so the dog remains comfortable throughout the trip. Additionally, it actually looks safer for dogs during abrupt stops than when they’re just chilling in the seats, so no dogs will be shooting out of your windshield any time soon.
It uses heavy-proof backing to keep water away, so your mutt can relieve himself in transit and none of it will get in the upholstery. Of course, if you make one of those sudden stops while the dog’s indulging in his “outbursts,” your entire car will probably be sprayed. But the chances of that happening are like, 1 in 1000000000 (yes, I pulled that number out of you know where), so you’re good.
Want one? Amazon has the Solvit Waterproof Hammock for around $27.
