Highland Pet Barrier

I got sick and tired of taking my dogs to the vet or the lake. Every time I'd throw them in the back and start to drive, they'd claw their way over the back seats. Aside from strangling themselves on their leashes, god knows what that would do to the seats over the long term. Plus, there would be no way to have the baby in the back and have them climb all over him.

This is one of the cheapest all black pet barriers I saw that fits (some of them are too tall even at the lowest setting). http://www.discountramps.com/pet_barrier.htm

All of these pet barriers are held up by pressure on the headliner and cargo floor. Wouldn't trust these to hold back a big dog. It fits between the seats and cargo cover, which is nice, and provides extra stability. And it doesn't look half bad or obscure your view.

Have had a very similar one for a few years now. Got it off ebay for about 17 bucks if I remember and about $10 shipping. My dog is not real tall and about 60 lbs. It has really worked well and I agree with your assessment of it. Very easy in and out, and has not damaged headliner.

Thanks for the post, and perfect timing. I have two labs (90lbs and a puppy that will soon become that big) and I have been searching for a way to separate the cargo area from the fold down seats for road trips.

My use is a little different though. I want to keep our luggage in the very back, then the barrier to keep the luggage from killing the dogs when I stop, and then the dogs in the area of the rear seats when folded.

So here is a silly question I guess - do they offer that barrier with more of the loops so it is covered from top to bottom? Or another option, can you install it upside down?

Again, my main concern is having a way to keep our luggage in the very rear cargo area separated. I hope this makes sense.

yep. they've got all sizes on that website. I did a lot of looking and they seem to have the best selection. Just be sure to check the height to make sure it will fit. I think you're looking for the one made for minivans.

I guess you could also order the extension kit and just add the cross bars without the height extender.

From the front through the windshield, and I couldn't get a picture that would show this, the bars look pretty tough--so if you have to have something like this, I don't think it's an eyesore.

not an eyesore at all! I think it would def serve its purpose. Do you have like a rubber mat back there so the pets hair won't get in the carpet?

Nope but, after vacuuming the hair today, I'm ordering the weathertech mat tonight.
