Keep Fido in his place

Shield that arm rest! We know what it’s like to drive while trying to fend off a furry heador whole furry body, for that matter. Never mind the beating the front of your car takes, like when you run into the store and come back to find you-know-who drooling on the steering wheel.

Here is where the Backseat Barrier™ comes in. Super stylish, this cloth barrier attaches to the back of your front seats, creating a soft wall between you and Fido…blocking that little space above your center console. He can still sit and peer through the mesh top; you can even reach back for a scratch if necessary. Most importantly, this barrier helps to keep you distraction free while driving, and keeps your pup safely out of the front of the car.

Like all of our products, this one is versatile and simple to install and remove. See for yourself how just a tiny bit of separation makes you a better puppy parent and driver. 

  • Protects passengers and cargo from roaming dogs
  • Protects dog from launching into the front during quick stops
  • No need to remove when passengers or cargo are in backseat
  • Front seat stays clean of dog hair
  • Universal fit for most vehicles from a compact to a SUV (does not accommodate 2 door cars or minivans)
  • Simple installation / removal

  1. Bad fit

    Posted by Augie's mom on 17th Jun 2014

    I have a Mercedes GLK 350. Could not get this barrier to work at all. Passenger seat had no hooks or anyplace to attach the hook required. Even if there was a way to attach the barrier the design is terrible for SUV's that have the rear a/c vents behind the armrest. The cup& bone holder completely blocks the rear vents so no air can get in the back.There is mesh at the bottom...but that is nowhere near the a/c.

    Kurgo Note: We are sorry to hear this product did not work out for you. We have a couple of other customers that have used it with the same vehicle. They turned the A/C vents up to the ceiling and were able to get flow. You are welcome to return it and can contact info@kurgo.com for assistance.

  2. Works well; Made well

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Mar 2014

    The product is excellent. The barrier is great, fits well, easy to install. It is very well made. This is my second Kurgo product. Also very good on-phone customer contacts.

  3. slows but doesn't stop...

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Feb 2014

    The barrier installed easy enough but it isn't quite doing the trick. The barrier isn't very rigid so my dog is still able to jump over. I have an F150 and there is still a large gap between the top of the barrier and the roof. Its better than having no barrier at all, I just wish it was taller.

  4. best investment to make

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Jan 2014

    I bought this backseat barrier with no regrets. It is very durable material and it really stops my shiatsu from jumping on the front seat. I can understand why they say lifetime warranty as the fabric is great.

  5. Didn't work for me

    Posted by Paula Higgins on 9th Dec 2013

    Our 70lb mastiff mix was always trying to sneak in front between the seats - unfortunately she was still able to do so with this barrier installed. Was not happy when she squeezed over with muddy paws from the dog park. Vehicle is Subaru Outback

  6. Barrier for our mini van

    Posted by Anne Codman on 18th Nov 2013

    We have two huge Shiloh shepherds and are getting set for a 1500 mile trip with them in the car. These are very social dogs and would love to join us in the front seat, if we would let them, so your barrier was a necessity. I was a bit concerned about whether or not it would work, but one of your staff took the time to help me figure out whether or not it would fit, and I am happy to say it does. We haven't taken the trip yet, but have done many local trips and we haven't had any company in the front seat because of the barrier.
    Thanks for the great product.

  7. Very happy!

    Posted by Unknown on 24th May 2013

    I'm very pleased with this product. I installed it in my 2002 Ford Focus (removable headrests) in just a few minutes with absolutely no difficulty. It fits very well. My dog is not one to chew or push things over - he needs a visual cue of where his space ends, and this provides it. Not only does it stop him from riding with his paws on the center console or jumping into the front seat, but it also reduces his anxiety and car sickness, an unexpected bonus. Great product.

  8. as a seat divider?

    Posted by sleterpunk on 6th Nov 2012

    I looking in the internet to see it as a seat divider but nothing nowhere even at the site of the company that produce it....What about that?

  9. Jury still out

    Posted by Jan on 3rd Oct 2012

    We bought this to help restrain our golden retriever who has some anxiety when traveling. First the barrier was difficult to attach as the headrests in our Yukon XL are not removable and the straps are not long enough to reach as directions suggest for alternative installation. Second, the barrier does not reach to the floor so the dog can crawl underneath. We had to place a bag between the back of the console and the bottom of restraint. I would like a more positive resolution. Also the plastic latches for the straps seem too lightweight. Pictures show all metal hardware.

  10. doesn't fit like it's supposed to?

    Posted by Kelly on 1st Oct 2012

    Hi - I purchased the Kurgo seat barrier through DoggyLoot and we spent nearly an hour yesterday trying to fit it into our 4-door car. Our headrests are detachable, but they are way too far apart for the instructions using the detachable head rest to work. Your head rests literally have to be right next to each other for it to work this way. We tried installing it using the fixed headrest instructions and we kinda sorta got it installed, but it's not as tight and fitted as the photos and video lead us to believe. Our dogs could easily push through it or jump over it. The photos show it high and the way we had to install it, our little one can jump right over it. Can you help please, Kurgo?

    :::Kurgo Response::
    Hello Kelly,

    Sorry to hear that you are having issues installing the backseat barrier. I sounds like it would be helpful to give us a call or watch the installation video located on our site (see below). There shouldn't be any issues installing the barrier in most vehicles, it is designed to fit from a mini to a suburban. Please contact us for help.
