Sometimes your pup just needs a little more open space in your car to feel secure and comfortable while traveling. It’s a difficult dog’s life when you don’t know whether to be oversized and under protected on a lofty seat – or to hunker down on the not-so-soft floor, making it difficult as the owner to practice proper car/dog safety. The Back Seat Bridge does (you guessed it) just what its names says, and bridges the gap between your front and rear seats, so falling to the floor is never a problem for your pup.
With a few simple attachments this padded bridge connects between seats to extend Fido’s spot, providing the extra comfortable space that they need to have a happy ride. There is a fold down center barrier that acts as a wall just in case you stop short, and also a built in cup holder and pocket for organization.
• Sturdy, rugged pad to hold even the largest of pups
• Partition creates a barrier to hinder dog from standing on the armrest and getting in the front seat.
• Reversible to match vehicle interiors
• Cup holder and pocket for storage
• Universal fit - weight limit 100lbs (recommended for spaces not greater than 13" from back of seat to seat edge)
• Open: 16D x 52W x 1H (recommended for spaces not greater than 13" from back of seat to seat edge)
• Box: 17L x 17W x 3.5D
Product Materials: 600d Polyester with TPE Backing

The back seat bridge is everything it advertised. We have two dogs and a small car (Fiat 500L). The smaller of the dogs habitually travelled in the front passenger foot well. Now, she is more likely to stay in the back because there is enough room for both of them to lie down. Plus, it protects things that we usual pack between the seats. It was money well-spent.

All of the pictures showed the bridge being used in a vehicle with the seatback upright. I have an Edge Crossover and wanted to use it with the seatback folded down to give the dogs (two greyhounds) access to the entire back of the car. It took some adjustments, but I was able to get it to work. The straps were just long enough. The dogs love it and no longer fall into the 'pit' behind the front seat.

Love it. My oldest dog has hip dysplasia and was struggling with keeping his footing. He would sometimes fall between the seats and was not able to get himself back up. This has stopped that problem. The only downside is the fabric is a little too slippery for the dogs paws, so they tend to slide around on the bridge when the car is moving. I'm going to put a wander bed in the back and hopefully that will solve the traction problem.

Love the backseat bridge. Sturdy, easy to install, two sided color option, fits well and holds all 3 of our dogs (heaviest is 66#). Only issue is: the divider between the front and back seats doesn't stay up well allowing the dogs to "sneak" through and the more they sneak the more it flops down. Love it anyway.

I am about to purchase my 2nd backseat bridge as our 2 dogs loved it, but it kept caving in and eventually broke.I think because I have short legs and need my seat a long way forward,the gap it was bridging was too large; this time I'm going to support it underneath with a box or pillows or something.

My dog likes to stand on the console, but this barrier is helping keep him safer in the back seat. I have two 44 pound dogs and the bridge seems to hold up most of the time. One side has caved a couple times, but I know we are on the edge of the weight limit (and it collapses on the side where my seat is more forward due to my short legs). Ideally I would like to see a cloth flap that extended all the way across the seat to also help keep the seat clean, but it is helping keep the dogs contained which was the goal. The only other hitch is that I bought Kurgo harnesses for the dogs and since they are more comfortable than their old harnesses, one of the dogs has actually leapt over the console barrier twice. I guess that is good news/bad news, but I am still really pleased with the harnesses too. I can try using the seatbelt restrainer if it keeps happening.

The backseat bridge is great! We have a basset hound and a shih tzu who love car rides. The bridge provides extra room and prevents them from falling behind the front seats. Although our basset has figured out how to stand on top of the divider and still ends up on the console. Do I just need to tighten it to prevent this? Overall, this is a great product that I recommend to anyone who travels with their dogs.

My dog and I commute four hours almost every weekend. I wanted something that would enable her to move around a little more but still be safe. The backseat bridge does just that! I can give her a little more room on her backseat tether now and she can move around, yet not try to jump in the front seat with me. Great product.

I noticed that the bridge was holding up better than expected so I climbed into the back seat and curled up. I am 170lbs and it held me just fine. Very impressive product.

The back seat bridge was just what I needed in my Jeep, which I just bought to take my German Shephard with me. I keep the back seats down,and the bridge takes care of the small open area between and also the area between the two front seats. I would like to see it a little longer but still it works fine.
