Shield that arm rest! We know what it’s like to drive while trying to fend off a furry head—or 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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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?

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.

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?
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.

We have owned the previous model for a number of years and have experienced some of the problems others have mentioned, namely overstretched elastic and broken plastic hardware. While I haven't had the new version long enough to comment on the elastic, the metal hardware is a definite improvement.
Installation is straightforward, but a little more labor intensive than the video would indicate. The bottom straps are the issue. The new model has better hardware, but it was difficult to find an anchor point on my Lexus RX power seats.
Finally, keeping the top part of the barrier upright and rigid takes some adjustment, but the stronger hardware should make it long lasting.

It would be much better if it stood up straight and high instead of sagging and allowing my pups to try and jump over it. Wish they made something stronger for the average sedan.
