Top Paw Travel Hammock
Had to replace after 2 weeks
The hammock size worked well in my mid-size SUV. However, there is a terribly placed zipper. It is located in the middle portion between the driver and passenger seats. I'm not sure it's purpose - but all my dog had to do was step on that area, and it came unzipped, defeating the purpose of keeping her in the back. She was even in a harness to limit her movement. She also chewed on the zipper, and it soon broke, so it never stayed closed. It lasted maybe 2 weeks, and I had to purchase another hammock - and I chose a different supplier. Would not buy this again.

Great design but not very durable.
This product worked great to keep my seats protected from muddy dog prints and hair! I like that the hammock reaches up between the front seats to keep my dog from climbing up front with me! However the underneath side started peeling off...you can't see it when the hammock is in the car but when I have to take it out for my non-pet passengers the peelings are always all over the seat! Quite a pain. If not for that I'd buy it again.

I like the hammock concept but I had two problems with this one. 1. The center zipper kept coming down despite the latch and 2. The surface was so slick that my 40+ lb. dog would just slide around every time I turned a corner. He had no traction so I exchanged it.

Works just fine!
I love this thing! Any one that owns a pug knows they shed A LOT! Their pug is also difficult to remove. This hammock keeps 90% of the pug fur contained. Very little makes it way to the floor or through the seat belt holes. Once it is fitted to to your vehicle, it installs and can be removed in seconds. I love the little pockets too. I keep the tether for in the car in the pocket so I always have it when needed.
Most of the problems people had with this product could be easily eliminated if they TETHERED their dog in the vehicle, which is much safer for the dog and the passengers. Your dog would not be able to crawl under the hammock or jump over it if the dog were tethered. There is also a clip on the zippers. If you use the clip for its intended purpose the dog can not unzip the middle and get to the front (it would not be able to get up there is you tethered the dog).
