This month has been crazy. Mom was very busy making our Halloween costumes. She prefers to make mine since I am weirdly shaped as she likes to call it. I am not a very long or tall dog, but barrel shaped. Costumes don’t always fit me properly. Two years ago I was Lily Potter (Harry’s Mum) and last year I was Batman. This year mom was having trouble thinking of a good costume. She finally decided on a Ninja Turtle. My Twitter pals voted on which one I should be. They decided on Michelangelo. It is a pretty pawsome costume. Mom even dressed up as the reporter April O’Neil!
How do I look?
This month I got to try out this pretty cool seat cover that helps keep your car clean and it works with the harness I tested out a few months ago.
We actually used my hoo aunts’ car to test out this product, because moms’ car got attacked by a tree when a big storm came through. It hurt our house too. The good thing is that no human or animal got hurt during the storm. My hoo aunts car is pretty similar in size to the Lily mobile, so we figured it would be a good substitute.
If you read our previous blog post about the Kurgo Tru Fit Smart Harness, then you know that Kurgo has videos with products so you wont have to worry about using one of their products together incorrectly. Using a product like a car harness incorrectly can possibly harm us, so we highly recommend watching the videos.
The product we tested this month is a Kurgo Heather Bench Seat Cover in a charcoal color.
Mom made sure she read through the instructions and watched the video a couple times to make sure that she knew the proper way to put it on the seat. She found it to be super easy. They do a great job of writing written instructions. She was able to have it up and running in under 5 minutes.
The two flaps at the bottom are for seat belt access. Remember me mentioning abut my harness a bit ago? This works with my harness. We can have access to the seat belt so that I can be properly buckled into the car.
There are two sets of clips that go around each of the headrests. There are also two plastic tubes that you push from the front of the seat into the back. This helps the seat cover from sliding off. There is one more additional clip that wraps around the back of the seat. This is optional, but we chose to clip it. There are also two pockets to store stuff, such as a leash, poop bags, or treats!
Feeling the fabric, you can tell that it is very sturdy and will protect your car seat. Moms seat is leather, so this seat cover and help protect it from nails poking holes in the seat. If you happen to have a cloth seat like my aunts car, then you can prevent something like dirt or mud from getting on the seat. The seat cover has piped edges, so that if some dirt got on the cover, it would get caught by that. It is machine washable on the gentle cycle and should be hung to dry.
After she got the seat cover on and took some pictures, it was time for me to hop up in the car and get me buckled in.
There are two different ways that you can secure your pup in the car. The way mom secured me in is the best way. The other way allows your pup to move a little bit more. I was strapped in nice and tight. I did not like that way. I like to be able to move a bit, but the best practice way is what will protect us best if there was a car crash.
I did like the way the car seat cover felt. It was quite comfy and did not feel scratchy or too rough on my fur. It looks very nice in the car as well. The cover is 55 inches long, it should fit most vehicles. It fit my aunts car quite nicely. She has a Mercury Mariner and mom has a Suzuki Grand Vitara , or did have one. 😦
Mom really likes this seat cover and cannot wait to test it out on the next Lily mobile. She gives it two thumbs up and I give it four paws up. We are really loving products from Kurgo. They seem to know what pups and pup parents want in a product. Having a product that makes mom happy and me comfy is important.
We have a different seat cover that we received in monthly dog product box and found this seat cover to be far more superior in ease of use and sturdiness of the material.
