Dog hair & new car

We have just bought a new car today, and I wondered if anyone had any advice for keeping it dog hair free (our dog sheds a lot). I am wondering if there are seat covers or anything you can buy? Thanks

Yep loads of them on Amazon and also boot covers too. I a sure you can get specific ones for your car make.

May ruin the effect of your lovely new car though

Over the top do ones specifically for your car or can custom make. My quilted waterproof boot ones can be washed and look like new 10 years on.

I have waterproof fitted covers on the backseat, and cheaper stretchy ones for the front (not that dogs sit there, but to stop the hair getting on the back of the seats) All machine washable and available on Amazon smile

I'm a dog walker so often have three dogs in the back at once. They're great covers and seem very good quality.

Our dogs go in the boot and we have a Hatchbag which fits the boot exactly and is waterproof etc. No hair in the rest of he car

I have a waterproof boot cover and dog guard to keep the dogs in the boot to keep the rest of the car hair free.

We have this - it is very easy to unhook so we can use the back seat and also stops dog falling into the footwell

DDog's hair is everywhere, all the time... I need to get a better quality car seat cover but in the meantime I've learned to put on a pair of rubber gloves, wipe all over the seats, and the gloves pick it up like a dream.

Far more effort than I'd like, but also oddly satisfying....

Mine go in the boot, I bought a car specific boot liner from Boot Buddy (made out of acrylic), and then an attachment which folds out over the bumper to avoid scratches.

We also have the boot buddy liner and it’s great. You put in the make and model of your car so it fits exactly.

In the previous car we had one of the hammock style back seat covers from amazon but we now have a 4 x 4 so use the boot.

I have a dog hammock from Amazon. Best 20quid ever spent.
