Above is also Joe. Joe can be a dick sometimes…

Mind my leather seats!!

Joe loves mud and water. The leather seats in my Mazda CX5 hate mud and water, so I turned to the interweb.

Looking through the options there were three main criteria:

  1. Joe had to be safe
  2. My seats had to be protected
  3. Sometimes it would be nice to carry people in the back, rather than just Joe

Looking around for inspiration it soon became clear that the answer was a hammock-style car seat cover.

The usual research into materials, features and, of course, user reviews led me to this one:

Either end of the seat cover can fold-down to protect the seat base when a muddy Joe is getting in and out. It can then be zipped up to protect the door linings, and a strap (supplied) threads around the rear seat grab handles and holds the end panel up.

The mesh section between the front seats can also be unzipped to access the Joes in the back.

If there was one thing that was disappointing, it was the lack of seatbelts. Fortunately, I had two already. These pass through velcro closures and clip into the seat belts. The other end has a dog clip for connecting to a harness.

This is the second hammock-type cover I’ve had and seems to be standing up to use significantly better than the previous one.

So far it has had beach-sodden dogs (sand, seaweed and very wet (plus whatever that disgusting thing was that was in Joe’s mouth). It has also had several muddy trips to the woods but, so far, nothing has gotten on to the seat-leather or the door cards.
