This is the shelf that creates a safe, comfortable platform for dogs riding in a vehicle’s back seat. The uneven surfaces, shallow depths, and slopes of back seats cause dogs to pace and claw to avoid sliding backwards. Eliminating both behaviors while protecting upholstery and preventing dogs from falling into a back seat’s footwells, the 48"-wide x 23"-deep deck has integrated rear leveling blocks and two adjustable front legs that create a stable level surface. Supporting dogs up to 200 lbs., it also keeps pet cages in-place with a molded non-slip surface that removes for easy machine washing. Easily transported, the deck folds in half to 24" L x 23" W x 4" D. Made in U.S. from recycled plastic. (12 lbs.)

Good Idea, but didn't work for me
By Dog lover
from Atlanta GA
Have a large dog. Did not work in a small car it raised the seat to high and he was hitting his head. Also prevented my center glove box from sliding back to open. The back seat back was not all the same across it. The middle stuck out more which created gaps where the dogs feet would slide into on both sides.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Raise your dog up
By My Angel
from Swift Current Saskatchewan CANADA
We use it when we travel with our Icelandic Sheepdog. Not a large breed but she does love to watch where we are travelling. For safety reasons she is not allowed in the front seat of the vehicle. This deck sits just high enough that she can look between the front seats to see the scenery and where we are going. I do not recommend this device for any animal larger than a German Shepherd. The only draw back is that it doesn't compensate for the backward slope of the back seat and there is a gap between it and the back of the seat where her chew items and toys can get lost. We love the carpeting that comes with it ascatches the shedding fur and keeps the vehicle fairly clean.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The DOG DECK has been placed on the back seat of my mid-sized car. I have an 85 lb dog and she can not stand up straight because of the added height but she doesn't seem to mind that. She CAN stick her head out the window and that's all she cares about!! The DECK is sturdy and it DOES cover that seat well so that the dog doesn't slide down BUT it makes it easier for doggy to slide forward into the space between the front seats when coming to a stop. I'll need to get a net or some-such item to solve that problem.

Backseat dog deck
from Lafayette, CO
Item is light weight and easy to handle. Con is that in my Tacoma the center console interferes with the deck being able to lie flat. It is angled enough that it is uncomfortable for my 105 lb. Bouvier. I was careful to measure the seat distance but neglected to take into account the console. In addition, I have to use steps for my dog to be able to get on the deck since it covers the portion of the car floor that she would use to get onto the seat/deck. Her weight doesn't seem to be a problem but would recommend for dogs that can be lifted onto the deck. I'm not recommending as all my friends have very large dogs.
Well designed, well made, didn't fit.
from Wadsworth, IL
Returned the product. Our car has a non-moveable center arm rest in the back seat. It was too high to allow the platform to sit level. We have a Cadillac ELR.Nice product, well made and arrived very quickly, but not a fit for our vehicle.

Backseat Safety Dog Seat
By Rick the engineer
from Raleigh, NC
We use the dog seat in the middle row captain seats of a 2014 Toyota Highlander. It took the addition of a 12-inch 2X4 board covered by cloth under the back of the seats to make it work plus a special block between the two captain chair seats. The dog likes it and so do we.
This product lived up to my expectations
