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.
So far so good!

We are taking our dog with us on vacation. She has tried it out and loves it
Great addition to a vehicle w/ animals!!
from North Pole, Alaska
It's been great to lay it across the back of the Van giving us additional needed cargo space on top of a wire kennel. Because we travel with several dogs most of the time, this has been a needed addition to our Van. I'm handicapped and use a wheel chair, so, again, this 'Pet Deck' has added needed cargo space for groceries, pet supplies, etc... Thank you very much. The only thing I would do differently, would be to add to the length of the two legs.
Great Product--Just what we had hoped
easier for our Maltese to see out the windows,
Could easily be improved
from Cooperstown NY
It really needs a means of holding it in place. Straps would be good. At least it needs something to attach straps to.
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate the comments from our customers that help us improve our product offering.

I was a little afraid that this wouldn't fit properly in my car but it is just great. I love it and I think my dogs to, they travel now so much better and confortable and it's easier for them to look try the windows. The only thing I suggest changing is the fabric they sent you to put on top, there is no way to attach it so it move, I put velcros on it and now it's perfect.
Happy small & medium dogs
from Dandridge, TN
It fits great in my Chevy Colorado pickup.Great for the dogs, they seem to be more secure. Grocery bags stand up better & the seat is protected from spills. When I go to the hardware store, I put shovels, bags of dirt, shelving & metal brackets on it. I don't have to worry about the sharp objects puncturing holes in the seat. When I need the back seat for passengers, it can be easily removed.
