I've got a Jack Russell cross with King Charles, but I want some seat covers before he goes in my new UP! As there will be fur everywhere!!

well being a vet nurse, i highly recommend having the ramp to get your dogs in and out of the car, better for their joints and well as yours!

if you get a ramp to put them in the boot, i think i saw some sort of boot/bumper protection thing which might be a good idea. but if putting them into the back of the car, covers will be a great idea!

I got a rear seat cover for my polo from ebay £9 its a sort of black cottonwaterproof type material with straps that fit round my headrests,and even a zip if you only want to use half. So far it has been great dirt/hair just shakes off, hoping I can fix it in the UP

I've got the aim about right on the polo back seat, but not sure how we will get on as think the up is lower. I can see a heap on the floor

Unfortunately my lovely dog Chewie is no longer with us due to bone cancer but there's no way he could have ridden in the up! anyway, he was an Irish Wolfhound and probably bigger than the car LOL

I have 2 dogs who love going for rides in the car , gwendolyne is a border collie and Roshka is a tibetan terrier, who thankfully doesnt lose her hair however Gwendolyne is a different story ........ my god you could stuff a mattress with the amount of hair she loses .... In fact ive often considered trading her in for a yak !
The hair never bothrered me in the fiat but then again it was a proper old cronk , my shiny new up is different . I must invest in decent covers , dont suppose anyone can recommend any ? Or indeed where to buy them , ive looked online and there is just so many i dont know where to start . Any advice would be appreciated .

YES! I've been looking for quite a while and this is the only place I've seen that do them to fit (custom made) so will accommodate the airbags

They are very professional and helpful, I'm dealing with Lucio


Just thought they only do the covers for the cars with the split rear seats, NOT the Take up! At the moment!! That's one of the reasons we upgraded, as we were originally going for a Take up! Don't know what you're getting!
