Unhappy Dog hair resistant seat covers?

I just replaced my 08 JK with a 2013, and I've noticed that the new fabric seems to hold onto my terrier's hair a lot more. As owners of sheddy dogs know, some fabrics hold onto dog hair more stubbornly than others; so, I'm hoping for a recommendation on a seat cover that won't allow the hairs to penetrate as easily, or aren't as static-prone in a dry desert environment. This way the hairs eventually find their way to the floor and I don't have to use a roller before I go to work every morning. I can live with a half-dozen hairs on my slacks, but it's too much many right now.

For the record, my dogs haven't even been in my Jeep; this is all hair that's attached itself to my body while I'm in the house and found its way to the jeep -- normally via my shoes. Other than shaving my dogs (and I've considered it) I'm cursed with dog hair as in every aspect of my life. I've even deposited some in hotels in Australia. I'm (or my JRT is) a menace to the world.

Thanks!

We have 2 Dalmatians and a Golden Retriever. I know about the fur sticking to clothes,and use a roller on me and the seats. The rear seat I have one of those covers that snap on the headrest and cover the back and bottom,but the front seats don't have anything. We have a fenced acre yard, but our dogs stay mostly inside, so fur happens. I love my dogs more than most people and wouldn't have it any other way!

Neoprene is great for fur. Just don't buy the Smittybuilt neoprene covers- they faded in a couple of months.

I'm having a similar problem. My JRT loves to ride, but leaves a trail of white hair. It's a lot worse in the JK. In the truck (Dodge) or the wife's Prius it's easy to brush off, but the hair works into the weave on the JK seats.
And no, I'm not leaving him outside - his last owner did that during a hurricane.

FWIW I picked up a set of Dickies seat covers at Wal Mart. I put them on when Greta the Weim rides in the Jeep and take them off for work or the wife.
The dog hair has worked into the covers but not so much worked thru to the seats themselves.
Not sure if this helps..............

My dog belongs in my house, on my bed, on my leather Italian sofa, and in my Jeep.
And if you want to know, why he belongs on leather Italian sofa - answer is simple :
I love my dog more then any sofa.

I have leather seats with a Fosters and Smith dog hammock which works great for the seats but the carpet is another case. I have two huskies and getting the hair out of the carpet is a real pain.

Trek Armor seat covers are very nice. The dogs have not ridden in the jeep but , hair is transported to the jeep from inside the house. I have not noticed too much hair on seats. My problem is I need to cover the cargo area in a 2 door with the back seat out and need something that covers the side also. 2 white dogs and black carpet = fur ball! Any suggestions??

I have these - they look just like leather, and dog hair wipes right off. I would highly recommend them.

Edit: Upon further review, they don't list them for a 2013 JK yet. I wonder if the seats have changed enough that the covers for the older JK's wouldn't fit?

Quadratech liner- when the seat is out only. (It doesn't work great with the seat in if you have one of the pesky rear seats that doesn't lock).
Don't cut out the holes- you'll create a fur black hole.
I can't find anything for the sides. That stupid short pile carpet is like velcro. While I don't like the look (no offfense to anyone) I am planning on bed lining this spring sometime. I figure if it looks terrible/I do a bad job I'll just put the carpet back down. But currently I have 3 different vacuums and I still can't get all the fur out. I vacuum and then use duct tape for the leftover hairs.

I went to wal-mart aka hell and found dickies seat covers for both front and rear cost me about $35 total. I
'm a A/V guy so I'm constantly wearing dickies and the seat covers last just a well! Dog hair from my weimer come straight off in the wash. Also the are water resistant and have already saved my seats from some minor cuts.

To: 109 Rider...you took the words right out of my mouth. Jeeps are for dogs, just as much as they are for humans.

I just got a set of give seat covers and they allow the dog hair to fall right down to the carpet. Then I use the "as seen on tv" schticky roller to grab the hair. Works for me.

How else would I get my boys to the Apps to go hiking with me, but in my Jeep?

He probably doesn't like getting "people" all over him, but he doesn't complain!

When off roading, are you guys doing anything to secure your dogs down? Or do they just flop all over the place? My golden is 100 lbs and I would hate for him to get hurt

Terrier fur is particularly tough to get rid of because it is so wiry in texture. Dual coated dogs are notorious shedders.

Neoprene covers do work.

I use a simple damp cellulose sponge to get my GSD's fur up off the carpet and upholstery. It works far better than tape or lint rollers. Both can get expensive quickly.

There is a nice thread on this but can't find it at the moment. Safari straps as the barrier/surround. I have a Rugged Ridge grab handle installed on my soundbar. (it installs behind the bolts; very secure). To this I attach a quality Dring- and loop the dogs leash through it. She wears a harness. With a 6ft leash she can't jump out- but this will vary based on your dogs size.
There are other ways- some very nice custom stuff.

Yeah, one of my JRTs hadn't ever been in a house for the first year and a half of his life and was a sad miserable dog. It gets to single digit temperatures in Reno in the winter -- that's cruel.

Leather. Good thought. If I'd known that there would be such a difference in the fabric, I would have gone with Leather. Maybe I can get someone to reupholster my seats locally. That would solve the problem and be better than leather seat covers.
