Trading My New 2012 JKUR Or My Dog!

So I've had my new 2012 JKUR exactly 1 month and I just spent the last 2 hours vacuuming up Yellow Lab hair that managed to find its way into every single nook and cranny of the all black interior. Ok, obviously I'm not really going to trade either of them but I can tell you one thing for sure; either my next Jeep is gonna have all tan interior or my next dog is gonna be a Black Lab.

LOL Yeah, Golden Retriever hair isn't much better. That's why my dog doesn't ride with me too much during shedding season. Atleast not without a good brushing beforehand.

Are your seats cloth?

I've got a German shorthaired pointer who does the same to my Liberty. My Shop-Vac is nowhere NEAR powerful enough to get all the hairs off. It's like they were dipped in Crazy Glue.

I bought seat liners for my '12, but I'm not very confident that's gonna make much of a difference.

Funny, but when I read the title of your thread I felt a tiny stab of anxiety. First for the Jeep, then for the dog.

Yeah the seats are cloth. Unfortunately I ordered my Jeep EXACTLY 2 days before they decided to offer black leather as an option with the all black interior. Ordered my Jeep on 8/29 then found out on 8/31 that black leather was available. Go figure! Heard a lot of horror stories on a few boards including this one about people making changes to "ordered vehicles" that didn't go so well so I figured I would just leave it cloth.

Gonna do Katzkins at some point so that'll same some vac time on the seats but the carpet was no treat to vacuum either.

Know exactly what you mean. I need a decal for mine that says "Warning Jeep infested with dog hair. Enter at your own risk."

And THAT is exactly why I bought a set of Safari Straps!

Well, that and to prevent munchkin escape attempts.

Yeah, got'em too. Have to admit the front seats were a lot easier to clean-up than the back. for Safari Straps!

Take some really good duct tape (not the cheapo Lowes stuff), tear off a strip and make a reverse loop- sticky side out. Use that like a lint roller to grab most of the hair. I use a combination of a very good Shop Vac and the duct tape loops and it gets all the dog hair.

Around my house it's not called dog hair, it's called condiments. I have a golden retriever, chocolate lab, and a spaniel mix. The spaniel is the only one who rides in the Jeep, the other two are relegated to the truck.

I use a "Lint Roller" to get the golden retriever's hair out of the carpet. I still vacuum, but it works great on getting the hair off the carpet. Now I just keep one in there all the time.

Mine is an American Bulldog/? (maybe hound) mix......He sheds like he thinks its a gift I want. Stuff is like velcro and sticks EVERYWHERE. Duct Tape works and so does the shop vac after EVERY trip. He relagated to the back as well but his hair manages to get on the front grill!!!! I also have seat covers from Cabellas for the two front-I took the rear out. Dog Hair!!!---the stuff is amazing.

That is a beautiful dog.

I am planning and planning my course of attack, a I know this situation is coming like a freight train.

I have two goldens and a Labrador retriever, and I am a dog trainer fo a living. My current mazde is lint brush.

I may go with no carpets for a while and ust floor mats, until I either can afford line-x or have time and nohow to Monstaline it myself.

And perhaps one day replace the cloth with leather or some other fabric thatis not as hair sticky as the cloth.

Please keep this going for any suggestions folks might have.

Thanks

Oh, when does shedding season ever end for golden retrievers? I read someone write shedding season, I my mind said "there's a season"?

Good luck to all.

I agree 100% with this thread. The dog hair is impossible to get out. Masking tape works good also. The Seeing Eye puppy in training loves the Jeep though!

I had the same problem with my 08. When I got the 2012 I bought a roll of the plastic film you roll out on carpet to make a walkway and applied it to the back of the back seats and the cargo area. As well as up the sades. I alway have a mat over the top of that along with a blanket of some sort.
It may not be a perfect fix buy it sure the heck helps.

Nobody's mentioned the obvious: shave the dog bald.

He just gave me a "look."

GET A POODLE!!

They don't shed. They may not be the most manly dog, though.

Only manly dogs for me.
Also find that using armorall is a bad idea as it seems to raelly attract the hair.

My 90# yellow lab has been going to work with me since before the Jk, he still does and gets mud and hair all over(my problem not his)...our routine is to come home every day, pull out the shop vac and the wipe down rag(cleaned with bleach, every other day) and vac the JK every day after work...doing it this often, takes only about 10-15 min.

My lab is my best buddy...he will always be with me, mess or not.period.

Half the reason I just bought my Rubicon was so I could take the dog with me... I just came back from another two hour trip with him. The Jeep is covered in hair and I'm covered in hair. He lost so much on this short trip, I dunno how the dog is still covered in hair. It's frustrating. This time, I confined him to the back and at least most of the mess is back there.

I just came from a car where I'd have it detailed almost every week. I kept it spotless. I promised myself that I wouldn't baby the Jeep like that, but it's gonna kill me to see it covered in hair. I guess I'm gonna baby it after all lol.

And yeah, heck yeah...great idea. I don't know if she's interested in swapping interior panels, but mine are barely a week old. I'd LOVE to swap my tan for black.
