Dog proof seat covers?

Looking for some good fitting, water, dirt, big dog, proof seat covers. I have a 99' Sahara, with the deluxe high back seats, with the green cloth inserts. Took the back seat out, so just for the fronts? Thanks everyone, any thoughts?

Look for Best top seat covers, the PO had them in when I bought the Jeep. One of my favorite parts about my Jeeps interior!

I absolutely love my bestop seat covers but by themselves they would not be dog nail resistant. I put a blanket it on and I take my rott anywhere.

Trek armor for sure. Absolutely indestructible. Molle bags and pockets. USA made. Hand made. Stood up to my 3 dogs, 10s of thousands of miles, and cross country move from Ohio to Texas with said dogs. Had them on my jk. You won't be disappointed.

I poured coffee, pop, ice cream, mud from dog park etc. Wipes right off. I did pretreat with scotch guard. Stood up to dogs scratching at it etc. You get what you pay for, and you pay a lot.

trail gear seat covers.

http://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabel...&gclsrc=aw.dsI have been running cabelas trail gear covers and love them!
There a pretty good low cost cover. I have a Siberian husky and the hair just doesn't stick to them.
They lace up and you can get them nice and snug so there is no flapping or anything when the tops off.
I have gotten all kinds of stuff on em and just machine wash them with no problems.
They were actuly already in my jeep back when I got it. I will be ordering a new set simply because for whatever reason the PO. Put the black+gray cover in. I am going to order the black/tan to match my Sahara's interior. .

I just got some coverking ballistic nylon covers. Quadratec is having a deal so you get the back cover free. They are marketed as being tough enough for people with kids, pets, or construction workers.

Just another option to consider.

I'm just wondering what most people do about seat covers? Do they get them to preserve their seats, or do most people buy seat covers after their original seats are worn and ripped and use covers to hide them?

I have a 97 Sahara that I bought 6 months ago from the original owner and she kept everything immaculate. I'm thinking of seat covers, but I doubt any will be as comfortable or look as good as the current Sahara seats in it right now.

Just my opinion, but I think they're good for preserving your original seats. I wish I had gotten seat covers for my truck when it was new. I'll be getting covers for my '99 Tj at some point because they're pretty worn.

Yeah I'm kind of thinking the same thing. I'll probably kick myself for not getting covers if I somehow ruin these by not covering them

I just got my front ones reupholstered. I was on the fence whether to do that or buy PRP seats, but they rebuilt mine from the frames up for about the same price as the new ones in my choice of fabrics. I feel like since I spent the $'s, I might as well be the one using them and not saving them for someone I don't know that I may sell to in the future. Thinking about having the back one done to match.

Those look great and you make a valid point about why save the seats for someone else to enjoy. Hmmmm, now I'm back to being confused again.

I got mine (Bestop) so that I won't have monkey butt when it rains and the top is down. The original seats are in so-so condition so it wasn't so much to preserve them.

I have two kids and a golden retriever that will be riding in my new JK. I don't want them ruining the seats. I was looking for some good covers when I found this thread. I just ordered the Trek Armor covers for both front and back. I'll try to remember to post an update when I get them, but they look great in the pictures. Hopefully they'll save me from claw holes and spilled drinks, ketchup, etc.

I might have to go check these out
In May I'm going from Chicago to The ozark mountains for vacation with a lab and a husky/Shepard mix in the back seat so I definitely want to cover up my nice pretty blue seats lol oh and I can't wait to see the dog hair x_x

I would def. recommend you a company that my boys are dealing with. Check them out: ProSeatCovers. They're manufacturing custom fit seat covers for cars and trucks and they have A LOT of different fabrics (Neoprene, Camo: Realtree, Fishouflage, ATACS, Mossy Oak, Natural Gear etc...).
I've used some Natural Gear seat covers in my JK and some Realtree Max 4 in my Colorado truck - def. recommend this brand .

I've had my Trek Armor sear covers for a couple months now, and I love them. Yes they were expensive, and they were a bit of work to get on the seats, but dog hair comes right off, they seem to be very durable, and the dried juice I discovered spilled on the back seat cleaned up easily.

I should probably add that I recently discovered that my daughters, ages 7 and 11, don't like my Trek Armor seat covers. They're scratchy or something like that. I still love them, so they're staying. lol

I've got some in my pickup, they are tuff, if you spill something it beads up, had them for close to a year and no stains. One drawback is they don't fit well. They are I guess what I would call a little baggy. I believe it even says that in the description. I bought them for the type of work I do and it works well for that
