RMackner The carpet in the jk is like a magnet for dog hair I swear. I put my GSD in there the other day and spent like a hour getting all the hair out with tape :/.

Hilldweller I bought Coverking Ballistic Nylon : Custom car seat covers for on the job vehicles
Very tough.

But, most importantly, I bought them in the same color as the dog....
....and I try to wear pants in the same color as the dog....

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

legitposter Consider feeding your dogs high quality foods, or even home prepared. High quality diets cause most dogs to develop thicker fur and shed much much less. If brushed, some will never shed on their own.

I have 6 dogs in fact, and its hard to find hair/fur anywhere. It's an investment when paying for high quality food.

With that being said, none of them are allowed in our $35k wrangler. Ha, but sorry dogs. They have to go everywhere in the Compass...

dabolt55 I've got the Iggees also, works great.. We have three terriers, not really shedders but a little does happen. As far as our dogs, they stay inside everywhere.... My wife once said " That's why they call it Fur-niture, for the pets"....

OK, thanks GSDgirl. I was hoping that might be the case.

Now that is interesting. Trek Armor is local to me so I gave them a call. They specifically said neoprene was better for dog hair and that it would probably stick more to their seat material (polyester). The guy I spoke to must not have had dogs. I may have to re-consider these once I pull off the stupid Smittys.
Does anyone know if they're washable? And are they so tight that you'll never want to pull them off to wash them? (Catch 22).

Garyk My dog just has to walk past the Jeep and I find hair in it. I did get a cheapy cover from wally world but its too slick and my dog slides right off onto the floor if I stop too fast.
Dickies look like a better option..

The dog hair has worked into the covers but not so much worked thru to the seats themselves.
Not sure if this helps..............
I also have the Dickies covers and the hair just wipes away. A wipe or a lint roller or damp cloth it's gone. Love them!

GSDgirl X3 on the treck armor covers. I have a husky/shepherd mix and my black carpet is now white. It will come out in a couple of months, but the sears needed to be addressed first. Put the covers on and I can just brush the hair off. It is soo much better.

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!

Thanks! This is is the kind of feedback I was looking for.

Thanks to everyone who responded. I don't want to clog the thread with too many direct replies, so I'll just say that you've had some great suggestions. I'm not obsessed with eliminating the hair (I'm resigned to a certain amount); I'm just having a problem with how much it's sticking to these seats -- and I'm entirely too lazy to do bi-daily cleanup. Plus the sticky rollers don't work well in cold temperatures.

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?

Thanks DjA. I will keep this in mind.

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.

And no, I'm not leaving him outside - his last owner did that during a hurricane.
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.

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.

2five22 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.
