Dog Hair

About to take delivery of a 2016 hard Rock. In our 2013 Rubicon, the backside of the rear seats is like a dog hair magnet. I'm assuming this hasn't changed. Has anyone replaced this bit of carpet or covered it with something else.

Bartact seat covers, I have hairy German shepherds and the dog hair comes off the seat covers easily.

Was hoping not to have to cover the whole back seat, just the backing carpet. I do like the Bartact cover though, especially with the MOLLE webbing.

CanvasBack Cargo liners are pretty nice.

After just one ride, Kymber (my GSD) has pretty much shed the equivalent of a puppy all over the back seat/floor. And she gets raked/brushed daily.

Trek Armor/Bartact seat covers (had them in my previous JKU) do protect the seats, but hair still gets everywhere. I had to use strong packing tape to clean it off the seats.

I haven't found anything to keep her hair from weaving itself into the carpet, other than putting in a pet hammock and pet bench covers over the entire back seat. I've even taken another pet cover, cut it up and used velcro to fasten it down over the back wheel wells.

Honestly, it's probably best if I just give in and look at the dog hair as just another mod.

Oh no.. I have a GSD too, and she hasn't yet been in my new Jeep. Now I'm scared.. lol.

I actually took the back seat out of mine (2 door) and put one of those cargo mats down.. maybe it will help some.

Do you use a furminator? We use that on our lab, and although he still sheds, it significantly cuts down the amount!

As I said earlier, I just ordered the liner from CanvasBack. Came across it from this thread started by hdrider: https://www.wranglerforum.com/f274/ca...er-129441.html
Haven't received it yet, but it appears to cover everything, including the sides. So I'm pretty hopeful!

Haha, maybe yours won't shed as much. Mine is 90 lbs., and probably half that is fur.

I do! That, and a rake-type thingie (not sure what they are called). She has a pretty thick undercoat. Sometimes I shape the fur that has come out into small GSD's when I'm done.

With some work I can get dog hair off of everything in the Jeep except that magic carpet on the back side of the back seats. I think I'm going to call a Katzkin installer and see what options they could do to replace it. Maybe Bract will sell me just the backside of their upright rear seat cover?

Even the mighty Furminator bows to the hair of the GSD.. I use it every day on mine.

I also use the tape method to get rid of the dog hair. I do a quick vacuuming to get anything loose out and then use copious amounts of cheap duct tape to get out the stubborn hair. I go to Harbor Freight and buy the cheap rolls of duct tape and they work just fine for this.

They might, wouldn't hurt to call and ask.

There's an untapped market here that I'm hoping someone will take advantage of soon.

Cover seat back with clear carpet protector they sell at home depot (for house showings). Its like HD saran wrap.

Clean seats and carpeting with a good condition rubber squeegee or wear rubber dish gloves and wipe it away.


You're welcomed.

Forgettable1 is right about the rubber gloves, it really pulls the hair out. I keep a set in my Neon and in the F-150 along with a vacuum and lint roller. It's still a PITA tho.

Use the furminator on the carpet!

I use the furminator on the carpet as well as the pooch. It does a pretty good job of removing most of the hair and the rest I take care of with a sticky link roller. We just throw an old bedsheet down when he is going to be in the vehicle.

German Shepard glitter is just a part of being a GSD parent. No matter how much you try, you're still going to find hair in the strangest places.

I've learned to accept it. My GSD has never been in my Jeep, but the luggage I use for work sits on the floor of my "game room" where she is frequently. As a result of this, I have found that I need to periodically vacuum out the back. It's takes some doing, but it can be done. I have an old house vacuum with a hand held mini brush type of thing, which I use along with the slanted nozzle.

Rubber squeegee are your friend. Use them on your seat/ carpet like a rake.

Judging from my clothes, it's also my favorite color to wear.

I got this for my 2016JKUR. It works with back seat in upright position and then if backseat is down it extends up to back of front seat. Comes with rubber mats to give the dogs sure footing and some comfort to lie on when I head to cabin.
So far it has really cut down on the amount of hair that gets on seat and carpeting.
it's easy to clean. Either vacuum the hair up or pull out and spray with hose to clean up any dirt or mud they track in.

A good company to deal with and great customer service.

Was looking into a cover of sorts for my dogs and came across the Rugged Ridge C3 rear cargo cover. Maybe worth looking into for about $160

I have a 1 yr old GSD and he sheds his whole coat in one ride I swear haha. This isn't about a seat cover but for those who find it hard to get the hair out of the seats and carpet use a small squeegee like they use to clean glass. The rubber pulls the hair right out and you can squeegee it into a pile and then vacuum that pile. Makes for a quick clean up.

Yup, im in the same boat as all of you dog owners. The hair get everywhere; especially when driving topless and/or doorless. I actually purchased the Canvasback kit for my 4door. It works, but you still have to vacuum it to get the hair off. I removed it when I installed the Aries cargo lid and never reinstalled it. If anyone here is interested in it, PM me and we'll work something out(oops, sorry for the hijack). I just succumbed to the fact that it's part of being a dog owner. My GSD actually looks very similar to Scrivah's GSD. All black with light beigh legs.

Dog hair. Live with it. We lost our best buddy January 25th and the dog hair is still around. Not a bad thing.
