Solution to limit dog hair

When we travel with our dog, we lower the back seats and put movers blankets down, to limit cleanup of dog hair. This would not fix the problem of the dog hair on the backs and sides of the front seats. So our solution is then when "Fido" goes with us, we put trash bags over both front seats, and presto,,,,, no more clean up of dog hair on the front seats.
Before doing this, it would take me an hour to remove the dog hair after every trip. Now, just remove the bags and no cleanup.

Mooney thanks for posting about this! I have this issue too. I wish my dog didn't shed because I really enjoy bringing him with me on trips but he just sheds a ton. He is a Jack Russel Terrier and white. His hair gets everywhere.

When you put trash bags over the seats you are talking about black trash can bags? Are you sitting on them while you drive or does it just go on the upright portion of the seat? Are the bags annoying blowing in the wind or uncomfortable to sit on? Thanks for your thoughts!

I have a Beagel/Jack Russell mix and she sheds a ton as well. White hair all over the place. I said screw it and put red leather in. Can't even notice it on the seat and it brushes right off.

Another solution - get a poodle/poodle mix, they don't shed.

I put our dogs create in the back. Helps keep dog hair down. My dog is also a bit of a nervous rider and constantly walks around.

thanks for the tip. I just went camping this past weekend and I had to use my handy dandy hair picker upper and finished it off with my dyson vacuum.

Just on the uprights. Black bags. . Not on the area you sit on. No discomfort or wind blowing problem. If you did not wear a shirt, it might feel funny on your back resting against plastic.
Hair cleanup is zero. Just remove the bags when you travel without your dog. One hour of cleanup after a trip was a major pain, and our Jeep sat in the garage a lot, because we take our pet with us 75% of the time, so we were using another car where the dog hair was not a problem. Leather seats are a simple wipe down. Now we can travel more with our Jeep, without the pain of added cleanup time.

We've got an Alaskan Malamute. We just learned to live with it. Way too much fur

I let our Golden Retriever ride in the Jeep once a couple years ago and I'm still finding hairs stuck in the carpet. Once we enough. My Wire Fox Terrier rides with me frequently, no shed no problem.

I just got the same one for 2015. I love it contours almost perfectly to the bench in the back of the 2-door and no flopping when driving at speed with the top down. Cannot recommend it enough.

Same for my Siberian Husky, Nanuk. He's a red and white and his hair goes everywhere. Once or twice a year when I'm detailing the interior I'll take about 30 minutes and do the hand rub all over the carpets. It basically pulls most of his hair out of the carpet and "weaves" them together into a type of Husky yarn. I've joked before about making a sweater out of the crap. Other than that the best remedy I've found is 10 miles on the interstate doing 70mph while running doorless/topless. As stated before, I don't envy anyone behind us...

I gave up...
the fur (and mud) won...
I wish I could say it was a fair fight, or even close... but it wasn't...
I only have 2 little GSD puppies, together they don't add up to one husky, but still the fur overwhelmed all defenses.

my two "white" shepards (brother and sister)

not sure why I have an uncontrollable need to put "white" in quotes though?

In the back of our JKUR we have a movers blanket, then a piece of plywood, placed over the cracks, so paws do not get caught, then another movers blanket. The only place the hairs go is on the back of the front seats. So the trash bags are a cheap fix that works.
The movers blanket repels water that splashes out of his water dish. Easy cleanup.
Now the only thing I need to do after a trip is to clean the inside back windows of nose prints, and any drool on the inside doors.

Of course, if I lower one of the back windows, I will need to remove the drool from that window back to the back of the Jeep. Sheeeeeeesh....

Looking at our dog's happy face while the wind is pushing out his cheeks, makes the cleanup worth it.

We have kids, they are really good at vacuuming and then get allowance to do it....takes about 60-90 minutes and basically no more hair....as long as they keep on it.....we have a white American bulldog and a white boxer.....

Not advocating child labour lol but I like this better then hearing bags flap around while topless 😀😀

Some WhatLost, We have an all White Siberian Husky, wife's dog. She creates what we call TumbleKaleys in the house and fur thats been coast to coast and even showed up a my son's post in Afghanistan....that's even if we brush her every day. Right now the only dog that gets in my Jeep is my black lab, she matches the interior ....We own stock in lint roller company, at lease it feels like it. Costco has them in cases for us...Attachment 2342209

Lint Roller

I buy the lint rollers in bulk from Costco. The vacuum just seems to take forever. I have a Corgi and although small in stature she is big in both personality and SHEDDING! I use the tear off lint rollers after a quick swipe or two with vacuum to pick up sand etc. and voila!! Clean Jeep. On a side note: I tried just directly vacuuming the dog before and although she did enjoy it (yes she is strange) it actually helped for about ten minutes!
