‘Good enough to not irritate your pet’

Your pet may be allergic to a lot of fabric types; rough texture fabric may even erode hair out of their fur.

While choosing a protective gear for your car seats ensure that you buy a product that is made of High Quality

Fabric. Avoid buying anything made of synthetic materials to ensure your furry companion is happy, cool and relaxed, even on long drives; a cotton protective care shall be a wise choice.

‘Hygiene is two third of health’

Pet Seat Cover is that they should be easy to clean to ensure high hygiene standards; prefer the washable material

over any fancy material to guarantee that you can wash away all the dirt and germs that your pet carries along with them.

‘Durability is a part of what makes a Great Product’

Pets, especially dogs, have a tendency of scratching the surface with their paws before settling in.

You should always choose a durable fabric product to ensure that the product lasts long. You may check the durability by scratching the pet seat cover with your car keys if there is no damage the product is worth buying.

‘Keep it simple and respect time’

Too complex products may take a lot of time in installation, which may influence you to avoid using it.

If it is simple to use, you will never compromise with the health of your pet, car and yourself.

‘Know if your pet is your co-pilot, a boss or the naughty dude’

Your pet will travel with you basis how you have trained them, how you have raised them; your product selection greatly depends on this factor. If your pet likes to sit like a boss on the rear seat opt for the rear seat protector, if it likes to sit alongside with you while you drive opt for a front seat protector or if your dear companion is a playful creature and likes to do what it likes, opt for a hammock rear seat protector.
