|My fiance and I sold our little Kia Rio and bought a GMC Jimmy instead, as we have a baby on the way VERY soon, plus the two dogs, and a large stroller.
The plan was to get a SUV so that we can have the dogs separated from the seats by a barrier in the back. This is mostly for the safety of baby when he's born and riding in the SUV in the backseat in his carseat. Charlie is typically good about staying off carseats, unfortunately, he's not good about not climbing all over when it comes to spotting another dog - he goes nuts, barking and trying to get to that side of the vehicle(he NEVER comes up front though, we don't let the dogs up front with us ever). And... well, Ria is just an energetic puppy that doesn't realize that she is capable of hurting people.
SO... To keep everyone happy and safe, this is our plan and there's PLENTY of room back there for them.
Unfortunately, it's one of the very few places in our vehicle that is fabric(the seats are all leather), which means if we want to take the dogs out hiking, or swimming, or what-have-you, and they get muddy, wet, or dirty, it will get into that fabric in the back and smell up our vehicle like dog. Not exactly ideal, lol.
I'm thinking about getting one of those rubber mat liners for the back of the SUV. Any thoughts on this or ideas on specific brands that are good? We live in Canada for anyone wondering. And any suggestions on barriers too?
