Shedding dog in back seat.

Decided to try something different this time to save me several hours of
cleanup of dog hair. This dog is a non-stop shedder and it gets imbedded in
the carpet.

I bought a roll of adhesive plastic carpet protector at Menards and covered
from the back of the front seats and up the lifted rear seats.

Took about 20 minutes to completely clean up all the hair. What was
remaining after a quick vacuum was picked up by rolling the used plastic
into a ball will the adhesive side out and dabbing it about to pick up the
rest.

I really didn't think it would stay put for the entire trip but I was surprised at how well it was stuck when removing it.

Wow, I've never seen adhesive plastic carpet protector used in that way. makes sense -- nice job! Just be sure to pull it up before too long as they usually have a max time you can leave them down.

our dogs would HATE that and rebel.The plastic would stick to thier feet and cause territorial disputes! I just gutted the back seat area and covered it with carpet. No doggie disputes and the hair vacumes right up if you get it after each trip.

That looks like it does the job nicely!
I found a cushioned work mat at Sears that was 48" x 96" and cut that for the floor. Then use a fitted single sheet on the folded up back seat. After the trip we pull the sheet out sweep the floor and just have to hit the backs of the front seats with the vacuum/lint roller. Works pretty good for us and the kids like it!

DreiHunde: Love your White German Shepard. We have one too, Schultz, he just turned two. Looks ferocious but is the biggest chicken in the world. And man, can he shed. I had no idea when we got him what we were in for. I am definitely going to try the carpet protector or the fitted sheet. Thanks for the ideas!

Tried the fitted sheets and the hair worked its way through. No hair cuts for my pup. Brittany, mostly white which shows real nice on the black carpet.
