Does anyone know where to get a decent dog guard made?

I have removed the back seat backs to make sufficient room for the mutt, and need some guards to fit just behind the front seats

Hi

Mini actually makes one !!

I have it for my Staffordshire pup. It hooks under the headrests, goes over and sticks onthe the side windows and tucks up and over the rear headrests.

hope this helps

Cheers

Yes, I would love the product you descibe. I have the black seat mat already but would love something to protect the front area.

hey Karen, how much was it? is it the black rubber/vinyl cargo cover thing?

It was about $350-ish and it's really good. Made from the black leather type materail. I'll take a pic and post in my gallery on the weekend. I'll even put my pup in to demo it :p

confused

thanks KS_cooper, but I'm confused - or you are! after much headscratching I think you must be describing a seat cover? I am looking for a metal railing/grating device to split the entire compartment to stop Mutley flying through the windscreen in an accident (or knocking my block off en-route to the windscreen!)

Red Devil,

I'm using this dog barrier and have had pretty good luck with it when carrying my two, 50 pound Dalmatians.

The one issue I've had with this barrier (or any for that matter) is that it can be knocked ajar if one my dogs bumps into it if I hit the brakes too suddenly. This happens because I still have my rear seats in place, and as a result the base for the barrier isn't very stiff. One thing that I did help solve the problem was to tie the top of the barrier to the rear seat handles on both sides of the interior roof with bungie cables. Now the barrier stays in place better.

You may not have this problem since you removed your rear seats and will have a more stable base. Another thing to look out for is that the edges of the barrier may be a little sharp; and when you install it in your MINI, make sure that you don't scratch the plastic in the back of your MINI with the edges. I taped the edges with black electrical tape to avoid scratching (of course I learned about this after putting a small scratch on the interior plastic).
