Transporting dogs in the car can be quite the challenge. They yap, whine, and sometimes throw up before you’ve even fastened your seatbelt.
Tired of cleaning your car’s interior after every trip to the dog park or vet? Then protect your seats by making this DIY hammock!
Dog car hammocks are available in stores but they are usually thin and slippery. By making it yourself, you can customize yours to address these concerns. Thus, you have a dog hammock that fits your car and your dog perfectly.
It’s a very easy and simple sewing project despite its size. As long as you have a sewing machine, you can definitely make one in no time!
You can use old bed sheets or comforters for this project. You can also add some stuffing to make your pets extra comfortable while traveling. This would serve as an anti-skid material to help keep your pets safely in place.
To make your DIY dog hammock even better, you can add seat anchors under it. These are tabs of cloth with a short rod inside them that you can tuck in between the seats. These should be located at both ends of the hammock so that this way, the dog hammock can be set up more securely. Providing holes or slots for the seat belts would be great, too! ;)
With a dog hammock for cars, you never have to worry about pet fur all over the seats or scratch marks on leather cover seats!
Do you know anyone who needs this too?
