Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

It’s fun to take your dog on outings, but a vehicle is no place for an unrestrained and excited pet. A loose dog in a car can be a danger to itself, to you, and to everyone on the road if you are distracted. Car pet barriers help to keep your dog under control. When shopping for one, verify how easy it will be to install, and how adjustable it is (to fit a wide variety of cars). Is it made of mesh, so you can see both your dog and any traffic behind your car? Does it offer built-in protection from scratching and any pet accidents? Some barriers even have built-in pockets to store pet toys, snacks, and other items.
