Muddy paws, pet hair and drool .... oh my. Just thinking about any of those things in the backseat of my new pickup truck is enough to make me quiver. Let's also not forget this scenario either. You're driving down the road and all of a sudden, you have to slam on your brakes. The last thing you ever want to see happen is your beloved bird dog go sliding off the back seat and down onto the floor with your shotguns, potentially injuring them...and the dog.
The folks at Duluth have come up with yet another great solution and they call it the Scout Seat Saver. Simply loop the adjustable straps around your headrests and you are good to go. The center of the cover has a great quilted area so that your bird dog has a more comfortable place to hang out. When the cover gets dirty or just needs a good cleaning, you can easily throw it in the wash. I have owned one of these for almost a year now and I absolutely love it. So if you're like me and want to keep your dog safe but your backseat protected, get yourself a Scout Seat Saver.
It also doubles as a barrier between curious eyes in the parking lot and your firearms if you want to stow them on the back floor board.
