Default Dog hair friendly seat covers

I want to start bringing my yellow lab to the boat more often now that she has calmed down a bit. My problem is I have a dark interior and every time I put her in the truck I have to vacuum it out because of the constant shedding. The bigger issue is the vacuuming is a pain in the arse because the dog hairs get stuck in the cloth seats. Can anyone recommend a dog hair friendly solution? Would neoprene seat covers make clean up easier?

Yes. Or some big towels or an old blanket.

You can also buy dog seat cover things.

I put twin bed fitted sheets on the seat and seat back. This keeps the sheets in place as the dog roams the back seat.

Back seat or front?

In back I have a one piece canvas type cover with a big white beach towel on top to catch the worst of it. Works great but still get a lot on floor. In front I have neoprene but dog isn't up there. If he was, I'd have canvas. Imho easier to get hair off canvas than neoprene plus, neoprene sometimes can get pulls when vacuumed.

Check out fosters and smith pet supplies. They make some fleece like couch covers that trap the hair and are easy to wash . We have several of them.

Leather. Done the same thing a while back.I went with clazzio seat cover and just wipe it down. Fairly cheap. I do bring a large town so old girl has something to curl up on.

I made this for my back seat. You put the seat up and then slip over like a pillow slip. The tail comes down accross the floor and tucks under front seat. I sewed in sleves for pool noodles to stuff under the front seats to hold in place. Works great.

I go to Home Depot and buy a furniture blanket each spring. About $25. It covers the entire back seat in my crew cab pickup. I lay it over the back head rests and tie around the headrest to keep it in place. Been going this for 10 years. For the front seats I have canvas dog products from Duluth Trading.

Any type of washable seat cover is good. The best thing I've found to get the dog hair off the seats (the hair that gets past the covers) is those lint rollers with the backwards masking tape. You can usually find them for about $1 each and they work great. You have to constantly keep peeling the tape until you get all the hair, but they work like a charm.

I have a cover from a Company named Kurgo. Works great.

Duluth Trading has some nice and relatively inexpensive seat covers for dogs.
