Maybe we should start a separate thread on the difficulties of removing dog hair from the interior to help Greg out.

John, that is actually one of the main reasons we went with leather seats and leather/vinyl panels thoughout instead of cloth. We do have a cloth gaucho, but I cover it with a sheet whenever the dogs are along for a ride and/or we are camping.

Ditto. We picked the leather,the vinyl, even the loncoin flooring because of our four furry kids. But we still have to keep lint rollers handy in the SMB.

We went with leather for the same reason. Two yellow Labradors = about four bushels of yellow hair / day. When we get home, I blow out the entire interior with a leaf blower then the shop air hose (175 PSI)

For my fabric bench seat, I use a dog brush. The kind with about 500 stainless steel wires on a angle. A damp rag also works. John K warned us that the fabric we picked was a hair magnet. He was right.

Thanks for the replies,love the pics! My guess is he will probably rack out on the couch since it has a view on the pass side.

Re: Where does your dog ride?

Hey Saline, how was the weekend?

This thread has been dead for a while but maybe someone, like me, will read it again. In reference to the removal of dog hair we made sure we found our SMB with leather. Then to remove the rest of the dog hair I use the on board air compressor. It removes hair from the dash, carpet, seats, and floor. It even helps remove the Moab sand quickly. I rarely vacuum the floor becasue the air compressor removes so much dog hair and sand. Highly recommended.

Re: Where does your dog ride?

We're building a D ring into the floorboard just behind the center console. Dog wears a car harness designed to attached at a seat belt. We plan to rig some sort of mechanism to attach her harness to the D ring.

While she might be happier roaming on a couch, she could easily become a 65-lb projectile in the event of an accident.
