Based just north of Boston, MA, Kurgo was founded after Kitter Spater adopted Zelda, a 70 lb hyperactive Plot hound mix. Since the Spater family traveled extensively with their dog, it was soon evident that something to keep Zelda from jumping up front was definitely in order! Using his design background, Kitter designed just what was needed and the Backseat Barrier was born.
Kitter and his brother, Gordie, worked hard to develop a personable company centered around products for active dogs and for dog owners who like to take their dogs along when they travel. The company endeavors to help solve all those problems that so often ensue when hitting the road with dogs.
We all know that dogs moving around freely in cars are a big safety hazard, not just to themselves, but also to the driver and passengers. Kurgo's Backseat Barrier offers dog owners the perfect solution! Designed to keep everyone safe by creating a soft wall or shield between the front and back seats of the car, the company's Backseat Barrier blocks that little space above your center console, keeping your dog safely confined to the backseat, so if the vehicle stops suddenly, he won't hurtle forward. Also, it will help to prevent an excitable pup from moving between the front and back of the vehicle. Using the Backseat Barrier, your dog can still sit and look through the mesh top and you can reach behind to pet him.
Great for long trips or a quick drive around town, this wonderful product fits most vehicles, from compacts to SUVs. It's extremely simple to install and remove, although it looks so good, you might never want to remove it! Also, as an added bonus, the front seat stays free from dog hair!
Black with tan detail, the Backseat Barrier is made from 60 denier nylon.
