Quick question - does anyone have any recommendations for a dog guard that can be fitted without having to screw holes into the shelves? I'd rather not drill into the lease car...

Also, does anyone have a dog guard and full boot liner fitted (one that covers the backs of the rear seats AND extends over the rear bumper) in combination?

I can find something suitable when I look online but would appreciate if anyone has already been there and done it so I can be sure it'll all fit ok.

This is only for a smallish dog but he's a hairy little sod and previous experience tells me the back of the rear seats get all marked over time. No way am I letting him in the seated area with half (fake) leather!

I've not got it for a dog, but I have just got the boot liner and bumper protector from Boot Buddy.

The liner fits quite nicely and I actually use the bumper protector to fold up over the load (tow out gear for a glider) to protect the rear door.

Thanks for the replies...this forum is great :).

Snailofsatan....can't tell from that picture if that one fits without any need to screw holes although it does look pretty much the same as the Guardsman one which Earl_H linked to.

Earl_H - what's that bracket at the top? Definitely no screwing required? Think I'll get one of those if that's the case.

PaulC - Looks ideal, might go for that as well. Definitely need one to cover the rear bumper. My last car got the bumper scratched to bits by my dog clambering in and out.

This is all for the girlfriends dog as well, hope she appreciates it! It's either that or restrict the doggie days out to the Toyota Aygo...

As Mike says I have the VW pet pack. Pleased with it thus far. The guard is well made and an ingenious fit without any need for screws or damage to interior. Takes a minute or two to remove or install and is nice and secure once in place. Two large dogs (Golden Retriever and a Black Lab) squeeze in.

The boot liner is a very solid dense foam rubber with a smooth surface. Not solid rubber like I was expecting. It isn't maybe a durable in the very long term but I do use a dog mat on top of it anyway. Used on its own I can see it getting torn/worn over time by both dog claws and heavy/angular load items in the load area. No issues with this so far but I've been careful.

The bumper film is practically invisible and reasonably thick which I like. It does mark but I do use a towel, that I keep in the noot for drying wet dogs, between the dog mat and floor and going over the bumper when loading and unloading.

Backs of the rear seats and wheel arch covering will probably be an issue over time. Currently hoovering them occasionally.

Hi Mike, I have an LS7wl, and I fly at Dunstable. I landed at Bidford once, many years ago!

Hi
The thing in the middle top is an L shaped fitting that stops the guard moving forwards, no marks or drilling - you can see a nob that allows it to be removed.

Yes the shelf fits with it in place, it also does not rattle (for me at least) so I tend to leave it in place.

Lastly at 45 kg if anyone wants to try to fit HER under a shelf can I video it? Her brother is significantly larger if you want a real challenge :)

Cheers Earl

P.S. there's a picture on one of my posts but I have no idea how to find it and post a link

Do the VW genuine dog guard and the Guardsman ones allow you to have the parcel shelf in place with the dog guard?

Yes, the Guardsman allows the shelf to fit with the guard in place.
