Even the most well behaved dogs can lose their minds when it’s travel time. The whirlwind of sights, sounds and smells rushing by ignites their natural instinct to investigate what’s going on outside every window—including yours. Keeping your best friend out of your lap just got a lot easier with the Motor Trend Mesh Pet Barrier.
Unlike traditional pet barriers that look more like the cages in the back of police cars, the Motor Trend Mesh Pet Barrier forms a subtle yet effective wall between your front seats. Connecting rapidly to your headrest using quick release buckles, it blocks everything from bichon frises to boxers from bounding up to the front of your vehicle. Not only does it make your drive safer by reducing distractions, but it also keeps your auto cleaner by localizing the shedding and slobbering to the back.
Designed to be both sturdy and lightweight, the Motor Trend Mesh Pet Barrier is built from nylon mesh with removable fiberglass crossbars. It takes mere minutes to install or remove this mesh dog barrier, and it’s backed by a 1-year warranty.

The product itself is fine, especially for smaller dogs. For medium plus dogs they can climb over the sides next to the door. I considered the bars to solve that issue but my newer(not new) car has headrest DVD screens so that doesn't work either that I can figure out. Then again, most front seat covers don't work either running down through the post of the headrest and seats. I drive my cars until they wear out and try to protect them, but I am new at the dog thing having had cats before.

I like the barrier it was light weight and would have been great if it fit. It did not have enough length at the top loop to fit in my rav 4 from head rest to head rest. having said that, it was easy to put together.

Because of the center console, it doesn't fit well in a Subaru outback. I installed it, but the fit is awkward, and my standard poodle discovered she could still jump over it.

Will this pet barrier fit a 2006, Chrysler Town & Country LX?

Hi Donna, this is a universal product designed for most vehicles. It measures 22" wide by 26" tall, so as long as the space between your seats is less than that, it will fit.flag Accept Answer
