Dog back seat

Not sure if this has been posted before, I would like to take my dog with me out riding with the family, she’s a husky good size dog, is there anybody that has pictures or what they did to take a dog with them without tearing up the backseat. I have a 2019 Teryx 4.Thank you in advance

Lot of people take out seat bottoms and bolt a removable platform. Some even unbolt seat backs and install platform. Can easily switch back and forth by unbolting. This is my next project as well.

If ya don't want to change the buggy you can buy seat covers to protect the seats from puncture.

We have a T2 so our two dogs ride in the bed.

I asked something similar recently but it was for the front passenger seat in a Teryx 2. My original plan was to put carpeting over the stock seat which would give my ACD's feet better purchase and protect the vinyl but I'm not sure that's the best route. I am now thinking of using a piece of plywood covered by foam and carpet because I think that the thick foam in the seat would be a bigger problem for him to maintain stability. The bed is not an option for me because I want him next to me.

What about putting something where the feet go, so the dog doesn't fall forward, and has more room? Though in the back seat by themselves they could fall over board. Higher doors would be nice. Sitting on the floor would take care of this.

I picked up canvas seat covers at the local auto parts store. They are Dickies brand. About $25 per seat. They have held up pretty well with our dog, she is about 40lbs.

My Cattle Dog is 52 lbs. Although he's fit and just under 8 mo. old he seems unstable on the stock seat. I ordered him a harness prior to an upcomming three day UTV trip. He is new to riding so that might be the issue.

Is this the cover you have? Did it fit the Teryx seat well?

Here is a picture what I end up doing, I cut a board put carpet on it on both sides and used Velcro works great.

One member made this for his back seat. He sent me an email recently. I want to copy it but maybe it cover the cup holder etc. playwood, some fabric and foam with staples etc.

That and a pair of rear door vetnets (google them) they look nice!

I bought the metal to make a front dog seat but finally covered the front passenger seat with indoor outdoor carpet. It worked for our three day trip to Hatfield & McCoy and I even swapped dogs with my son to see how his dog would do in the Teryx. She is older and loves riding. It went well but the dogs clearly preferred my son's Wildcat. We think it has to do with the top of the Teryx door being about even with the seat. The Wildcat seat is angled more pushing the dog backwards towards the seat back and possibly making them feel more stable. The top of the door is also a good bit higher then the seat probably offering a sense of security. All this said, all I had to do was say "truck up" and either of them jumped in and was ready to go. I was very proud of my 8 mo. old ACD but I still plan to try creating a better system. Time will tell what it will be.

I have a 55 lb Border Doodle that likes to come with us. I've been looking for a solution that allows her to ride in the back in-between the two rear seats, as we often have 4 people when we ride. I took a 1/2' thick rubber mat that was the same width as the center console. I cut it to fit from the rear between the seats to the little cubby hole on the front console section I used for foam rubber to fill the gap between where the cup holders end and the front console. This made it so she could sit between the people in the back, and put her feet on the rubber mat. It worked, but I would like to make it better. I have a few ideas, but haven't been able to make a mock-up yet. I'll post again once I make some progress.

I made a plywood platform with 3inches of foam and some pleather type fabric from walmart. I put it behind the driver seat since I wont be able to reach him but the passenger would. I also just got my window safety nets im gonna slightly modifly to cover the gap in the roll cage to keep him inside. I want to trace it out and make one for the rear passenger seat too that way I have both just in case.
