Dogs are man's (and definitely woman's) best friend and we take them everywhere we can. To get them to fun destinations a vehicle is usually involved and with dogs being dogs things can get pretty dirty. Let's say you take a trip to the dog park and your dog is completely filthy after romping around with his buddies in the mud. You look at your dog, you look at your car. A towel on the seat isn't going to cut it this time. What's a dog parent to do? Thankfully 4Knines® has you and your car seats covered so you don't have to fret over muddy pawprints.
4Knines® was started by Jim and Maggie with their two Dobermans, Ares and Ana. There wasn't a car liner that could stand up to their pups so they created their own! I have heard about 4Knines for a couple of years thanks to other pet bloggers and was so excited to meet them this year at BlogPaws. I got to see their liners in person and I was impressed. Thankfully we got to work with them and test out their Fitted Rear Bench Seat Cover.
On the package, it states that the car seat cover has a non-slip backing with seat anchors, heavy-duty waterproof material, a lifetime warranty, and installs in less than 40 seconds. Plus, with every unit sold $1 is donated to the ASPCA.
One thing I am not too happy with is that it is made in China. I know it is cheaper to produce things overseas, but making it in the U.S. would be a relief to pet parents. I did find this little easter egg left by Jim pretty amusing though.
So I have a 2003 Ford Focus (also known as the Mutt Mobile) and I cleaned it real nice for this review. Cleaning it took forever, but installation was very quick!

The fabric is really nice and thick. High-quality and durable. Usually things that are waterproof are slick, but this is a nice combination of comfortable and tough fabric. So let's test it out!
I took Jada to our local dirty place which is a lake with a lot of ducks! She had a blast smelling all the smells and wading in the water.
By the time we got to the car Jada was mostly dried off so not a lot got on the liner. What did get on the liner was easily cleaned off. You would want to spot clean 4Knines liners and if they do get super dirty you can put them in the washing machine.
When I didn't have dogs in the backseat and instead had people, I didn't have to take the liner off or anything and my guests actually told me how comfy it was to sit on compared to no liner! Gotta love that quilted fabric.
In a nutshell...
- 4Knines® was created by Jim and Maggie because they couldn't find a durable car liner for their Dobermans
- The material is waterproof, durable, and washable
- Installation is very quick
- There are many styles of liners to choose from. From your front seats to your back they can cover it!
- You can find 4Knines car seat covers online at Amazon.com
I really like the quality of this 4Knines® car liner! The fabric is durable, yet comfortable and easy to clean. Since I have started using it, I haven't had any problems and my car is protected. I can see this being in my car for a very very long time and through many adventures. It is so nice to not have to worry about getting my car covered in dirt and dog hair because all I have to do now is wipe it all away!
Update: With Fezzik going with us on car rides this has been a lifesaver! He drools and just in general, big dogs make big messes so this is highly recommended for all big dog owners!
