Volkswagen Dog Guards Review

Welcome to my special post abut dog guards. This week are are going to talk about different dog guards for Volkswagen cars. My review is based purely on my opinion and I’m opinion and some reviews that I found on the internet. I’m not trying to push any brand on particular Volkswagen cargo barrier further. But I guess that’s for you to decide. The pet barriers discussed in this review and comparison will for the following models: Beetle, Bora, Caddy, Crafter, Eos, Fox, Golf, Golf Plus, Jetta, Lupo, Passa,t Phaeton, Polo, Scirocco, , well here goes:

saunders dog guard for VWSaunders
Saunders have a very interesting range of Volkswagen dog guards. They are quite affordable on price, sell both through ebay and their website. Saunders have 2 types of pet barriers Tubular and mixed Wiremesh/Tubular. Please keep in mind that the last time I checked Saunders didn’t have a dog guard for all models of VW.

 

travall vw dog guardTravall
Travall have the widest range of dog guards for VW. Even Volkswagen themselves don’t provide such a variety. Travall dog guards are slightly more expensive than Saunders, but that’s because they are pure Wiremesh type. Which means that you won’t be dissapointed in terms of quality. Travall dog guards are sold though amazon, ebay, home website, and variety of partners.

vw oem dog guardOEM Partition grilles
It’s quite wierd that VW call dog guards as Partition Grilles, furthemore the website itself says PaRTion grilles. So I’m not sure if that was a type or they did it on purpose. The OEM dog guards are quite expensive as the price vary from £150 to £300. But if you like the original parts and accessories then you can’t go wrong.

 

barjo vw dog guardBarjo
Barjo have quite a narrow range of Volkswagen pet guards but they definitely stand for quality. Just like Travall they provide a high security and safety for your pets with a Wiremesh type of dog barrier. You can find plenty of those sold on gumtree, ebay and amazon. The price range may vary between £80 and £200 depending on a particular Volkswagen model.

 

Please come back soon for more information on model specific dog guards, as within the next week I will be posting information about dog guards for Ford, Audi and Bmw, so please stay tuned. And as always your comments and feedback are much appreciated.  If you want to find out a little bit more about dog guards you visit our dog guards review page for additional info.

Jack Russell Survives a Trip in Car Engine

Jack Russell Survives a Trip in Car EngineSome interesting news from Salford this morning: Jack Russell Survived a Trip in Car Engine whilst being stuck there for 12 miles. BBC has reported that a three months old Jack Russell puppy – Betty Boop has climbed up the engine of the neighbours car from beneath the vehicle and stuck there. After that she had a 12 miles trip at a speed up to 50mph.

It’s really a miracle that Betty hasn’t received any injuries during this trip. As is now returned to the owners. Know this is a really great story which you unfortunately don’t find a lot in UK. But let just hope that the amount of good news we hear from BBC will increase over time 🙂

The miracle video of how Jack Russell Survived a trip in car engine can be found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-26445887

How do you call a thing that goes in the back of your car?

dog guardLately on the internet I found a lot of questions like how is the device called that goes in the back of your car, or how is the device called that separates the boot of your car. Or even how do you call a device that keeps your dog or pet safe in the boot of your car.

It’s quite an interesting topic because generally speaking this device is called a dog guard, but many people call it differently depending on their associations and country of residents.  So here is the full list of how people generally call the same kind of device.  Here is a list for your for most common names for a device that separates the boot of your car from the rest of the car:

dog guardDog Guard – Dog guard is a term mostly used in UK. Possible variations of this keyphrases are: pet guard and dog guards. Dog guard is a device that will keep you pet safe and secure in the boot of your car. You can find more information about this device variety at our dog guards page.

Pet Barrier – Pet barrier is term mostly used in USA. Possible variations of this keyphrase is dog barrier. Pet barrier has the same kind of purpose as dog guard.

dog guard with a dogCargo barrier – Now this is an interesting term because it looks pretty much like the the standard dog guard but has a different purpose. It is designed to keep your cargo in the boot. And usually is much more solid peace of equipment. Generally speaking a cargo barrier (wiki link) can be used for dogs, pets and animals, but dog guards and pet barriers are not designed to hold your cargo in place, especially during an accident.

So hopefully this will help you a  little bit more with your research. If you are looking for a really high quality dog guard you will find a wide range of vehicle specific ones at Travall. Thank you for reading this article, please don’t forget to leave your comments. 🙂

Choosing the best Dog Guard for your Car

Dog GuardDog guards can become quite valuable and unique when you are about to move your beloved pet in the car. To be fair, even though this car accessory is called dog guard it creates a safe environment in the car even if you transport baggage instead of animals.

What are dog guards designed for?
Basically, dog guards are designed to prevent any kind of item movements from boot of your car to front. If you are in the middle of an emergency car stop – none of your items in the boot will fall over your head from the back of the car.  This makes even more sense when your transporting a living creature (a pet), like a dog for example.

When choosing your Dog guard you have to consider a few serious points:

– Is this dog guard going to fit my car? Is it vehicle specific?
– Is it a high quality material and will keep me and my pets safe at all time?
– What is the material that it is made of?
 – Will I be able to set it up on my own, in other words – is it a DIY accessory?
– Will I have to modify my vehicle for it to fit?
– Is there a proper installation instruction for my dog guard?

All of those and some other questions should be asked before you consider on buying a dog guard accessory. For more information about different types of dog guards please visit the section at the top navigation of this website.
