Dog drool

So I've been traveling with my dog more often and while she's finally past the vomiting violently all over my interior on every trip, she's been a fountain of drool.

I thought I had it handled with a little generic interior cleaner and a micro fiber, but I parked in the sun the other day and noticed all the leather looks like a hotel room in a blacklight... So what're all my fellow dog owners using to get out the drool splatters?

Never let it get in.
Border Collies also do not drool much.

Border collies drool like fountains... in my experience haha

This has been pretty helpful- not sure if youre able to have your seats down or not. I guess its utility is really dependent on that.

Thanks, looks a lot classier than the 3 crusty beach towels I've been using, I'll have to pick one up.

So pretty much the going strategy is avoiding slobber in the first place and I should just accept my seats look like a goth Jackson Pollock painting?

This is what I use in the back seat.
I do not use the cushions.
My Border Collies are Ladies. They do not drool.

My wife's car is the dog car. Mine is not.

No sense in ruining two cars.

Nothing to add here, other than Thank God my beagle does not drool. Her only problem is that she sheds. It's incredible how much a small 20 lb dog with short hair can shed.

My dog rides in my back seat regularly, and I would never let him in without a cover. I really like the hammock-style back seat cover. Covers everything from the back of the front seats to the back seat. Something like this.. lots of options out there:

https://smile.amazon.com/Hammock-Scr...dp/B0727Y5ZD7/

Sadly this doesn't take care of my biggest issue - all the hair that my husky/german shepherd sheds constantly. Some of that will stay on the cover, but it still goes EVERYWHERE. My neighbors must think I'm crazy with how often I'm dragging my shop vac out to vacuum my car. Still, it makes me feel a lot better about drool (he's not drooly in general but sometimes gets a stuffed kong for the ride.. very slobbery) and scratches, and luckily he's never had any kind of accident in the car, but if he did, it would be contained as well.

If only there was a way to prevent all the "nose art" on my back windows.
