Pet Rider Review
Your pets are indeed a part of your family and you want to do everything you can to keep them happy. You get unconditional love from them after all and it’s up to you to ensure their wellbeing. And that often means taking them out for walks or to the vet or a grooming session at a pet salon. But do you dread the prospect of taking your dog in your car because of the mess he leaves behind with the dirt from his paws and hair he sheds? What about the nail marks that can ruin your expensive car seats? Now you can take your pet companion wherever you want to without worrying about your car seats because you have Pet Rider Seat Cover.

It’s one of those truly handy and useful products that every pet owner will love. Pet Rider Seat Cover is made out of heavy weight material; hence will protect your car seats come what may. This cover works for seats made out of different kinds of materials that can be quite hard to replace. It is also water proof and can be easily attached to the headrest of your backseat. It also has seat belt slots so that you can safely secure your pet in the back seat or the child seat. And if your dog often rides in the back, the mat can be laid out flat in the back of your SUV and you can fold it back easily for storage when not in use.

Pros and Cons of Pet Rider Seat Cover
Now it’s a well known fact that different manufacturers use materials like fleece, foam or heavy gauge twill to make pet seat covers, no such information is available when it comes to Pet Rider Seat Cover. Neither do manufacturers give you any information about the dimensions of the Pet Rider Seat Cover, which kind of leaves you in the dark.

Another important aspect the manufacturers of Pet Rider Seat Cover fail to shed light on is that you need a headrest to install it. Hence if your car doesn’t have a headrest, you are going to find it very difficult to install Pet Rider Seat Cover and will have to come up with an ingenious way for installation.

You might also have to put up with a strong odor due to chemicals, which is associated with these seat covers.

The lack of genuine reviews for Pet Rider Seat Cover can only mean two things; either most customers are yet to receive this product or it could well be that they are happy with the way it functions. After all, we have noticed that people don’t tend to write reviews for products that work well.

  1. I purchased one. Aside from the smell, it does NOT work on a back seat that does not have headrests. Without them to hold it, it slides right out of place. My dog has, for years, been trained to ride in the back seat, so what good is this product when you MUST have headrests to secure it, contrary to what the website advertises? I did not/will not order items like this on line-I bought mine at WalMart, which sells a wide variety of those “asseenontv” goodies. I’ve read reviews on Amazon that really focus on the obvious smell-there’s some question about the safety & I agree-they REEK!


  3. I just received my Pet Rider yesterday. Yes, it does stink, so I’m airing it out. I don’t have high hopes for the product, but I’m writing to complain about this company’s dishonesty, and I plan to complain to the BBB as well.

    1. They’re pushy, and they lie. When you order online, the company says (I’m paraphrasing here), ‘Don’t you want to “upgrade” to faster shipping?’ (Nope.) ‘Well, if you don’t, it will take 7-10 weeks for you to get it.’ (Not true; I ordered it on 6.29.12 and received it on 7.19.12.) ‘Don’t you want to stock up and order a whole bunch?’ (Nope.) ‘Okay, well, are you SURE you don’t want to upgrade to the faster shipping for $9?’ (No, I really don’t.) ‘We’ll send you a FREE gift that’s valued at $20!’ (Nope. All I got were some ads and discounts for more cheap junk from China. I didn’t want the free gift, but why lie about it?)

    2. They overcharge you. My emailed receipt showed that I paid $21.98 for the Pet Rider ($14.99 plus $6.99 shipping and handling). But when I checked my bank statement and received my order, they’d charged me $26.98 (they increased the price of the item from $14.99 to $19.99)! I called customer service, was on hold for several minutes, and talked to a rep who apologized about seven times, and claimed the company would refund me $6.99 (which is $1.99 more than I asked for). We’ll see if it shows up.

    3. A few people like this product; a lot of people don’t. I’ll try it out this weekend, and if it doesn’t work, I’ll have to call the company again to start the return process. Oh, joy!

    Keep complaining, everyone–this company is NOT honest.

  4. I bought a Pet Rider at the store to use on my couch. When I opened the package it had a strong odor which I thought would go away in a few hours. The smell didn’t go away even after several days and now my couch smells too. Plus the smell rubs into your hands, clothing and Pets. The Pet Rider is hanging out in the back yard hoping the odor will go away with airing outdoors. Now to try and figure out what to do about my couch.

    It’s made in China, I am worried it may have some toxic fumes and unfortunately it doesn’t list what it’s made of.

  5. The Pet Rider is nothing like the advertisement seen on T.V. or even the box cover. Doesn’t fit, smells toxic, dog won’t get near it. Don’t waste your money or TIME.

  6. I was looking for a seat cover that I could use when I take my dog out in my car. That’s how I came across Pet Rider and wanted to know more about its features and how it would work for me. But after going through several reviews sites like,,,,,,, I was none the wiser and hugely disappointed. I could barely find any relevant information on these so called review sites and their main aim seemed to be sales pitch. I expect reviews to be unbiased and to be able to give me helpful information about a product rather than sending me to another page selling the product through the “Buy Now” trap. It clearly seems nothing more than a ploy by the manufacturer to lure users; however I wasn’t going to fall for that. I am so glad I have found this site where I get an unbiased review of a product including this one, so that I can decide for myself if I want to buy a product now, later or never.

    • Unfortunately what you have experienced is not a one off thing and such fake review sites have flooded the Internet. They are abusing the search engine optimization methods by adding content that can trick the Search Engines into believing that they are offering genuine information. However as you have found out, it’s not the reality. We make sure the content on our site is genuine and are happy that users like you appreciate it.

  7. I went to their to see about their free shipping. I got a ”NOT found” when I tried to close this tab, it came back with a 15% discount offer on the order page. something didn’t feel right so I got off page completely & glad I did. Yep Dr Foster & Smith good alternative. Having a SUV, I keep the back seats up & laid some left over carpet in the back. The dog loves it, probably b/c it reminds her of home!

  8. I worry about the strong odor of the Pet Rider cover. Since it’s made in China which has sent poison dog food, baby food, and sheet rock; is this product safe since it gives off such a stink?

  9. Nothing makes my dog happier than to go for a ride in my car, windows slightly open gushing the air inside makes him very cheerful and active. However, his mess marks is quite a heavy duty post the fun ride. How much I try, cleansers and stain removers don’t help much. But thanks the revolutionary product Pet Rider, the super cool pet seat cover made of a hair and stain resistant material that’s so easy to clean. It installed within seconds in my car. I took the Pet Rider out of its box and began to install it, it was super quick. I just placed the straps around the headrests tucked it in pulled the seat belts through the slats in Pet Rider, which is great because the seat belts can still be used even with the Pet Rider installed. It works on bench seats, bucket seats and even fits perfectly in the back of large SUVs.

    I have found nothing Protect your vehicle’s interior from mud, fur, claws and odours. Pet Rider is a protective cover for your car seats; it is waterproof and protects seats against pet damage and odour. Since installing the Pet Rider we’ve been going on nightly rides with the puppy over the past few days and Pet Rider has made all the difference. No more cleaning up gobs of hair off my seats, no mess if his paws get wet, no smell and no scratches and damage to my seats.

    It used to take us hours to clean the backseat of my old car with all of the hair, not to mention the damage his nails could do to the leather seats. I felt bad for my dog not being able to do one of his favourite things but we just couldn’t let this car get damaged, beat up and stinky.

    • “But thanks the revolutionary product Pet Rider …..” revolutionary?? sorry but that sounds like a canned response by someone who may have some connection to this product. Revolutionary ….. naw I don’t buy it.

    • Sounds like you’re employed by that company by the language you use in your review. Its almost right off the TV ad-shame on you!

  10. Do not buy this Pet Rider product, lists as $14.99 then they charge you almost $50.00 after you place your order. When you call to cancel they keep telling you it hasn’t been processed, call back the next day, I called three days in a row, same story. The smell is horrible, even after removing pet rider from car the smell is impossible to remove. I have left windows open for over five days still can’t remove odor form car. Have left pet rider in the sun for over a week, smell is still there! Disgusting product, total scam!! Do not buy!!!!!!

  11. Chemical smell awful.just as bad after washing and air drying.wonder if it’s cancer causing.taking it back,not taking any chances.

  12. What material is the Pet Rider made from?

    Is it easy to install and remove?

    Does the Pet Rider cover smell?

    Does it have pockets?

    Does the Pet Rider stay in place?

    Does your dog slip over it?

    Is the Pet Rider really water proof?

    Does it work with all types of cars?

    How do you wash the Pet Rider Seat Cover? Is it machine washable?

    Is this the best Pet Seat Cover you have used?

    Is it durable?

    What are the dimensions of the Pet Rider Seat Cover?

    Does it really stand your pet’s claws?

  13. I am glad I bumped into this site when I searched the web before I placed an order for this “seems to be great” PET RIDER product.

    To all those who get scammed by this BAD DEAL, you should know that your credit card company will protect your payment to scammers such as this PET RIDER company. You may want to call the company and leave a request to make a return and cancel the order. Document this or even send this in writing if they publish an address.

    Then call your credit card company to dispute this charge and explain how you were taken advantage of and charged more than what they made you believe. This will require the company to send in a explanation how a $15 cost automatically becomes a much higher charge to your credit cared. This is a good example of the company committing FRAUD and they have to be shut down ASAP.

    Unless those who got scammed will do something, the company will continue to find more suckers to fall into this trap and succeed in their scheme to get rich quickly using such unethical means.

    Jiya Stuff.

  14. Wow, I came here to see if other people had the same insanely strong smell coming off of their Pet Rider seat cover as I do and it seems as though ordering this thing through their website is a much bigger issue.

    It’s likely too late to help any of you who have gotten screwed already, but I picked my Pet Rider up as an impulse buy near the register of my local Bed Bath & Beyond for $14.99. No shipping and handling charges or shady credit card charges when you go this route. It does, however, smell like I have several open containers of paint thinner in my car.

  15. Got my Pet Rider seat cover – the odor is bad Air for 3 days rain on the still smells. It make my wife sick and the 2 dogs will not lay on it. Like to return them but the shipping to high and lose in the long run. Order 1 and get one free but got 4 – this is a scam.

  16. I went to the local outlet store and found a section for As Seen on TV and purchased one Pet Rider Dog Seat for my truck. It was $14.99 plus sales tax and did not have to deal with the company. Most of these companies have found that they add item for free except shipping and handling and really stick it to you. I found it at Kitchen Collection but I have seen other stores with these products. By he way it works well but did have a smell that disappeared after a few days. I think it is a good product for the money but don’t go to the web site to purchase.

  17. Is a complete scam, don’t buy, go to Pets mart, they have it. I ordered Pet Rider off TV number. After 20 minutes of promos, and saying 3 to 6 weeks before delivery I hung up and called right back to cancel order. Was told to wait 24 hours and call back. They told me then it had already been shipped. They charged my credit card $28.00. I decided to wait and see if it would come quickly, and it did. Believe me, it is very much not like what you see on TV. It is black, and doesn’t fit the front seat right. It shows how you can u-zip for the console, what a joke. The zipper was at the bottom, and upzipped to the floor board. This product needs to be taken off TV, because you are not getting the same thing. I hope someone can sue them. Am going to write the BBB next

  18. I just received the Pet Rider Seat Cover product (s) so I don’t know how well it works…BUT their website is very confusing and does NOT allow you to make changes. I ended up being billed for 3 but I only wanted one. The “free” shipping turned out to be $13.95!!

  19. Thank you very much for your comments. I think someone asked, is it worth it? any other suggestions? Amazon? drfosterandsmith? come on, we get it, its 40 bucks for 2 of these things. Is it worth it? I’m on here and don’t see an alternative for less. Amazon? yea right, Google while you’re at it. Maybe we should go to army navy surplus and get a canvas ground cover? Just a simple question is asked, is it worth it? If not is there a product designed as well or better that is? Maybe not.

  20. I was not happy without a cart to verify my charges. I declined all extras and it cost me $41 not the $14.99 + 9.99 for 2 however then charged me another $9.99 for deluxe no shipping charge but $6.99 handling charges. This is not what I expected. I expected $14.99 + $9.99=24.98 total. When you say free shipping, you expect not to have processing fees either. I will have to see the product and check it out before I can review the product. Be careful with your credit card.

  21. Pet rider website is deceptive. Do not order from this company. False advertising and they do not reveal total costs until order is placed. The final total cost was over $20 more than advertised. We could not cancel order. We will have to dispute charge with our credit card company – Pet rider will not get any money from us. Stay away from this company

  22. Same as two unhappy customers above. I usually double check the business I am ordering from, this time I was in too much of a hurry as my dog recently put a nail through my car’s back leather seat. I placed an order for one Pet Rider, plus the bonus Pet Rider for only extra shipping and handling. The screen did not offer a “shopping cart” type list with a subtotal, just a “submit order” button. I submitted my order to see it come up with a whopping $86+ order for FOUR, plus S&H. I have called twice to cancel my order, once immediately after I ordered it, and then again, twenty nine hours later. Customer Service says it still has not pulled up and to call back in another 24 hours. Sounds like I am going to end up with FOUR Pet Riders for my ONE car.

  23. Actually… I just received my 2 – 2 pack Pet Rider order and from what the packing slip shows, I was charged the correct amount of $14.99 x 2 = 29.98. NOW, the shipping was $27.00. A lot for shipping however, the box weighted over 20 #’s. No tax $57.94. I have eight (8) of these (appears to be well-made) Pet Rider seat protectors. Made in China makes me want to PUKE BUT like all of us, we know that most ‘stuff’ bought anyplace now-a-days is made in CHINA. The chemical smell is enough to kill a cock-roach so before I mail some out to relatives for their dogs… I will air them out for a few days. ALL in ALL… I figure I got what I paid for. Keeping fingers crossed that my CC Bill will also reflect the $57.94 charge.

  24. I just went through some of the same madness that Charlie Kindschi (above) went through and I will be very mad if I am charged some outrageous amounts like Alan MacDonald (above) When I finally got off the phone and was able to get a live person phone # she told me my order was not in the system yet as it takes 24 to 48 hours. I will hound these people until I get some responses as to how much is being charged to my CC and for what. This whole order process is just this side of a scam to me and I most likely will cancel the order & if they do not let me do that I will dispute it with my CC who WILL get the money back from them if they get paid. I will go to a STORE and actually be able to see and touch what I am buying before I go through this mess again.

    • Yep-go to your local thrift store and get several used blankets to cover your seats. Much cheaper, far less hassle, and they can be easily laundered.

  25. Do not purchase one of these Pet Riders. $14.95 is not accurate. they ask for your credit card number first, and do not tell you they will be charging you $56.00 until it is too late. Be careful!

  26. I saw the TV ad for a Pet Rider Seat Cover for $14.99. I logged on and was offered an upgrade for $6.00 plus I could double my order for very little more. I went for it. When I got to the complete order screen I was amazed to see that the total was $83.92. I chose not to proceed. but it was too late the order was placed at the time I went to the total order screen. No chance to not click submit, there was no submit. I called the 800 number and said I did not want the product at that price and to cancel. My credit card was charged and the package shipped.

  27. Is Pet Rider easy to clean?

    Is it made of waterproof material?

    Can you fit it on virtually any kind of seat?

    Do sharp claws tear the Pet Rider?

    Does it install easily and instantly?

    Do you require tools to put it up?

    • Don’t get started with these people. When I tried to use the official Pet Rider website it kicked back my order over and over so I went to the 180 number. I got a recording that put me through a seemingly endless cycle of up selling. After refusing several offers I finally hung up during their attempt to sell me magazine subscriptions of all things. I have no idea what this dog blanket is going to cost me. My advice is just leave it alone.
