Pet Rider is advertised as a way to protect your car seats when traveling with pets. This is our Pet Rider review along with other key information.
While the problem of traveling with pets appears to be addressed with Pet Rider, the product has one major flaw, which prevents an otherwise good design from being useful. This concern is of the smell of the product. Pet Rider gives off a strong chemical odor reminiscent of gasoline, which some have said makes it an unbearable addition to their car. Washing this odor out has proven difficult, and some users have even claimed the toxic-smelling fumes made their dogs sick.
Another issue we have found is that, although the box states that it is machine washable, the product does not seem to fare well in a washing machine. After one wash, the material began to separate and shred.
If you can find a Pet Rider that doesn’t have a nauseating chemical smell, and you don’t wash it, it might actually prove useful.
