In the summer I will be getting a dog and was wondering what you current Venza/dog owners do (or plan to do) to protect your interior. Would you restrict the dog to the back with a divider thingy, use a crate or put something on the seats to protect them? Of course there may be no need to do anything at all and I am just being overly concerned ;)

Any recommendations on specific accessories would be welcomed as well. I recall seeing a line of pet related products online for the Venza but have been unable to find it again.

Cheers

Nice! Looks very light weight and portable. Will definitely consider that as I plan to crate train as well.

That particular crate the "Day Tripper" is ultra easy to assemble and very easy to carry. If your dog is a chewer or digger you might want something more durable. Our dog loves it and he travels very nicely in it. To keep it in the orientation in the picture I need to fold down at least the one wider seat. If I rotate the crate 90 degrees it will fit behind the seats but leaves little room for my dog to enter/exit the crate. Depending on the size of dog and crate you may not need to fold down the seat(s) of course.

Cool! It's a shepherd so something along those lines will work I'm sure.

Oh.. after a little googling I found the article relating to the Venza's focus on pets with pics of the available accessories:

Hi Techseller , I think Kurgo is the company that Toyota dealers use to sell pet products.
The webpage is http://www.kurgostore.com . They have a good selection of pet products for many vehicles.

I have one of the hammock style rear seat covers. If you are unfamiliar with this it covers the entire width of the rear seat, and attachs around both front and rear headrests. It can be unzipped in the middle and the front section folded down so one person can sit in the back without having to remove the Hammock. Our dog loves to ride and this gives him the entire back seat area and still does a great job of protecting the leather.
