Hi there, I am new to Acura World!!! I have a RDX on order that will arrive in a couple weeks, Black with beige leather. I need to buy a second row seat cover because I haul my dogs everywhere. I don't want to buy the one that Acura offers because it is black. besides not batching my leather, the mostly white dog hair will show. recs for another brand of high quality, washable seat covers? I know I'll be spending a couple hundred, so I'd like to get it right the first time. THANKS

Your local pets store will probably have something that'll work well for you. I use an old blanket and sewed on some tethers around where the head rests are as my seat cover for my 80lb pit/lab mix when she rides around in the back seat. Other than that, what about using the cargo area and using one of those cargo block offs?

Thanks for your reply! I actually do already have one of those pet covers that has the teathers for the head rests, so I can use that for a while (my RDX is being built Wednesday). Cargo area - not my dogs, they are spoiled! Dachshund will be in passenger and my young settet and old pointer will be in the back (with the elderly dog, it is good for her to stretch). Anyway, I looked on line at Cabellas and they have custom covers for around $250. Problem is they look difficult to get on (says they go on in under an hour, I want to be able to slip on and off more easily). So, I'm now thinking of just getting a slip on bench cover from an Auto store. We will see, all good thoughts, I just want to protect my new car and be able to keep the hounds comfortable.

Ah, I gotcha. I really haven't spoiled my dog, however having a pit, you do bring a different mindset to dog ownership to ensure they're raised without any aggressive tendencies. But I'll be honest in saying that this is probably the best dog I've ever owned (since I was a kid, I've had a couple of cocker spaniels, a Yorkie, dalmatian, long hair chihuahua (recently passed away at the age of 12), and my pit). She's smart, follows commands quickly, learns from corrections quickly, great with my 5 month old son (to the point where I'm pretty sure I'd have no problem just leaving the 2 to hang out, she even assists in helping him learn how to crawl! I did not teach her that, that was pure instinct). But, yeah, she's getting older now (she's 8 now) and what a fantastic dog she's been for 8 years. I'll probably get another pit mix pup like her when she passes away.

Yeah. Waiting for my son to grow big enough to ride her like a little horse. That'll be fun times. LOL. However, knowing my son, he'll probably do it anyways because this kid friggin has no fear of anything.
