    Hi All, my girlfriend has just got an Audi A3 from work as a company car and we want to travel with the pooch in the boot so we need a dog barrier/guard.

    I was just wondering if anyone can recommend a good one for an Audi A3 sportback please? We want one that is going to fit properly and not ruin the car, also if it is reasonably priced would help a lot!

    Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give :thumbsup:

    Barjo sell them for all makes of cars but they're rather pricey. You could go to the Audi dealer and see if they sell one for that model?

    a dog guard is essential for protection in the event of an accident though. A mat although useful for other things would not help.

    Hatchbag is great...will protect the whole boot, then a dog guard to keep the dog safely in the back.

    I used to have an A3 and got this guard Audi A3 Sportback 5 Door (2012-) but mine was the older version. There is one for each car model, they're great quality and very secure. They also require no car modifications whatsoever and are secure and easy to fit.

    I have swapped the car for a Honda and bought the version for that too as I was very pleased with it.

    That looks a good one I'll keep that in mind for my June lake district trip. I have one with the legs that extend to the bottom but it doesn't leave much room for the dogs.

    I think by stating 'also' pointermum meant a mat to keep the boot clean in addition to a dog guard!

    Just made me chuckle trying to imagine how a boot liner would be used as a dog guard ;).

    https://www.caninefinds.com/best-dog-barriers/ They are cheap and easy to find. Some parks even make them available to dog handlers in their park. Put your hand inside the bag. Then pick up the poop thru the bag, so your hand does not touch it, but the bag does. Then turn the bag inside out so the poop is inside the bag and your hand is not. Tie the bag opening in a knot and throw it away in the nearest trash receptacle. Easy Peasy.

    The dog guard that was asked about seven and a half years ago is the sort that keeps the dog in the back of the car - obvious if you read the post properly.
    No details of how to use a poo bag were requested. We all know that.

    As I started reading I was wondering why parks would make car accessories available!
