Back seat dog protection

Hi folks,

I'm looking for options for a 2011 535ix GT to protect the back seat from the dog moving around back there.

I see there is a "universal" series 5 rear protection kit, but it doesn't fit in the GT (or so I'm told)

Anyone have favorite back seat protection methods for the GT?

Thanks for sharing
KC

Nice to see another F07 with a dog.

My German shepherd is 100 lbs and is my constant travel companion.
I do it the old fashion way - throw a spread in the back and vacuum at least once a week.
This is not an elegant solution, but it works and it is fast.

BTW - My shepherd really likes the back seat of my 550i GT much better than my 335i. Vert.

I fold down one of the rear seats and my dog sits on it, partially in the cargo area and partially in the main cabin. I tie a leash to one of the hooks in the cargo area (there are 4) to keep him from moving up onto the other rear seats.
