Pet Barrier...

Is there a pet barrier for the back area that works well with the X5? Or is there one made specifically for the X5? Anyone have suggestions on what to get and what not to get?

Thanks,
jeff

I've used the MacNeil (WeatherTech) Pet Barrier in another vehicle and it works well. They do make them for X5s. The web site is here.

I have the BMW Cargo Barrier. It is pricey, but works very well. It has mesh so my dog doesn't slobber all over my seats in the back (she can't stick her nose through it).

Mine is actually called the "BMW Load Space Divider" and it can be found at the bottom of this page:

I have the space divider as well, and it works for the most part. However, if you dog(s) is determined to get around it, it can. Very often when I run into a store and leave them in the X5 I am greeted by a dog on the passenger seat, which is particularly nice when they are wet.

They seem to be able to weasel through the sides of the barrier. I have 2 labs at about 65lbs each.

Thanks for the offer Jon! As luck would have it, I was in the dealer today and they had one on display just like the last one you attached (470 004 087). It looks like the exact one I want, except for the $524 price tag. I will need to think on that for a while I guess...

i would ask them to try and find the 014 model, its half the price and the guys in my local garage reckon its a better unit as you can remove it.

Smile pet barrier

I bought the BMW version for $325 and am very pleased with it. It was pricey but it is designed for this particular vehicle. Keeps the dog contained. It is just dodgy getting him in and out of X. I have to put the 1/3 seat up and he jumps in then after he is in put the seat back down flat. sort of a PITA but it works. Rear entry is way too high.

I'm considering an X5 but my wife insists the dog be crated. In the X5 this just won't work because of the slope of the roof.

Does anyone know if the dog cage in the previous post is available in North America and whether or not it will fit an 08 X5?

This is about the only thing keeping me from buying an X5.

I'm looking for one that will fit behind front seats so my Jack Russells can lay on their pillow for trips and have the entire rear of the X5. So I would need something that wont allow them to crawl over center console.

Any ideas? I also like the idea of the cargo area protective cover to be used with it:
