Hi all. I am looking for a cargo/dog partition for my 05 Golf. I have two dogs, so I would be using the partition with the back seats down. I am currently using a gate that is adjustable, but it keeps getting pushed over by the dogs. if I didn't care about the headliner or the back of the seats below the gate, then i would just tighten it up (I did that in my 92 Volvo wagon, but don't want to in the Golf). Currently, to prevent damage to the headliner I have taken foam pipe insulation and wrapped it around the outer edge of the gate (this kind of looks like a rollbar). To keep the back of my seats from being punctured by the cheap gate I have placed a piece of wood underneath the bolts. The wood is not attached and promotes the sliding of the gate.
At any rate, what I want is a slick gate/partition that will not damage my car, but protect it from my dogs.
Looking forward to responses!
Thanks

Re: Wanted: Dog Gate/Cargo Partition for 05 Golf (05anthracitegolf)

Wow...abosolutely no responses. I have done a search and only came up with one silly lead...to a dead end. Any way, what I want will have to be a custom job, so if anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear 'em. Are there really no Golf owners who have dogs? What's up?

Re: (Alkyoneus)

That would be nice, except i need to have the back seat down when the dogs are in the car (black lab & pitbull). Reeallyy don't want them in the front area. I made custom fitted cushions for the cargo area and for the seat area when the seat is folded down.
I know...some ask why I bought a Golf if I want my dogs to have an area in the car. Well, driving alone 95% of the time i wanted a smaller car. And Golf has been great!! it's first month. Last weekend my husband and I went on a weekend trip with the dogs. I bought the carrier bars and a Thule cargo carrier and we were all set! The cargo carrier actually fits in the car with the seat down. (Of course the dogs aren't in there). I love having everything I need contained in that little car.
I'm thinking this partition is going to have to be custom made. i would like it to attach to the car itself (though that thought kinda scares me, but hey...) I would want it to be easily removed as well. I don't want it in there all time. Mostly weekends.
Any ideas what type of garage or ??? to go to?
