    here is how my wife and sometimes I do it. use a rubber glove, slightly dampen it and rub over the seat covers and it rolls up! Believe it or not it gets a lot of of our Retrievers fur then when we vacuum and it is less time vacuuming. Some times i use my bare hand slightly damp for a quick clean up.
    Don't laugh... it works! On longer fur anyway!

    The cloth that GM uses for Silverado seats is definitely a lint and pet hair magnet. My 2008 was a PITA to keep the black cloth seats looking clean.

    I have found that a good vacuuming followed up by a good lint rolling gives the best results.

    lucky our trucks sit up ON the frame so there is no annoying "hump" to get over as you work the fur towards the doors lol
    but yeah, long brissles are the way to go... just ask the german sheppard...
    he says yes

    This is why before my dogs get in the truck a sheet is placed on the floor and a seat protector (canvas cover) is put on the back seat. Doesn't keep it all from getting on the carpet but does stop most of it. And for what does get on the carpet I just vac up with the shop vac. The Lab gets all kinds of hyper about getting in the truck. My Jack Russel Terror could really care less.

    Umm, this thread is 9 months old. It hadn't seen any activity in the last 5 months ... until @K15 Blazer Guy responded to it as if it were current/recent. Did we really need to resurrect a thread that had been dormant for 5 months?

    And while I'm here ... umm ... we drive TRUCKS. Put the dang pets in the bed of the truck instead of in the cab and you don't have a problem to begin with. Duh!

    Well, the post was in the today's active posts list so.....

    Anyway, for those of us that aren't Michael Vick, our pets often ride inside the vehicle. Particularly those of us with SUV's.

    Yeah, pets in the bed is a no-go for me.

    I use a 5.5HP shop vac to get out the pet hair. Works great.

    If Michael Vick had merely put pets in the bed for transport he'd not have done any jail time, a there's nothing cruel about it, it's done all the time, and is especially common among hunters during transport. The implication that it's cruel by comparing to Michael Vick is a ridiculous and gross mischaracterization.

    The point of what I suggested was simple -- the problem this thread tries to address can be completely avoided by truck owners. SUV owners can also put pet carriers in the vehicle so the pet remains in that, rather than making furry contact with vehicle's interior, directly. Again, problem completely avoided.

    Perhaps I just expect more discipline out of pets than most. Maybe people's pets, today, are being treated a lot like people's kids are today -- not disciplined in a firm, respectful, loving manner intended for the good of the pet and/or pet/owner relationship? After all, they don't need to be shedding on anything of the owner's if the owner doesn't want them to -- that's a matter of proper discipline and handling.

    Alox made the same point -- put something between the interior and the pet. I simply extended that to include placement of the outside of the vehicle between the interior of the vehicle and the pet ... and it's a common practice.

    The OP asked a simple question. Most people tried to supply a helpful answer that fit his situation.
    He did not ask for opinions on the way he handles or transports his pets. That's his business.
