    Anyone have experiences with a bedrug and a dog. At first I thought it was the perfect idea, the thinking more I thought it may be hard to keep the hair under control. I have a black lab.

    So question is: rubber bed mat OR bedrug? Cost is $379 bedrug vs. $90 rubber bed mat. Again this will be with a cap.

    Suggestions?

    I can't help you with the bed rug, but I have a rubber bed mat and two black labs and it's really easy to clean....

    If money is not an issue, a bed rug would look better and be more comfortable for any living creature.

    But muddy paws and dog vomit/drool can ruin a carpet pretty quick.

    Most definitely...rubber mat. Rug would be a pain to clean and wet dog smell would stay linger for a long time.

    Hell yeah I think it's a good choice. :thumbsup:

    I got the Bedrug mat (which is just the floor portion for $149 .. you don't need the sides) & then the tailgate mat ($49 - makes it much safer for the dog jumping in). I got both pieces from AutoAnything.com.

    They give you big velcro strips to lock the Bedrug mat down, but if you have a shell, you don't need it .. it won't bunch up or anything, and it's super easy to remove and clean.

    My dog (border collie / cattle dog mix) loves it. He's up on his feet the entire ride, and has never had a problem. It provides tons of grip, and he's never caught a nail. Once you see the surface, you'll know that's not going to be a problem. It's perfect for dogs.

    Plus it's very comfortable to lie down on as it conforms to the ridges in the bed .. which actually is why I bought it .. I have an access cab (6' bed) and my truck is my cabin. And the Bedrug mat is a great sleeping surface. I've had it in there for the past year, and it looks as good as new.

    I highly recommend it for dogs.

    Can't the bed rug just be hosed down? From what I understand, it's not carpet like your livingroom carpet. It's more like the outdoor stuff. If I was getting something specifically for the dog, I'd go the BedRug route.

    I use both the BedRug and the Tacoma mat. I have a shell on as well. I have the mat down because muddy dogs leave a mess and the mat is simple to pull out and wash off. The BedRug is more of a chore. Secondly, that BedRug gets dog hair embedded and is a chore to vacuum out.

    My golden retrievers are comfortable even in cold weather with the insulation the BedRug provides and I have a comfortable place to camp in when I travel for mountain biking.
