    The Trixie ventilation window dog guard is made of a sturdy resistance plastic. What is particularly great about this guard is that it comes in the option of extra large to fit wider windows and a normal size. So if you have an estate car or 4x4 you could choose the 30 x 110cm guard to fit your cars or vehicles larger windows.

    To fit you need to wind down your window and then attach the guard on top of the glass and then wind the window back up, similar to the other ventilation products we've reviewed although there is a little bit of an effort with the manual wind up windows the problem seems to occur with the electric windows. Potentially to do with the strength and rigidness to the guard creates a resistance that then makes the electric window drop down slightly, therefore fitting this guard is not straight forward as it should be.

    Again with these types of dog guard ventilation you cannot assume this is going to keep your car secure as at the end of the day it is just hard plastic in the way so make sure to keep your valuables out of sight and to still be able to keep an eye on your car and companion from a distance, if you are going further than this, take your dog with you. If you are using it whilst driving then it will stop your dog from jumping out if they are new to sitting in the back of a car but still need vents to keep cool.

     

    Pros
    • Extra large ventilation
    • Two size options
    • Excellent for wide windows
    • Easy to stow away
    • Cheap
    Cons
    • Problematic with electric windows
    Verdict

    A little tricky to get right with the electric windows but if you have an estate car this can be a great help!
