BICE WalkyGuard, a Barley Guard

We have adopted a Lurcher from Stray Aid, and while we had planned on adopting a dog, the speed at which it happened took us a bit by surprise. We had nothing in place for Barley’s arrival into our family.
On the drive home from 
Stray Aid Barley was on the back seat with Mrs.R holding him. This was not an ideal, or safe way for the dog to travel in the car, but we didn’t have any other options.
The next day we drove to ‘Pets at Home’ in Stockton-on-Tees to purchase some essentials for our new dog. It was an hour roundtrip, once again with Mrs.R keeping Barley under control in the back seat of the car, because we didn’t want to leave him at home on his own, and also thought he may enjoy the pet shop, which he did.
We managed to buy almost everything we needed for Barley; a bed, lots of food, several toys, a new lead, shampoo, and a brush etc. The only thing we couldn’t buy was a dog guard for the car. Barley didn’t seem to mind though, he was more than happy and clearly enjoyed being in the car with us, which was good.

Having bought lots of goodies at the pet shop, the only thing that we still needed, rather urgently, was a dog guard for our Citroen C5 Tourer. I went online and had a look at a lot of options. There were rigid bolt in dog guards, but these were both expensive and inconvenient, because we wanted to be able to remove the dog guard quickly and easily for when the rear of the car was not being used to ferry Barley to exotic doggie destinations. So, after reading lots of reviews, and weighing up the Pro’s and Con’s, I decided on the BICE WalkyGuard. It was a good price and promised to be quick and easy to fit.

I placed the order, and the BICE WalkyGuard arrived a few days later.
Mrs.R fitted the new dog guard in the rear of our 2010 Citroen C5 Tourer without much effort, it was as the box said, quick and easy to install. Now Barley can travel in the car safely. Job done!
