This seat is perfect!
Posted By: Peggy
Location: Lake Forest, CA United States
This seat was the fifth one I purchased in my attempt to find something to allow my Maltipoo to travel with me safely. I tried multiple seats that go into the front passenger seat, but I wasn't happy with any of them for various reasons. I was also concerned about the air bags. My car does not allow the ability to turn the front passenger air bag off, and having it go off and injuring my dog was quite a concern for me. I finally decided I needed to try a console seat so I could leave the passenger seat open for family members as well as have something that was not in the direct path of the air bags. I drive a Subaru Forester and there is not a great deal of room between the two front seats, and the console is not large. My dog weights10 pounds. I wasn't sure this Toto Too was going to fit in the limited space I had in my car, and be of sufficient size to be comfortable for my dog, but I was intrigued with the unit and wanted to try it out. There were multiple features that appealed to me with this seat. I liked the ability to remove the seat to use it as a bed or carrier. I liked that the console position keeps it out of the line of my air bags. And I really like that there is a metal bar all the way around the top of the bed that would provide another layer of protection from the air bags. I didn't have any problem installing the unit at all. Although I feel it was helpful to have read the reviews here to discover the wire mentioned by a few people. That should have been covered in their instruction booklet because it is a crucial component to the seat becoming stable and properly supporting your pet. Had I not read the reviews directing me to adjust that wire, I would not have been happy with the seat and would have returned it. Prior to adjusting the wire, the seat tilted toward the front much too much and was not very stable. The sides collapsed and it wasn't at all what I needed it to be. Remembering the comment about adjusting a wire, I saw it immediately and made an adjustment, making the seat stick up in the air more than what looked necessary, but as described by another reviewer as the correct way to adjust it. I then put my dog into the seat and buckled him in. It was now perfect! The seat became level once he was inside and it was very stable. I can rest my arm on it while driving and it remains very strong and secure. My dog appears to be very content in this seat as opposed to the others I purchased and returned because he can see out very well without having to stand on his hind legs, and he can lean over and rest his head on my arm, which is his preferred position. All his previous anxiety about riding in the car disappeared. I assume it was because he could actually touch me and he felt very secure in the seat. I also added a sherpa blanket into the seat area to elevate him and make it very padded. It elevated the dog to the right level to lay down with his head on my arm, and enabled him to either lay down and see out the front window or to snuggle down into the bed area to take a snooze. There was not much padding to the seat itself, but the simple act of adding his blanket fixed that. I actually prefer this because I can take his blanket in the house to throw in the wash without having to remove and wash the seat liner itself. I can strongly recommend this console seat to anyone with a small dog, 10 pounds and under. I have already sent the information to my sister for her little dog, and I am posting about it this morning on a website I frequent where many of us have little dogs. My only concern is the comment that once these seats are gone, there will be no more. I don't know why, since this seat is seriously perfect for transporting a small dog. Perhaps with better instructions covering the adjustment of that wire would lead to a 100% satisfaction rate with anyone purchasing this seat. I may have to purchase a backup seat if they are not going to be manufactured any longer! GWL: you may be able to find these seats elsewhere. We decided to stop selling them due to a total lack of support from the manufacturer when something goes wrong. This is not fair to the end user or GW Little. We choose to partner with manufacturers who understand the importance of good customer service and proper follow through when an issue does arise.

Excellent seat!

It took me awhile to figure out how to install this console seat properly- the instructions were a bit skimpy. I needed to adjust some screws and a cable wire not addressed, but once I got it right, this console seat is stabile as anything and well designed. Other reviews have said it collapses or tilts too far down in front, but I can lean on mine with my arm, and it doesn't budge. I like that it tilts back for access to the bins in the console. I do wish it didn't stick out so far in front because it blocks access to one of my cup holders. Most important, my 2 1/2 pound Pom puppy Sasha is safe traveling, and she goes with me everywhere. I added a mat because of little padding, and she is happy and accessible.

Safe Option
Posted By: Denise

I really love the stability of the Toto Pet Car Seat. I've tried other options for the console area, but this is by far the most stable and easiest to use. I will say that installation on an electric/heated seat was not easy (finding that bar and working around all the wires was frustrating); however, once done, it wasn't budging. I'm really pleased with it and feel that my little girl is much safer.

Pretty good seat for console loving dog
Posted By: Laura Nolan
Location: Napa, CA United States
The only thing I have a problem with is that when my dog sits in the seat, it pulls it down in front so she is tilted so her rear is higher than her front. My console does slant down a bit but if I could lift the front of the seat higher it would be perfect. GWL: There is a cable adjustment to control the pitch which should solve this problem.

Very nice

The Toto Too pet car seat is working out very well for our Chihuahua. He fits in it easily and we are very happy to know that he will be much safer if we are ever in an accident while he is in the car. I was very worried that he could be killed by the airbag when riding in the front seat with us. Now I am much more confident in his safety.

Great Seat for our Papillon!!

Great quality item that was easy to install - the seat fits perfectly between the front car seats. We can keep our little Papillon close but safely away from the airbags. There is enough room for her to lie down.

Easy to install and my chihuahua climbed in by herself. I feel so much better knowing that she is safe while in the car.

Not so happy
Posted By: Joenita
Location: grand rapids, MI United States
Not very happy. Difficult to get in the car and not very stable. Took for ever to receive it too. Put it back in the box and gave it away. GWL: Advice, watch the video! It shows how to properly install the seat. When done right the straps are tight and this is extremely stable.

ToTo Too Car Seat
Posted By: Sonya Worthington
Location: Louisville, KY United States
This is a wonderful, wonderful car seat. Yes, it is a bit expensive but well worth the money. I have 2 other center console seats but I will never use them again. It was a breeze to install. I love how quickly it connects and reconnects with the snap of a button. It also is very slender; doesn't take up hardly any space on the back of the seat. Great option of using as a carry bag or for use as a bed. Thank you so much. My chihuahua Zoey loves it as well; she fell asleep almost instantly in it on the test drive!

Toto Too pet console

Finally a sturdy console seat! Stays in place well. Just wish the bottom of the basket was a little firmer. It sags a bit.
