Default Seat cover suggestions to protect my leather seats

I bought a car with leather seats...not realizing that a year later, we might be ready to get a dog.

I want to protect the seats with a seat cover. I saw a few at Petsmart.

Any suggestions on these? Any that you liked or hated. I drive a Jetta, if that helps.

Here are a few I found:
American Tourister Car Seat Cover with Pouch - Car Seat Covers - Summer Essentials - PetSmart (A Jetta driver gave this one a good review, so I am leaning toward this one. I just hope they have it in stores! But, there are some bad reviews.)

Top Paw&#153 Travel Hammock - Car Seat Covers - Summer Essentials - PetSmart

Top Paw&#153 Bench Seat Protector - Car Seat Covers - Summer Essentials - PetSmart

Top Paw&#153 Travel Hammock - Car Seat Covers - Summer Essentials - PetSmart

Luxury Car Seat Cover by Bowser Pet - Car Seat Covers - Summer Essentials - PetSmart

Thanks! We have a Marshalls nearby (same ownership as TJ). I'll have to check them out. Maybe I will look at Meijer too...a nice thick seat cover should work. It probably doesn't have to be "pet" related.

A word of caution: a lot of the seat covers require they be clipped around the metal posts on rear seat head rests! I didn't realize this when I got one for Christmas (my midlife crisis was to buy a sports car with leather seats...oops), so I had to devise a funky contraption to clip it to the child seat anchors. I don't know what's worse-- having to undo and redo it, or vacuuming out dog hair/conditioning out claw marks If you come across one that doesn't hook in like that, let me know!

Gsd isnt a lapdog, put a crate in the backseat. The dog wont mind it one bit unless you get him used to hanging the head out the window game first.
