I think you answered your own question. That is exactly what I would do. You can take it out when she isn't in your rig

A floor mat would be a great way, no expensive at all, either.

i think the rubber mat might give her a little more traction too as well possibly?

I tried a rubber mat and the problem is the mat gets very hot as well. Better to use a carpet remnant or even a simple piece of cardboard works.

Carpet, just like it was before you removed it. Will keep her feet cool and have good traction.

I have two dogs that go everywhere with my wife and I .....I put two of those big rectangular dog beds in the back and it covers the entire back of the jeep ( with seat removed) ......they love it ...I have a body harness for each of them and use carabiners to latch them in ....( have to use REAL carabiners though, the cheap ones you find at the check outs of home depot and such aren't strength tested...)

Cut a piece of carpet to fit and throw a rubber mat over it.

Just so you all know, If I think you're an ******* I will gladly tell you. I'm not your everyday girl, so don't expect me to act like one. And yeah, I do like it topless and dirty!

carpet and then toss a old twin comforter on top of it. Works great for my greyhounds.

I cut a section of foam to fit the back and throw an old blanket over it. Cheap dog bed.
