Angry Bucket Seats and My Big Dog (what to do?)

I love my 330ci convertible... but my dog hates it. She is a service (hearing) dog and my best friend. She goes every where with me... but unfortunately she grins (literally) every time I go to use this car. I have tried everything, even cutting up a bed and trying to do a custom cover myself. These are the problems...

the leather is very slippery and doesnt keep anything in place that i have put on it.

the bucket is a funky square and she is too big to fit in one side so the middle is uncomfortable.

I would like to have something custom that makes it into a flat level service.... but i cant find any place to do this??

I have read the posts (I know some of you say you wouldnt let your dog in, but my dog is more important to me than any of my friends even!) I dont care if she scratches anything and shes not going to chew anything. I am planning to sell it if i cant figure out a solution to make her comfortable.

Please advise? can you help?

Might be too small for your dog. But maybe u could have something that makes the floor infront of the seat the same height as the seat so its like a single big flat area for your dog

Go back you your idea about fitting a bed in only this time take an old blanket and tuck it into the seats over the leather. Once the blanket is fixed in place, nothing will slide around.
