So, the cargo separator which many of us would use as a pet barrier between the cargo compartment and the forward cab is no longer a viable option for that purpose. This design flaw leaves a large gap between between the back of the rear seat and the actual barrier in the cargo hold under which a medium to small size dogs can slip, rendering it useless, problematic, and even unsafe. This is why the literature on this products warns that the cargo separator is not suitable for pets. AND, this year, Subaru leaves the pet owner with absolutely no pet-containment options as in the past. This is an unfortunate break with the tradition of accommodating pet owners in the generally thoughtful design of this vehicle. As a note, this large gap behind which animals can escape to the forward cabin is to accommodate the back bench if the passenger selects the recline position.

Since the pet barrier is no longer available for the 2019 Subaru Forester, can anyone recommend any off brand pet barriers that might work? Thanks for any referral you can offer.
