I just got a 2009 SEL and one of the main reasons we got it was to take our dog places w/o getting his muddy paws all over the seats. However, he doesn't like to stay in the rear cargo area very long.
I'm looking for a decent cargo pet barrier, and I can't believe how expensive they are.
VW offers a setup that can block the entire area (upper/lower) that is over $500:
P/N: 5N0017221 (Upper) ~$300
P/N: 5N0017222 (Lower) ~$200
Travalll has a version that is $169 ($210 shipped).
Are these the only ones that work well to contain all contents in the rear? I like the Volkswagen solution, but that just seems incredibly expensive.
Any help would be appreciated.

Best I can find is $544 for the setup...seems really pricey to get a simple divider in the back of our cars?

Do you have a link for the Travall? I'm not able to locate it online so I can't tell if it's quality or not.
I'm trying to remember... doesn't the Tiguan have utility hooks in the trunk area? Perhaps if your dog is wearing a harness, you can use a short length of chain/leash and clip that to a utility hook to prevent him from jumping into the back seat.

Here is the Travall:
I like this one (and the VW OEM) since they don't push against the roof to secure like the one REI sells. If you notice Travall uses the hooks at the bottom of the seat to secure against the window sill.
But I'm leaning towards OEM since there is an upper and lower section since I could feasibly put the dog in the back and fold the seats down for luggage/storage.

Well, I didn't see any reviews for the Tiguan-specific model. But when I clicked the Travall seller's page http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=bl_sr_automotive?_encoding=UTF8&node=15684181&field-brandtextbin=Travall I could see that their other similar products had great ratings. I read a few of them too... I shop on amazon a LOT and usually if I'm not sure about something, I rely on those customer ratings. I'd go with the Travall.
