As pet parents, we want to make sure our dogs are as safe as possible when in the car, which is why so many people have begun using dog car safety harnesses and seat belts during car travel.
But it’s hard to know which model to go with. According to some pet parents who have left rave reviews online, these eight easy-to-install safety attachments have literally saved their pups’ lives. And others say that, at the very least, the harnesses and belts have made car rides so much less chaotic.
The soft and breathable mesh safety harness from SlowTon comes in a variety of different colors, prints and patterns, as well as a handful of inclusive sizes (from 3XS to large). It also comes with an adjustable seat belt strap, with one side linking to the two D rings on the back of the harness and the other clicking into your car’s back seat buckle. Over 8,000 pet parents love this duo, with one saying, “I love that there is a bit of elasticity in the buckle end of the strap, allowing ease of buckling/unbuckling — even when any of them gets a bit excited about getting out and pulls that strap taught.”
Pawaboo’s dog safety car harness can be secured to your car’s back seat one of two ways. First, you can clip the seat belt latch into the existing buckle like the other models — or, you can fit your car’s seat belt through the provided loop on the Pawaboo safety strap and click it in place. Over 6,400 pet parents love this combo, with one parent writing, “What I love about this harness is it's not bulky, it doesn't rub him anywhere and he seems comfortable in it. He wears it every single day, sometimes for the majority of the day. It dries quickly when it gets wet too, which is a plus! … I feel secure knowing if we have an accident that he won't fly [through] the windshield, and it's comforting to know he can't jump out the windows when they are rolled down. Plus, it keeps him contained to the back seat, which is safer for so many reasons!”
