    Disclaimer
    It is very difficult to know exactly what happens to a dog in a vehicle crash since the testing tools available in the industry are very limited. In our opinion, a dog that is harnessed reduces that chance of the pet being injured by hitting other objects or occupants in the vehicle. It should also protect a dog from injuries associated with sudden stops and starts.

    Small: 25-45 lbs.

    Large: 70-110 lbs.

    Usage Information


    Dogs unrestrained in cars distract drivers, pose threat


    Dogs ride shotgun in their owner's car in Beverly Hills,
Calif., on July 16. By Larry Copeland, USA TODAY 8/18/2010

    Dog lovers, beware: Taking man's best friend for a ride could be risky.

    Nearly 60% of dog owners have driven while distracted by their pets as passengers, according to a new survey by auto club AAA. Only 17% - about one in six - ever use animal restraints, which can prevent pets from being a distraction and protect them and other occupants in a crash, the survey finds.

    In crashes, unrestrained dogs pose an unintended threat to the driver and other passengers, says Jennifer Huebner-Davidson, manager of traffic safety programs at AAA.

    She says an unrestrained 10-pound dog in a crash at 50 mph will exert 500 pounds of force on whatever it strikes; an 80-pound dog in a crash at just 30 mph will exert about 2,400 pounds, she says. Unrestrained dogs also can prove distracting by climbing onto the driver's lap, interfering with the ability to steer or crawling onto the foot pedals.

    The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals recommends that people use restraints on dogs and cats to prevent harm to the animals, the driver and other passengers, says Louise Murray, a veterinarian and vice president of the ASPCA's Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital in New York.

    Pets not only shouldn't ride in the driver's lap, they also shouldn't ride in the front passenger seat because of the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, Murray says. "The best way for people to think about this is to compare the dog to having a child in the car," she says.

    Pet restraints include harnesses, hard- or soft-sided travel crates and vehicle seats.

    People are taking their dogs along for leisure rides, on local errands and on other trips, according to the online survey by AAA and Kurgo of 1,000 dog owners who have driven with their dogs in the past 12 months. Other risks of riding with unrestrained dogs: After a crash, the animal might run away or prevent rescue personnel from reaching injured motorists.

    Almost four in 10 (39%) households in the USA have a dog, the American Pet Products Association says. "Our dogs are traveling with us so much more this day and age," Huebner-Davidson says. "They really have become part of our family. We want to make sure we're buckling up our dogs but also keeping our focus on the road."

    Canine Harness by katlady07/11/2012

    The delivery was very speedy and the harness is excellent. It is sturdy, very well fit, and easy to adjust. However, the clip that fastens the harness to the seat belt is not useable in my lap/shoulder belt. I have not yet figured out how to make something that will work without taking out the stitching on the clip, installing it permanently on the belt, then restitching it by hand. It would be easy to use a small rubber bungy cord and crimp it closed.

    Wish I'd purchased this before! by LH11/13/2012

    The purchase of the auto safety harness has been the best investment I could have made in my pet's safety and well being. It was so easy to use - I wish I'd invested in the harness purchase long before now! It is sturdy and my Labrdoodle is secure in the back seat - no more attempts to climb into the front seat to try & be near me. He readily accepted the restraint. I'm so glad that I purchased this product!

    a great seat belt for your best friend! by Pam02/25/2008

    We are retired and travel a lot by car with our yellow Lab. We always buckle up and we were looking for a way to buckle her in also. This system is quick, easy, and safe. It's also a good walking harness.
