"I never thought of restraining my dog in the car before, but gave it a try since it came free with this harness. I should have tried it a long time ago. I don't miss my pup trying to climb in the front seat with me or pacing in the back seat. She just sits still. Good for me and good for her too!"

My dog was terrified in the car so she wasn't trying to get in my lap because she was having fun, she was actually frightened. And a 50 pound staffie in your lap while driving is a recipe for disaster. We have used this probably 5 times now and I'm so happy with it and so is she! She actually jumps in the car and sirs down in the middle of the backseat!!!

We got one for each dog and a spare for the glove box. We also bought one for each of our kids dogs. Best money I ever spent.". I tried a traditional dog safety restrain from Vastar. It's not a full dog car harness per se, but rather a simple lead that secures to your car's seat belt buckle and clips to your Fido's collar to keep him in place. It works similar to a dog car seat belt, and is the cheapest dog car safety solution you can find.
