Keep your favorite furry friend safe!
If you are looking to keep your pup safe and in place in the car I highly recommend this harness. I've got a truck with a bench seat and this harness is the only way that I have been able keep my dog Karl from encroaching on the space of my girlfriend or myself while also ensuring that he doesn't lose his balance and plunge headfirst into the dashboard every time I stop. I'll be honest, he wasn't exactly stoked the first time I put it on him, but as we came to our first abrupt stop it was apparent that he felt a lot safer and more in control once he realized that the seat belt helped brace him and keep him from falling off the seat.
Karl also has a tendency to invade my space when I am driving so this has been an awesome addition and has helped me drive more safely as well since he is no longer trying to sit on my lap. The harness has a loop on the back that clips into the seat belt and works best in the passenger seat when it is just me and Karl in the car. It also works pretty well when I put him in the middle of the bench seat between me and my girlfriend (although he is forced to sit up). This is an excellent accessory for any dog lover as well since it helps make sure that your furry friend is safe and buckled up in case of an accident.
Hi. We have a West Highland Terrier, a smaller breed, and I was wondering if anyone has had experience fitting the Load Up harness? If so, how is the fit and does it look comfortable for the dog? Thanks, Brad.
