It’s empty in here!
Well designed and strong. It is quite bulky but my dogs finds it comfortable and even calming. Not difficult to put on and off as after first fitting only need to open one waist band connection and step the dog in. It is important to use shortest tether possible for crash safety.
A very sturdy harness but quite heavy. More importantly, the small version is still much too large for our 5kg Chihuahua. As well as quite cumbersome, with very long straps at the smallest adjustment, both our small dogs can extricate themselves from the harness: therefore far from secure
So reassuring. This is a fantastic product if you have your dog in the car. A little heavy for everyday use, but a fantastic product for car safety.
I bought the small size for my pug; it fits him perfectly and he comes willingly to have it on. It is good in the car and also for walking. He loves it as do I. I shall now buy one for my bullmastiff. It has been properly tested so why compromise on safety.
I thought the price seemed quite high but the quality and sturdiness of this harness is brilliant. The medium harness fits my female lab perfectly (I had to return the large - it looked HUGE so probably good for a Rottie etc). It's not suitable for walking any distance in as it's quite chunky but for peace of mind having a crash tested harness vs the standard one is fantastic.
We got two of these harnesses for our mini schnauzers due to the fact they have been crash tested. Great travel harnesses, odd when you first try them as you put them on over head, we leave the shoulder straps set at the correct size, and step the dogs legs over the loosened belly straps then tighten them, takes a few seconds when you are used to it. I wouldn't use them for walking, too chunky on our little pair. Great product, well made and worth the cash if you travel lots.
Having previously bought an inferior brand which broke when one of our dogs (9 Kilos) tried to jump out of the car without being unhooked first,I am now assured of the safety of our two small dogs who frequently travel with us. Absolutely top quality product and the boys don't mind wearing them at all. Perhaps a bit bulky for general use but they have other harnesses for walking.
We bought this harness after watching the independent crash-testing videos at CentreforPetSafety.org. So many which claim to be crash-tested, didn't actually pass the test, especially in the larger sizes. It seems you have to use it without the tether to be safest though (which we've not managed to do, so we have it set at the shortest it will go). It seems fine insofar as you can tell without actually having a crash. We used it to drive our dog from the UK to Portugal and back, and had no problems with fitting or comfort as others have mentioned. It's also handy because you can just clip a lead to the ring on the back if you want to take the dog for a pee-stop en route. We plan to buy a second one for when we take two dogs out at the same time.
I warmly recommend this safety belt, I've been very pleased with the product for over a year now. It is a little stiff and may be difficult to put on at first, but it's worth it when you know it increases both yours and your dog's safety in a case of accident. I would never more recommend any other safety harness than this one, as it is officially tested.
My young dog has always & always will have harnesses in the car but this one is a weird shape - Meg hated it & never wore it out of teh house, reflective bits in odd places, difficult to put on every time - compared to the other harnesses & really expensive. Don't buy it - I'll be returning mine, even although it's ages since I bought it & zooplus may not give me my money back - but what's the use in keeping soemthing which will not be used
This harness is amazing, it is so practical and comfortable, I really recommend it!at first I thought that it is a little difficult to put on, but then I decided that it is the only way to go, it is a traveling harness, it should save your dog in case of emergency! So basically, once you have the hava the harness on, it is only to be enjoyed!
