car seat belts for K9’s…

Given how much traveling we’ve been doing, it’s starting to occur to me that maybe I should get cici her own seat belt or seat or something… sometimes I strap her into the regular seat belt… and sometimes she has her own comfy back seat filled with fluffy pillows, blankets and sleeping bags… still a harness of some kind for safety purposes seems like a good idea… what do you think?

if you have a dog seat belt that you’d like me and cici to review, let us know…

here’s a few I found online…

  1. I love this blog, thanks for all the great tips here. I think that dog car seats are brill. I always like to know that my dog Mia is secure and comfortable in the car when I am driving. Thanks for this post.

  2. It’s difficult to find well-informed people about this subject, however, you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

    THERE ARE NO SAFE PET SEAT BELTS!!!

    The closet I’ve seen that’s actually RATED is a climbing harness for dogs called the DoubleBack by RuffWear. It’s rated to 2,000lb, so it’s only good for a 66lb dog at around 35mph. Faster speeds means you’ll need a slower dog or it exceeds the ratings.

    Pet seat belts on the market DO NOT RATE THEIR HARNESSES, so don’t buy a commercial pet harness. Push RuffWear to make a harness rated at 65mph for dogs up to 100lb and donate to the Center for Pet Safety.
