Default Does your dog have a car seat

Your car seat is comfy. You will also go to great lengths to ensure that your child/children have well suited car seats to ensure that they are safe and protected. How about your dog pet. we seem to forget that they also do get injured in case of an accident. Check out Get a Dog Car Seat at 30% Off

I got one that fastens to the child car seat anchors that are built in to cars made in the last 9 years or 10 years. I tried it on both dogs and it was really really hard to put on a wiggly dog. I vowed to try again over the summer while I'm off work. I'd probably have to drug one of my dogs to get him to sit still long enough. Just kidding. sort of. It's called Sleepypod and as i understand, its the only one that's actually been crash tested.

I think using dog seat belts or crates are the best options for keeping them safe.

I have been following the Center for Pet Safety and their reviews of various dog restraint systems. They did a harness test in 2013 and Sleepypod was the only one who could pass everything. There was a second brand that did okay on construction and restraint, but let the dog rebound off the seat, so a second crash of sorts. They haven't gone through the belted carriers yet. I am going to stick with sleepypod, though I'll probably end up getting carriers instead of harnesses since my boy dog is probably too small for their smallest one (I am waiting for word back, he's 1/2 a inch too small around his ribs).

Welcome to the Science of Pet Safety!
