I crate when I can, and use the Clickit Sleepypod when I can't. The Sleepypod was crash tested and came back with a high rating.

Kurgo has a seatbelt that clicks into the regular sealtbelt thinger, and I've been very happy with this style of harness by them: Kurgo Tru Fit Dual Walking Harness & Sealt Belt Harness. Back when I was a dog blogger with Elka, they sent me one for her, and I used one for Ulrike for a little while (though Ulrike haaaaaaaaaaaaaated it for some reason). I think Elka's was an XL but I don't remember. She was a big, big girl.

I use Kurgo Harnesses for my dogs. I don't like the tether that goes directly into the buckle of the car, though. My dogs manage to unbuckle them ha;f the time. I prefer the tethers that wraps around the seat belt (or has a carabiner on each end), so that if they manage to unbuckled the seat belt, they are at least still attached to something.

I also use the Kurgo Harness - and have had the same problems as Rosemary - I did reverse how the how I click in the male to the female part of the seat belt as to try and protect it from the dogs paws - Now Mr. Business is a Pro and un-fasting it , Most times I just rap something around the belt release .

I would rate it - well - Better than nothing - but I think the cate would be the safest way to haul them - yet if you were in a crash - I could still see them still getting hurt . I don't think from what I have checked out there is one sure fire 100 % safe way . The important thing is that they don't come crashing in to you or a passenger - or bouncing off the dash .

oh yeah, I should've mentioned that i don't use the thing that wraps around a seatbelt OR a thing that clicks into the seatbelt. I use an attachment from a DIFFERENT car harness that I had with Elka, that has a carabiner at either end. One ends goes to the carseat anchor on the back of the back seat, the other end goes to the harness. So, not long enough to wrap/tangle, not open-able by the dog, just enough room to sit or lie down.

I own the Sleepypod and it works well if the dog cooperates. My Kayla knows how to escape from it, she will wear it patiently while I drive, however, once I park she lets herself loose.

I don't know how she does this because clearly she's way smarter than I am.
