Clickit Dog Harness

After the release of the safety testing, we opted to purchase the only one that passed all of the tests- the Clickit from Sleepypod.

Just received it before our trip south for Thanksgiving- so here is my feedback.

Pros: the 2 point tether system is much more secure/stable than the original 1 point we replaced. It is fairly easy to put on/take off also.

Cons: the 3rd point recommended for safety is NOT feasible with our Doberman-and I suspect any other dogs of similar shape/size. The large sized harness fits just around his chest, directly between his armpits. They recommend then running the regular seatbelt through that area and attaching it. Attempts to do so when it sits that high on his body were cumbersome at best, and downright uncomfortable/dangerous at worst.

So we are using it as a 2 point system, which seems almost identical to the Bergan that is also reviewed here. (And the Clickit was much more expensive).

I do like it far better than the old style harness/tether we were using, but it definitely has room for improvement- particularly in proper fit for a barrel chested, small waisted dog like a Rott, Dobe, etc...

Has anyone else tried this seatbelt. I am thinking of purchasing one, for the same reasons dobermamma did. But I am concerned she will not be able to lay comfortably especially on long trips. Dobermamma do you still use yours?

Yes, we use it every single time Remy rides in our vehicles. He is easily able to lay down and sit up as he chooses. We still use it as a 2 point tether. I can attest to how well it works- we were involved in a car accident last winter and he was unhurt. Had he been untethered (we slid down an icy hill into another car), I am certain he would have been badly hurt. He was scared (as was I!), but absolutely fine otherwise.

As he has matured and filled out, the harness fits him better, but I still find the 3rd point tether using the seatbelt to be unusable.

I have been VERY happy with the seatbelt overall, and would buy it again in a heartbeat.
