Keep your dog off the front seat with Petco's range of car dog harnesses & seatbelts to reduce driver distraction and increase safety for you and your pet.
According to the American Automobile Association, about 20% of pet parents don’t restrain their dogs in the car, either in a crate or with a safety harness. But, for those that do, we can’t help but wonder if it’s doing any good at all.
Those test results reveal most of the pet safety harnesses, crates and carriers tested by CPS do not adequately restrain and protect an animal during a sudden stop or impact.

How safe are pet car harnesses and crates? - Howard County Times
Q:Many car harnesses for dogs and travel carriers for various pets look pretty flimsy. Do these things really keep our animals safe in cars?So the Center for Pet Safety became the first to independently test harnesses, carriers and crates using rigorous standards and simulated crash tests, similar to methods used to evaluate child-safety seats. They even created life-size crash-test dummy animals, ranging from small to large. In exhaustive tests on a broad sampling, most of these products failed.But how did we know these harnesses and carriers would really protect our pets in an accident? As it turns out, all we had were manufacturers’ claims. Unlike child-safety restraints, little if any independent evaluation had been done on pet restraints until recently.To protect the joy of driving with pets, we put Sleepypod dog harnesses and pet carriers through stringent safety tests to include static material tensile testing and dynamic crash testing at the standard set for child safety restraints.The Pet Passenger Restraint System (PPRS) is a safety system designed by Sleepypod to secure a pet in a vehicle and restrict harmful movement resulting from a sudden vehicle stop or frontal collision. Every Sleepypod carrier and harness includes PPRS components and features to improve pet passenger safety.Sleepypod will replace or provide a replacement discount on any pet carrier or safety harness damaged in an auto accident, regardless of the brand.
