    Great for keeping our big boys safe in the car

    We bought this harness for each of our dogs - a L/XL for our 117 lb Bernese and a M for our 72 lb Retriever. The harnesses are easy to adjust, put on and attach. The boys are able to sit or lie down on the back seat without discomfort. Highly recommend and now they are safer in case of an accident or sudden braking.

    The boys love ‘em!

    Load Up Car harnesses get a similar response from the boys as their Ruffwear Float Coat life jackets. In this case they know they are going for a car ride instead of a paddle. How do they know?

    Similar sizing and quality for both items. Dogs love to have them on because they fit right and they know it will lead to a fun afternoon with their people.

    Easy on off, Huge piece of mind!

    I didn’t realize how stressful the free range dog was until I got this amazing, crash tested harness! The husky even seems calmer. I leave it buckled into the seatbelt and put it in her when she’s in the car. Thank you, Ruffwear!

    Safe/Secure, Easy, Lightweight, Stylish

    After looking at several options - we went with the RuffWear brand because of good experiences with other RuffWear products.

    We also loved the fact that this harness came with metal buckles (some had plastic parts) and had excellent placement for the seatbelt strap.

    After taking a 4 hour roundtrip drive with our Great Dane - where he was secure and happy despite one close call with a fast breaking, we are confident and happy to reccomend this product to others.
