The Car Safety Belt is designed to secure your dog for safe travel in an automobile. While the tether prevents your dog from freely roaming throughout the car, it is fully adjustable to allow your dog to stand, sit or lay comfortably without restriction.
The tether is not only to protect your pet while driving, it is also designed to eliminate driver distraction and keep your pet in one place at all times. Studies show that every 18 minutes a loose pet in a vehicle causes an accident. This is the tool to prevent that.
We have found tethers that are ONE SIZE FITS ALL DOGS. Safety is key and we found the smaller sizes were not as strong. This size works for all dogs. We particularly like the black one because it's reflective. The tether can be easily attached to your vehicle's existing hardware so no further installation is necessary.
Since the tether is designed to fit a number of different dog breeds, flexibility is a must to allow for a comfortable fit no matter what your dog’s size is. The tether is fully adjustable from 15" all the way up to 26" for all dogs giving them plenty or room to stretch or sit. Don’t leave your dog unrestrained any longer... get the Car Safety Belt today!
Do not attach the tether to your dog’s collar as this can cause serious injury or even death in the event of a motor vehicle accident. Attach to a harness only for maximum protection.
We recommend you keep it adjusted to a tighter setting with room for your dog to be comfortable but not loose enough that your dog can't jump off of the seat.
Securing your dog in the car with a seat belt/tether can actually prevent accidents! Most dog/car accidents are caused by a dog that distracted the driver. Many dogs are like jumping beans in the car. They jump from seat to seat or they pace back and forth.
Even if your dog is calm, you might have to make a sudden stop, or veer the car sharply or a car honks and startles your dog, or that you are rear ended. Now that mellow dog is anxious and scared, and trying to get into your lap and you are already reacting to the stimulus If you are in an accident, and a rescuer opens your door to get you out - your loose dog is likely to run out of the car - and into traffic . . . or just away. This can be avoided, with a dog seat belt.
Police are now ticketing for having a loose dog in the car. Some states have specific animal tethering regulations for vehicles. Yet, police in any state can write a ticket for an untethered dog in the car under general 'Distracted Driver' or "Improperly Transporting An Animal" provisions.
In case of an accident, if your dog is wearing a properly fitted harness and seat belt/tether:
This purchase was my second, this time for my daughter because I liked mine so much. She has a dog that likes to be all over the car. So this will be perfect.
Seat belt works great. Attaches easily to the Kurgo harness.
I went to purchase a basic tether for to "buckle" our dog in the car. The website layout is very beautiful and navigating through the site is also a breeze. Check out was straight forward, fast and secure. We received our item within a few days and it has been perfect for our needs. Adjustable and sturdy for our German Shepherd.
Bought 3 seat belt tether. Well made strap, sturdy, strong, flexible. Easy to use with car seat belt. Dog seems happy and is not twisted into an uncomfortable position by the end of the ride. So glad to have this clever device.
I purchased this to use with a crash-tested harness, and was pleased to see that it appears to be as strong as the harness. In my Mazda3, with the adjusted tether clipped into the center/rear seat belt latch, my shepherd can stick his head out either rear window, but can't come forward between the front seats. Exactly what I needed.
