Ruffwear Load Up Vehicle Restraint Harness
WHERE TO BUY
Importance: Important for dog owners!
Bottom line: Secure your dog inside your vehicle, no matter the conditions!
You’ll also need: A walking harness when your pup gets out of the car. We like the Front Range Adventure Harness.
Be aware: This harness is specifically designed to be worn in your vehicle. The seat belt goes through a loop in the harness. However, the Load Up does NOT replace a walking harness/leash. You'll need a separate harness.
Our resident dog expert, Jeff Franklin (you can read more about him and his recommendations here), uses the Load Up with his own dogs. "This allows the owner to strap them into almost any type of vehicle, whether its a car, watercraft, or even a Cessna type aircraft. It's much safer, and also helps if your dog isn't so well behaved in a vehicle."
