These are great harnesses to keep your dog safe in the car. I've been using one for the last 18 months on mine and recommend it highly. The RRP is £85 but even online, prices are usually at least £50-£60. Only XS is currently available at this price but it should be of use to owners of smaller dogs.

I use the Clix one for my dog, a breeze to put on and has both a pass through hoop and seatbelt adaptor.

Just bought an RAC one for £6.99 from Halfords. Does the job perfectly.

Insurance companies can nullify claims if involved in a car accident, if they were aware of an unrestrained dog in your vehicle.

I don't think either of those are crash tested though, which the Load Up is. If it's not been crash tested it's fairly useless.

I should have mentioned that in the description. My motivation for buying the Ruffwear harness in the first place was that nearly all dog restraints on the market were only designed to stop your dog from wandering around inside the cabin. Whilst this reduces the chances of them distracting the driver, they aren't up to the task of restraining your dog in the event of an accident and preventing him/her from becoming a projectile in that scenario. Although the Ruffwear harness is more expensive than many perceived alternatives, it is one of the few solutions that has actually been crash tested and should help to protect both your dog and any humans in the car in the event of an accident. I am only aware of another couple of manufacturers who offer a product with similar levels of protection, they are Ezydog and Sleepypod.
