What Our Top Dog Says About the Dog Car Seat Belt Tether:
The Dog Car Seat Belt Tether 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 vehicles 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 twelve inches all the way up to 24 inches for all dogs giving them plenty or room to stretch or sit. Don’t leave your dog unrestrained any longer; get the Dog Car Seat Belt today!
Dog Seat Belt Safety Information:
A Vehicle Safety Belt actually prevents 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.

What My Top Dog Should Know About The Dog Seat Belt Tether:
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. We Keep the Prices Low, so you will put one in every car ! Dog Seat Belts can save your dog's life:
Dogs are prevented from being ejected in an accident. Even "low speed" accidents can result in a dog being propelled at 20 mph or more through a windshield.
Restrained dogs cannot collide with humans in the force of an accident, which can cause injury to both humans and dogs.
Restrained dogs are unable to dash out when a door is opened, preventing a lost dog. And this restraint removes any chance of the dog interfering with driving, tangling with police, or bolting in the event of an accident.
The tether can be used like a leash, so your dog is never unsecured during the two seconds that you open the door that they love to jump out. This also saves their back from injury when they jump down

Do Dogs Need Seat Belts?
It’s no secret that dogs love to go for rides in cars and many dog owners enjoy the company of their furry companions on road trips. However, letting your dog have free rein throughout the car while driving is dangerous for everyone, and not just in a crash. According to a recent AAA survey, as many as 31% of dog owners who take their pets with them in the car admit to being distracted by that pet at some point while driving. Strapping in a child or even yourself is second nature, so why should a pet be any different? While operating a vehicle, having a free-roaming pet is dangerous for many reasons.
Free roaming pets are a distraction – A dog climbing from the backseat to the front and jumping in your lap as you’re driving can easily cause an accident.
Driving with a dog on your lap is dangerous – Not only is it distracting, you don’t have full control of the steering wheel and other controls with a dog in your lap. Furthermore, even the smallest dog poses a great danger in the even of an accident – a 10 lb. dog traveling in a car going 50mph flies forward with a weight of 833 lbs!
It’s the law in some states – In an effort to increase awareness of dog safety in cars, many states are encouraging drivers to restrain their pets during travel. Drivers who drive with dogs on their laps in Arizona, Connecticut, Maine and New Jersey can receive fines of $250 to $1,000 if caught driving with a dog on their lap.

We’re pretty excited here at Keep Doggie Safe because just this month, Subaru, who already has a pet-friendly reputation, announced they will fund research to further pet safety testing. Using “test doggies” in accident simulations, The Center for Pet Safety has already begun using the same laboratory used to test child safety seats. This is pretty awesome in our book!
