Do Dog Seat Belts Really Work?
Yes! Dog seat belts work to protect your dog while driving. Whether you are using a dog harness and seatbelt or a secured crate, keeping your dog restrained while in a moving car will help ensure that they don't get hurt in an accident, they don't hurt another passenger, or run away after an accident.
Pets, like children, should be safely restrained while traveling. All it takes is a sudden stop or turn to seriously injure your pet, not to mention what could happen if you got in an accident.
Unrestrained pets are also the cause of many accidents, as they can distract or even interfere with the driver's ability to control the vehicle. Today's pet restraints and car seats quickly and easily attach to a vehicle's seat belt, and provide plenty of freedom for the pet to sit up or lie down. Wire cages or plastic crates are also excellent choices to protect pets while traveling, as they shield pets from falling objects.
