EzyDog is proud to offer a variety of harnesses and accessories made specifically for traveling with canine passengers. Our goal is to ensure a safe and comfortable experience on the road so dogs and their humans can begin enjoying their journey together before they even reach their destination.
There are two types of dog harnesses that can be used in vehicles: crash tested harnesses and regular dog harnesses.
Crash tested dog harnesses, such as the Drive Dog Car Harness, are designed and made with the goal of keeping dogs safe during an accident. These harnesses have been procedurally tested and incorporate extra-durable materials to perform under extreme pressure and harsh movements.
Many regular dog harnesses can be used in the vehicle when combined with a car restraint. Harnesses that include chest padding, like the Chest Plate Harness or X-Link Harness, tend to be great options for car travel because of their security and comfort. When a car restraint is utilized with a harness this greatly reduces driver distraction for a safer travel experience
It’s always a good idea to invest in your pet’s health and safety. EzyDog crash tested harnesses are engineered and rigorously tested to ensure the highest standard of safety possible while still providing a comfortable fit for longer rides. Although not crash tested, dog car restraints can also be a more affordable option to help reduce the likelihood of an accident.
Crash tested harnesses, such as the Drive Harness from EzyDog, have undergone facilitated testing to conduct research and collect data with the goal of keeping dogs safe in the vehicle during an accident. To learn more about the specific testing process, click here.
While dogs will often ride in the cargo area of the vehicle, the back passenger seat is generally considered the safest place for canine passengers. EzyDog makes a variety of car restraints designed to keep dogs in the back seat as well as seat covers to protect your vehicle.
A car restraint is not recommended with the use of the Drive Harness as it will negate the crash test strength.
