Kurgo Dog Car Harness Review

Kurgo recently sent me a Tru-Fit Enhanced Strength Dog Harness for Venus to try, and share our results with you all. Below you will find a product description provided by the company, as well as how the product worked for me and my honest opinion of it.

This crash-tested dog car harness keeps you and your pup safe while driving. It has been designed as a dog safety harness, not a converted walking harness. The all-steel Nesting Buckle System is based on the engineering for harnesses used by rock climbers and linesmen ensuring strength and safety.
With five adjustments points, it’s easy to get a near custom fit for any dog, regardless of size and proportions. The chest pad reduces stress on the trachea and sternum while dispersing kinetic energy across the chest of the dog. This is important during those rare, but dangerous impact crashes.
Because it’s designed with comfort in mind, our Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Harness can also be used as a no-pull walking harness. There’s a halt ring on the front chest plate. If your pup tries to pull, it will just turn him around effectively training him that pulling will get him nowhere!
For maximum crash protection and to limit excursion, you should use the included carabiner to attach the harness to you car seatbelt system. If your dog cannot tolerate this level of restraint, you can also use the included 10-inch dog seat belt tether to provide a bit more range of movement.
-Protects dogs, drivers and passengers on the road
-Broad, padded chest plate for extra protection and comfort
-Compatible with any vehicle seat belt system
-Includes a carabiner and 10-inch dog seat belt loop
-Functions as an auto or walking harness
-Five adjustment points for a perfect fit on all shapes and sizes
-All-metal hardware
-Machine washable. Line dry.

At first glance this harness seems very well constructed. The material is thicker than a traditional seatbelt made for people, which really eases my mind when I think about the safety of Venus being in our car. The harness itself is highly adjustable, with two points of adjustment on each strap to eliminate slipping and/or loosening of the harness while on your dog.

When the harness is on, there is a smaller loop on the back that allows you to attach a regular leash.

The larger loop in the front allows you to attach the carabiner clip, which is attached to the seatbelt loop.

Overall, this is an excellent product that all dog parents should own. Even if you don't take your dog in the car often (like us), your pets' safety is important, and Kurgo made sure your pets' safety was the top priority when they made this car harness.
