This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in March of 2020. Man's best friend often finds himself riding shotgun in the car, which could actually be dangerous for your fur baby if there is no restraint system in place to ensure your pet's well-being. It takes only a split second for an accident to occur, and if your pet is not secured, he could be injured, which is why we did our homework and found the best safety belts available. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

March 27, 2020:

Keeping your pet safe when you travel is important to any pet owner. When selecting a safety belt, you will find a variety of choices. Some buckle right into your existing seat belt, such as the Kurgo Direct Tether, which is a convenient feature because it makes for quick installation. Others, like the Bwogue Safety Restraint, attach around the headrest.

Some systems, like the Lukovee Safety Vest, include the harness as well as the tether and buckle. These all-in-one sets provide everything you need right out of the box to secure your pet. It is important to consider the size of your pet and the length of the belt because you want him to be safe and comfortable. If you opt for a tether-only system, our dog harnesses can assist you in choosing just the right harness to go with the seat belt.
