Many of our four legged friends love accompanying their owners on car drives to exciting destinations: the park, the beach, a friends house - never the vet though! Car safety is of paramount importance to humans and the same should be extended to dogs. Dog seat belts are a great product that will protect your pooch in a potential road accident and minimize any distrubances they can sometimes cause during transit - all of which provides assurance to owners.

We take a look at some dog seatbelts currently on the market.

The Solvit Pet Vehicle Safety Harness is a popular product with owners and dogs alike. The device comes in four sizes fitting pets between 45-85 pounds (20-38 kgs), which should fit most dogs comfortably - although our tiniest companions will struggle! The harness is made of breathable materials with accompanying heavy duty straps and metal connectors. It also installs easily into almost any vehicle and is very easy to unclip. The good thing about the Solvit Pet Harness is that it doesn't restrict movement but still retrains your dog during sudden stopping with is very important. This product is designed to bring comfort to your dog - it's well padded preventing it from cutting into your pooch's neck or chest. Overall this is a great product that brings owners peace of mind - and even your four legged friend will enjoy wearing it!

HDP Car Harness Dog Safety Seat Belt Gear Travel System

The HDP Car Harness is a durable device that is easily adjustable allowing your pet to position themselves comfortably throughout car journeys. It has quick release buckles and effectively protects your pets whilst travelling. This product is ideal if your pet enjoys jumping around in the backseat of your vehicle as it prevents them from moving about too much, but still keeping them comfortable. It's easy to clip in and out and is particularly useful on smaller dogs like Jack Russells or on dogs with a body shape like that of a daschund - which can sometimes be a struggle finding a seatbelt or harness to fit them. This is a flexible and durable product which suits most dogs.

EzyDog Seat Belt Restraint for Dogs

  The EzyDog Seat Belt Restraint is a sturdy and reliable product. It allows dogs to be seated comfortably whilst minimizing the possibility of driving distractions. This product is designed to be used with an EzyDog harness, but it is possible to use it on its own although you may not achieve as much flexibility, depending on the size of your dog and the type of seat belts you have. What's great about this product is that it is flexible so your dog can sit up or lie down during journeys. It's also really simple to use and implement and is incredibly convenient - you can just tuck it away when you're not using it. Overall this is a great product, but it does work best in conjunction with a harness for maximum flexibilty and comfort.

Thanks for your comments! It's sometimes difficult to find a product that will be secure enough for small dogs. From the above products the HDP Car Harness should be suitable for a small dog!
