**A nonprofit organization called the Center for Pet Safety did an independent crash study on several dog safety harness brands - 2013 Dog Car Harness Safety Report. This study was completed and reported in October 2013. They rated the ClickIt Utility as the top performing brand. The Ruff Rider Roadie came next. The Bergan passed using a 25 and 45lb dog dummy but failed at the 75lb size. The Kurgo Tru-Fit passed using a 45lb dog dummy but failed at the 25 and 75lb level. The Kurgo Go-Tech was not in the study because it is a new product that came out when the study was already underway. Pet Buckle, both small and large, failed. If you're considering a size that failed, remember than buckling up your pet still provides a number of benefits. It keeps your dog from being a distraction. Your dog can't jump or fly out of the window. Your dog can't stand on the center console. The harness may provide some protection in minor cases such as fender benders and emergency car maneuvers such as sudden stops and swerving.

What's wrong with this picture?
What is the difference between each of these brands? Each of them has a different levels of quality, safety testing, and fit. For a dog car harness that simply keeps your best friend in the back and from being a distraction to the driver then consider the standard ones. If you want something with a little more security and comfort, consider the Bergan brand. The Bergan has been safety tested using V9DT standards and has a very comfortable fit. The tethers on this brand are nice because they can attach directly to the housing of most seat belts and your dog is not likely to get tangled in it. The tether can also be used in the cargo area if the cargo area has metal anchors.
Another harness that can be used in the cargo area is the Pet Buckle. The Pet Buckle has been crash tested and it may come with the Kwik-Connect tether. If you elect to get one with this particular tether, it works much like the Bergan in that your dog doesn't get tangled in it and it can connect in the cargo area. The Ruff Rider Roadie is also a very nice and comfortable product. It has been crash tested and comes in many sizes so that your dog is sure to find the right fit. The Kurgo Tru-Fit and Go-Tech dog seat belts are also great crash tested products. They also have a padded vest which helps to dissipate pressure in a sudden stop.
The new ClickIt Utility pet car harness is by far the safest of all these. It has three anchor points so that your dog does not come off the seat in a crash. It has been crash tested and safety tested using higher standards than most other brands. It has some limitations, though. It can only be used on smaller medium sized dogs to large dogs. It can't be used on smaller dogs. It can only be used in the back seat and only in vehicles 2001 models and later which have the latch system between the cushions. Also, it is very restrictive. If your dog likes to move around a lot, then consider the Bergan brand instead. Or consider the Kurgo but use the Bergan tether so that your dog can stand and not get tangled. There are a lot more pros and cons of all the brands. Visit each of their pages for more detailed information.
