Auto Safety introduces the best known dog car restraint available - the Ruff
Rider Roadie. This particular harness has been on the market for nearly 20
years. Over those years, the Roadie harness has been continuously improving so
that our pets can travel safe while riding in the car. Compare with other brands on our Pet Auto Safety Blog.
Ruff Rider Roadie dog seat belts are made with the same webbing specs as used
in seatbelts for people (applies to the medium, large, and extra-large sizes).
The Roadie harness puts stress on the dog's chest, not his throat. It is
designed not to choke your dog in a sudden stop or car accident. The Ruff Rider
harness has no plastic parts and is pleated under your dog's front legs so as
to reduce irritation. Roadie has had their product tested by both the
Commercial Test Labs in Denver and the Allianz Insurance Crash Research Center
it Works Simply
slide the Ruff Rider harness over your dog's head. Then put his front legs
through the leg openings. Adjust the front and side straps to fit. Be sure that
it doesn't fit too tightly. Use the two-finger rule. A dog car restraint should
not be any tighter or looser than you would have your dog's collar be. Please
note, the extra-small and small sizes do not adjust in the front.
use in the back seat of the car put the seatbelt of the car through one of the
two loops on the tether strap. There are two loops on the tether. One is closer
to the dog and will make the tether shorter. Your dog can only sit and lie down
with this shortened strap. They will not be able to stand comfortably. A short
strap is ideal for safety as lessens the range which your dog could be tossed
around in a car accident. The other loop opening near the end of the tether is
ideal for dogs who like to move around a lot in the car. This may be a better
choice for dogs that are reluctant to wear pet seat belts and will try to
escape. And it allows them to sit, stand, and lie down comfortably.
To use in the cargo
area of the vehicle, be sure to check for proper cargo rings. Not all SUVs or
vans have them. If your vehicle does have such a ring, use the carabiner clip
to attach the roadie tether to the metal ring.
Sizing There are seven sizes
to fit dogs from anywhere between 6 and 150 pounds. The Ruff Rider harness is
adjustable so the measurements are approximate. Since the Ruff Rider is not
designed to fit skin-tight, go up in size if your dog's chest (girth)
measurement is close to the maximum. For example, if your dog's chest/girth
measures 30 inches, it would probably be best to select the Medium 2 rather
than the Medium 1. A looser fit ensures your dog's comfort, especially in a
sudden stop. Please note that a tighter fit will not prevent a determined dog
from escaping his dog car restraint. For dogs who will try to get out of their
Roadie harness, we recommend training rather than a tighter fit. A tip sheet
for training is included with your order or you can check out our blog at
