I think there was a post on this before but I didn't see the actual footage:

apparently it doesn't matter what brand seat belt you use, none of them work based on the crash tests performed.

They tested 4 harnesses and didn't release the brand. At this point, the research isn't really reliable, in my opinion. I am pretty sure there are well more than 4 safety harnesses on the market.

I would like to see this research when it's completed and all of the harnesses are tested and they release the brands with each result.

I recently saw some reponses to this informal study by some harness manufacturers. There is a big display at the big pet supply store here that shows a harness that apparently IS tested. I can't remember the brand.

I need to look into this as I'm not a big fan of the harness we have right now - the Kurgo. I think it's too small for him now anyways.

I dont use a harness nor do I believe they work being in an accident with a previous dog who wore a harness and all. I believe the harnesses are another way to humanize dogs kind of like clothes for dogs

Much better than being free in the car. I've used one of these for most of my dogs for years, and it does help when there are quick stops, etc. Fortunately I've never been in an accident with one. The one dog that was in a rear-ender with me, was loose in the car, the only dog I could never restrain.

Looking at the videos from that site linked above, it looks like this one wasn't tested by them, though the product site notes testing, and I believe that cornell(?) had recommended this before in one of their pet newsletters? I could be wrong on that last part.
