It's not a thin strap. The chest strap is as wide as the palm of my hand AND is cushioned. I've been using this brand for over 5 years and 3 dogs and it's been amazing. And it came recommended to me by other owners whom I trust.

It's OK if you like them, it's just my preference. In the pictures I see on the site it looks fairly thin compared to the type I'm talking about and I prefer a wider cushioned pad. The wider the better as that becomes a lot of force in a mild to serious crash

What about this one?:

I've been using this one for a couple of years, but I'm not sure if it is good enough. I need to buy a new one for my new baby, but I want to make sure they are ok first.

We currently use a seatbelt loop that clips to his harness in the backseat, but we mostly drive around the city (30 mph or less). Worried about keeping him (and us) safe and comfortable for several long interstate drives.

Thanks!
I don't have any suggestions and wondering myself what to use with Coco. She is a baby at 17 weeks so right now I am using a car seat harness where the seat belt threads through it which secures her well. I bought it years ago at Petco and havent been able to find it anymore for a bigger size when she gets older. But I have to say how so stinkin cute your boy is! Very adorable

I've been looking around lately and while researching the Sleepypod and Kurgo I came across this brand: EzyDog

https://www.amazon.com/EzyDog-DRIVE-...eb_18061139011

It's crash tested (From my understanding, all harnesses it seems are only crash tested to 30mph which is what child safety seats are)

Anyway, some people don't like how the dog is forced to sit in the Sleepypod and this one allows them to sit or lay. It can also be used as a walking harness.

Anyone familiar with it? Experiences?

That one looks pretty nice but really pricey! $$$

It is pricey. That's one reason I would hold off until the puppy is near full size and use something cheaper until then.

Do you have room for a crate? We've never used dog seat belts before, but we can easily accommodate 2 large crates in the back of our Nissan Xterra. Whenever any of our dogs are traveling with us long distances, we utilize crates. It's really much more secure.

I've looked into the crates but a Gunner G1 is $500. Maybe. One day.

ETA

woops! sorry, $600 for an Intermediate the Large is $700. They're around the same as Impact crates. It's a big nut lol

Last edit for links if anyone is interested

I'm sure they're worth it. We know the dogs are
