Rated 5 out of 5 by qm2das Very safe and secure!! Dog loves it too! Can't recommend it enough!!!
I couldn't recommend this product enough!!! It is incredibly secure and very adjustable to fit my retriever/pointer mutt perfectly!!! The design of the metal buckles are different than anything out there on the market and are super durable. They really do seem like they can hold up to nearly anything. I can easily lift my 70 pound dog by the back of the harness and I am completely confident that it would hold her safely in the event of a crash. Car safety for both me and my animals is a must and I love that this harness is even crash tested! Knowing that a large dog like mine hitting me in the head during a crash would be equivalent to being hit in the head by an SUV, I trust that this harness will keep everyone safe. As an added bonus, my dog feels so much safer in the car because she knows that the harness holds her in place. She no longer slips and slides off the seat and can nap soundly for the whole ride. Love love love this product!!! Definitely a must for anyone wanting to transport their canine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TalaandTeeko Safe and secure
I really like this harness and car safety system. I feel good that my dog is safe and secure from the car to walk and back to car...it all works quite well. It's a quality made harness with very good buckles and adjustments and parts that all seem very well made. I kinda wish the strap that goes into the seat belt buckle clasp was included in this package, even if it cost a tad more. But it has the strap that the seat belt goes THROUGH, and that works. Although I find it a little cumbersome to use with my large dog. I'm ordering the belt buckle strap for it. The harness is awesome. It fits my very Fluffy dog well. She has lots of fur but fits her comfortably. There is several little adjustments on there to make it fit the dog just the way you want. I also really like the fact you can hook leash up to front or back. The one in back is situated in a good location. The one in front you can use if you have a serious puller. She's happy in it. It also has a handle to help her out of the car which she needs as she has joint issues. All in all this is an affordable and well made car safety and walking harness that I would recommend. I will be getting one for my puppy once he's grown to his mature size and isn't in a crate in the car anymore. It's just so much safer for dogs and humans for the dog to be secured rather than loose in the car. No falling off seats (or worse) in a quick stop or accident, and no dogs bothering driver by moving to where they shouldn't go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BTP65 Could not be more pleased with the product.
The Kurgo Tru-Fit harness is the only harness my dog will wear without a protest. I assume the issue is comfort. With other harnesses she would not allow me to slip the harness over her head then she would just stand there and look at me, when the Kurgo Tru-fit came I put it on her, made some simple adjustments and she acted as if she didn't have it on.So thank you Kurgo.we both think the harness is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tlil much easier than i thought
being technologically challenged, i really thought i wouldn't figure this out, especially after reading reviews. it was pretty simple once i figured the way to insert one end into the other. use the end that reads kurgo to put through the slot. hope that helps. the reason i gave a 4 out of 5 is because i haven't yet used in my vehicle. very sturdy product though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alpha14 Did the job
Let me tell you about Kato, my not quite 2 year old, 90-pound German Shepherd that's been taking me for 2 mile daily walks over hill and dale. Nothing seemed to work. A big-pronged pinch collar had little to no effect on his strong, thick neck, not even a mild deterrent. Finally, the Kurgo Smart Harness arrived to save the day (and my arm). It was practically an immediate success. I'm not stating he now walks with a limp leash at my side. That would have been beyond success all the way to miraculous, but I'm confident that day will come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nora14 Less expensive than the Sleepy pod
I researched car harnesses for dogs and the Sleepy pod click- it got the best ratings, but was very expensive.I think the Kurgo Tru-fit harness is the best alternative to the click- it. It seems well made and has been tested. It is a little difficult to figure out how to use the nesting buckle, but once you figure out how to slide it together it is very easy to do and is probably much more secure than a plastic clip together configuration. My puppy is about 45 pounds and the large is quite a bit too big, but will work until she grows into it. I would not recommend sizing up at all if your dog is full grown. I like the seat belt loop that comes with the harness, but I also bought the direct to seat belt tether to leave in the vehicle we use the most since it is just a little quicker to get our pup in and out of the car with it. We leave a hook up in both cars at all times now, so all we have to do is put the harness on and go. Chewy.com shipped everything quickly and their satisfaction guarantee is excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Katie22 A little bulky, but a good harness
My dog is not a fan of harnesses, but this one has nice metal clasps and is very easy to put on. I ordered the large size, which is big on her now, but she'll grow into it in a few months. Even though it's big, it still works well, and I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jubilate Great harness
It's not easy to fit dachshunds, but this harness fits our mini perfectly. I find it much easier to open and close these clasps than the type found on other harnesses, and really like being able to use the car's seat belt.
