The price is extremely reasonable; but while this seat belt might fit small, full-grown dogs in the weight ranges correctly, it does not fit growing dogs in the range. The problem seems to be in the chest area of growing dogs (our Golden Retriever), thus making it an awkward fit (the pup can chew the harness) and unusable to use as a walking harness. The wide seat belt did not fit well through the small elastic section, as it was VERY confining for our dog. We hooked a short two buckle-end leash to the ring on the bottom of the harness to give him more room to lie down. This piece is not included as it is with some seat belts costting upwards from about $36.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great product and excellent price at Chewy.com!
I just ordered our 4th and 5th Safety Seat Support harnesses. We use them strictly for walking the dogs though - haven't ever used them in the car! I think the best feature of these harnesses is the ease of getting them off and on.
Instead of typical harness where the dog has to "step in", with this you put it over the head and then pull the two straps under the belly and snap into the buckles on the back. They get a lot of use at our house as the dogs go out multiple times every day with them on. They have all lasted several years before needing replacement, and these probably had to be replaced before their time as a puppy joined the family and chewed on the straps (naughty puppy but very cute, so - whatcha gonna do?).
Recommend this product to anyone frustrated with the step in harness and looking for a comfortable, inexpensive harness.

by Buddyboy333 Excellent Product!!!
This harness fits perfectly and keeps my Buddy (62lb Lab/Catahoula) in place and the fleece lining makes for a comfy ride. Seatbelt attachment keeps my Buddy safe and secure and my mind at ease! I don't know what I'd do without it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bassador Keeps dog in place
Our bassador has a habit of trying to jump seats constantly (most notably from the back into my lap in the front passenger seat), so we decided we really needed to invest in a car restraint for him. This one works quite well, and since he is already used to wearing harnesses, he likes it just fine for himself. The only downside is that there really is not much leeway for movement for the dog in the sense that they can get a little tangled in the seatbelt or frustrated if they are trying to circle to get comfy before they sit. At the same time, it is restricting their movement that makes this seat belt do what it does.
Our tip would be to purchase it, keep your pet safe, but let them get settled in the car before buckling them in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jclaude1110 Fits well even though it could be a bit longer over the back.
I have a medium size from my previous dog. There is a huge difference between the small and the medium. The small is much smaller than the medium. The small fits my new little guy well. He weighs 22 pounds and is short legged but long. It only covers the front part of his back, but it holds him in well with the seat belt. The straps that go over his head and fit on the back part of his neck are elastic. This is really nice. My medium does not have elastic straps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DoggyMom Exactly what I wanted.
The product is exactly what I wanted, but I did not find it easy to put on my dog. It's made well, sturdy, and the part that goes into the seat belt works fine. Easy in, easy out. I probably should practice putting it on my dog first BEFORE we're on the way out the door! I will keep trying to make it a less stressful process for me and the dog. :-)
If you are already used to putting coats or harnesses on your dog, you shouldn't have any trouble with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lorie Covers chest with sturdy material and a soft fleece lining
After looking at other travel harnesses for my Standard Poodles. I decided to replace my worn out one with the same model from "Four Paws." My dogs are performance dogs so they travel a great deal. They also go on vacation with us. This harness covers the chest very well. The soft lining and the placement of the straps seem to make it comfortable for the dogs. We use an extension belt to connect it with the seat belt system.They wash and dry well. We have had them for five years and used them every day. The extension belt needs to be long enough for the dogs to move but short enough to keep them from flying around the car. The harnesses are easy to put on and take off.
