The Kurgo Tru-Fit Smart Harness with Steel Nesting Buckles Enhanced Strength is a crash-tested dog car harness that keeps your dog safe while riding in the car. It has been designed as a dog safety harness, not a converted walking harness. The all-steel Nesting Buckle System is based on the engineering for harnesses used by rock climbers and linesmen ensuring strength and safety. With five adjustments points, it’s easy to get a near custom fit for any dog, regardless of size and proportions. The chest pad reduces stress on the trachea and sternum while dispersing kinetic energy across the chest of the dog. This is important during those rare but dangerous impact crashes. The chest pad and straps are also very comfortable, making this dog car harness great as an everyday walking harness. For maximum crash protection and to limit excursion, you should use the included carabiner to attach the harness to your car seatbelt system. If your dog cannot tolerate this level of restraint, you can also use the included 10-inch dog seat belt tether to provide a bit more range of movement.

Key Benefits

  • Functions as an auto or walking harness, providing ultimate comfort by reducing stress on the trachea and sternum while dispersing kinetic energy across the chest of the dog

Kurgo Tru-Fit Smart Harness with Steel Nesting Buckles Enhanced Strength, Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 117.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 3 out of 5 by from Great for the car, not for walking. I bought this harness to go along with the car zip line. I purchased the Xlarge for my 120 lb Newfoundland. When we received it, I automatically let it out all the way, expecting it to barely fit her, and was surprised that in both the neck strap and body strap I probably had an additional 5-6 inches of length. Newfies are very deep chested, and I still had to adjust the chest placement to the smallest hole, and even then it is way too big for her. The straps fit great, but the chest plate kind of just hangs loose. Because of this, using the top buckle is okay for the car, but the front hook, used for walking, is impractical. Because the chest pad is so loose, the harness will shift sideways on her body, almost to the point of being on her back, if she pulls on it, and doesn't provide the turn around when she pulls. This makes the harness feel vulnerable, as if it might break. My dog fit into the measurements for an xlarge, but the harness overall is just too big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety First! This takes some practice getting on and off but once you have it down it's not a big deal - it's worth it to know that the dog is safe and also isn't a potentially lethal projectile in the case of an accident. This harness is very well made and I have confidence that it would work in an accident (god forbid!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent heart duty harness I have a very solid 80lb American bulldog. He is very strong and this not only helps him to not pull but holds up to all his shenanigans. Easy to get on and off and fits his wide chest perfectly. The seat belt attachment is excellent as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves this harness Best harness. We originally bought a Kong harness, but every time we went on a walk it loosened. We returned the Kong harness and purchased the Kurgo harness. We have fallen in love with all things Kurgo now, we even bought the car seat cover from them. The harness is perfect for walking and clipping him in the front. 10/10 harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great harness This harness is the best I've found yet. It is secure, lightweight, easy to fit, and best of all, easy to snap on. I have trouble with the pincher type snaps and this has a unique double buckle. Anyone with weak fingers will rejoice at this type of slip through buckle. Plus, your dog won't be able to wiggle out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This harness is very secure. I love this new harness. My Little Man is rather excitable and calms down when I place the harness on him as he knows something exciting is going to happen. I do not need to walk them as my property is 2.5 acres and fenced so the harness comes out when we go somewhere like the Heart Walk.
