Rated 3 out of 5 by Ashley 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 Grandmonsta Great buy
It's pretty easy to put this on my dog once I figured out how the latches work. Thankfully they have great instructions. It fits really well on my dog and he seems comfortable wearing it. It's also extremely easy to attach to the seat belt.

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 hotcycler1 Kurgo Tru Fit Harness
Our golden retriever Lucie is now more secure and comfortable when riding in the back seat and leash walking is much better than with the traditional collar.

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 5 out of 5 by Sadie The best product for my dog.
I Love the Kurgo tru-fit harness, It fits my dog great.
I feel she is safe, because of the steel buckles and enhanced strength it offers. The harness is easy to adjust and put on and off. I really recommend this Kurgo Harness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheryl336 Works great
Easy to figure out, Easy to put on. I got the Xsmall for my 5lb Cavalier puppy. It keeps her secure. She can lay down or sit up. I Love it
