About Kurgo Gear
Kurgo believes that your dog deserves to go everywhere you go, safely and comfortably. Way back in the early 2000s, before dog travel gear was a thing, Kurgo set out to solve a problem: how to keep the family dog from jumping in the front seat of the car. After lots of brainstorming and prototypes, their Backseat Barrier was born. Twenty plus years later, they’re still finding new ways for you and your dog to go together in confidence.
Our 12 week old Rottie puppy chewed through the zip line on our first 10 minute ride. Her puppy teeth were stronger than the zip line. Since then we just use the leash portion to keep her safe in the back of our SUV. That has worked very well. Wait until your pup is done teething to use.
This is purchase #2 so we have one in each car. Its easy to install/switch, but both cars aren't always here. After several years there are no signs of wear with a 90lb dog who runs back and forth between the windows for the whole car ride. I'd recommend this brand, and a great price on Chewy.
Wish I bought this a long time ago. It’s durability, different adjustments it’s what I needed for my King.
This product is so flexible and adjustable to allow as much movement with safety as you choose. We're using the zipline (attached across the back seat using the handles above our car's windows) and lead attached from our dog's harness (back clip). We've adjusted it so our husky can walk across the back seats, sit or lay down on the back seats, but cannot slide to the floor or towards the front in case of a sudden stop. It's also easy to attach the lead to the dog's harness and attach/remove from the zipline, to use as a short lead. Our dog is as happy with this safety car lead as we are!
I love Kurgo products and I needed a new restraint system for my dog. I really should've thought about it first but, I really didn't realize the problem until I put Jaxx in the car and drove around. I really can't figure out how this helps with safety. If you are in an accident, your dog will go flying. It will keep them in the back but not protect them from slamming against the doors. The zip line also loosened throughout the day. I know tethers work, I just didn't want him to be stuck on one side of the car.
I really loved this zip-line/leash because my pup moves from window to window and he would always get tangled with the other car attachments. He’s able to move around better and lay down without being in an uncomfortable position. I would say if you have a small dog, the carabiner does have some weight to it so I don’t know how heavy that would be on them. My German Shepherd pup doesn’t seem to mind it though.
We were purchasing a newer auto, and our four legged assistant travels with us. We were concerned about keeping her safe. The harness does the trick!
Well designed and easy to put on and take of. Sturdy construction but comfortable for the dog on long car rides.
This is a really great concept, my only complaint is that if you have a smaller dog, the leash part of the zip line makes it hard for them to lay down. It is also safer if you have a harness for the dog too.
Works perfect in our Jeep. With harness Huckleberry is safe and we don’t have to worry about him jumping out when we open door.
