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.

If the carabiner loops around the the shoulder and waist part of the seat belt and then attaches to the harness, what is the function of the 10’’ tether on the carabiner?
Answer by AJG7May 01, 2022
If you find and read the Kurgo manual, the D-ring attached directly to the shoulder/waist straps (like in the photo) and then to the harness is how it's supposed to be used and what was crash tested. The short tether/handle part is for using as a short lead for training. For me, I like it b/c I can easily unclip the d-ring from the belts and have a handle so my dog doesn't just straight out of the car. Kurgo will tell you NOT to use the tether hooked to the seatbelts for safety. That's in their manual.

Is this harness good for walking/hiking/general wear while running and playing? Or is it more of a walk/car ride harness? I have a 46lb mix that is a puller!
Answer by ChewyJul 17, 2018
The all-steel Nesting Buckle System in this harness is based on the engineering for harnesses used by rock climbers and linesmen ensuring strength and safety. The chest pad and straps are also very comfortable, making this dog car harness great as an everyday walking harness.

My dog hates having to step into harnesses. Does she have to step into this one or is it easily slid on over her head?
Answer by ChewyNov 01, 2018
This is not a step-in harness. The harness clips at the top, on both sides. You can place it on top of the dog, and then feed the rest of the harness through either side of their chest.

Trying to train my dog to walk correctly. I’ve been wrapping a leash around my left hand and holding the clicker also. If he sees someone or something he begins pulling, I need something shorter to keep him at my left side. Can the seatbelt attachment be used to keep him nearby while walking?
Answer by ChewyJun 21, 2018
The 10 inch dog seat belt loop can also be used to keep you dog closer to you during walks.

Great Idea-Poor fitting

I wanted to love this harness. The carabiner works great. The harness doesn't fit. The neck is big but we aren't able to size down due to the chest size. Despite this, I thought it might work, but my pup has backed out of it twice now without trying while on a walk. It seems to be okay in the car but I don't it. Bummed because we've had to use it a few weeks to find this out and in the meantime I threw away the packaging so I can't return it.

better than I thought

I LOVE this harness. I was kinda nervous at first because there arent any buckles. but it hold so well. It is so much better than the old harness my doggo had. he has more comfortable range with this. and I really like the handle on the back and the clip on the back. Very easy to get on doggo.( if they stand still for you. probably not recommended for puppies)

Don't bother

This item is basically worthless, at least for my dog (who hates the car). When it's fastened he can't sit down because he's pulling up on the seat belt at the same time, which gets in the way of sitting. So instead he stomps around nervously until he steps on the buckle and unfastens it.

After reading the instructions multiple times, it was still not clear how to attach the lead to the seatbelt. The way that was suggested does not allow the pet ANY movement. My poor pup couldn't even turn around.

Houndini Escapes

Excellent quality but does not work for car restraint. My dog repeatedly wriggled out of this once it was attached to seatbelt.

Great Harness to train with

We love this harness! We recently got a dog through a rehoming. We are his 3rd family and last family. He needs a big of tlc and training. This is a great harness to train to walk but also to ride in the truck with. Its easy put on and tightens easily.

Great product

I love Kurgo products, and love Chewy’s even more. Lightening fast shipping, great inventory and prices. The best part of buying a quality product from Chewy’s is their business model- which is the best reason to shop and support Chewy’s!

Big Newfie

We have a 3ish year old Newfie rescue, Teddi. To put it simply while “only” 140 lbs, she is built like a linebacker, big boned, big chest and hips. Finding a harness to fit her has been challenging. We found Kurgo and we’re thrilled it had a padded chest strap and was the right size. Once we started using it we were even more thrilled with the stainless steel buckles and their ease of use. Very happy with this harness. We have 2 Newfie pups and are using Kurgo harnesses for them as well.

Hard to fit properly, my dog can wriggle out

This is a very well-made harness and we have used it in the car and for walks. We have adjusted it in all the various ways it can be adjusted to my dog, but still if my dog drops his head while walking the entire harness comes forward and starts to slide over his head. He wriggled out of the harness twice—once seated at a restaurant and the other while chasing a ball. I am not sure if a smaller size would work as the dimensions that are given appear to be too small for him and the medium should be the correct size. It may be that my dog’s body type is not a good fit for this brand.
