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.

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.

Dog Harness for walks and car rides.

This harness is a bit heavy, but I like that it is crash tested. The buckle/latch system takes a little bit of getting used to. I wish that the back had a little padding like the chest, but it is a nice harness. Plus it has a handle on the back.

Disappointed

The harness broke after only using it twice, and we can't figure out how it broke. Our dog is very quiet in the car and we do not use it for walking but when we took the dog out of the car it was broken. Luckily we were home and not traveling. If this product breaks this easily I cannot imagine it protecting my dog in an accident.

Safe Travels

Love this harness...my Buddy goes everywhere with us and we got two, one for each vehicle. Very easy to use once we figured it out. I feel confident that my furry friend will remain in my vehicle no matter what the circumstance.

Eh... it works I guess

This harness works well in the car but does not do well with walking. If you use the front clip and your dog pulls the whole front of the harness just shifts to the side (I think the buttons are supposed to help hold it, but it never stays buttoned) Overall, the harness works but if your dog pulls I would recommend a different harness.

Now she goes in the car!

We had a pair of boxers, brother and sister, for 10 years. Last winter Buck died unexpectedly and as you can imagine we all were devastated! Stella, his sis missed him alot and really did not want to stay home alone anymore. Buck never liked to ride in the car and he would cry all the time. In January we started to take Stella with us and she loved it! Her old harness, however, left something to be desired. We shopped the internet and found that the Kurgo Harness would be perfect. It fit her snuggly and attached to the seat belt. As a long time Chewy customer, we were please to find a bright red one on the website. It is a great fit, she is comfortable in the back seat and we feel confident she is safe.

I know my pup is safe.

The harness is extremely sturdy and works well with the seatbelt to secure my dog. I definitely feel better with this protecting my dog should we ever end up in an accident.

Outstanding harness!

This is hands-down the best dog harness we’ve ever bought (and we’ve had quite a few)! Outstanding design and quality, and our dog loves it! It is easy to put on and seems comfortable for our dog. The price seemed high but it is more than worth it. I highly recommend it!

Heavy duty, well made but has issues

One positive: when my dog tried very hard to wiggle out of the harness, it was truly wiggle proof. The harness is well made & sturdy but bulky and has issues I didn't like about it. It's heavy due to all the metal on it. I really liked the clip in closure, easier & safer than plastic clips. The instructions neglected to explain the two snap closures on the chest part. Finally figured out it's to fit the chest band to the more comfortable closure. I had to make the harness tighter than I would have liked due to it sliding from side to side as the dog pulled. The worst part was hooking up to the seat belts in the car. They do not fit into the carbiner very easily, then once hooked up the dog could only sit, she really wanted to lie down but that wasn't possible. A friend told me that if I loosen the seat belts up it would have given her more room. Right now I'm not using it, I prefer the regular snap on standard one I have. Might give it one more try with looser seat belt but it's difficult to get the two seat belts into the carbiner. The dog doesn't like this harness at all BUT I must say being so sturdy and wiggle proof I do recomment it.

Excellent for walking and auto travel

This is probably by far the best dog harness on the market, bar none (including Orvis, etc.), for control, durability, comfort (adjusts easily) and appearance (would be nice to have more colors though). It's ideal in medium size for my 42-lb., 28" chest lab/beagle mix, whom I've been training because he's anxious and reactive toward other dogs when he's walking along leashed. Easy to control him with this Kurgo because it has two control points: chest ring (for turning him away) and dorsal loop atop straps over his withers (for restraint and backup). Hardware is all metal and straps are good-quality canvas triple-stitched together and to hardware. Only drawback is for new users: a bit tricky to figure out how to attach clips quickly. I recommend only detaching one of the two shoulder clips, then sliding off over his head and hanging the whole thing up by the chest ring to retain its shape (and your memory of how it goes; after a period of daily use, this will be easier as harness assumes dog's shape more). Directions in included pamphlet are good, but mainly just remember that the stamped print ("Kurgo") end of each clip goes into its holder first when you're putting on harness BUT then to take it off, remove the clip via the non-print side first. For travel in a car, it comes with a short loop attached to a mighty carabiner: just click onto car seat tether and other end to harness's dorsal loop (or vice-versa).
