WOW! I have a pup who has never been huge fan of car rides. We worked her out of puking on every trip up to her shaking and panting a whole lot, but we could never get her to really relax until I brought this home! We introduced it to her first by putting some of our blankets on it and having her sleep on it in the house, and then when it was time for a trip to the dog park -- she hopped right in when we got it in the car! She laid down and slept the whole time. I did also end up buying a cooling mat to fit in the bottom since it's summer down here in FL, but it does already come with a reversible cushion on the bottom with a warm and cool side.
Great Idea But Serious Design Flaw
on Jun 13, 2020
This is the only safety seat I could find that had seat belt clips and padding for a comfortable doggy ride. I had one where the top bars recently tore through the cloth frame. They use a piece of flexible hose the join two bar frames at the top of the carrier. Why not use a metal or plastic clip. The bars eventually push through the soft tubing. Shame because this is an expensive product. I still recommend it because it's so safe for my pet.
Almost too small for medium sized miniature Schnauzer
on Jun 7, 2020
My 7 mo. old, 23# miniature Schnauzer barely fit. Once the strap with clip was on his harness, he could barely move around. PLEASE MAKE STRAP LONGER IF YOU ARE PUTTING IT ON A LARGE SEAT. Also, is there a problem with making this sturdy design 2 inches longer so terriers fit? I'm keeping it only because my dog is trained to sit in a safety seat and this is the biggest one available.

This safety seat has made a world of difference for our dog. She is up higher and can be safe at the same time.
We’re very happy with this seat. Easy to assemble and received it quickly. Love it!
if your puppy has motion sickness, you need this
on Jun 19, 2020
My puppy Hank has motion sickness (4.5 months) and would throw up on car rides unless someone was holding him. This seat has helped tremendously as it clips to his harness. He sits down and looks out the window now! He’s still doesn’t love the car rides but can tolerate it and is getting better.
Good booster seat
on Jun 2, 2020
Comfy and sturdy. I like that my baby can see everything outside. She is very hyper and I had to unbuckle her and buckle her back up because she got stuck with the belt under her arm. But other than that it’s a great seat.
Super safe but bulky
on May 21, 2020
It's very sturdy and secure. Hard to install and remove, your pet will probably be safe in this seat, though. It's a little heavy and a bit too tall for my liking... would prefer to just get one of those easy-to-install car seats that are just like baskets.
Nice and secure booster seat
on Mar 27, 2020
I purchased this for my 10 yr old, 20lb doxie who is a rescue and new to me. She is always eager for a car ride but prior to my purchase of this booster seat, she would climb all over the car and council - even though I had her somewhat secured with her leash and a seat belt. It was a disaster and a great distraction each time she was in my vehicle. Initially I really wanted to purchase the'Snoozer' because I am new to dog ownership and doggie accessories and the Snoozer was recommended to me. I just couldn't fathom paying that much money for what that brand costs. After weeks of poking around online I came across this brand.

I just couldn't fathom paying that much money for what that brand costs. After weeks of poking around online I came across this brand. Mind you I am not downplaying the cost of this brand, as anything $50 or more is a hard nut to swallow in this economy, but it was better priced than the Snoozer. It came lickety split in one big box and needed some assembly. I did it myself and alone and if I can do it, anyone can. It took me less than 20 mins to assemble. It fits nicely in my car and is extremely durable and boosts my doggie to window level. Has a strong, large clip to secure the dog in the seat (which comes with a little pillow too). Even if your dog is not crazy about car rides, they are securely stationed within the confines of the booster seat, which allows some room to move around and lay down. I love it. No more distractions with a clamboring loose dog or paw prints over everything. I always place my dog's blankie on top of the little included pillow when she rides with me. This booster seat is super strong and seems like it could take a lot of abuse before it no longer served a purpose. I am very happy with this purchase. Its not the cutest booster seat but then again its for a dog and the brown color is very practical. Oh, and the cloth lining and pillow are washable. The frame of course is a hard plastic which can easily be hosed or wiped down. Since I have owned it and used it in my vehicle, I have never noticed it even budging from the seat location, not one tiny bit. Your vehicles seat belt - regardless if this booster seat is in the front passenger seat or in the back seat - slips through the slots on the back of the booster and the harness/collar clip. Love it! Someone used their brains with the design of this product. Good job!… more
Not too shabby
on Mar 2, 2020
My dog loves it. He seems comfortable, it took a few minutes to put together but I don't plan on taking apart now that it's assembled. My only complaints are that it is difficult to install and that I wish I could adjust the depth of the seat. Installation was difficult in my CRV. The seat belt was hard to get through to holes. Might be easier if you have a seat belt that is only a lap belt. Right now my puppy is just a few months old and will only get to about 25 lbs but as he gets older I would like the ability to make the seat deeper as he grows. I will have to switch to something else once he is fully grown.
Great car seat!

Very nice, works great. . My Daisy now sets up high enough that she can see out the windows while setting down.
