Does anyone have any pictures or info on how this attaches to the seat and if there is a separate tether clip for a harness. Thanks!

This car seat comes with a safety tether to attach to your pet's harness. For install instructions, please refer to the video below:

Can a dog of 12.8 lbs , 17 inches long be comfortable and lay down in this car seat . Also it can’t be front facing at all?
Answer by ChewySep 29, 2020
This rear-facing seat is suitable for dogs up to 30 pounds. It measures 18 inches long by 24 inches wide. It is designed for rear-facing use only.

Is there any way to set up the car seat so it can face forward? With having it in the back seat my puppy tries to get out if he can’t see me.
Answer by ChewyDec 20, 2020
This crash tested seat is rear-facing, like a baby car seat. The PupSaver is attached by 5 seatbelt buckles as well as 2 metal j-hook LATCH attachment points (backseat optional). In the case of a collision, your dog will be protected by the following measures: 1) on impact, the rear-facing PupSaver will engage with the SRS system in your vehicle's seatbelt, pulling it close to the seat back 2) your dog's body will be enclosed inside the PupSaver which now "clamshells" over with the tension of the seatbelt pulling the top part of the seat down 3) your dog is protected from becoming projectile, but more importantly, they are protected from impact with hard surfaces or from the second impact of the seatbelt causing neck or spinal injury via a seatbelt harness.

Can this be used in the passenger front seat
Answer by ChewyApr 12, 2021
PupSaver may be used in the front seat.

Love this car seat

I've never spent this much on a car seat for a dog, but my dog absolutely loves this. She's much more engaged with her surroundings than she was when I took her in her crate. This fits really well into my passenger seat, and the instructions were easy to follow. I did view an online video to install, because at first there are a lot of buckles and straps and I was confused. lol. But it's fairly straightforward and I'm not a "mechanically inclined" person. Also, not too heavy to maneuver easily. Highly recommend.

This is a great seat!

We purchased this seat for our senior dog after reading so many reviews on other sources about how it prevented their dog from being injured in car wrecks and felt good about buying it. She has been using this seat for several years and she loves it. Highly recommend it!!

Cute, but Doesn't Work for Us

This is a super cute dog seat, but we discovered that our puppy has motion sickness, so the backward facing placement of this car seat does not work for us. We will need a forward facing car seat that helps our puppy see out the front windshield. Hopefully, that will help to prevent the puppy from vomiting in the car.

Game Changer

My Morkie travels with me frequently in the car but is not a fan, and the only place she wouldn't freak is on my lap (not safe, I'm aware). After purchasing 3 different styles of seats, I finally bucked up and bought the pricier one. Worth every penny! As you can see in the pic, she is calm and relaxed. I guess some dogs do not like to see where they are going :)

Awesome Doggie Seat!

My Sophie LOVES this seat! It’s capable of being used for rear- facing, for extra security. It also uses metal hardware for securing it. Extra plush padding for the comfort of your pet, too! I got the black and brown cheetah print. It’s gorgeous!

Very well made

The car seat was very well made but unfortunately a bit too big for my 3 lbs Maltese.

Best car seat ever!

My Frenchie loves his PupSaver and I feel he is safe in case there is an accident. This seat is crash tested and cradles your pup so he doesn’t fly around the car or break his neck from just his collar being secured. Highly recommend!

My pups fought over who was getting the "comfy" car seat so I had to buy another one!
