My pooch generally sleeps while I drive, which delights me because if he wasn't sleeping, he'd be back-seat driving like every other passenger in my car. Problem is, he does get up and walk around the back of my SUV occasionally, especially when wild smells whiz by his whiffers. Until now, I never found a safety belt that would accommodate my dog's movements and still offer plenty of security in case the car in front of me comes to a short stop... (ahem)
Hammacher Schlemmer carries this Pet Seat Belt, which is perfect for our set-up. It actually attaches to a seat's seat belt, so when that stupid car in front of you slams on its brakes, you follow suit and your pet doesn't end up in the front seat from the jolt. If he is jerked forward, the car's seat belt locks and his super high-tech safety harness absorbs much of the impact that would normally be transferred to your pet. Notice the fullness of the harness and its wide bands... unlike many safety harnesses which are composed of narrow strips of canvas. Nice big hardware too!
When you're just breezing along on the highway, Hammacher's Pet Seat Belt allows your pet freedom to roam from window to window, as she's wont to do. To sit, to lie down, to stand, to roam, to be safe... what else could a pet ask for but some majestic fashion appeal? It's got that too.
The Pet Seat Belt is affordably priced at $19.95 to 24.95, depending on size, and it comes with Hammacher Schlemmer's lifetime guarantee.(Buy here)
That's the buzz for today!
