I hope by now you've all read my review of the three wonderful products to be given away by Pet Auto Safety. What's my favorite part of this giveaway? You get to choose the solution that works best for you and your dog.


Whether you'd like to seat belt Fido into the back, provide a console barrier or a complete barrier of the center section, you've come to the right place. With 2 dogs following me around on many errands, trips to mom's house and other outings, we know the importance of making sure they're locked in securely before we hit the gas. I'm pleased to be helping a few of you travel safer as well.

You may also enjoy visiting Pet Auto Safety at their Facebook or Twitter pages to get better acquainted or ask questions. Dawn will be happy to assist.


Many owners who allow their dogs to ride up front on the seat do this unknowingly leaving their dog in potential danger. Airbags are extremely powerful and can easily kill or seriously injure a dog in the front seat. Some newer model cars offer an on/off switch, while others engage when weight is placed on the seat. Raised car seats are the only safe method of front seat transportation in cars with airbags that cannot be turned off, and these only work for pint-sized pups. Please keep this in mind as you make choices for transporting your dog.

I prefer the harness and seatbelt for keeping my dog safely in the back seat.



Peggy Frezon said...

I toured the Pet Auto Safety website and in addition to the seatbelts and barriers, I liked the car window screen, the backseat bridge, and the small dog booster seats.



Danielle said...

a harness



MurphyDog said...

What a great website she has! Mom makes me sit in the very back of her CRV, with the back seat up. She has yet to find a harness that fits my giant self & that works in that back area, but it looks like the Bergan XL just might do the trick! I hope I win!!



MurphyDog said...

pee S. Mom can't find where to comment on the Pet Auto Safety website.



Katie said...

seat belt and harness for Roxy and Molly, the barriers Roxy is able to figure out a way to get in my lap, she paws at it and figures a way to jump over it or sneak under it, if it was just Molly she would be fine with the barrier but Roxy needs to be seat belted in, one time I drove past the park and she wanted to go and she jumped out the WINDOW so something to contain her would be very helpful for her



Katie said...

The Backseat Bridge from Kurgo would be awesome to have for molly she loved to lay down and sometimes even take a nap while going for car rides and once rolled off the seat(luckily she was okay)



Romeo Beau said...

I prefer the car seat in the front of the car along with a harness.



Just Coupons said...

I prefer a car seat



Just Coupons said...

I toured the site, I think the My Buddy - Pet Booster Seat is really cute



AmandaSue said...

front seat barrier



Abby said...

I definitely like the pet net barrier as my dog does not ride well in the backseat and tries to climb up front.



Laura Jacobson said...

I would want the front seat barrier for Murphy. He is so horrible in the car...this would really help.

Laura Jacobson said...

I thought the Breeze Guard Car Window Screens was very neat! I have never seen anything like this before. wow! :)

mdweitzel said...

I think the front seat barrier.



mdweitzel said...

I really like the Breeze Guard Car Window Screens but I am not sure where to comment on their website. Carrie, if here isn't okay, please guide me to where you would like us to comment. Thank you!



Danielle said...

I love the Breeze Guard Car Window Screens are really interesting, what a great idea.



Nancy said...

I also didn't see a place to make a comment. I love the Breeze Guard Car Window Screens. I would like to see some better photos of some of the other products. Some of them are intriguing too. Molimo wears a harness so she would be comfortable in one, but I think I might like the front seat barrier best.



rick said...

I think we would be best with a front seat barrier.

My neighbor's car has something like the Breeze Guard Car Window Screens built right into the car. I've always liked them for her dog Wonka. The would be great if they fit right.



pmh said...

after reading the review and touring the site, I really think Trouble needs a car seat and harness to keep him safe when we "load up" as he loves to do. hydepennym@gmail.com penny hyde



pmh said...

I actually ventured away from the site into the articles for pet safety while traveling and find myself amazed there are so many options out there. As I read one of the articles, I was pleased to realize as a part of a recent decision to board our baby as opposed to take him with us, I had actually considered all of the suggestions in the article. This made me feel better as a pet owner as I felt badly leaving him behind but am now glad I made the correct decision. hydepennym@gmail.com penny hyde



Ju P. said...

We have not yet taken Dumpling on a car ride since we live in NYC! I suppose we are not well-equipped for that at the moment. We use a pet carrier when we take the subway with him though :)



Christine - The Animal Sitter said...

I use a seat belt harness to keep my dogs secure and out of my lap.



bichonpawz said...

My girlz have carseats! We belt them in the back!



Christine - The Animal Sitter said...

I don't know if this is where we are suppose to comment about touring your website but I couldn't fine anywhere to comment on the actual site. Since I don't know I also posted this comment on the facebook page.

I am glad I have found your website just for pet safety in the car! I look at a lot of different pet supplies sites and always check out the Travel section. They never have a really good selection. Now that I know of this site I can find all that I need there. I especially love the Kurgo Car Dog Guards. I have a dog that likes to stick her nose out the window from time to time and also drools a lot. That product would be perfect!



CRichman said...

So many goodies to choose from :) I like the car seat for my little chihuahua. He is a little guy who gets anxiety in the car, and for his safety I have to keep him in a car seat. I really like that small dog booster seat would keep him safe!!!



Trish B. said...

I use a seat belt harness for Lumpy. I had another one but the buckle broke. :(



Trish B. said...

I learned that the dog car seat belts are made by Kurgo and have been safety tested for strength in conjunction with the University of Ottowa. The metal hardware is designed to hold up to 2,000 pounds. I also learned that only the manufacturers of the Bergan, Kurgo Tru-Fit, and PetBuckle dog car harness brands have provided testing information regarding safety, strength, and fit. As a vet assistant, I would see pets come in that had been involved in car accidents and had not been restrained. Usually the pet was paralyzed or dead. :(



Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

@Christine: This is the place for comments...thanks for joining in. :)



Anna Galanos said...

I would use a seat belt and harness or a raised car seat. I don't drive and I usually hold my dog(s) in the passenger seat with me or they sit in the floor board while I hold one and wait their turn. If it's one person driving the dogs to the groomer, they each have their own crate/carrier and they go in the backseat.



cstironkat said...

I need the seat belt harness because 88 lb dogs don't fit in a small dog pet seat. The backseat barrier would be great too.



cstironkat said...

I learned that **Only the manufacturers of the Bergan, Kurgo Tru-Fit, and PetBuckle dog car harness brands have provided testing information regarding safety, strength, and fit.



Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

@Trish B.: Shiver...that's so sad. I'm glad you found this post and share your story. I'd like to see more pet owners look out for Fido in the car.



Dawn said...

Hey! everyone, this is Dawn with PetAutoSafety.com. Thanks for all the great comments! I'm not sure what's up with my Facebook pages or why it won't let you leave comments. Feel free to email me directly at naturebydawn@aol.com or naturebydawn@gmail.com. You can also check out my blog at www.petautosafetyblog.com and leave comments there.



Cynthia Downer said...

We use a seat barrier right now, but even before that, we never had a problem with the dogs jumping up front unless there was an empty seat because one of us went in somewhere. I'd like to get them seat belts because it's safer.



Cynthia Downer said...

I like the large My Pet Buddy Booster seat - I didn't realize that there were car seats big enough for Midget.



Pet cremation tulsa said...

It is an informative post. It is an interesting information.I really love this.



Christine Aiello said...

I prefer the harness



Christine Aiello said...

I toured the website and found two products that really interested me that I didn't know they had for my size dog! The Roll Around Travel Pet Carrier (Large) and the Lookout Perch Pet Car Seat - Half Bench! So excited to find these two products!



Sara said...

My dogs have seatbelt harnesses



Dawn said...

Christine Aiello, this is Dawn with PetAutoSafety.com... I'm glad you like the products! :0) I just want to mention that even though the Roll-Around is for a larger dog, when it sits upright the bottom space is only about 15 x 12 inches square. It has to sit upright for it to harness into the car so consider that sized space.



Sara said...

I think the The Pet Net Brand Car Safety Barrier is interesting. I need something like this. Even though my dogs wear seatbelts they find ways to loosen the adjustments and like to poke their faces or try to get up front (of course they cant) many of the barriers ive seen like this are simply not tall enough because they dont cover the area above the seats. This one looks great.



Shelley P said...

I prefer the seat belt harness.



Shelley P said...

I learned that only the manufacturers of the Bergan, Kurgo Tru-Fit, and PetBuckle dog car harness brands have provided testing information regarding safety, strength, and fit.

I also learned that the extra small Tru-Fit Smart dog car harness is the smallest Kurgo size yet. It can be adjusted to fit a tiny 'tea cup' sized dog between 5 and 10 pounds. For neck size 9"-13", chest size 14"-18". This is awesome!! I didn't know they made a harness for tiny dogs. I'm so excited!!



Anna Galanos said...

I learned to think about the tiny debris that can cause injury to the dog's eye or nose. Having them secured in the car with the window is safer and they will still get the same whiffs.



Random Felines said...

I love that Outward Bound barrier. I don't have dogs, but I do transports and get tired of using my elbow. :)



Azizah said...

My preference is the seatbelt harness!



Azizah said...

I learned that a barrier that keeps your dog in the back of a vehicle - such as the back of a minivan or SUV - is safer for your dog, especially in the event of an accident. It can prevent your dog from escaping and running away from fear, especially if injured.



Lisa F. said...

I use a car seat for my long-haired Chihuahua. My bigger dogs are in the back (hatchback with seat down). I could use the barrier, though.



Lisa F. said...

I hadn't seen the hammocks before. Not sure that would be very useful with a young, active dog, but it is an interesting item.



Kate said...

I prefer the seat barrier.



Schooner and Skipper said...

Front seat barrier.



Schooner and Skipper said...

I love the Breeze Guard Car Window Screens. We have to keep the windows up because when we are driving I don't want any bugs or anything fly into their eyes or mouth. I have never seen anything like the Breeze Guard Car Window Screens. Very Interesting and great for the dogs to have a breeze in the backseat.



Ashley Clark said...

We use a front seat barrier but are tired of transferring it between cars



Ashley Clark said...

I really liked the window inserts that allow the breeze but provide the safety



evie said...

i have 3 little girls, the 2 oldest wear car seat harnesses, while the baby has a car seat, she gets car sick, so i have to remember to give her homeopathic medicine before we go somewhere and on the way home...she wont get sick if she is in my lap, but they worries me...i got rear ended on the way back from the vet last yr, and i did not have their car harnesses on..luckily they were not injured, just me...and my car...the front seat gets a little crowded, but they get upset if i put them in the back...



evie said...

dont know if i am to comment here on or on their website/blog....but i love the carsear/roll around...more protective than other things...also like the window screen...i also like the articles they have abt pet traveling and car safety, although most are common sense....



evie said...

comment was left as evie abt pet safety site, but was for sandy weinstein



Rebecca G. said...

I prefer pet safety harnesses. They keep your pets from becoming a dangerous projectile during an accident, and from jumping into your lap causing a major distraction. The best part is, they can still enjoy the view! The window covers sound amazing for dogs that enjoy the breeze but still keeps them safe.



Catie said...

I prefer a seat barrier!



Linda Meyers-Gabbard (LLMG1960) said...

I prefer the harness



Linda Meyers-Gabbard (LLMG1960) said...

I found The article on the seven reason why your dog should wear a pet auto sear belt very interesting. I posted the link because I think all pet owners should read and think about it.

Holly S. said...

I prefer the harness.



Patrice and Higgins said...

I think the harness would work great for me!!

~Higgins



Patrice and Higgins said...

My mom loved the Skybox Pet Booster Seat for me! She loves how I could still be contained and safe but look out the window!!

~Higgins



Julie Bjerga said...

I prefer to use the car harness "seat belt" for my dogs

karmabodhi80(at)gmail(dot)com



Julie Bjerga said...

I really love the variety of pet auto safety products they offer - everything from booster seats to seat belt harnesses, to portable bowls and water bottles for dogs!

karmabodhi80(at)gmail(dot)com



Catie said...

The Breeze Guard Window Screens are awesome! I've never seen them before. I always worry that my pup is going to try to jump out of the window, so we don't roll them down all the way for him.



larrielle said...

I have been wanting to get Bentley a car seat for the longest!



PepperPom said...

I ride in a car seat with my harness clipped to the seatbelt. It takes 70 pounds to turn on the airbag, I am only 13.5.



PepperPom said...

I see the seat I use on their site. The Snoozer Lookout II. I also have the travel rack for food and water!



lilyk said...

I learned that the company is located in Lawrence, Kansas.
