Top Paw Pet Safety Harness
Hard to fit but overall good harness
There is no source to help with adjusting the harness for a better fit. They did not plan well for seat belts we have now with shoulder & lap together. Would work well if could put just shoulder strap through loop. I hope they change to a connection that attaches to the bracket used for car seats. The strap on back is too long so does not hold my dog on the seat so not really very good safety harness for car but excellent for walking. No risk of choking and in an emergency, strong enough to lift up the dog by the harness.

I bought this for my 18lb Cavalier King Charles Spaniel about a year ago. The harness is easy to slip on him and the imitation sherpa makes it comfortable to wear. However, because of how the harness hooks into the seat belt, it slides down to the buckle, twists his body position slightly and it seems like my dog does not feel comfortable sitting upright. He spends even short car trips lying down the entire time. Also, one of his legs occasionally can slip under the strap so it's free. There are other harnesses out there that attach differently and I plan on buying one of those to replace this one.

we are very satisfied
It is very easy to put on the dog, unlike some of the other options available in market. Just one strap over his head, then a leg through each of the 2 front "holes"; no fuss. Dog can sit up or lay down.
Puppy was upset when he took his first car ride with the seatbelt: we drove over 3 hours and in retrospect, we might have taken him for a short drive or two right off the bat...he was so used to being sheltered in his crate in the car, so it was a big change to see all of the highway action. We also use it as our new walking harness instead of the martingale we bought: he pulls less, and he is easier to handle. A bonus!

Didn't work for "magic" dog. Didn't secure him.
I asked a store associate to try it on my yorkie for sizing. Following the package instructions, my daughter secured my already harnessed dog into the car seatbelt. He twisted a couple of times and made his way out of the harness. How? I don't know. I returned item to the store the next day. He's 8.8 lbs./item's max. weight 10lbs. Any suggestions on what to use???
