25 Best Dog Car Harnesses You Can Buy on Amazon
Dogs need to buckle up, too. Like a seatbelt, a dog harness for cars can keep your pets safe in an accident. When you’re ready to buy a car harness for your dog, you need to make sure to buy a high-quality product that does the job.
Sometimes, finding the right dog harness can take hours of scrolling through Amazon and weaving through reviews. The good news is that we’ve done the work for you.
These are the 25 best dog car harnesses on Amazon.
1. Kurgo Tru-Fit Crash Tested Harness
Rating: 4.4 (out of 5)
Bottom line: If you want a car crash-tested harness at a more affordable price, go for the Kurgo Tru-Fit. The harness comes with a short leash that is attached directly to the seatbelt.
According to reviewers, there’s a learning curve for using the harness, but once you get the hang of it, it should be smooth sailing.
What reviewers say: "It's strong, looks like ballistic nylon, the major fittings are metal, and the steel cable that attaches the harness to the seat frame looks like it could stop me if it had to." —Jahtez

2. TobeDRI Dog Harness
Bottom line: Though not strictly a car harness, this no-pull harness works well in the car. It has a ring in the front and one in the back, making it easy to attach a dog seat belt buckle depending on what best fits your dog. You also can use it for walks.
The only downside is that you’ll have to purchase the buckle separately.
What reviewers say: "I purchased this harness for my 5 month old female Chocolate Lab. She wears it for walks, swimming, hiking and just going for a ride in the car. It seems well made, sturdy, comfortable, easily adjustable, and can be put on and taken off quickly and easily." —Maryce429

3. EzyDog Crash Tested Harness
Bottom line: Two things make the EzyDog harness worth its steep price. One, it is a dog car harness that has been crash tested, so you know that safety is guaranteed.
It also is directly attached to the seat belt, so you don’t have to buy a dog car belt buckle to go along with it.
What reviewers say: "This restraint has made my dog a 'new' dog in the car. Where he used to fidget and whine, he now rides securely knowing he's not going to fall on the floor or loose [sic] his balance. I love taking him with me now! Thanks for a great product, I hope we never test its full protection." —Andrea Regnier

4. Iokheira Dog Seat Belt
Bottom line: For something a bit simpler, you can opt for a dog seat belt that works with the harness or collar you already use for your dog.
There might be cheaper ones on the market, but this belt has the advantage of having a buckle as well as a hook, so you can connect it to different parts of the car.
This is important if you’re going to be riding in a full car where a human already will be using the seat belt buckle.
What reviewers say: "I have been using this a few months now and am incredibly happy with it. We travel quite a bit with our dogs and I love how easy it is to use and how it connects to whatever harness I am already using for my dogs. Also, it transfers so easily between vehicles and I can use it in the hatchback on the latch or in the seats with the belt connect just as easily. Plus, it is long enough that the dogs don't fuss with it so it is holding up very well." —Amilynn

5. PetSafe Car Harness for Dogs
Bottom line: Rather than rely on a dog seat belt as other harnesses do, the PetSafe car harness has two loops to place your car’s actual seat belt. This helps keep dogs in place without annoying leashes.
It also helps when you want to strap yourself and your dog into the same seat.
What reviewers say: "The buckles are made out of metal and as long as you loop the strap back through the metal buckle over itself after adjusting to your dog there’s absolutely no way that strap would slide during an accident. Everything looks and feels very quality made. I love that you feed the actual seatbelt through the loops on the back of the harness. That way it’s up away from the dogs paws and they’re not stepping on an extra strap that runs from the harness and buckles into the seatbelt like most dog harnesses. Love these." —Bre

6. Mighty Paw Dog Safety Belt
Bottom line: This simple but sturdy dog safety belt is adjustable, so you can fit it to your dog’s size. It also attaches to your car’s latchbars, which many people love about the product.
What reviewers say: "It's sturdy, easy to use and adjust, and the carabiner is so much better than the typical pet clip (which he also figured out how to unclasp).
I feel so much better knowing he can't escape his 'straight jacket' and is safer now when we're on the road. It may be more expensive than other pet seat belts, but my the peace of mind is very worth every penny!" —Lorelei711
Buy now: Mighty Paw Dog Safety Belt, $15.99
7. Urpower Upgraded Dog Seat Belt
Bottom line: Like Mighty Paw’s dog safety belt above, Urpower's seat belt can attach to multiple places in the car, since it has a hook as well as a latch. The belt is elastic, allowing for some movement without too much range.
But what sets the product apart is that it offers two dog seat belts rather than just one.
What reviewers say: "The clip that goes into your dogs collar seems to be very sturdy. The two anchor options work great because I can either clip my dog into the seatbelt or use the clip option to anchor him in the cargo area. Either way I feel reassured that he's secure in the car now, keeping him and everyone else safe." —Layla
Buy now: Urpower Upgraded Dog Seat Belt, $15.99
8. Leash Boss Dog Car Seat Belt
Bottom line: What Leash Boss’ dog car seat belt has going for it is its simplicity. This relatively short wire attaches to a car’s latch bars and to your dog’s harness, thus keeping them in place.
It’s great if your pet tends to chew through fabric leashes. The downside is that it doesn’t attach to a seat belt, so you’re limited to latch bars.
What reviewers say: "This is a great leash and it's working very well for my dog. He has gotten it in his mouth once or twice, but after realizing he can't chew it, he doesn't bother it anymore. It is sturdy and well-made, and I don't think it would be too heavy for even small dogs." —T.P.

9. VavoPaw Dog Vehicle Safety Harness
Bottom line: This VavoPaw product comes with a breathable harness that is available in all sizes. It also has a leash with dual seat belt and latch bar clips.
The good thing about it is that you won’t have to buy any additional products to go along with it.
What reviewers say: "I looked at a ton of harnesses online before picking these. Looking for the best for the price. They’re very well built, comfortable looking, sturdy and easy to put on." —Carmella

10. Rabbitgoo Dog Harness
Bottom line: This Rabbitgoo dog harness isn’t specifically designed for car rides. Rather, it’s a general harness that can be used in the car.
You’ll have to purchase a leash to accompany it, but with more than 97,000 reviews and a 4.5 rating, it's worth it.
What reviewers say: "While I would consider this harness more of a walking harness than a car safety device, it surely serves both purposes. [...] We bought a red and a blue one and we are very happy with this purchase." —cteama
Buy now: Rabbitgoo Dog Harness, $14.98
11. Haapaw Dog Seat Belt
Bottom line: The Haapaw dog harness and seat belt is intuitive to use and comes in different colors and sizes. As the cherry on top, the product comes with two seat belt leashes.
This way, if anything happens to one, you have an immediate backup and won’t have to worry about waiting for another one to arrive.
What reviewers say: "This fits my dog well and latches securely. The seatbelt pieces are great because I can buckle her in on both sides in the back seat for added safety. Love it!" —Ashley Mazur Williams
Buy now: Haapaw Dog Seat Belt, $12.99
12. SlowTon Dog Car Harness
Bottom line: With 10,823 reviews and a 4.5 rating, SlowTon’s dog car harness is one of the most popular ones on Amazon. As with similar products, this one includes a dog harness as well as connector strap that buckles your dog to the seat belt.
The strap is adjustable and elastic, and the combo comes in various colors.
What reviewers say: "Love this so much. I have an Australian shepherd/St. Bernard mix who clocks in at about 54 pounds, and the medium fit her perfectly when the straps were adjusted. She was really comfortable in the harness, and I liked that the way you put it on, she didn't have to actually step into it like other alternatives I've seen; you slide the main portion over her head, and then buckle the rest of it in yourself. My pup loved it, too." —Ari

13. Doyoo Dog Seat Belt
Bottom line: People who already use a harness can buy this simple dog seat belt that safely and comfortably attaches to it. What makes the product stand out is that it includes two dog seat belts and a collapsible dog water cup.
The seat belts can attach to a seat belt buckle or a car latch.
What reviewers say: "Awesome doggie seat belts and I use the other clip for the bed of my truck to keep my pup in that area for when I'm getting my fishing gear set-up." —Aaron Branham

15. Lukovee Double Dog Seat Belt
Bottom line: Another Lukovee product, this unique seat belt is exactly what you need if you have multiple dogs.
It can be a hassle to buckle each dog into a separate seatbelt, so this double belt allows you to loop through a single headrest and keep two dogs safe at the same time.
What reviewers say: "I've been looking for something that was easy to keep my 2 little dogs safe in the car but still let them move a bit. This works great." —Miss T

What reviewers say: "I have loved these! I have 2 dogs, a big one and a small one. These seatbelts have worked for both of them." —Amazon Customer

17. SlowTon 2-Pack Dog Seat Belts

It’s recommended that they are used with a harness.
What reviewers say: "Bought this for my 2 dogs, and today we tried it first time ... . It is very easy to use - attach to, and easy to adjust the length of it, for the dog feel comfortable sitting, sleeping or looking through window. Recommend! Thank you!" —Zeinii

18. EzyDog Universal Dog Car Restraint
Bottom line: With a different design, this dog car restraint loops through the seatbelt and connects to a harness.
The design makes it one-size-fits-all, which is convenient if other harnesses don’t fit your dog or if you’re going to use it for different dogs.
What reviewers say: "Bought this to go with a harness to keep my bulldog/jack Russell mix seated during his ride to the park. He is all over the vehicle with excitement on his ride that he just can't sit still. This safety lead is fantastic, easy to install, well made and allows him to sit or stand, but keeps him in one seat, otherwise he would be driving himself to the park! Love this!" —Debra Kelter

Bottom line: If all you want is a simple, no-frills seat belt, look no further. At a very reasonable price point, this item gets straight to the point: It’s a stretching seat belt that connects to a harness.
What reviewers say: "Our dog's old seat belt would get all twisted because she goes back and forth looking out of the car windows. This one is much better because it has a piece that swivels so it doesn't twist up. It's also the perfect length and the bungee is a nice touch. Overall we're very happy with this purchase." —Yuleta

Simple and efficient.
What reviewers say: "Best purchase I have made for my pet to date. Easy to use, ingenious idea, recommend to anyone looking to secure their pet in the vehicle when moving." —Mathew
