Until they get used to "their" areas in the jeep, unfortunately they will wear them. The belts work fine. The dogs seem a little more comfortable about wearing them also. It's a little different ride for them with top and doors off.
Sort of the same reason we started putting our collie shepherd on a seat belt, then when we started looking at the situation, it is much safer for the dog also.
Our boy used to wait until you kinda forgot about him being back there, then suddenly rush the front seat and no matter that you were trying to drive you suddenly had a dog sitting on you.
Wasn't safe without a belt for a variety of reasons.
He got used to it quick, then again what choice did he have?
