Dog Harness??

Looking for a good dog harness for an 80lb dog. I would love to find something secure enough for my dog to sit in the front seat and not fall out with the doors off. If such a thing exists I would love some suggestions!!

Go to Petco or Petsmart, or any good pet store really, and they'll have harnesses the fasten in like a seatbelt. Works fine for my Shepard.

The length is adjustable. My dog has been using one since the day I brought her home, in the YJ, without a top or doors, in the front seat....7 years ago.

In the old YJ.



In the TJ.





Here she is wearing it, on pit stop.



This is what the part that connects to the harness and fastens into the seat belt looks like.



I give her just enough leash to lean her head out and see what's going on. She usually just lays in the back seat on the hwy, but in town she likes to stand up and look around.

She likes to lay down, and is a bit too big to do that in the front seat, but I have had her up there. It works the same front or back.

Ok. Ill give it a shot. My dog likes to sit in the front seat. I tried harnessing him in that back. He didnt like it and it made me uncomfortable not really being able to see him. Plus now I have too much stuff in the back.

I just actually picked up {this one} in coyote tan.
I use a shortened lead clipped into a hook secured in the center of the tub and clipped on with a climbing caribiner. She doesn't budge!

Ruff wear make very good products, their harness's are some of the best in the industry and will last a lifetime.. They also have dog repelling harness's if you're so inclined..LOL

I got my dog the web master.. the aluminum anchor in in the back, so he can lean out when he want to sniff tail, and not get into trouble.. I have mine anchored in the middle of the upper roll bar, and when the rear seat is in the CJ, its on the floor in the middle, tied to both front seats.. they seem to work best for him. Always centered in the vehicle, and enough slack he can lay down on the seat or floor.
The web master also has a nice hand strap along the ridge of the back.

i have a body harness similar to that, but i also drilled a hole in each L/R rollbar and put in a eye bolt appx 24" off floor, and connected a fat chain between the L/R rollbars, then connected my dog to the CENTER of it w/ a regular big brass key hook.

keeps my dog centered in the vehicle, and completely secured.....and looks pretty cool too
