Just saying that I sell them and this one is just as nice/quality restraint as others that cost more than twice as much. I sell these for $12.99. Others just like it can cost up to $40. But I agree price is not a problem when protecting my dog!

Not for the front seat, but this seems to be the safest I've seen.

That one looks nice but I see one thing that concerns me. It looks like it could pull the front and rear of the dog together underneath in a collision causing serious back problems if it doesnt snap the back. You have 2 tethers tied into one point. Its like taking a rope and tying one end of the rope to one end of a rolled up towel and the other end of the rope to the other end of a rolled up towel and then lifting in the middle which will cause the towel to fold up. If someone could design one that just has a tether on the bottom side rather than the top it would allow the dog the same amount of freedom that B.U.P. gives but won't cause too much stress on the back during a hard hit on the trails or a hard hit from a collision.

That was a worry I had as well. I have a dachshund and having a little control over the rear end had me thinking this would be a good alternative. Otherwise the back 1/3 of him is flopping around.

Not sure there is a best solution other than to be diligent, go slow and keep your nose in the wind.

I just sell them. I have a dog store that sells all kinds of products and grooms pups. Been doing it almost 10 years and been through a lot of different venders. This just happens to be the first thread that deals with my job.

I'm thinking of trying to come up with my own design using all the ideas I have seen out there and having it have only one contact point and have it underneath. And from all the others I have seen I dont like how there is a chance of the one around the neck area actually having a chance of choking my dog. Which is a problem I see with the ones attached to the back because when it pulls on the back it will want to pull up on the neck area. I think I may have a solution to all of that but just need to get some material together and do some measurements and get a prototype made. Also thinking of making some kind of harness attachment that can be used with CJ lap belts so that they can still move around with the retractable side but it will hold in an impact and on the other side its permanently attached to keep her from sliding out the side. 2 points of contact for left and right and still keep her from possibly going forward. Might even add a loop on the top side to hook a leash into the rollbar but I don't think it will be needed.

Just make sure the pup's lead is attached to a harness and not a collar and he can't be thrown overboard.
