Crash Tested Dog Car Harness

The Ruffwear Load Up Harness is a fully featured dog car harness that provides protection while providing the comfort and fit of a quality Ruffwear harness.

Built with strength-rated hardware and components, the Ruffwear Load Up harness has been successfully tested to withstand the rigors of a vehicle crash test.

Just put the harness on your dog, and thread the seat belt through the loop on the back and you're good to go!

What makes the Load Up Harness different from other vehicle restraint harnesses for dogs?

Ruffwear’s Load Up Harness combines strength-rated hardware and high-quality webbing and materials to offer a strong, secure restraint for dogs traveling in vehicles. Ruffwear designed the harness with your dog’s comfort and safety in mind. In addition, your dog’s ability to move comfortably in the back seat was built into the design.

The Load Up Harness has been designed to be comfortable, while providing supportive restraint for a dog traveling in the back seat of a vehicle.

The seatbelt attachment point is low and at the base of the dog’s back to:

1) make the harness more comfortable for the dog over long road trips

2) keep the dog in an upright position in the event of a crash

For many years we've used the Ruffwear Web Master Harness as our go-to harness for travels. Due to it's 3-point connection and comfortable fit for our Pluto, the Ruffwear harness was the one we trusted to do the job. Now we couldn't be happier that Ruffwear has now come out with a purpose built car harness that has been crash tested and will provide the best safety AND comfort possible for our pup.

These harnesses r brilliant...possible the best I've seen. We have them for all our dogs and bought one for a friend we are so impressed. They are easy to get on and off the dog, the dogs are happy to play, sleep, eat and all the things they love to do, so the harness doesn't impede the dog's ability to enjoy life. All it does is make our dogs as safe as they can be in a car...just in case something terrible happens. Neal Salan, Sebastopol VIC

Zoe - Thankyou for your help in selecting a car restraint for our Spoodle. She is so comfortable in it and is totally calm. She is now truly ready for some exploring. Jade, Kurrajong Heights NSW

I love this harness. It fits really well and looks comfortable. My dog isn't bothered by it like she was by her old harness. I can highly recommend this product! Vicki Jones, Marion SA

Took me a little while to learn how to drive it, but once I sorted it out it's great. Ours is a little too big, because my growing puppy was between sizes and we opted for the larger one. It works well in the car and seems far more comfortable for her than others we have tried Ruth Gledhill, Deepwater QLD

The Small size fits our 1yr old Border Collie very well. Still working on adjusting a few straps to get that perfect fit, but we're close. She wears it comfortably and we've had many people ask about it. The buckles are all metal, and with a few tugs on the 'attach' loop from different directions, it looks like the weight is distributed over the dog very well in a crash.

I'm very pleased, and the price is minimal to pay for the safety of our pup. Would recommend to anyone.
