Almost all dog harnesses don't work

    Heard on the news that of the 25 different brands of dog vehicle harnesses tested in Sydney, Australia, only two would be effective in an accident or sudden stop. Even at a 20 MPH collision, none of the other 23 could get a pass rating.

    I don't have a restraining car harness for my Corgi but if I did get one it would need to do the job otherwise it is a waste of money,a false sense of safety and a strapped-in dog who would prefer to be non-harnessed.

    Wuzz - has the retraining harness you have been actually tested ie you have first hand knowledge of its effectiveness - otherwise how do you qualify that it "works really well for my dogs".

    Here are the names of the only two vehicle harnesses that passed the tests:

    Purina Roadie (for dogs under 35kg)
    Sleepypod Clikit Utility (for medium-large dogs)
