PawSafe Seatbelt Review: Driving with your dog in the car can be dangerous and the law is quite strict and severe about such mindless behaviour. Of course, we know our dogs and we do not want to crash either, but it is our responsibility to take an extra 45 seconds to secure your dog’s car seatbelt.
Over 400,000 people are involved in car accidents each year due to distractions, oftentimes caused by an excited pup in the backseat. Sudden braking, sharp turns and swerving are enough to be disastrous for your pooch, leading to injury or even death.
What Is PawSafe Seatbelt?
The PawSafe Dog Seat Belt is a breakthrough new invention that protects your dog in the car. One end of the PawSafe Seat Belt simply clips into any standard Seat Belt slot. The other end clips into your dog’s harness.
The result is that with the PawSafe® Seat Belt, your dog is safe, comfortable, and under control. While you get to drive without distraction or disturbance. Because you wouldn’t allow an unrestrained toddler in the car — so why do it with your dog?

How PawSafe Seatbelt Works?
With the PawSafe Seatbelt, your dog stays comfortable and securely fastened. Whether he’s in the front or back seat during a car ride. The simple design allows for ease of use. Featuring a strap with a clasp on one end and a seatbelt buckle on the other end.
Simply attach the clasp to your dog’s harness and snap the buckle into place on the seat. Then you’re ready to go! The strap is made from heavy duty Nylon fabric to keep your dog situated during fast turns and sudden stops. A sturdy, aluminium alloy clasp swivels 360 degrees to accommodate comfort in case he wants to sit. Stand or lay down.
How-to Use Your PawSafe Dog Seatbelt
The PawSafe Dog Seatbelt is simple to use and will work with any car vehicle model. That utilises a standard seatbelt buckle.
Adjust the size of the car dog seatbelt based on the size of your dog. The aim is not to completely restrict your dog (Fido still can poke his head out the window!). But limit their movement so it cannot present a danger to both themselves, you and your passengers. For smaller dogs you will want to shorten the seatbelt. Larger dogs will require a bit more slack.
Prepare your car for your journey and clip your dog seatbelt into one of the available car seat buckles.
Place your dog in your car and attach the 360° swivel clasp to your dog’s harness. It’s important to use a harness and not a collar to prevent neck injuries in case of any sudden impact.
