We take active steps in our cars to ensure our own safety and the safety of our fellow passengers. The Ruff Wear Load Up Harness does the same for your 4-legged co-pilot and allows you to concentrate on the road.
All the features of the Ruff Wear Load Up harness are simple, easy to use and offer protection and safety for your dog when you are adventuring.
The Load Up harness is a harness that is meant to go inside the car while your dog is sitting in the back seat. It is able to attach to the seatbelt so in the event of quick movements in the car it is really going to keep your dog safe. You have seatbelts for everyone else in your car, why not have a seatbelt for your dog as well?
The Load Up harness isn’t only for the car. You can take it outside on short walks. There is a really great attachment point that you can attach your leash to the dog, take it on walks. This is a great thing for road trips when you know you are going to be on the road for long miles. You want to keep your dog safe. But you are going to take pit stops and take him for short walks and that sort of thing. So we will take a look at all the features. . All the little buckles and attachments points are really durable and it is what you can expect from Ruff Wear.
Combining the multiple attachment points where you can adjust the harness and the wide straps here, it makes it really comfortable for your dog. So there is just one part in the front that actually goes over the dog’s head. The other two straps on the side come up really easily. So if I demonstrate that, the strap here on the side clips in really easily and fast. So while this isn’t a harness for every day long term use, this is great for short walks, like I said, on road trips and that sort of thing. And the straps are nice and wide. It has a really wide attachment point, especially underneath of the dog. So if you are in any incident where the car has to stop quickly, it is going to hold the dog back, but it is not going to hurt them in any way. So really comfortable, really easy attachment here.
This attaches easily to your car’s seat belt. And here I have go the Load Up harness oriented so that the top is here on the top. There is this really easy to use wide attachment point right here. And so in order to clip your dog in or buckle your dog into the seat belt, you unjust have to put the harness on the dog and attach the seatbelt through this attachment point back here. Once you have enough of the seatbelt pulled through, you can clip it right into the side of the seatbelt.
So this actually allows your dog to have some movement inside the car. They are not strapped down. They are not going to feel really claustrophobic. But in the event that you have to stop suddenly, this is going to really protect your dog, again, with that wide strap here on the chest of the dog. If anything were to happen, it would protect your dog from lunging forward.
So, again, with the seat belt, if anything were to happen with the dog, they wouldn’t fly forward in the car. This also helps them to stay put. So while they do have a little bit of movement, they are not able to jump into the front seat. They are not able to jump into the back and cause a commotion in the car. You can have two dogs in here together and they wouldn’t get tangled with each other, so a really great safety feature for your dog and for you.
As you can see, we have got the Dirtbag seat cover here. And the Load Up harness integrates perfectly with that seat cover. So these two in tandem are going to really help keep your dog safe on your next adventure.
Up, up, Sam.
