“Recently we were in a fairly minor accident: airbags did not go off, but seatbelts ’locked’ as we were hit from behind. The dogs were fine but I had occasion to email the company and when I mentioned the accident I found out that it is now their policy to replace (at no charge) a harness that has been worn during an accident! This wonderful company is sending me 2 new harnesses and seat belt tethers for free!”

“My dog was in the backseat, buckled into the middle buckle. We were hit very hard. Had she not been buckled in, she would’ve gone flying across the backseat and hit the passenger door. She could’ve been seriously physically hurt and mentally traumatized. Instead, she was 100% fine and just as excited to go on the next car ride as ever. I will never take my dog in the car without one again. Ever.”

“My airbag deployed and the car was totaled, so — not a fender bender. I was shaken up and had a minor concussion. Capone, on the other hand, was unfazed. The harness kept him in his seat and he was completely unhurt. He wasn’t even scared.”
