bergan auto harness
These harnesses are pretty good, easy to adjust and comfortable for the dog. When I first bought one, it came with the tether. We recommend these to our clients purchasing pups. However, lately it seems that the tether is no longer included with the harness, which is a real negative. The tether is what makes this harness work. Feeding the seatbelt through the loops is a nuisance, and you risk your pup getting it's legs stuck in the seatbelt. If you use a hammock style seat cover, especially one where the sides can zip up so the pup or it's toy doesn't slip down between the seat and the door, using the seatbelt doesn't work or you have to leave the side open. I attach the tether to the post of the headrest, which works perfectly so my dog doesn't get tangled in the strap when she shifts position. This also keeps the attachment point of the harness higher, so the dog is less likely to get out of the harness. When the attachment point is lower, as with using the seatbelt, if a pup wants to get out of the harness, they have the angle to do so just by forcing themselves straight forward and working themselves out through the neck section. It's not easy but a determined pup can do this. Unfortunately, finding a replacement tether is not easy. The only ones I have found for sale are the small ones. I would need the one for the large size harness. If you are not going to include the tethers anymore, please make the bigger tethers available for separate purchase. If not, I will have to find another harness to recommend.
