This auto harness should only be used in the back seat because it is only safe for your dog to travel in the back, not in your lap or face. Be safe!

If you were to get into a car accident your dog would still be killed from the airbag so it kind of defeats the purpose.

because the front airbag will kill your dog - more dangerous than hitting a kid.

widest part of chest and neck (can be loose). Might also have to measure gap between legs if you have a skinny dog.

The harnesses will come in sizes by pound and by inches. For example, my harness is a size Medium and it says that it will fit dogs between 25-50 pounds, or 18-22".

My dog is exactly 50 pounds, so according to the label she could have worn a medium or a large. To figure out which size would fit better, I had to measure her. So you take a tape measure or a string, and put it around the dog just behind its front legs and up to between or just behind its shoulder blades. My dog measured 19", so she wears a medium-sized harness.

Question

What size should I get for my dog?

I have a 1 1/2 year old boxer who only weighs 60 pounds, he's super skinny but very muscular. According to his weight, he should have a large, but his girth is about 28-29 inches which would be an extra large. Which size would be better?

It is difficult to explain but what I consider a serious flaw in the harness subjecting the dog to escape is what makes your question difficult to answer. If you look at the picture provided on the website, look at the straps coming from the neck area down to the tummy area. This is one continuous strap that SLIDES when pulled on. I bought a medium for my 31 lb Boykin Spaniel and I make sure to adjust it to for him perfectly before we leave. However, his pulling loosens the area around his chest and gives him plenty of room to walk out of it. I am going to buy industrial strength Velcro today and see if I can get the straps to stay in place once I adjust them. Others have also had problems with the straps loosening because the material is to silky. One person suggested sewing them but I am going to try the Velcro as it seems easier. I'll post later to let you know if it went well. If not, I will be looking for another harness to go with this tether - which I love!

I had the same issue and called Bergan directly. They said to go by the dog's weight and that the straps have ample length for adjustment. I went by this advice and was fine.

Yes! There is adjustment allowed in the tether strap so dog can move a little, stand and lie down, just not roam the entire back seat. Beware of proper fit - cannot adjust the front strap - was a problem with my 32 lb. terrier beagle who climbed out easily - hope it fits your dog fine!

Absolutely!!! The tether is hooked between the top and bottom cushions so it is very easy for the dog to lay down.

Technically yes, practically, no. It works as a walking harness, but buyer beware, the straps shift and move allowing dogs to slips out of the harness and get loose.

I don't see why not. Mine are where the video shows them to be - and it took me a couple of min to get the tether hooked because the hook is fairly large so I had to work at getting it in between the cushions. I actually think it would be simpler to attach it above the seat. I love the tether. The harness just has one serious flaw if your dog is a puller or has any strength behind him.
