    Can anyone recommend a safety harness to attach to a car seatbelt that is crash tested. Daughter uses a crate but might need one of these.

    UK suggestions welcome.

    Thanks.

    Crash-tested from the humans' pov, or from the dog's pov?

    The majority of dog car harness/ seatbelt combos are crash tested to mean "we can guarantee using this equipment will not turn your dog into a dangerous in-car projectile". Rather than crash tested to mean "this equipment will try and not seriously injure/ kill your dog in the event of a collision".

    Thanks for those replies - I hadn't considered the subtleties of different types of crash testing. I suppose she would want both driver and dog to be as safe as possible.
