If you have Guardian Gear brand dog seat belt, a Cruising Companion brand dog seat belt, or a Pet Buckle brand dog seat belt, then the answer is YES! Check out our photos of my yellow Labrador Retriever, Maya, wearing her Guardian Gear brand dog seat belt. As you can see, she has no trouble sitting, standing, or laying down. Since she has more freedom to move about, she is less likely to chew on or wiggle out of her dog seat belt.
The Tru-Fit Smart Harness brand of dog seat belt will restrict your dog’s movement, making it difficult for them to stand up and move around. Some dogs (like Maya) will not tolerate holding still. If your dog moves around while wearing the Tru-Fit Smart Harness brand dog seat belt, then they may get tangled. However, if your dog generally only wants to sit or rest quietly in the car, then the Tru-Fit Smart Harness brand dog seat belt is the best thing for them. Restricting your dog’s movement in the car with a dog seat belt is safer, but not if your dog gets tangled in it. The Pet Buckle brand dog seat belt also has the option of restricting your dog’s movement.
