I am also interested in the Sleepypod safety harness. Had chosen one and placed it in the shopping cart and then noticed the disclaimer of sorts about Greyhounds, Whippets, etc. Our George Byron has a huge chest...he's a large Whippet. So I have misgivings about the harness but will reconsider if current users can recommend it and have had positive experiences using it.

Thanks!

I recently updated ours from the other ones discussed on this thread (Champion K9 Designs) to the Ruffwear Load Up Harness https://www.amazon.com/Ruffwear-Vehicle ... B00R36BB20

It has been crash tested, fits the whippets well, and is fully adjustable. Here's an instructional video from the company for fitting it.



Hope this helps

It's actually not as bad as it looks, though I was glad to have seen the video. It took me about 5 minutes from unpacking to having it fit my girls. I'd watched the video weeks before and didn't even go back to reference it. Once it's sized correctly it's fine - no more messing about, just click into place and off you go. Putting on and off is easy, and it's very secure. A good comfortable chest piece and not relying on plastic clips or buckles. The buckle system they have is really secure.

Do you know how fast were they tested?
I only drive in highways, that's why i'd really like the best there is

You say they are very adjustable, but they only say the measure for chest, for example my boy is 64cm chest, 36 cm neck, so it would adjust like that the size Small?

Its ruffwear better than sleepy pod? for sleepy pod there were testemonials of surviving dogs at speeds of 90-100km/h

I'm sorry, another thing: it takes you 5 minutes per dog per EVERTIME you have to take them out somewhere by car?

I got my two small S harnesses from ruffwear

They feel high quality and high resistance. Its super adjustable.
Now the only thing remaining to be tested is if it works - which i hope i never have to find out

About 5 minutes or so to size it the first time. Once the size is right it just takes seconds to put on and take off

Sorry it took so long to reply. I missed the post. Looks like they’ve arrived and look good on your ‘kids’.

I’m sorry I don’t remember how fast they were tested at, but I do know I trust the company to make some of the best and most durable all purpose harnesses and I’m super pleased with the sturdiness of these. In particular I like the protective chest piece. I prefer crates, but hubby’s car isn’t set up for one so on the rare occasion they go with him they are belted.

I hope they’ve adjusted to them :)

This is a great thing to have for rides. I feel guilty I didn't have one before. I would have my dog on the front seat and worry about hitting the brakes. I will also have to teach Gibson to stay in the truck with the windows down if I get out. In Florida I can't leave windows up with him inside. For now he lays down in the back seat area and does not roam. We drove an hour or more taking him home and he was well behaved. Surprised me and still is good.

I am going to wait buying till he gets closer to adult size. Any advice on sizing welcome. Can I adjust the adult size small enough for a puppy?
