When we adopted our dog Sally, we knew she’d be going everywhere with us. We have many adventures planned and want her to be on as many of them as possible.

We feel much safer knowing our Sally has a seatbelt and is safe in case we get in an accident. We’ve reviewed different car restraints for dogs for you to consider. You won’t need all three for your dog, but you may notice that once stands out from the rest, so be sure to read about all of your options below…
