If you look at the trendlines, dog helmets is a billion-dollar business.

"We tested them to the child safety restraint standard and we experienced a 100-percent failure rate to protect either the consumer or the dog," said CPS founder and CEO Lindsey Wolko.

"The Center for Pet Safety would not disclose which harnesses the nonprofit tested out of fear even fewer people will secure their pets. "

We wouldn't want people to not use the thing we just proved doesn't work... Kinda like encouraging people to buy into ponzi schemes because they'd be total assholes if the one they didn't invest in happened to be the real deal.

Oh, if I get in an accident in my Jeep I figure we'll both die. The harness is just to keep him from jumping out.

Um, CBS, the purpose of a dog harness isn't to protect the dog in case of accident, it's to stop the animal from getting off his seat and prancing all over the car.

In all reality, despite the failure rate, it would be better to secure your dog in a harness if only to prevent him/her from becoming a meat missile in an accident.

Hmm... guess I didn't read it thoroughly enough. Then what's the point of the harness? They should out the manufacturer so we can avoid it. I hope it's not the one I use.

According to TFA, it's all if them. Which is why I wish they would name them, as I suspect they haven't actually tested *all* of them. For instance, EzyDog makes a harness that seems quite useful.

They absolutely will stop securing their pets when they find out that everyone involved is much better off without the damn harness, and you SHOULD be reporting it so that people will stop securing their pets with these killing machines.

Article days no states require dog seatbelts. Pretty sure NJ does. Anyone able to confirm or correct?

See, this is where CPS has lost all credibility.  They just demonstrated that every single harness they tested failed but they refuse to disclose which harnesses were actually tested.  Instead of being honest and admitting that they're terrified of an avalanche of manufacturer lawsuits, they apparently prefer to hide behind the statement that a (demonstrably) useless harness is somehow better than no harness.

The four best-selling harnesses were  tested.  So if you see it at Petsmart, it doesn't work.

Doesn't mean anything else works.

yeah, was an earlier thread about dogs on laps.
Actually my dog is so small if he were to be on my lap during an airbag inflation it would go over his head. I have a better chance of getting cock-punched by the airbag than the dog getting hit.

That sucks. Thankfully, the ride to the dog ranch isn't very far from my home and pretty low speed the entire way. Still, I wish the article would've actually recommended the best way to secure your dog.

Securing a dog is cruel and unnecessary.  Convincing yourself that you're protecting your baby is what sells harnesses and raises donations

FTFA: while injuries are much worse when drivers let their dogs roam free inside a vehicle, simply using a harness often isn't enough.

So it's very much a step in the right direction.  Not seeing the problem.  I'm sure they'll get better...aren't dog harnesses a very new thing?

Pet restraints will follow the path of child safety seats:

1. Over-engineer them
2. Charge $200 for them
3. Get them made mandatory
4. Penalize those who cannot afford them
5. Prohibit resale of them
6. Profit

Say what you will. I'm not letting my dog ride in the truck bed, nor will I let him ride up front. If it's the only way to keep him in the backseat and keep me from getting distracted, then that's what I'll use. I'm sure you feel leash laws are cruel and unnecessary too.
