A secured passenger is a safe passenger.

Truck drivers know that wearing a seatbelt is Safety 101, and a seatbelt or car seat for your in-cab canine companion can help keep them safe as well.

Here are three that could help keep your pooch safe as you travel.

Top Paw Booster Seat

The Top Paw Booster Seat sits in the car seat and offers the pet boosted seating with an elevated base frame. It comes with one booster seat and one safety tether. The Top Paw Booster Seat is designed for small and medium-sized dogs, fitting dogs up to 30 pounds.

Pet Gear Signature Pet Car Seat Carrier 

The Pet Gear Signature Pet Car Seat Carrier acts as both a car seat and a pet carrier, with front and top zippered mesh windows and a seat belt strap. It secures with the vehicle seat belt and includes a washable fleece pad cover and tether. It’s available in one size and would fit best for small and medium-sized dogs.

Solvit Pet Car Booster Seat 

The Solvit Pet Car Booster Seat straps to the seat, giving the pet an elevated view out the windows. It has an internal frame design to support the seat from below. A safety leash and front storage pocket are included. The seat liner is removable for easy washing. This booster seat works with all vehicles that have a headrest.

This booster seat comes in three options: medium size holds pets up to 12 pounds, large size holds pets up to 18 pounds and the extra large size holds pets up to 25 pounds. It’s available in white and brown colors.

And don’t forget…

If these pet car seats don’t seem like a good match for your pet, you may be interested in a seat belt modifier for them instead.

Seat belts like the Petmate Seat Belt Clip Tether clip onto your pet’s harness to keep them snug in their seat. You can retract or extend the seat belt as appropriate for your pet’s size. If your dog is larger than most pet car seats are made for, then a harness tether may be a more practical option. The seat belt tether will keep them in place and brace them.
