Description & Size guide

The Load Up Harness by Ruffwear has had a revamp for 2021. Now available in Slate Blue, a brand new stylish colour, and new metal side release buckles that make the harness even easier to put on and take off, and easier to adjust too. If you are looking for a dog harness that will keep your pooch safe and secure in the car for all your exciting road trips together, this is the one for you.

This dog harness has been crash tested and designed to transport dogs comfortably and securely in the car. With durable hardware, material, and components, this is a specialised travel dog harness that will stand the test of time and provides safety for your dog during any sudden vehicle movements. It has been dynamically tested by MGA Research Corp, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Contracted Test Facility under the conditions outlined in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.

The loop on the back acts as a universal seatbelt attachment where you can feed your car seat belt through and secure as normal to keep your dog safe in the car on long distance road trips or just a quick car ride. Featuring four adjustment points to create a customised fit for your pooch, you can even use the handy Velcro ends to roll up the excess webbing after you’ve made your adjustments, and Velcro around the other strap to secure it out of the way. The metal side release buckles are easy to use, simple to adjust and quick to unbuckle when it’s time to get out of the car. The overall construction of the harness is nice and padded so is super comfortable for your dog to be wearing for extended periods of time. If you need to stop the car to stretch your legs or have a quick toilet break, simply attach your dog’s leash to the belt attachment so they can get out for some fresh air and do their business too!

All materials used are made from Bluesign® approved materials, which means it has been created in certified facilities that are safer and more sustainable for the environment, the workers, and for you.  

Now that we are travelling more with our furry friends, going on staycation holidays, driving to hiking destinations, camping, road tripping and even going to doggy day care, you can be sure your pup will be safe and secure in the car wearing the new Load Up Harness.
