The Ruffwear Load Up car harness is a dog safety restraint that was independently crash tested at MGA Research Corp (an NHTSA contracted test facility). It was tested under the conditions in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213 and comes with all-metal hardware and a universal seat belt attachment. This harness comes in 5 sizes for pets 13 – 42 inches in girth.
Unlike other harnesses Ruffwear makes, the Load Up is specifically designed for vehicle travel. The harness was designed to keep dogs secure during sudden stops or movements and to keep them in place to reduce driving distractions. A product of customer demand, it was ergonomically designed to make dogs more comfortable for long road trips.
But is the Ruffwear Load Up right for your dog? If you’re already a fan of Ruffwear products, it’s probably a no-brainer. Anyway, we’ll break down the stats for you in this review.
