Harnesses work well for dogs that like lots of space to shift around during car rides, and are the best choice for substantial small dogs like the Shetland sheepdog or Welsh corgi. These safety straps work just like a harness you'd use for walking your pup, fitting across his chest, under his front legs and fastening around his back. However, you must make sure you purchase a harness especially meant for buckling into a vehicle because it needs to be properly secured using the seatbelt. Once your dog has been snapped in, he will still be able to lie down, sit and stand in the backseat to observe as much (or as little) of the action around him as he wants.
