pupsaver houndstooth/black dog car seat

$198.00

Description

PupSaver was designed by a team of Safety Design Engineers, Veterinarians and Auto Industry Professionals who all agree that protecting dogs in accidents from what are referred to as the second and third impacts could save their lives. With that principle in mind they decided that a rear-facing design, which mimicked a child safety seat, was the way to go. It may seem counterintuitive, after years of hearing that the back seat is safest, to use a *PupSaver in the front seat. But we have designed this seat to work in harmony with the passenger side air bag. It is important to draw a distinction between child safety seats, which are far more likely to extend into the passenger airbag deployment zone, and PupSaver. Our safety seats are constructed from ballistic nylon, which acts as an energy absorbing barrier. The seatbelt around the top of the PupSaver will pull it towards the seat in the case of an accident or hard stop. This would not be the case in an accident with a rear-facing child safety seat, which is rigid and has a shaped differently from our seats. They are by no means trying to change the dialogue around back seat safety for children, or encourage anyone who is in favor of putting their dog in the back seat to change their mind. They only mean to provide a solution for those drivers who need or want to have their dog in the front seat, whether for medical reasons, or personal preference. PupSaver is the original all polyester fiber-filled version of this safety seat. It does not require any inflation in the seat back and accommodates dogs up to 30 lbs.

  • Rear-facing design will catch your dog upon impact and act as a protective barrier to prevent contact with hard surfaces.
  • Five total seatbelt-grade plastic clips (reversible for use behind driver and passenger seats) lock PupSaver in place and integrate with seatbelt pretensioner in case of an accident to pull PupSaver safely over your dog.
  • Full polyfill throughout (no Air bag feature, as with new AirPupSaver models).
  • Additional stitching, reinforced nylon backing at all attachment points.
  • Newly added heavy-duty metal hooks for lower LATCH (child safety seat) anchors in the back seat.
  • New all-metal tether attachment system, with metal hook for harness attachment, provides security at the base of the seat.
  • Can be used in the front or back seat.
  • Can double as a pet bed while traveling.

Size: 26" (seat bottom width) x 12" (seat bottom depth) x 18" (seat back height)
