    Evening all,

    can anyone recommend a harness for my girls while travelling.

    currently they sit/lie in the boot of the estate but we would like a harness
    that can be used with seatbelts or some sort of anchorage.

    Cheers

    We use the Ancol one in the car for our Cairn Charlie and he goes in a crate on the motorhome.

    Bought mine off Ebay but Pets at Home have great choice and you can probably try them on the dogs first. If you have a local independent pet shop they would also probably fit them on the dogs and order in if you need a different size.
    Mine don't have padded ones but I think they must be more comfortable. They last for years once the dog is fully grown so with hindsight I'd have bought better quality from local pet shop.

    Harnesses are a good idea as long as the dogs are OK with them, we had one dog if put on a harness would always find a way to get round and would chew the seatbelt, expensive.

    We went to crates, never had a problem they love them.

    This one I can answer. I may not know much about motorhomes but I do about dogs, nice to feel useful. :BigGrin:

    I have got the Pets at Home ones. They are not as cheap as the Anchol ones that are on Ebay but I wanted to anchor my two big ones down not sit them in seats so they dont have the fitting that fits directly into the seatbelt. You can use them on a seatbelt though. They have a D ring at one end and a leash clasp at the other. We are really pleased with them.

    we already have the same setup in our cars so to avoid the need to move gear between them bought a set of these last week

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170727087618?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

    absolute bargain at under £2 delivered and good quality. He also sells matching harnesses very cheap too. Dont be put off by the cheap price, as I say, the quality is better than many I've seen in the pet shops

    Far safer to restrain your dog using the seatbelt as in a collision, your much loved family pet will become a heavy missile that could kill you, and him/her:Eeek:

    Hi 2dogs,

    I would suggest you to check the German sites.
    In Germany you are obliged to have a dog, at least, on a harness while driving. This means they have checked it and have issued an approval mark for it. (TÜV und GS geprüft)

    For our little doggie Giddy we have choosen the Allsafe Hunde-Sicherheitsgurt TÜV-geprüft

    Not saying you have to buy this one, just want you to make sure you will get the safest.

    Of course there are safer ways to transport your dogs though

    Hope this is of help
    Paul and Ineke

    Thanks all for the replies,

    ideally cages, but would need a bus to fit the size needed.

    local pet store maybe the option,
    Cheers
