Champion Canine Outfitters seat belt system is USA made and equally as strong as the leading brand.
Following extensive research and testing, we created a system that offers you the convenience and versatility of a quick-release design, and your dog the protection and comfort of a specially engineered safety harness. The CHAMPION Canine Seat Belt System™ includes our CHAMPION Harness™ and CHAMPION Restraint Strap™, which attaches easily to all types of vehicle seat belts, and cargo hooks in SUVs, vans, trucks, and wagons.
During a 30 MPH collision a dog can exert a force of up to 20 times their body-weight! (1200 lbs. for a 60 lb. dog!) Unlike most “car safety harnesses” and walking harness, the CHAMPION System is designed to handle this unusual load and protect your dog by distributing the pressure evenly on the stronger areas of the chest. The wide range of attachment options, adjust-ability, and swivel feature make it easy to restrain your dog, control range of movement, and prevent entanglement – a common problem with other seat belt harnesses. By delivering both easy, dependable operation and the serious protection that your dog deserves, this product has set a new standard for dog travel safety!
The CHAMPION Canine Seat Belt System™ provides:
Special safety harness design – Sizes M-XL can hold up to 2000 lbs.! This is many times stronger than most harnesses. This strength is required to provide reliable protection in an accident or quick stop. Using a D-ring from each side, the CHAMPION Harness does not depend on plastic buckles or metal “tongue buckles” for load bearing on impact. These types of buckles may weaken with wear and abuse, become brittle in cold temperatures, and in our opinion just do not provide adequate protection. This dual-ring feature makes the system very strong and reliable. It can protect your dog even if the quick-release buckles are broken or improperly fastened!
Extra wide side straps – help distribute pressure across your dog’s body reducing the chance of injury. Our M-XL systems use 1 1/2″ straps, and our XS-S sizes use 3/4″ and 1″ straps, at least 50% wider than most walking harnesses.
Extra strong, rounded profile hardware – The swivel snap (sizes M-XL) is a “bull snap” also used to restrain heavy livestock animals, and much stronger than the usual die-cast zinc leash type swivel snaps. The round and D rings used are some of the strongest welded rings available. All hardware features a smooth profile with no sharp edges to injure your dog.
Cushioned, floating chest pad – allows the top of the harness to slide freely to each side, helping to prevent shoulder injuries during a crash or quick stop, and allowing the comfortable use of a shorter (and safer) restraint strap. The V-shaped top of the harness is designed to help stabilize the dog and prevent violent spinning around in an accident.
Heavy duty adjustable CHAMPION Restraint Strap™ – Sizes M-XL are heavy duty 2″ wide nylon webbing and steel adjusters (not the 1″ webbing and plastic adjusters used for leashes and other restraints). This makes the strap stronger, resists twisting up. and helps prevent injury by distributing pressure on your dog’s body.
Wide, smooth nylon webbing – our premium grade washable nylon feels very soft and smooth, and is designed, along with the padded chest strap, to be worn on long road trips and walks without irritating your dog’s skin. The padded chest strap also features a 100% fur-resistant but very soft and comfortable packcloth lining.
Versatile, adjustable – allows dogs to sit up, stand, or lay down. The Restraint Strap adjusts from 10 to 20″ (M-XL, others slightly smaller) to control your dog’s range of movement. The heavy-duty swivel snap lets your dog move around comfortably, even turn circles, without getting tangled.
No-bunch harness design – eliminates the bunching and pinching problems that occur when most harnesses are used with seat belt restraints.
Works in any vehicle – cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, Jeeps, and even aircrafts! the Quick Link makes this system very easy to use with different seat belts or tie-down hooks, and easy to move to different vehicles. For more info click here for the instruction guide.
Adapts to your dog’s needs – choose maximum restraint or allow more movement. Dogs can stand, sit or lie down.
Quick release buckles and hardware – easy to put on, take off and adjust. Long trips are easy, even with multiple stops and breaks, because of the versatile two-piece design.
Great walking/athletic harness – The CHAMPION Harness™ is great for any use with any leash (you can even use the Restraint Strap™ as a short lead). It doesn’t just double as a standard walking harness, it outperforms them! The V shaped top of the harness helps you to steer and control your dog.
Designed to provide big reflection for safety at night, and still look great in any light condition, MOONGLOW™ Harnesses are great for both temporary use and everyday wear. MOONGLOW™ Products are available in 2 color choices to match out MOONGLOW™ Collars and Leads, both reflective laminates are sewn onto our soft, high grade black nylon webbing:
High-Luminescence Yellow – the brightest reflective material we have found, and the best choice for safety – very noticeable when lit by headlights, street lamps, or even moonlight. It will reflect much better than most other laminates and woven-in white or gray reflectives.
Indigo Electric Blue – reflects less light than the yellow, but will still light up and be noticeable under headlights or street lamps. Has a very cool glowing effect under certain lighting, subtle but effective.
