Please read all included instruction guides and the information below before using any Champion Canine Designs seat belt or truck restraint product!
It is a good idea to put the harness on your dog a few times before putting them in the vehicle. This way they can get used to the harness and are more comfortable with being restrained. If your dog tries to bite or chew the straps, try using a chewing deterrent spray such as “bitter apple”, available at most pet stores.
When using the system the first time, observe your dog’s range of movement. It is possible for a dog restrained by the seat belt system to move enough to interfere with the driver or jump out of the vehicle. It is also possible for some dogs to slip out of the harness. Windows should be rolled up as necessary, and the harness should be checked periodically for correct adjustment.
Airbags may be dangerous to smaller dogs as with children. They may discharge with enough force to break a neck or cause other serious injury. Most dogs, like children, are safer in the rear seat.
It is possible for your dog to become entangled in the seat belt system. If this happens, reattach the Restraint Strap as necessary. It may be easier to unfasten than to untangle a dog in this situation. Unfasten the Restraint Strap from harness if leaving your dog unattended in the vehicle, especially if for a long time. (Do not ever leave your dog in a car in the sun or in warm weather. This can very quickly lead to heat stroke or other life-threatening situations.) Most dogs learn not to become entangled, and actually like the seat belt system because it provides stability during braking, cornering, and accelerating, giving them a sense of security. Some veterinarians even recommend restraint systems to help dogs prone to carsickness. As with introducing anything new to your dog, such as learning to walk with a leash, it may take a few times for your dog to become comfortable riding with a harness, but soon they will learn to use the system, relax, and enjoy the ride.
Keep the CHAMPION Canine Seat Belt System out of the reach of small children.

Please allow at least 1-2 weeks for standard shipping. Some orders may take longer, we do not generally “guarantee” shipping times unless special arrangements are made for expedited shipping.

Domestic orders are usually shipped by US Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation/Email Notification. Please provide a US Mail deliverable address if possible. UPS/FED-EX only addresses may cause shipment delays.
Due to high demand and limited production, some items may be back-ordered and not available for immediate shipment. If an item is back-ordered you will receive a notice, usually within 3 business days, stating the approximate date when we expect the product to be back in stock. As we must wait for suppliers to send us shipments, back-order dates are only an estimate and not a guarantee that we will receive the merchandise that day. Sometimes back-ordered product can be delayed for additional weeks or, in rare cases, months, or even discontinued. We will generally not charge your credit card until we are ready (within 3 business days) to ship your order. In some cases we will split orders into separate shipments in the event of a back-order. You will not be charged extra shipping without your prior approval.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by delayed shipments. In order to provide a large selection of unusual items at reasonable prices, we do not have large inventories of every product. The most popular items are also prone to run out of stock during peak business seasons (holidays, summer). Our concept is a little different, with an emphasis on unique, specialized products, not competing for the fastest shipping or lowest price on a product that every company is selling. While we are working to improve shipping times, if you are uncomfortable with our shipping/customer service terms please do not order online, call us for more info.
