What’s the first thing you do when you get into a car? More than likely, it’s put on your seat belt. It’s something you learn as a kid and never stop doing into adulthood. It’s the best way to stay safe in the event of an accident, after all.

So then why does the seat belt rule not apply to dogs? Think about it—when we drive our furry friends around, they just lie down on the seats in the back, with nothing to protect them!

But what happens if we stop short or someone hits us from behind? We don’t even want to know the answer to that.

Hopefully we won’t have to find out, since someone finally invented a safety harness for dogs when we take them on a ride!

It’s called the Rocketeer Pack by the brand ZuGoPet. The Rocketeer Pack is a dog harness that acts like a seat belt to protect your dog during car rides, and is known as the “safest multi-functional pet car seat.”

How do we know that’s true? The harness is certified by the Center of Pet Safety, so you have peace of mind the whole journey. Know how important this is: “Other companies who are not certified by CPS will most likely not protect your dog in a car accident,” ZuGoPet writes on its website.

The Rocketeer Pack can hold dogs up to 25 pounds and under and comes in sizes extra small through extra large.

What’s more, the harness also works as a backpack when you’re not using it to strap in your dog to the car. Think of a baby Bjorn but for your pup.

Besides having raving customer reviews, this pet harness is approved by a veterinarian surgical specialist too.

“This is a useful device for any pet owner traveling in a car with their small dog because if used properly and comfortably, it will limit excessive motion and potential harm to the dog during sudden stopping, starting and swerving maneuvers,” says Josheph Harari, MS, DVM, DACVS. “Furthermore, it appears to me that dogs can rest adequately and safely within the harness and not deleteriously affect their spine of extremities, including joints.”

You can check out other reviews by leading veterinarians and just good old happy customers who can’t get enough of this harness on the ZuGoPet website.

“Give your loved one the safety they deserve!” the company writes. We can’t argue with that!
