Dog Seat Belt – Keep Your Dog Safe While Travelling
Keep your dog safe and properly restrained while travelling. Not doing so could cause an accident, is against the law and could invalidate your car insurance.
SAVE A LIFE
Dogs can sometimes get a little over excited or scared in the car and can easily become a distraction to the driver. Distracted drivers are much more likely to be involved in an accident and are a danger to themselves, other road users, pedestrians and their dogs. Keep your dog tethered to their seat. Stop them from becoming airborne during accidents or sudden braking. This dog seat belt will also prevent them from jumping out of car windows.
STAY WITHIN THE LAW
Not having your dog properly restrained in the car could mean you are breaking the law. Motorists could be slapped with a £100 on-the-spot fine if they are seen to be distracted while driving. More serious offences could land you with fines of up to £2,500, get nine points on your licence and possibly need a re-test.
Rule 57 of the Highway Code states: “When in a vehicle make sure dogs or other animals are suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you, or themselves, if you stop quickly. A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog cage or dog guard are ways of restraining animals in cars.” If you fail to do this, you could be charged with “careless driving”.
PROTECT YOUR INSURANCE
If you are involved in an accident and the cause of that accident can be in any way connected to an unrestrained dog, then you risk voiding your insurance cover. An insurance company could be well within their rights not to pay out on a claim.
We all know how keen insurance companies are to find a reason not to have to pay out on a claim. If they can in any way claim that your dog was not properly restrained in the car and was a factor in the accident then you risk losing any cover.
Only use this type of dog car seat belt with a dog body harness. Use with a collar could lead to your dog being injured.
Designed with a 2 cm seatbelt clip, it is compatible with most vehicles. With a quick-release buckle, you can easily attach this safety belt to your dog’s harness. Grab yours today, to keep your pet safely restrained, and secure in your vehicle while driving.
The best way to reduce the risk of a distracted driving crash is to take precautions to limit the opportunity your animal has to cause a distraction. The most effective way to do this is by investing in some type of restraint for your dog. Our dog seatbelt provides an easy and stylish solution by allowing you to clip it onto your dog’s body harness. The seat belt is easily adjustable and the rotating clip allows your dog to freely sit, lay down or stand.
