"[Lexi] looks beautiful, the leash and a carabiner hook her in safely and she doesn’t tip over when we brake anymore!! I feel much safer and I feel like she’s much safer, without her being a 45kg projectile in my car anymore."
THE FULL STORY.. of how the best Dog Vehicle Safety Harness came about
The Ruff Rider Canine Vehicle Safety Harness was first envisioned by Carl Goldberg in Boulder Co. While traveling down a windy mountain road at five mph, a car driving up the mountain, was traveling on the wrong side of the road. When Carl slammed on his brakes to avoid a collision, his 40kg chocolate lab was ejected from the back seat and thrown through the windshield landing on the hood of the car.
With an inspiration to make vehicles a safer place for dogs and the people riding with them, Goldberg consulted veterinary orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Joseph “Doc Joe” Evans at the Nederland Co. Veterinary Hospital. The result; Ruff Rider Roadie is orthopedically sound and ergonomically correct.
