In a split second, I slammed on my brakes and saw my dog Gizmo nearly break his neck. That's when I knew...
Hi, I'm Ray Bennett and I invented the PupSaver. Back in 2006, I had my pup Gizmo in the car with me as we ran errands. A driver pulled out in front of us and I slammed on my brakes. While the cars didn't collide, Gizmo did—with the dashboard. Although he wasn't seriously injured, I knew he could have been.
That's when I knew I needed to take my experience in the auto industry and create the world's safest canine car seat.

Our Mission Is to Save Dogs' Lives, One at a Time.
When we set out to make the PupSaver, we pulled out all the stops. We met with veterinarians, engineers from Georgia Institute of Technology, auto industry experts and infant safety seat manufacturers. The result of a decade's worth of R&D is what you see today: the only rear-facing, crash test-worthy canine safety seat on the market. PupSaver is, in fact, the only canine travel safety product to ever pass a 35 mph sled test with a seat made for dogs up to 45 pounds. The quality of these seats is of utmost importance to us, because it is the structural integrity of PupSaver seats that separate them from all other canine vehicle restraint systems. We personally guarantee every single product we sell to be 100% free of manufacturer defects. If at any point in the first 30 days you're unhappy, for any reason, with your PupSaver, just email us and we'll make it right.
We're on a mission to protect the lives of dogs, and your dog's safety is why we started this business. Thank you for trusting us with your canine safety seat purchase, and for making your dog's safety a top priority.
At PupSaver, we also believe in the power of community outreach to save dogs' lives. And our community is made up of every charitable organization that we are able to support through your purchases. A percentage of every PupSaver sold is donated through our rescue charity outreach program. You can read more about the wonderful rescue and animal welfare organizations that you have helped us to support here.
We love our pupsaver and are thankful you make such a fine product. We wonder what took us so long to purchase and, again, feel grateful you have designed and tested a seat that can truly save a pet’s life. Winnie got used to the new routine quickly and now sits in her seat waiting to get clipped in.
After some extensive research, I found an article that mentioned Pupsaver was the only crash-tested car seat for dogs on the market. I was hesitant about the price tag, but so glad we took the plunge! The Pupsaver 45 allowed us to travel 26 hours round trip with our 36 pound beagle, Duncan, who has a strong car aversion. We usually can't go more than 10 minutes in the car without drooling, whining, and panting, where Duncan eventually creeps up to the passenger seat and claws on the window. This time around, he was perfectly content and didn't slide around on turns or slip up to the front seat. Perhaps even more important, the Pupsaver ensured the driver was never distracted.
We ordered the accompanied harness, but the medium didn't fit great. I contacted customer service, who sent us a smaller size to try free of charge.
Overall, a great product, and loved supporting a small family business in the USA!
My doggies love their PupSavers, but yes, We have had a few spills. Though I have used spot cleaners which have worked great for whipped cream and hamburger patties, it’s nice to know I now have a back up.
Great people to deal with and their products cant be beat!
Took a bit of time for me to adjust as my girl sits behind the passenger seat. Once in place, just a quick glance in my rear view mirror allowed a ‘perfect view’.
I can’t speak highly enough of my Pupsaver. My little guy finds it comfortable. It keeps him from distracting me while I drive, and it keeps him close and safe.
The build quality and engineering is fantastic!
I’m so happy I got it!
I was genuinely surprised when I took it out of the bow at how heavy it was. I mean, it’s not like lifting weights or anything, but it is very substantial. I’m so glad I found a car seat for my little dog. I’m telling all my dog owner friends about Pupsaver.
Harness metal buckles are sturdy . But too heavy for my petite girl. Also metal buckles make it near impossible to leave the harness in the car with the car seat. They get way too hot.
Very well made buckles, light material and easy to put on
Great design, comfort and style!
PupSaver Compatible Harnesses - Black & White Houndstooth
Right away Linus felt comfortable and settled in. I feel relieved knowing he will be safe in the event of a crash.
We have used the harness on several outings in Flora Bama’s PupSaver seat. The PupSaver harness adjusts well and the buckle is a very sturdy metal closure with metal adjustment buckles. I had to adjust the PupSaver Car Seat metal latch under the cushion so when it was attached to the front of the harness it holds Flora securely in the seat. The harness is a “no choke” harness and attaches well to a leash too. We are happy that Flora Bama can sit comfortably and securely in her PupSaver car safety seat using her PupSaver Harness.
The wedge works exactly as you would expect. The non slip base and seat insert keep it firmly in place and my pup can almost see out the window (he's not very tall). It's a perfect companion for the pupsaver seat.
I ordered this preemptively not knowing how the seat would fit in my car. It does what it says and makes the seat taller while also making it not clam shell while being sat in. My only complaint is there are no instructions that come with it. I know, it's just a boost and sits under the seat, but I struggled with it for a few before I decided to start installing the seat and put the wedge under it halfway done. That seems to be the trick? Other than that, it's great for my bucket seats in the back and we look forward to using it when we get our pup in a few weeks.
