Read reviews and knew the Pupsaver car seat was the best choice. My 13 lb Shih Tzu was tethered in the seat and within minutes settled and laid down beside me in her car seat. Normally Ste would pace and be anxious. The attention getting whimper is still her way of getting attention but I know she and I are both safe with her in the car seat abd me giving my attention to driving. Thank you Pupsaver!!!!
My 14 lb Havanese is a nice fit for this seat. He enjoys looking out, yet settles well and sleeps. A Havanese is a longish dog. I think a 30 lb dog would be squeezed in this seat, but is it GREAT for toy breeds.
Our dog finds the seat awkward and is prone to trying to stand up.
The problem i have with the PupSaver is that it rolls and the dog stands on the back it needs a quick release that pulls back down but when the seatbelt tightens it releases and let the back pop up. I’m already tired of having to adjust it 5x times for a 10 minute drive. If this did not happen it would be 5 star review.
Installation of the seat was really pretty simple. Fitting the harness was a little more difficult as there were no directions for that. After having my pup wear it upside down the first time we figured it out and now we’re in good shape. The boosters on the sides allow her to snuggle in and ride in comfort.
