    RECALL NOTICE for harnesses purchased after August 25, 2021: Notices have been sent out to customers. For more information, we are working with Ruffwear to assist in this process. Please click here for more info: Load Up Harness Recall. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

    The Ruffwear Load Up™ Harness is an automotive canine travel harness designed to safely transport dogs to and from adventures. Built with strength-rated hardware and components, the Load Up harness has been successfully tested to withstand the rigors of a vehicle crash test. Attaches to existing seatbelts for a universal fit. Keeps dogs secure during sudden vehicle movements and allows drivers to focus. Easy to put on and adjust, comfortable for dogs to wear during extended travel, and can be left on dogs for bathroom breaks and during rest stops.

    What's New? Easier on/off with a new forged Anodized Aluminum 6061 side-release buckle. Out with the pass-through buckle, in with the side-release buckle. While both styles offer the strength-rated construction critical to this application, the new forged Anodized Aluminum 6061 side-release buckle offers a much easier on/off experience – something frequent asked for by customers. The shell material also got an upgrade from a durability standpoint!

    • Strong, secure harness for car travel
    • Metal, strength-rated hardware
    • Easy to use metal side-release buckle
    • Padded construction is comfortable for extended wear
    • Universal seat belt attachment
    • Dynamically tested at MGA Research Corp (a US Highway Traffic Safety Administration contracted test facility) under the conditions outlined in Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213
