Does your pup like to go for vehicle rides? I know Dixie does. The only difficulty is she’s all over the place which hampers Safe Travel. She goes from the back seat to the front seat, she’s up at the window to see what’s going on, and then she’s in my lap to rest for a while.

None of this is good. The result ….. potential danger ….. so guess what? Dixie hasn’t gotten to ride very much, and when the she has its been in a pet carrier. Not the best choice, but a safer one than her being foot loose.

So I went about doing my homework on Safe Travel for pups and I found several eye opening things. First is a video of what happens to pups during an accident. One pup is tethered in the back seat and the other runs free in the back seat. The video is with test dummies, but that doesn’t lessen the visual impact.

Wow! That gets your attention. Now let’s talk SOLUTIONS!

I kept digging and I found this device called an Auto Zip Line. It allows for back and forth movement plus pup can sit or stand. This device also provides the security needed for unexpected driving moments we don’t want to think about.

This leash and zip-line system connects right to Dixie’s harness and makes it easy to get on the road with her. The leash connects and disconnects easily to and from the zip line when getting in or out of the vehicle. that way when Dixie gets out of the vehicle she’s leashed and can’t get away.

This system greatly enhances Safe Travel. Here’s a quick vid on how a zip line works.

Let me recap the advantages of a zip line:

  • Convenient to getting pup in and out of vehicle
  • Can be used between any two fixed points in the vehicle
  • Works with all vehicle seat belts
  • Pup can’t jump out of the vehicle when the door is open


In service to pups everywhere,

ps: it’s wise to seek the advice of a vet for your pup.

Some folks don’t yet have a Harness for their pup. If you’re in this situation please know that the Zip Line, Leash, and Harness are available as a set.
