Kurgo: Tru-Fit Dog Harness - Car Safe And No Pull!

The huskies and I are so glad you all stopped by today!
If you have followed my blog for a while, you will know we are huge Kurgo fans. They make quality dog products, and help make it easier to get out of the house and travel as well as other outdoor activities with your dogs. That being said, I am thrilled to bring you the new and improved Kurgo Tru Fit Enhanced Strength Smart Harness.

Quite some time ago, I reviewed the original Tru Fit harness, so I was thrilled when Kurgo contacted me about testing out their updated version.

So, what's different about it?
I'm glad you asked! The new Kurgo dog harness has been updated to pass more rigorous crash testing standards, thus, making travel using the harness a much safer experience for both the dog, and you. These new harnesses have been crash tested at the University of Michigan using the federal motor vehicle safety standard 213 for child restraint systems. You can even see the crash test video here.

The Tru-Fit dog harness comes included with a seat belt tether strap to safely secure your dog to the vehicle belt. Having your dog restrained while travelling is important for numerous reasons - not just to keep them safe in the event of a crash - but also to prevent any distractions that may be caused by your pup while driving. PLUS the broad padded chest provides extra protection as well as comfort.

Even though this harness was specifically designed as a dog safety harness, it is also a great walking tool. You can clip the leash to the back or the front of the harness. Using the halt ring chest clip, the Tru-Fit harness makes a great no pull training tool. When your dog tries to pull, they get turned around, teaching your pup that pulling isn't going to accomplish anything, or get them anywhere!


With 5 adjustment points, you will feel good knowing you can properly fit the harness to your dog. I love that the chest plate is padded because it gives that extra bit of protection to their trachea and sternum while dispersing kinetic energy across the chest.




I would also like to point out the all steel nesting buckles Kurgo uses with their harness - making attaching the harness to your dog easy as 1,2,3! Not just that, but this buckle system is based on the engineering for harnesses used by rock climbers and linesmen, ensuring strength and safety.

Conclusion?
I am thrilled with the new design of this harness. I feel safe bringing Koda in the truck, and I just love how the seat belt tether strap makes it easy to restrain him when we go for a drive. Plus, he just looks darn good in it, doesn't he?

  5. Looks good! We use our seat belt harnesses from Germany which are autobahn approved. The way mom speeds, believe me, the autobahn part is important! Glad you are safe riders.

  8. I like the idea the harness can be used as either a car restraint or to walk with. I think that is pretty handy. Especially if you are traveling to a dog park or somewhere else.

  10. Love the look of this. I have just been using Kilo's normal harness but this looks so much safer. We may do some trips over summer so great to see your review thanks. We may even try to go to K9 Sportfest although the timing is bad as we have a birthday near Minden that weekend. X Susie

  14. It sounds like they have made some great improvements for the safety of this. We still like our harness, and Luke looks as handsome in his Tru Fit harness as Koda looks in the updated version! I think Kurgo makes very high quality products, and we might have to look into this one too.

    1. Thank you for your comment Jessica! That was by far my favorite thing about this harness! SO many harnesses I have tried fit everywhere else except the chest or too big around the arms etc....so I was happy to be able to adjust this one perfectly to Koda.
