Roadie by Ruff Rider

ROADIE® CANINE VEHICLE RESTRAINT

Dog Car Harness / Seat Belt

Design protected by U.S. Patent Numbers 5,794,571, 6,450,130 and 7,311,063. Roadie is NOT a converted leash, it was developed to provide a safe and secure way for your dog to travel in a vehicle with you.

AAA Pet Safety Travel Alert

Roadie features & benefits compared to others:



  • Safety – any stress is placed on the chest instead of the neck of your dog
  • Comfort – the tether/leash is adjustable and allows for movement
  • Strength – webbing exceeds S.A.E. standards for human seatbelts
  • Convenience – easy to use, can be left on all day in and out of the car
  • Vet Approved – designed with input from a veterinary orthopedic surgeon and design engineer


Researched and independently tested, Ruff Rider’s Roadie Canine Vehicle Restraint keeps the dog you love safe and secure while riding, braking or turning and afford the best protection in extreme situations.

It easily attaches to any vehicles seatbelt system and the tether acts as a short walking leash for “pit-stops” and all around use. When not in the car the tether/leash can be rolled up and secured with the hook & loop closure.

Roadie is not designed to fit skin-tight like other harnesses – see the “two finger rule” below – the looser fit assures your dog stays comfortable and secure.


Product Details
Two secure positions to attach your dog on the seat:
1) sit/stand/lie down
-- or --
2) sit/lie down
Strong structural stitching, using 70 denier heavy duty nylon
thread with box “X” stitching
The securing strap is also used as a leash. Roadie provides a hook & loop closure to keep the leash /
securing strap out of the way when not in use

NOTE: Chest adjustment strap shown above is used only on sizes MED, LG and XLG.
The Roadie by Ruff Rider is the strongest most convenient safety system on the market. It is independently tested to human seatbelt standards.





The securing tether is also a walking leash.
