Hi all,

We have a new fluffball (Labradoodle) coming in a few weeks. I was wondering if anyone knows of a doggy seatbelt that fits the Model 3? (Posted here as I presume the seatbelts are the same across the range)

I have looked at ones on Amazon and the buckle shape is rectangular.

In the Tesla there is a split in that rectangle.

Is anyone using a doggy seatbelt they can recommend? Or do they reckon the above example will fit?

Cheers

We've used this one in the past:


A nice thing about it is that (not sure if this is obvious in the picture), its belt is made of two straps, so you can pull your existing car seat belt through that and connect it to the socket. As in, you don't have to rely on the product's connector fitting correctly. Does that make sense?

Mind you, it fitted just fine in a Zoe.

Cheers for that. Are you saying that the buckle clunk clicked fine into the Zoe seatbelt plug, so no need to use the existing seatbelt?

That would also be useful to know as we also have a Zoe which will be the main run around car for the dog. Will only in the M3 for the long distance journeys.

Yup, exactly. With the Zoe you definitely have both options - plug the harness directly into the socket, or thread it through the existing seat belt. Works great.

Oh, and you can use this just as a normal harness when you're out and about too which is handy.

I wish they would outlaw these Doggy seatbelts as they are nothing like the safety levels they say they provide.
Get a cage and put the cage in the boot with the back seats down. Your dog and your family will thank you should you ever end up in an accident.

There’s nothing wrong with the belts, it’s the harnesses you have to be careful with. The belts are usually shorter then the ones they show in the film clips, there’s no way the pup can fall off the seat. I’m sure cages can be just as damaging in a crash.

Cages are also shown but given the choice a cage is the only real option and the reason why you see professional dog handlers using them for transporting their animals after £xxx has been spent in training the animal they dont want a tiny bump to damage it and have to retire it early.
