No in the car, she is such a layed back pup you would not believe! A great traveler, hope to make our trip to Florida in Feb.
We put the harness on, never thought about chewing.... it lasted a full 30 minutes. I have another brand ordered so this time we will be more attentive. I must say they work great when taking walks.
Honestly, if you can fit a crate in the car for her, I'd recommend it. Not because she's bad in the car, but for her own safety. Soooo many dogs are lost every year when people get in car accidents. If you get rear-ended or T-boned and your pup gets scared, she could fight or chew her way out of a harness before you know it.
A harness will not secure a dog if you get hit, if windows break, if first responders have to open the door to help you. The safest place in an automobile for a dog is in a good, sturdy plastic crate. Not wire, either - those can crush and the welds break and become knives. Something to think about, anyhow.
But again, no harness is chew proof. Darn it!
You ask of my companions. Hills, sir, and the sundown, and a dog as large as myself that my father bought me. They are better than human beings, because they know but do not tell. ~ Emily Dickinson
To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace. ~ Milan Kundera
