Zip from place to place with Fido
It’s nice to be one of those lucky dog owners. The kind whose pup loves nothing more than to get in the car and go. But let’s be sensible, not every traveler is perfect and some can be pretty finicky. When it comes down to it, our sensible side also knows it’s best to keep Fido restrained while driving – for his safety and the safety of others.
Inspired by a dog run, the Auto Zip Line™ allows back and forth plus sit and stand movement, but also provides security for those unexpected driving moments we’d rather not think about. A smooth running machine, this harness, leash and zip-line system make it super easy to get on the road with your pup. The leash easily connects and disconnects from the zip line when getting in or out of the car…which means instant transition from vehicle restraint to walking lead (yeah, we think of everything).
The Auto Zip Line is endlessly versatile and can be used between any two fixed points in a vehicle. Here is a happy and safe solution for everyone who agrees it’s more fun to make the trip together.

Bought this product with high hopes and they were fulfilled. I bought two since we have two vehicles and didn't want to have to switch back and forth. Dog doesn't mind it, he can move around as needed and in case of an accident he will be protected and won't be able to run off.

Ultimately this was what I wanted, but only part of what I needed. I assumed this product included the harness, but it did not. This product includes only the leash and line; you need to buy the harness separately. I just wish I had known that so I didn't have to pay shipping costs twice.
Apart from that, this is a very good product and I believe my dog is now safe in the car. I can tell he's much more comfortable in the car now too - before his "seatbelt", he never used to lay down in the car and was always on edge. Now he falls asleep on the backseat so quickly!

On a 3 day drive, it was so much more comfortable for me, my passenger AND the dog, allowing him to just get his 'front half' onto the armrest. AND safe because quick stops doesn't result in a 'flying dog' doing damage to himself!

I too love this product! it has been a perfect harness for my two dogs. They have reign to roam freely but are safe while doing it! The product is high quality and looks great; I will say its a bit tricky to get on but thats only because of its high quality buckles. My only complaint is that i have two dogs and it looks like they don't offer the leash zip line individually...you have to buy the combo. Another reviewer had the same comment so it sounds like there might be several of us in a similar situation (two dogs and needing just the leash/teather, not the leash/zip line combo). Kurgo, can you help us out??

The very first time we used the zip line our 33 lb spangle crewed thru the zip line. He's not a chewer, but he made short order of the fabric. Some companies, i.e. "Lupnie" guarantee their leashs against this!

This zip line has been the answer to my prayers! I have a service dog that has to go with me everywhere. After doing my research for sometime and coming up empty handed and very frustrated, I finally found Kurgo!! What an amazing product the zipline is, along with the Tru-Fit Harness and also the seatbelt loop! These products are all made fantastically well and give me such peace of mind when traveling around with my Truman. He is big guy and he has never once complained about wearing this product from the moment I put it on him. He is finally secure and safe! So Truman and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

My one and only issue with the zip line is that according to the instructions, the seat belts are supposed to lock in place to keep the zip line taut. My seat belts apparently don't stay locked which causes the zip line to be loose. So, instead I've attached the line to the overhead handles above each back seat door. This will make life so much more fun for my dog! Now she can go where I go and we'll both be safer.

The product is very well made and we use it all the time. Our biggest issue is that the hooks don't fit well into the seat belt clips, so once they are in there, we just keep them there because it's too difficult to get them in and out. Other than that, our boys love have the freedom to move around and we love that they are safe.

I have been using the Kurgo car harness and zip line for 4 years now. I have two Golden Retrievers that are on the go and I never let them in the car without their harness. Just recently I was rear-ended in my GP, I had one dog in the back seat on harness, my cat in a carrier in the front passenger seat (with the seat belt through the handle). The cat slid to the bottom of her carrie as the seat belt only up ended her carrier. Kirby was asleep lying with her head on the arm rest between the seats, she slightly lurched forward that was all. My GP took to impact but the harness and zip line saved Kirby from flying into the front. I have been telling everyone to restrain their dogs and push Kurgo. You have a wonderful product, it allows the dogs to move around, lie down or sit but they won't be come projectiles in the car. It is also great because I don't have to worry about them loose in the car, they won't jump out it they see something intriguing. Thank you for making a great safety product for my dogs. Kirby say "woof, woof" too!

I bought this last month because my boy kept on jumping to the front seat to sit in my lap (my bad for creating this bad habit). But also on some drives, I would stop abruptly and hear a "kaboom" in the back where he would fall from the chair or even the lookout seat.
The Auto zip line and leash zip line combo solved everything! Now he can still freely venture on the chair or lay in the lookout without getting tangled and me having the peace of mind that he is safe.
Although I would like to say that I am very disappointed the leash zip is unavailable for purchase as a stand alone as I have another dog that I would like to anchor to the zip line as well. I have sent a couple of emails, but to date no response.
