1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Choke Free Harness Pattern on: July 29, 2011 07:57:36 PM
I am trying to come up with a choke free harness pattern and am not having much luck.  I can't figure out how to put the hardware on to where it will not be rough or cause a cumbersome thickness between the shoulderblades of the puppy.  I am not very good with patterns if anyone has had any luck with something like this please let me know.

If you can make a cut out pattern from the diagram shown you can also use puppy pads they are in expensive and are for the this purpose and tape them on.  Even if you make a pattern from cloth you will still need to place a something inside to helps with the gathering of the urine.

I have checked into the commercial carseats you have posted along with several others.  I have not seen anything that mentions they have been crash tested.

I did make a carseat for my dog that has a fear of riding.  It worked like a charm. I used a tote and got one that would be large enough for him to lay down in if he wanted too.  Tall enough that he could be enclosed without without being able to flip out.  I lined the tote with a quilted padding to make it nice and soft on the inside and around the top edges.  Then I took a piece of fabric and made a covering that would hold the the batting in place and make the outside look nice.  I also made a to slots in the tote and the fabric to allow for the seatbelt to fit through and connect in the car. The bottom I bought a nice fluffy pillow to make it nice and soft.  I also bought a netgear seatbelt harness that goes around the seatbelt and then attaches to the dogs harnness to hold him in place.

He now loves to ride.  We no longer need to use the carset only strap him in with the seatbelt harness and his harness.  Works like a charm.
