Tagalong On-Seat Pet Booster Car Seat

I've been looking at car seats for Daisy and Beau with the following considerations:

1. Big enough for them to comfortably lay down and sleep
2. High enough sides that they wouldn't "slip out" in a sudden stop
3. Secure seat belt system
4. High enough for them to see out
5. Wouldn't "break the bank"
6. Two seats need to fit in our Prius and also in the bucket seats in the back of our Yukon

Most of the ones I liked were made of foam, but the inner area wasn't all that large because of the thickness of the foam walls. I need TWO - so two of the largest wouldn't fit in my Prius. Many were very expensive....cheaper ones didn't look as secure.

While searching the internet, I found a new car-seat that became available in late April: http://www.solvitproducts.com/on_seat_booster_main.htm

It has a heavy duty, rigid frame that snaps together and a cover that zips and velcros on plus a pillow cushion. There is a "D" ring fastened to the frame and has a safety leash that slips through the cover that you can attach to a harness. The car's seat belt goes through the frame to fasten the seat to the car...kind of like a baby's car seat. I'll try to attach some pics (if I have them re-sized correctly)!

Can of Campbell's soup is to provide size scale. The bottom pic shows the opening to place the seat belt thru...

$64.99 each on Amazon (free freight.....)

Daisy and Beau both like the car seats. They've been climbing into them to snooze! Daisy weighs 11.2 lbs and Beau is 13.8 lbs so you can see how they fit. Don't mind my messy dogs! They are due for a bath!

Thats really nice!

They are making alot of dual duty carrier/seat things I noticed when I was bag shopping (I have a bit of a thing with dog carriers, I, ehh, collect them..yeah, that's it....collect them, lol) I think this is pretty cool, I just bought it a few weeks ago but haven't tried it out in the car yet::

But what I like is that it is higher and harder to jump out of, because Gucci will move heaven and earth to get to my lap in the car.

I left Oliver and Comet's in the house for awhile so they would get used to being in them before I used the seats in the car. It worked beautifully--they hope right into their car seats now

Sally,((Oliver)) Comet and Pennie too!

That looks like a really well made seat. I had the one made of foam(but gave it to my DD), and after a while it starts to lose it's shape. Shelby likes to just lay on the back seat anyway, so she is harnessed in. I just bought a console seat for Kodi. He likes to sit in my lap, or be next to me. I tested it out and he jumped in it and laid down. Sunday I'm going to put it in the car and take him for a ride. keeping my fingers crossed.

I love it. I have the foam kind and none of the dogs particularly want to be in it. They usually jump out and lie on the seat. Let us know how it works out.

I like how you could even just put a pad down in it, and make it a little bigger and cooler! It would be easy to clean, too! Thanks for posting it.
