Well, first, there is the dog’s comfort and compliance. Second, there is the matter that the “dog” in the video... isn’t. And doesn’t has a neck. An animal with a neck is going to have the same spinal deformation on impact as with any other harness. Yes, the harness may keep the animal in place. (Which is the main thing CFPS is concerned with as far as I can see) But I find it hard to believe the dog would survive a seerious crash.
IMO, any restraint is better than nothing. Any (strapped down) crate is better than any harness. After that, buy the best crate system you can afford that will work with your vehicle. But a soft-sided crate securely strapped into the backseat seatbelt is an economical and safe option for many people.
