I have two issues with the seat, however. The first, as others have stated, is that the back will begin to curve down over the dog over time. This is incredibly annoying. We've gotten to the point where we have to tie the handle of the car seat to the headrest of the seat in front of it with the dog's leash. It's kind of ridiculous and also defeats the purpose of the encasing action that would happen in the event of a crash. I don't know how else to fix this issue, though. I feel like the back of the car seat could have some sort of flexible but firm mechanism that holds it up, but I'm no designer. It is frustrating.
The second problem connects with the first. I find the seat a bit annoying to put in and out of the car. I wouldn't even bother to remove it except that because the back folds over so drastically, there's no way I have found to keep the seat in the car during periods of non-use because by the time I am ready to use it again, it has become a burrito. It definitely prevents me from taking my dogs in the car more often, which is a bummer.
Overall, I think this is a good, important product that could be excellent with just a few minor tweaks.
There is a lovely story on the PupSaver website about the man who developed the PupSaver for the dog he loved (see the “About” tab). This is a family-owned business in Atlanta, GA with a deeply-felt passion to save the lives of our beloved dogs.
You can use the PupSaver25 in the car’s front or back seat. One of my dogs adjusted easily to the rear-facing design. For the other one, I brought the Pupsaver into the house first so he could get used to it. Then I put it in the car, gave him treats and time, and he adjusted.
The PupSaver website has a harness with a D-ring at the chest rather than at the back. It isn’t essential but the dogs are more comfortable with it. Don’t use a neck collar – it has to be a harness for safety.
Here are some tips for installing the PupSaver:
Once you pull the seatbelt out to its full length, attach the PupSaver clamp at the seatbelt’s retraction point so that the seatbelt stays loose and all the way out. Do NOT remove the clamp from the retraction point.
There is a youtube video for how to attach the J hooks to the child seat anchors.
Buckle the shoulder seatbelt diagonally across the back of the PupSaver seat with a loose tension. Use only two of the four buckles on the back of the PupSaver (labeled D, E, F and G in the instructions). Buckle the loose portion of the seatbelt DIAGONALLY, from the top down to the bottom, across the back of the PupSaver. Start with the buckle at the top (nearest the door) and cross diagonally down to the buckle at the bottom on the opposite corner. That is, if you are installing in the back seat behind the driver, buckle from F down to G. If you are installing in the front seat or behind the passenger’s seat, buckle from D down to E.
Some reviewers said the seatback folds over on the dog. That can happen if you incorrectly use the two top buckles (horizontally across the top, from D over to F) and let the seatbelt tighten over the back. Also, sometimes with the original fiber-filled PupSaver, a good re-shaping helps …take the seat cushion out and turn the PupSaver inside out…squeeze it together...then once you turn it back, the back of the Pupsaver should not fold over.
To adjust the seatbelt's shoulder belt tension, while you are holding on to the seatbelt, remove the clamp and adjust the tension so it is slack. Put the clamp back at the retraction point so the tension stays slack. I always leave the clamp in place.
