Since Kurgo was founded, we’ve focused on developing gear that makes traveling with pets safer. We recognize the despite the best preventive measures, unfortunate events still happen. Just like a child car seat, if your dog car harness is in an accident, you should replace it to ensure your pet's safety in the case of another incident. So, in 2017, we launched our Safe Again program with the goal of offering safe and reliable harness replacement – at no cost.
The promise is simple. No matter what brand of harness the dog is wearing in the event of an accident, Kurgo will replace that harness free of charge with one of our crash-tested harnesses.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
It’s easy. First, reach out to our Customer Care team to start the process. Once you reached out, we’ll ask you to fill out a Harness Accident Claim Form providing contact details and information about your car accident. After the details have been submitted to our team, we’ll send you a replacement harness within 15 business days.
What information is required for the claim form?
To process the claim, we require you to upload a copy of the accident report from your police department as well as a photo of the harness that was in the accident.
Is this program restricted to the US and Canada?
At this time, we can ship to the US and Canada only. If you would like a replacement harness, you will need to have it shipped to an address in one of those two countries.
Does the harness involved in the accident need to be a Kurgo harness?
No, we will replace any brand of harness with one of our crash tested Kurgo harnesses.
What harness will it be replaced with?
We will replace your harness with your choice of either our Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Dog Car Harness, or the Impact Dog Car Harness. The Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Dog Car Harness is crash tested for dogs up to 75 lbs, and the Impact Dog Car Harness is crash tested for dogs up to 108 lbs.
How do I size my dog appropriately for a Kurgo harness?
Please be sure to consult the sizing chart and then measure your dog to get the best fit. Sizing between different brands of dog harnesses is not the same, so if you have another brand of harness that you are replacing, please be sure to measure your dog to determine their size. Please feel free to contact our Customer Care Team for help in fitting your dog. If, after you receive your replacement harness, you need to exchange it for a different size, shipping both to and from Kurgo will be at your expense.
For the Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Dog Car Harness
We recommend using a fabric tape measure and taking your dog’s chest and neck measurements to get the best fit. You can also watch this video here:

How long after the claim process will it take to receive my replacement harness?
