Dog Seat Belts

I've got a convertible so when winter is over with I'd like to let Banjo really experience the wind in his ears effect. Naturally I don't think this is a wise idea without restraints for him.

Anyone know if there are a variety of dog seat belts and if one type is better then the other? And any chance someone has comparison shopped in the various pet stores to know who carries the better deals?

And since I'm'll find this humorous. I went to the dog park yesterday and my whopping 12 pound 5 month old decided a 150 pound great dane would be his buddy for the day. It was absolutely hysterical watching him chase the dog around. Puppy preschool is going well. Last night in the heat of playtime he actually did drop a roll of toilet paper he stole when I shouted the drop it command. I gave him a treat for dropping when told but it felt weird like I was rewarding the bad behavior of stealing toilet paper. Right now our issue is that he knows sit, stay and lay down merit treats so whenever we eat he'll start doing all the tricks he knows in hopes of scoring people food. Our instructor has suggested putting him on a leash a few feet from the dinner table when we eat so we'll see how that goes. I have to admit to bad owner behavior for letting him stand right under the table.

Edit - if anyone was following this for advice for their dogs...I scoped a pet boutique, PetSmart, Petco and Petland. For harnesses Petland was the cheapest (but small selection). Petco and PetSmart were about equal in price and selection. The harness is worn like a normal one and simply clicks in to the seatbelt. All carried harnesses but ony the boutique and PetSmart carried car seats. I ended up with this one from PetSmart and it works just fine. On the box it shows two color options but sadly PetSmart only offers it in gray (black interior in my car) so don't bother driving to multiple PetSmarts in your area.

    In case anyone still checks this community, I thought I'd post this. My Lainie died yesterday. She had turned 11 years old not long ago. I took her…
