The pet car seat belt works great. There is enough room for my 25 lb dog to move. She is not able to reach over the consul into the front nor jump out of the car. She has learned to wait for me to unbuckle her. The buckle snaps to her collar - there is no need for a separate harness.
This carrier is very good looking with lots of mesh for an open feel for the pet. The concept is really well thought out. But.... the first time I took my 5 lb chihuahua in the car in the carrier, he pushed against the mesh and it separated from the zipper. Had I not been right there he would have pushed the rest of the way through and freed himself from the carrier. I'm glad I was not in an airplane when it happened. I really liked the carrier and it's too bad this happened, I returned it for a refund.
We liked this carrier because it had all the screens so she could see out and the zipper end where she could stick her head out or we could give her treats. I have an 11 lb Jack Russell and she fit perfectly I have no idea how an 22 lb dog would fit in this carrier.
