“Seat belt harnesses and car seats have become more popular,” said retailer Lisa Conrad, owner of Dogadillo Inc. in Austin, Texas.

“There’s also a really nice booster seat made by [Kyjen’s] Outward Hound for smaller dogs, so that they can see out the window [of the car] and still be safely strapped in,” she added.
