Question Car Seats

There have been previous threads about this subject, but as I've been shopping online I've seen a lot of new models out there. I'm thinking about buying Odie a car seat for Christmas. What car seat do you have for your chi and what do you like or not like about it?

I have 3 different carseats, the snoozer, k&h booster car seat and LA rider by animals matter. The LA rider is my absolute favorite, it's the softest and I love the securing mechanism into the seat but its also the most expensive. There is an indention around the bottom that the seatbelt grips into and then also clips the secure around the seatbelt towards the top.
My second favorite is the k&h, which can be found for like $80 on amazon. The way it secures to the seat it really great too and there is an optional heating pad for purchase that plugs into ur car charger port! This seat has two slits on the bottom cut horizontally that the seat belts loops through and then the pad sits on top of it. There is a video on gw little, it's just super expensive on there.
My least fav is my snoozer bc they way it secures to the seat, it's not very sturdy, I think if someone hit me, the seat would go flying for sure.
Here are some pics for reference.

K&h



The only pic I have of the snoozer, not sure if u can tell by the pic, but it has two cut outs on the corners that the seat belts buckles over, that's the only thing that keeps it secure.


This ended up way too long, lol. Hope it helps!

Thanks for the replies. Oooooh I'm really loving that k&h one! What makes it your second fave and not your first? I've heard that the snoozer one has a heavy clip, which wouldn't be good for a smaller chi. What do you guys think?

Well I ended up with 3 bc the snoozer was my first and it was in my budget at the time (I was a student), then I saw the la rider and fell in love (once I was working), so I had to have it. Then Leo came along and I didn't feel the snoozer was safe enough, also didn't want to splurge again plus I was afraid of mojo and Lola not being very welcoming at first, so he needed his own. And of course gw little sent an email
Advertising the k&h, after watching the video and finding it for half the price (they wanted $25 for shipping) i was sold!! That's how I ended up w 3, lol.

The k&h is great, and it's the one I use the most when I drive my car bc I have a smaller sports car. However the la rider is so so soft, fits all 3 comfortably, the pups can all sleep in it (u wont have this problem with just 1). I think animals matter just increased their prices too, I paid $140 for mine and they are like $200 now.
I think if u got the k&h, u would love it! Especially for the price and quality. I kinda wish it didn't have that opening in the front but I don't think the dogsnotice it!

We have the snoozer outlook and I love it. The pups really like it too. Nice and roomy, and they love the Sherpa covering.
