Any updated harness testing? The seatbelt through the harness types don't work, my dog ends up lashed to the seat, almost getting strangled by the seatbelt.
Good afternoon,
I just viewed your crash testing videos. Very upsetting and I realize my Louise should not be sitting up front, in her bed with an attachment to the seatbelt. I was going to get the Kurgo Sky Bed and I’m thinking that’s not the one for her now.
Could you possibly PM me?
I have a 70lb standard poodle/English Springer Spaniel fur baby & need to buy him a harness for the car. Would you please recommend a certified product for him? Thank you so much
What is your comments on 4pets Caree Cage for travel and the crash test certification on it from TUV Sud?
They specifically say that its tested for the passenger compartment safety crash test, but what does that mean in detail? Ive been googling to find out, but cant find anything. Do you know?
What does the center say about this design: "crash-tested in a DOT-approved facility according to industry standards. Standards set forth in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS-213) and/or Transport Canada SOR (CMVSS213), Child Restraint Systems."My dog got herself right out of the SleepyPods harness. I don't know what to do now. :(
Hi, I think it’s great that you’re helping people with keeping their pets safe 🙂. I just watched your programme about car dog harnesses which was really shocking! My dog has a normal harness which she wears all the time when we’re out and about which I then clip into just a short ‘seat belt’ which plugs into the normal seat belt socket.

Have you tested any like this? I don’t want to keep changing her harness etc so this is much easier than using one of the harnesses you recommend on your website but now I’m worried it’s not safe- especially is its v cheap!! Any advice would be great, thanks :)
I noticed the last time your approved harnesses were tested was around 2014/2015. Am I to assume the rating stays the same years later?
What is the best way to secure two mini schnauzers in the back seat? Using a restraint on each harness won’t work because the restraints are long enough to get tangled and choke them to death.
This is cute and important info at the same time! Every Fire Department should have one.

Hayden was an athletic dog who loved to play catch and retrieve. During one play session, the ball became lodged in his throat and his owner Mary was unable to pull the ball out. Sadly, Hayden was gone, despite efforts to revive him at an emergency clinic.

On the one-year anniversary of his passing, Mary and Center for Pet Safety would like to share Hayden's story and again alert pet owners about the dangers of a ball getting lodged in a dog's throat.

Maggie, The Inspiration Behind Center for Pet Safety

I thought I bought a reliable safety harness for my dog Maggie. I was driving Virginia I-66 during the morning rush hour. A car cut in front of me and I had to slam on the brakes. Maggie was screaming in pain. I discovered the harness tether had wrapped around her back legs and she was thrown and hit the back of the front seat. She was hurting and scared and I couldn’t get to her fast enough.

That safety harness did nothing to protect Maggie.

After Maggie recovered from her injuries, I set out to find a product that would work better for us. To my dismay, I found out that there were no safety standards or required testing for pet products. I also discovered that the Consumer Products Safety Commission does not consider pet products “consumer products” and they turned a blind eye to the marketing claims and pet product safety.

If no one was monitoring product quality, how could I trust what I was buying would protect her?
