Are Car Dog Seat Harnesses Safe?

Friday, April 11, 2014

The Center For Pet Safety along with Subaru of America has been conducting tests on the safety of dog seat harnesses.  They tested seven popular dog harnesses using a specially designed weighted test dog. Simulating a collision at 60 mph, it found that only two brands provided adequate protection. Many of the harnesses resulted in catastrophic failure.   So should you use a dog seat harness?  Even though much improvement is needed to ensure that these products provide adequate protection for our pets, The Center for Pet Safety says that you should still use one. Remember, the pet harness is better than no protection at all.

Remember, your pets count!
