What You Should Know About Pet Restraints and Safety

Subaru and the Center for Pet Safety (CPS) recently teamed up to conduct rigorous crash testing on commonly available pet safety harnesses using realistic, specially designed crash test dogs. The crash tests uncovered serious flaws in many of the popular pet restraints currently on the market, with many resulting in catastrophic failure.

Subaru and the Center for Pet Safety (CPS) recently teamed up to conduct rigorous crash testing on commonly available pet safety harnesses using realistic, specially designed crash test dogs. The crash tests uncovered serious flaws in many of the popular pet restraints currently on the market, with many resulting in catastrophic failure. The performance data will assist in the development of the first harness safety standard and test protocols that will serve as guidelines to the pet products industry. "Safety for all passengers, including our pets, is very important to Subaru and to our drivers. Selecting the wrong harness could be just as detrimental as not using one at all," said Michael McHale, Director of Communications at Subaru of America, Inc. Sleepypod's Clickit Utility Harness has been identified as the 2013 Top Performing Harness. CPS is a non-profit research and advocacy organization dedicated to companion animal and consumer safety.
