Tips for Pet Safety
Subaru of America Inc. and the nonprofit Center for Pet Safety announced results of a
study on car harnesses for dogs. Crash tests revealed serious flaws in many of the harnesses currently on the market. Subaru and CPS enlisted MGA Research Corp. to conduct crash testing of various car harnesses, using dog models. CPS designed the dog models, which represented a 25- pound terrier mix, a 45- pound Border Collie, and a 75- pound Golden Retriever. Sleepypod's Clickit Utility Harness was the only harness in the study that kept all three dog models from launching off the seat. Complete study results are available at centerforpetsafety.org.
