Dogs are preschuzz….just like your human babes, but furrier!

So you want to make sure they are safely secured to their seats when you need to go on a drive, right?

Enter the newly formed Center of Dog Safety!

Using a test dog dummy (no live dogs participated) that weighed 55lbs (the average U.S. dog size), the Center tested four constraints that are deemed acceptable for child safety in a simulated 30 mph crash.

All four tests….failed….and failed miserably.

Whether the harnesses were too tight, too slack, and not strong, all four of them would have at least severely injured a live dog, if not worse.

Currently, states are contemplating whether or not to provide legislation on dog restraints while some states already have caged or tethering laws.

Check out the video (above) to learn more about the safety measures needed to help our dogs.
