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.
