Find Out What It Really Means
When A Product Says It Is Crash Tested

Some manufacturers of pet travel products claim crash testing but don't hold up in real world situations. One company (I will not say which) claimed their dog car harnesses were crash tested. However, they refused to share their crash test results. An independent study later revealed that although the harnesses were crash tested, they failed most of the tests. But the product was crash tested so they didn't lie, right? Legally, this is true because as of the date this page was created (October 2015) there are no laws in the US that regulate pet travel product safety.

But don't despair! There are a lot of great products that do hold up to their claims. We're here to help educate you so that you can tell the difference between advertising hype and the real deal.
