Dr Roger Mugford and his team have launched a new range of car safety harnesses under the CarSafe brand designed to keep dogs safe and secure while providing the qualities of a walking harness for ease and convenience.
The experts behind Company of Animals’ Halti brand commissioned the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute in the US to undertake crash testing and have now launched a self-certified range to help everyone to abide by the law and avoid fines of up to £5,000 or $5,500.
The team at Company of Animals invite you to share this video to help spread awareness far and wide on the importance of securing our dogs when we travel by car.
The harnesses are certified up to 32kgs/70lbs and directly link to the car seat belt system with no extra connection clip required. The high-tech, fully reflective fabric features a breathable layer on the chest panel for comfort, stability, and walking safety. Two years in development, this innovative new harness is specially engineered for easy fitting and conversion into a walking harness for the perfect day trip.
Roger said: “The delight of dog ownership is to take them with you on all your adventures and enjoy that ever-faithful presence by your side and while we all remember to strap our children in when we take a car journey, the same cannot be said for all our pets.
“We decided to create a product that would allow you to go straight from the car to your walk without any fuss and keep your dog secure. Many do not realise that, in most countries, it’s the law to have your dog safely secured in the car and so we’re here to offer peace of mind. After all, we love our dogs.”
