ZuGoPet’s innovative design for small dogs converts from a travel harness to a wearable pack and unlike anything we have seen before in pet travel.

The Center for Pet Safety, the 501(c)(3) research and consumer advocacy organization dedicated to consumer and companion animal safety, today awarded The Rocketeer Pack by ZuGoPet a 5 Star Crash Test Rating.

In July 2014 Center for Pet Safety(CPS) published Crash Test Protocols and Rating Guidelines to grade crash protection of pet travel harnesses. CPS is leading the first scientific approach to pet product safety and the Crash Test Protocols and Rating Systems provide essential guidelines for pet product manufacturers. The test protocol, which is a result of the 2013 Harness Crashworthiness Study conducted by Center for Pet Safety and sponsored by Subaru of America outlines a consistent test methodology and evaluation program to ensure pet travel harnesses offer crash protection.

“ZuGoPet’s innovative design for small dogs converts from a travel harness to a wearable pack and unlike anything we have seen before in pet travel. “ stated Lindsey Wolko, Center for Pet Safety founder. “This product is the first pet product designed by Carolyn Shewfelt in partnership with Juls Bindi of ZuGoPet, a motivated young brand that has achieved performance levels most larger brands have been unable to attain.“
