Share Article

Data from Sleepypod research supports this pet owner’s primer on driving safely with dogs.

Guidance is based on six years of pet safety restraints research.

Sleepypod® today presents a Pet Driver’s Education infographic on how to determine the effectiveness of dog safety harnesses. Guidance is based on six years of pet safety restraints research as part of the company’s Safety Test Program. Sleepypod created the Sleepypod Safety Test Program to determine safety data for pet products.

Extensive research included crash testing of various and varied pet restraint designs as well as static tensile testing of critical safety components. To better understand the effects of a car crash on a pet, weighted crash test dogs were designed, produced, and implemented by Sleepypod for the purpose of research of the crashworthiness of pet safety restraints.

The Pet Driver’s Education infographic helps the reader to understand:

  •     Why is it important to use a pet safety restraint?
  •     Why is crash testing an important consideration in determining the effectiveness of a pet safety restraint?
  •     Why are the tested weight and speed of testing important factors?
  •     How your pet is restrained determines the reaction in a crash.
  •     What is static tensile testing and why is it important?

The infographic is free for editorial use by bloggers and media outlets and is available at this link .
