At Doggies and Stuff, we make sure our fur babies are strapped in when we have to take a ride in the car. We use some Kurgo products for that purpose.
Gordie Spater, president of Kurgo®, the leading manufacturer of pet travel and safety products, is pleased to announce successfully completed crash testing of the Kurgo Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Smart Harness with steel Nesting Buckles.
“Our Enhanced Strength harnesses are engineered to safely restrain dogs in moving vehicles,” said Spater. “This keeps driver distraction to a minimum with dogs properly restrained in the event of a quick turn or accident.”
To determine the effectiveness of canine automotive restraints, the Kurgo® Enhanced Strength Tru-Fit Smart Harness with steel Nesting Buckles was tested at an accredited University test facility. There is no industry or government standard for testing the safety of pet restraints in vehicles, so Kurgo looked to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard for child restraint systems (FMVSS 213) and concluded that Kurgo would also use 30 miles per hour as their testing standard. A harnessed crash-test dog was used to mimic a real 35-pound dog traveling at 30 mph. Upon impact, the harnessed crash-test dog remained strapped in the harness while the unrestrained crash-test dog launched into the front of the vehicle.

“The crash test results provide comfort to concerned pet owners out there who aren’t sure of the benefit in buckling up pets on the road,” said Spater.
Using design, construction and testing to provide the best protection while riding, turning and stopping in extreme situations, the harness’ all-steel Nesting Buckle system is based on the time-tested harnesses of rock climbers and linemen. The harness is easy to use, it simply slips over the dog’s head and clips around the midsection. Five adjustments provide a nearly custom fit and a chest pad ensures control and security in the vehicle. The harness can be used with any seat belt.
