Reston, Virginia-based Center for Pet Safety collaborated with Subaru to test commercially available crates and carriers for vehicles that claimed to offer protection in vehicles and identified three top performers.
The top-rated crate was the Gunner Kennels G1 Intermediate with 8-inch tie down straps, and the top-performing carriers were PetEgo Forma Frame Jet Set Carrier with ISOFIX-Latch Connection and the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed with PPRS Handilock. Safety evaluations included analysis of crate connections as well as crash testing, according to a news release.

Not all pet carriers and crates advertised as being safe for use in vehicles perform well in crash tests, a study released Friday by a pet safety nonprofit has found. In the absence of performance standards and testing protocol for pet carriers and crates, the groups came up with their own formulas for testing. They used a child safety seat clause under Federal Motor Safety Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) to create a testing procedure for the carriers, while they used the European test standard ECE R-17 to evaluate the crates. The latter test is designed to evaluate the strength of seats, their anchorages and head restraints, as crates are considered cargo.“We are proud to help lead the charge in identifying the best crates and carriers for pet lovers everywhere, while, more importantly, making pet parents aware of the safety measures they can take and the dangers that can occur if they don’t,” Subaru spokesman Michael McHale said in the news release.The products were tested using crash-test technology that determined whether the carrier would contain the pet during the crash and aftermath, and ensure that your pup won’t become a projectile.
