Crate Crash Tests

Most of most of us travel with our dogs – to shows or trials, to the vet, or just on errands.  We all know it’s very important to safely restrain your dog in the car.  Loose dogs can cause accidents, damage the car (I.e chew up your seats) when unattended, escape from the vehicle in an accident, and are at risk of escape or worse during traffic stops.

If you, like me, travel with your dogs, please review this crash test safety article.  It shows the results of crash tests on many popular crates and it is terrifying.  For example, I have been considering Variocages….well, no more.   New car crates will be ordered soon.
