Sleepypod has crash tested its new Clickit Terrain car safety harness for dogs according to US and Canadian safety standards for child restraint systems, with several small differences between to the two standards, including belt and bench positioning.

“Sleepypod is the first pet product manufacturer to test its pet seat belts to US and Canadian safety standards for child restraint systems with successful results,” said Michael Leung, co-founder and head product designer, Sleepypod.

“In each test, the Clickit Terrain safety harness kept the crash test dog from accelerating forward and leaving the test bench while controlling rotation.”

Sleepypod tested the Clickit Terrain safety harness using Duke 2.0, Sleepypod’s proprietary crash test dog, which weighs 75 lb.
