Company of Animals launches the latest in crash tested innovation with the new CarSafe brand

New car safety range is designed to keep our canines safe and secure while providing all the best qualities of a walking harness for ease and convenience

Roger Mugford and the team are excited to announce the launch of the new car safety range of harnesses designed to keep our canines safe and secure while providing all the best qualities of a walking harness for ease and convenience.

The experts behind the Halti brand commissioned the prestigious University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (USA) to undertake meticulous crash testing and have now launched a self-certified range of products to help everyone abide by the law and avoid fines of up to £5,000 or $5,500.

The team at Company of Animals invite you to share this video to help spread awareness far and wide on the importance of securing our dogs when we travel by car. Car safe is designed to offer dog owners a convenient way to secure their pet and ensure everyone is protected.

The Crash Tested Harness is for dog owners looking for extra peace of mind. Certified up to 32kgs or 70lbs, it directly links to the car seat belt system with no extra connection clip required. The high tech fully reflective fabric features a breathable layer on the chest panel for comfort, stability and walking safety. Two years in development, this innovative new harness is specially engineered for easy fitting and conversion into a comfortable walking harness for the perfect day trip!

The Dog Travel Harness is for dog owners that want to travel safely together and within the law. With a padded chest piece for stability and comfort, this car safety harness doubles up as a handy walking harness on arrival!

“Unsecured dogs in cars” is a global issue:

  • UK: 69 percent dog owners not aware of law
  • USA: 84 percent of drivers do not secure their dog in car
  • Germany: Up to 52 percent of drivers do not secure their dog in car
  • Netherlands: 51 percent of drivers had an emergency due to their dog
  • Australia: 5,000 dogs a year injured by leaping from vehicles

“The delight of dog ownership is to take them with you on all your adventures and enjoy that ever-faithful presence by your side and while we all remember to strap our children in when we take a car journey, the same cannot be said for all our pets. We decided to create a product that would allow you to go straight from the car to your walk without any fuss and keep your dog secure. Many do not realise that, in most countries, it’s the law to have your dog safely secured in the car and so we’re here to offer peace of mind. After all, we love our dogs!” says Roger.

For over 40 years Company of Animals has been dedicated to giving dogs the best possible quality of life so that they, and their owners, can enjoy life together to the fullest!
