Study: The best car crates and carriers for your pet

- A new kind of crash test sponsored by Subaru involving "dummy dogs" revealed which crates and carriers are the safest on the market.

"Pet owners don't realize that most of the products on the market come from highly unregulated industry, and they don't even have to be tested. So, that's one of the reasons we're vetting those claims," says Lindsey Wolko, founder and CEO of the Center for Pet Safety.

She tells FOX 2 the two carriers that performed the best were the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed with PPRS Handilock, and the Pet Ego Forma Frame Jet Set with ISOFIX-Latch Connection.

She says the test revealed that the best performing crate for larger dogs is the Gunner Kennel G! Intermediate with 8' Tie Down Straps.
