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