No brand can claim such an achievement for giant breed dogs

"Center for Pet Safety has set the standard for crash-testing safety harnesses for pets for over nine years," said Lindsey Wolko, founder of Center for Pet Safety. "Sleepypod consistently meets our rigorous performance standards in small, medium, large and extra-large-sized harnesses. Now, Sleepypod's impressive research and development efforts have achieved a certified harness in the 110 lb. range. No brand can claim such an achievement for giant breed dogs and we congratulate them on their continued dedication to the safety of travelers and their pets."

CPS Certification is the first formal crash testing and rating system for dog travel harnesses. Manufacturer participation in the program is voluntary. Ratings consist of Five Star, Four Star, and not recommended ratings. View the CPS crash test of the XL size Clickit Terrain harness at https://vimeo.com/479526705

Testing and evaluation methods by CPS to determine harness safety included measurement of canine excursion, hardware/webbing migration, and hardware/stitching integrity. The test protocol, which is a result of the 2013 Harness Crashworthiness Study conducted by Center for Pet Safety, outlines a consistent test methodology and evaluation program to ensure pet safety harness restraints offer crash protection. It is the first scientific approach to pet product safety in the U.S. market.
