3 Pet Travel Products Earn CPS Certification

 3 Pet Travel Products Earn CPS Certification

Three new pet travel safety products have earned five-star certification from the Center for Pet Safety: Gunner Kennels' G1 Small crate, the Sleepypod Clickit Terrain harness and ZuGoPet's Rocketeer Pack pet-safety seat. A pet-safety and research nonprofit, CPS awards ratings of five stars, four stars or not recommended. CPS tests pet products using the federal standards for assessing child-safety seats.

Gunner Kennels G1 Small Crate

Used with strength-rated cargo straps, the Gunner G1 Small crate earned five-star ratings in CPS' crate and carrier categories. Designed for dogs 30 pounds or lighter, the heavy-duty crate features a new window design for better ventilation, elevated feet for stabilization, an escape-proof door that locks, safety latches, stainless-steel tie-down pins and a lifetime warranty. Gunner's G1 Intermediate crate for dogs up to 75 pounds earned CPS certification in 2014. The G1 Small, available for preorder, costs $349.99, and the G1 Intermediate costs $499.99; find them at Gunner Kennels.

Sleepypod Clickit Terrain Harness

With the Clickit Terrain, Sleepypod says it's improved on the design of its first two travel dog harnesses, both of which earned praise from CPS. The Clickit Utility was the top-performing harness in CPS' initial study of canine car harnesses. The Clickit Sport was the first harness to earn CPS five-star certification.

Sleepypod says the Terrain reduces force on a dog's chest by 10 percent, adding shock-absorbing sleeves to the broad, padded chest. Designed to restrain dogs from 18 to 90 pounds, pricing ranges from $89.99 to $99.99 depending on size. It can be preordered for shipping in October at Like the Utility (no longer available) and Sport models, the Terrain doubles as a walking harness.

ZuGoPet's Rocketeer Pack

ZuGoPet's Rocketeer Pack is a canine car seat that doubles as a backpack. Designed for dogs and cats (yes, you read that correctly) 25 pounds or lighter, the Rocketeer also received a five-star rating from CPS. Although it resembles a harness and CPS classifies it as such, it does act as a car seat, as the pet's bottom is elevated off the backseat of the vehicle. The Rocketeer Pack is available for preorder at ZuGoPet for $150.
