Riding in Cars with Dogs
Dog safety during vehicle transportation is an important topic. Unfortunately, no extra precautions are taken place and many accidents occur, which leads the dog and potentially dog parent(s) to get severely injured or killed.
Why do we have to wait until a horrible accident takes place in order to start using a dog restraining device? The Center for Pet Safety is actively raising awareness on this matter and it has even created its own set of standards for dog restraining devices to follow.

Over 15 companies in the past have created dog restraining systems in the form of car seats, harnesses & attachments in order to keep your dog safe during vehicle transportation. How many of them have actually passed a crash test? Surprisingly only 4 of them! 2 harnesses & 2 carriers.

Shocking right? The crash test follows the Federal Motor Safety Standard, identical to that of the child restraints, so you may wonder how did the failed dog restraining systems react to a crash?
When the Center for Pet Safety conducted a study in 2013 and tested a number of harnesses, this is what the failed tests looked like https://www.centerforpetsafety.org/test-results/harnesses/2013-harness-crash-test-videos/
According to the American Automobile Association, over 30,000 accidents are caused annually by an unrestrained dog in the front seat. Unrestrained dogs distract the driver and in the case where a sudden break or an accident takes place, the dog will be a projectile.
The founder of Petsavvi, John Christopher Maamary, decided to take matters into his own hands and so he founded Petsavvi Inc.
Petsavvi caters to active dog owners who care about their pet’s safety during vehicle transportation. The company has developed a multifunctional dog safety harness, which is the Otto Dog Harness, that was carefully engineered to secure your dog(s) in the vehicle, and not only that but to comfortably walk your dog(s). This dog harness is highly engineered to be the solution to dog’s safety during transportation. Petsavvi has mindfully designed it to include all the features a dog parent would need in a harness.
Check out all its features here: https://www.petsavvi.com/ Petsavvi will officially launch the Otto Dog Harness on November 24th in the Canadian Pet Expo, Canada’s largest indoor pet festival, which annually takes place in the International Centre, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
