(WTVM) - The use of pet harnesses in vehicles is increasing. However, according to recent testing those products might not successfully protect pets in the event of a crash.
In recent crash tests using dummy dogs, testers found that even when pet owners use some of these products, dog fatalities are still a possibility.
A shocking study in 2011 uncovered a 100% failure rate of commercial dog car restraints.
Experts in the matter urge pet owners to educate themselves about the dog safety products currently available in the market.
