In September 2016 Center for Pet Safety (CPS) published its Crash Test Protocol and Rating Guideline to grade crash protection of pet travel crates. CPS is leading the first scientific approach to pet product safety and the Pet Travel Crate Crash Test Protocol and Rating System provide essential guidelines for pet product manufacturers. The test protocol, which is a result of the 2015 Crate Crashworthiness Study conducted by Center for Pet Safety and sponsored by Subaru of America outlines a consistent test methodology and evaluation program to ensure pet travel crates offer crash protection.

“Gunner Kennel’s G1™ Medium with Strength-Rated Anchor Straps follows the earlier success of their Intermediate and Small sizes,” stated Lindsey Wolko, Center for Pet Safety founder. “Based on the impressive test results, there is a strong focus by this brand on the structural integrity of their crates. Gunner Kennels continues their reign as the top performing crate we have examined to date, receiving yet another 5 Star Crash Test Rating, this time for their Medium kennel.”

Center for Pet Safety encourages manufacturers interested in participating in this rigorous testing and performance program to contact Info@CenterForPetSafety.org or call 800.324.3659.
