The Center for Pet Safety® is the website where you can find straight answers about products

CPS is a non-profit research and consumer advocacy organization dedicated to companion animals and consumer safety. CPS studies pet products and establishes criteria and test protocols to measure whether pet safety products provide the protection claimed by advocates and intended by manufacturers.

  • For example, they even conduct rigorous crash testing on commonly available pet safety products using realistic, specially designed, crash test (non-living) dogs.
  • Although CPS does not directly impact legislation, their organization advocates for meaningful standards leading to safer products that protect animals and improve travel safety for everyone in a vehicle.
  • Read about which products have been crash test certified by CPS.
  • Read about things like pet travel tips and about air travel with pets.
