Clickit Terrain is a New Car Safety Harness for Dogs


March 17, 2017

Sleepypod, a Pasadena, California-based company known for redefining pet products, today unveiled Clickit Terrain car safety harness for dogs. In crash tests, Clickit Terrain delivers higher performance results than any of its top performing Sleepypod car safety harness predecessors. It reduces the forces on the highly vulnerable chest area by 10 percent. Watch Clickit Terrain crash test video footage here.

Clickit Terrain was crash tested at the standard for child safety restraints. Chest force data was obtained using Sleepypod’s proprietary crash test dog, DUKE 2.0 (pictured here). Load sensors in the crash test dog’s chest measured the forces when moving forward in a collision. Data collected from these tests revealed a 10 percent reduction in forces. More information on DUKE 2.0 here.

Sleepypod’s Clickit harnesses have led their category in safety. The Clickit Utility model earned Top Performer honors in a 2013 collaborative Harness Crashworthiness Study by the Center for Pet Safety and Subaru of America. The Clickit Sport harness earned the highest possible five star safety rating in the Center for Pet Safety’s Certification Program in 2014.

“Clickit Terrain offers unparalleled protection for dogs who travel in cars,” said Michael Leung, Sleepypod co-founder and lead product designer. “In order to reduce accident injuries, there needs to be measurable data to assist in creating a safer product design. Clickit Terrain excels in its ability to absorb kinetic energy while keeping the pet from accelerating forward and leaving the seat.”

Clickit Terrain is light and easy to use without sacrificing safety. New shock absorbing sleeves work with a broad padded vest and patented Infinity Loop design for more safety in the car. The same patent pending shock absorbing sleeves make Clickit Terrain comfortable for use as an everyday walking harness and also provide better control for the handler. Reflective patches on the harness shoulders can be interchanged with service patches for working dogs. Clickit Terrain can be used with an optional Terrain Pack.

Working dogs and active dogs will benefit from the Clickit Terrain design. It combines award-winning travel safety technology with enhanced safety, comfort and control features for sustained daily use.
