Subaru Wants to Keep Your Pet Safe With New Accessory Line
Car Pro | May 5, 2021
Subaru’s love of animals is well known with its long-running Subaru Loves Pets campaign. Now the automaker is taking things a step further with the launch of a new line of pet accessories. They’re designed to help keep your furry companion comfy and most importantly safe and protected while in the car. They’re not just for dogs, either, they are for cats and other furry companions, too.
"Protecting pets is a key component of our Subaru Loves Pets commitment, and that includes protecting pets on the road," said Joe Daugherty, Director – Accessories, Subaru of America, Inc. "At Subaru, we know that pets are part of the family, and as our owners head out for warmer weather adventures with furry friends in tow, we want to keep them safe and comfortable for the ride."
The line features 11 pet-friendly gear and accessories equipped for Subaru vehicles, accessories that were designed using state-of-the-art technology to maximize pet comfort. They include: Pet-Friendly Padded Cargo Liner, Console Lid Protector, Collapsible Pet Kennel, Pet-Friendly Padded Seat Protector, Pet Ramp, Sleepypod Pet Harness, Sleepypod Pet Carrier and Mobile Pet Bed, Sleepypod Pet Travel Bowl, Seat Cover - Rear, Rear Bumper Protector Mat, and Pet Lover License Plate Frames.
Subaru says Sleepypod products meet the highest standards for safety to reduce pet exposure to possible hazards. Sleepypod dog harnesses and pet carriers are put through stringent safety tests to include static material tensile testing and dynamic crash testing at the standard set for child safety restraints.
"Sleepypod carriers and car harnesses are packed with proprietary technology that is the result of an intensive engineering effort by Sleepypod's design team to help keep pets safer when traveling in cars," said Michael Leung, Sleepypod co-founder and lead product designer. "The launch by Subaru of a new pet accessories line is a tremendous demonstration of their dedication to the well-being of pets."
You can buy the accessories at Subaru Parts Online and at Subaru retailers nationwide.
