Subaru of America is partnering with Sleepypod, a pet product company known for its durability and crash-safe worthiness, for a line of pet accessories.
With 11 items equipped for Subaru vehicles, the pet accessories ensure that owners can take their furry companions (even cats!) on road trips and remain protected, per the automaker.
Sleepypod products meet high standards for safety to reduce pet exposure to possible hazards. The company’s 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.
The new line of co-branded pet accessories is available for purchase at Subaru Parts Online and at Subaru retailers nationwide.
Protecting pets is a key component of the “Subaru Loves Pets” commitment. The automaker features pets prominently in its creative (“The Barkleys” have a reoccurring role) and also works with pet rescue organizations. More than 20,000 shelter pets found homes during the 2020 Subaru Loves Pets Month.
That commitment to pets extends to protecting pets on the road, said Joe Daugherty, director – accessories, Subaru of America, Inc., in a release.
“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,” Daugherty says.
The line is made up of a 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, a rear seat cover, rear bumper protector mat and pet lover license plate frames.
