“On August 14, 2016, while returning home from a dog agility competition, I was involved in a vehicle roll-over accident. My dog, a 43 lb. Australian Shepherd, was in a Ruff Land Intermediate size kennel. The kennel was attached to a plywood frame I had installed in the vehicle, which was anchored to the vehicle body. I had used the Ruff Land tie down kit and bolted the kennel to the plywood. Both the dog and I were helped out of the vehicle with basically no injuries. I took the dog to the vet for a checkup and the only comment the vet had was, ‘He’s a little sore in the lower back’. Obviously, he was tossed around in the kennel during the incident. All the side airbags deployed, but the fact that he could walk away from the accident is testimony to the kennel behaving exactly as advertised. When I retrieved the kennel from the wrecked vehicle the only mark I found was a blood smear from me as I was extracted from the back of the vehicle.
Thanks for developing this product; it undoubtedly saved my dog from serious injury and probably death.”
