Paddleboard-loving dog and owner become MIMsafe’s most recent ambassadors

We’re delighted that Kelly and her working cocker spaniel Murphy, from Nottinghamshire, have recently become MIMsafe ambassadors.
We asked Kelly a bit more about how she first heard about our crash tested crates and why she wanted to be a MIMsafe ambassador.

MIMsafe ambassadorQ: How do you feel about becoming a MIMsafe ambassador?
A: We’re really excited to be working with MIMsafe. After personally using our crate for the past few years now it’s a product I truly would now never want to be without. It’s given me peace of mind wherever we travel, not to mention a clean, dog hair free car!! Definitely one of the best purchases I’ve ever invested in as a pet owner.

Q: Have you always had dogs?
A: I haven’t! I always wanted a dog growing up though! Murphy is my first dog.

Q: Do you do any dog sports/other activities with Murphy?
A: I recently purchased a Stand Up Paddle board which I love taking to the lakes with Murphy on board! He took to it like an absolute natural!

Q: What made you want to become a MIMsafe ambassador?
A: I did a lot of research into trying to find a crash proof crate that would fit my old Renault Clio, I was under the impression that such a product didn’t exist for a hatchback car until I came across MIMsafe. Travelling Murphy safely in the car has always been something that’s been really important to me, especially with how much we travel! Unfortunately I think sometimes it’s something that a lot of pet owners overlook or don’t think about. Many are probably like me and believe because they have a small car, a product that would fit doesn’t exist and so I wanted to become an ambassador to help spread the word about the options available and the importance of road safety.

Q: What do you like about MIMsafe crates?
A: As well as the obvious safety features and peace of mind it gives me whilst travelling I love that the crates are adjustable in depth. This has meant that when I did upgrade my car a few months ago I didn’t need to purchase a whole new crate to fit it!

Q: Were there any specific safety-related incidents that prompted you to buy a Variocage?
A: Thankfully I haven’t had any first-hand experiences but I have seen/heard about many incidents where dogs have been killed in collisions. On the flipside I have also read stories where crates have saved a dog’s life, it was seeing these kinds of stories that influenced my decision and for me made having a crash tested crate a priority.
