For the longest time its been painful to get the right type of dog carrier for car trips, and not only one that is safe in the vehicle, but one that isn't cumbersome, tricky or hurts your pup with too many bells and whistles pocking out here there and everywhere… well, we have been introduced to one of the most fabulous items in animal transportation. It ticks all the special boxes, safety, ease of use, fashion (tick tick) and of course something your dog or cat would love!
The Sleepypod range is superbly manufactured and so easy to use. No cumbersome attachments to make getting your animal into the car even more troublesome. just simple and safe click locks that work with your cars safety restraints easily.
Great for anyone with achy joints, painful fingers, now you will want to take your pup or puss in the car everywhere you go!
They will love it too - from the fleecy "VIP" style interior to the well thought out ventilation and see through bits, its comfy as - at least our little one thinks so!
The scary thing is that a lot of pet travel harnesses failed tests when over 45km's in the car - so its good to know that these won't fail… we asked Australian Sleepypod spokesperson Dianne De Barbera said that keeping pets safe during travel and at home is Sleepypod’s number one priority.
“The intent of the crash-tests was to confirm the effectiveness of the Sleepypod pet carriers at keeping a pet safe while travelling in the car,” Mrs De Barbera said.
“Using a weighted crash-test dog called Max Sleepypod conducted four car crash tests; transporting Max unrestrained, with a generic pet-safety harness, in a plastic pet carrier and with Max within the Sleepypod range of pet carriers – Sleepypod Air, Sleepypod Atom and Sleepypod.
With its superior safety features all three Sleepypod products reigned supreme by passing all of the car-crash tests when all of the other pet car-restraints failed.
Sleepypod pet-carriers are made from ballistic grade nylon and pet safe mesh and all three versions have seatbelt straps on two sides to allow it to be safely secured to a car seat."
