Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed Review (Sleepypod)

Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed
What It Is

The Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed is actually a Pet Bed, a Carrier and a car seat all-in-one that will help keep your small dog or cat calm when you have to transport them somewhere. Pet Parents know that traveling with pets can be distracting and dangerous. A sudden stop or swerve, or even a fender bender can hurt you dog or cat if they aren't properly secured. Also, pets that do not like the car or don't travel well can distract the driver which can also result in an accident.

If you have a nervous traveler or even if you don't, the Sleepypod makes traveling for your pet more comfortable and certainly safer. The lower portion of the pod can be used as a normal pet bed in your home. It has a ballistic nylon outer cover and a comfy plush inner liner covering a foam bedding insert that's removable and can be machine-washed. Simply zip on the domed cover and the bed magically transforms into a pet carrier complete with a padded shoulder strap. With the Sleepypod System, your prized pet gets to travel in the comfort of his own bed, which might reduce the anxiety caused by traveling.

The Domed top is covered mostly in a non abrasive mesh material so your pet can get a 360-degree view and it has a zippered opening so you can easily get to your pet if you need to. The Sleepy Pod is also equipped with PPRS or Pet Passenger Restraint System which allows it to be attached to your cars seat-belt in 2 places with a simple Velcro flap. The PPRS along with Sleepypod's Safety Test Program have been recognized by the Center for Pet Safety.

Why Is It Useful?

The Sleepypod is a plush, comfy bed in it's own right, but the fact that you can zip on the top and convert it into a safe pet carrier for the car makes it even more useful because it should reduce stress and anxiety that results from vet visits or car trips. The PPRS system allows you to safely strap your pet into place without worry that a sudden stop or swerve could send it flying about the interior of your car.

Who It’s For

The Sleepypod isn't cheap but can you put a price on your pets comfort and safety? Also, if you were going out to buy a good bed and a good carrier, the pricing wouldn't be that far off. A lot of times you get what you pay for. With the Sleepypod, you're getting a bed and carrier all-in-one with great safety design features. It's also constructed well and may very well be the last car carrier you buy, especially if it helps your nervous nellie of a pet.

What To Be Aware Of

The Sleepypod is definitely for small pets. The Sleepypod comes in two different sizes and seven different colors. You can also buy accessories, including a warmer pad for colder climates and an air-mesh hammock for warmer climates. The Sleepypod has passed a crash test performed by the Sleepypod Safety Test program. For more information about the program go to
