Us pups love to go for car rides. I love lookin’ out the window and seein’ new sights and sniffin’ new smells. There’s all kinds of new and excitin’ things out there WOOF! My little sister, Little Bit, is a mix of stress, anxiety, and excitement all in one. She shakes on a good day, my Lady says it is a Chihuahua thing, but when she gets nervous she really shakes! But, that ain’t the worse part. She zips and zaps all over the car! My Lady has tried hooking her to the seat belt like us big dogs, but she screams bloody murder. Thankfully, my Lady got her a Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed the other day. She is right as rain ridin’ in there!
I’m guessin’ I would be comfortable too if’n I could bring my bed in the car. But, my Lady says it’s to big to haul around plus I stay in my seat belt and don’t dart all over the car like a pesky fly WOOF! Lemme fetch my Lady to tell ya ’bout this fun Sleepypod Little Bit likes so much!
Here’s what my Lady says about the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed
I am lucky in that all of my dogs love to ride the car. While my big dogs are happy to have their harness attached to the seat belts and behave nicely, my Little Bit is a handful to say the least! She loves to go, but anxiety and excitement makes it seem like she has consumed too much coffee. She is a Chihuahua and in true Chihuahua form she shivers and shakes. I cannot keep her in a harness and the seat belt and therefore, she ends up running all over the car.
Our last vet trip ended up with her jumping down by my feet, causing me to have to pull over and get her up before she caused a wreck. I had heard of the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed and was anxious to see if it would work so we were going to give it a whirl.
Sleepypod is three products in one: it’s an everyday pet bed, a stylish carrier, and a safe car seat! While many cats and dogs associate travel with negative experiences such as a trip to the vet or kennel, Sleepypod reduces stress by allowing a pet to travel safely in the comfort and familiarity of his or her own bed.
I love all the features of the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed! Actually, the whole concept made sense to me! Little Bit loves her Sleepypod as a bed at home and it makes perfect sense that it would help keep her calm her when traveling. Not only would she be less anxious, I could feel good that she would be safe and secure by using it as a car seat. Actually, after her last escapade, I believe we will all be more safe and secure!
Let me show you the features and how easy it is to use as a pet bed, a stylish pet carrier, and a car seat.
Sleepypod is Perfect as a Pet Bed!
As a pet bed, Sleepypod is perfect. The interior is SUPER SOFT and cushy. It is also great for over-night trips or traveling for a bed away from home.
You have to admit, there is nothing like sleeping in your own bed and I believe Little Bit agrees!
The Sleepypod is Easy to Clean
- Wipe exterior with damp cloth
- Vacuum pet fur from Ultra Plush bedding
- Separate Ultra Plush from foam padding, machine wash Ultra Plush in cold, gentle cycle then line dry
- Foam bedding is wrapped in a water repellent cover that can be cleaned with a damp cloth
It also includes a D-ring in the bottom of the bed for attaching a leash. This keeps your pet unexpectedly jumping out when you open the top. It’s a great safety feature when traveling!
Sleepypod is a Stylish Pet Carrier!
When ready to leave home for a trip to the vet or traveling, Sleepypod becomes a mobile pet carrier. Simply zip the dome onto the Sleepypod.
The mesh allows them to see out, while being safe and secure inside.
Little Bit loves her cozy Sleepypod! Little Bit has the Sleepypod “medium”, recommended for 15 lbs or less, and there is ample room for her to stretch out and have her favorite blankie or snuggle toy. The Sleepypod Mini is recommended for pets 7 lbs or less.
She loves being able to see out! I love that she enjoys it and it helps reduce her stress. The Sleepypod comes with a padded shoulder strap that makes it easy to carry. The Sleepypod also comes in fun stylish colors such as: Jet Black, Chocolate Brown, Strawberry Red, Robin Egg Blue, Blossom Pink, and (Artic White – Medium Only).
Sleepypod Becomes a Safe Car Seat!
PPRS Handilock Equipped
The Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed is PPRS Handilock equipped, which helps with car safety. This device helps lock the strap on top so that it doesn’t fly open in case of a crash.
Travel is Safe and Comfortable with a Sleepypod
Using the Sleepypod Mobile pet bed as a car seat makes traveling safer for our pets. Seat belts securely latch around the bed in velcro positioning points to hold it in place. Just remember to use in a seat without an air bag. In case of a crash, your pet is secure in their cozy safe spot.
Sleepypod has been Crash-Tested!
Check out the success of Sleepypod in this short crash test video! You can also find more information on the Sleepypod Safety Test Program. I believe you will be as impressed as I was! After seeing it in action, I feel good knowing that my 4-legged friend has the protection!
Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed features in a nutshell:
- Removable mesh dome reveals an everyday pet bed or pet bed away from home
- Seatbelt straps allow Sleepypod Mini to be safely secured in a car seat
- Secure and durable mesh dome
- Easy access from the dome top or when the dome is removed to reveal the bed
- Removable, Ultra Plush bedding is machine-washable
- Easy clean exterior is made of luggage-grade, ballistic nylon

The Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed has made our lives easier. From short trips to the vet to traveling, Little Bit can be on-the-go in style and comfort. Without all the anxiety of her past trips, she is much more comfortable. I am happy that she is comfy and safe. The Sleepypod would be a benefit for all small pets – both dogs and cats!

Little Bit already has their optional warmer pad for Winter and, of course, their air mesh bedding for Summer on her wish list! Hum! I guess we will be spoiling her further 🙂

I love that it becomes a safe car seat. If I won I'd donate this to one of my favorite local dog rescues (I have 3 rescue cats but not yet any dogs). Animals are one of the main charities to which I donate. That's why 10-20% of my sales from my Rodan+Fields skincare business go toward local animal rescue.

I really would like a Sleepypod because my cat Trinny figured out how to escape her carrier. She's able to push her head through the velcro even though I make it secure. She likes to look out the window when we're driving home. The Sleepypod looks secure and I wouldn't have to worry about her escaping!
