Safety Matters

Sleepypod understands how important your pets are to you and that’s why safety is our top priority. From the BPA-free silicone Yummy Travel Bowls to the 100 percent organic Little Germs line of cleansers, we devote careful and caring attention to every detail in each product.

The Pet Passenger Restraint System (PPRS) is a safety system designed by Sleepypod to secure a pet in a vehicle and restrict harmful movement resulting from a sudden vehicle stop or frontal collision. Every Sleepypod carrier and harness includes PPRS components and features to improve pet passenger safety.

We Created the Sleepypod Safety Test Program to Improve Pet Passenger Safety

The Sleepypod Safety Test Program requires each Sleepypod product meet the highest standards for safety in order to reduce pet exposure to possible hazards.

To protect the joy of driving with pets, we put Sleepypod dog harnesses and pet carriers through stringent safety tests to include static material tensile testing and dynamic crash testing at the standard set for child safety restraints.

All tests are performed at accredited testing and research locations.

Sleepypod’s Safety Record is No Accident

Sleepypod has recorded multiple auto accidents without injuries to pets using one of its carriers or safety harnesses. All accident information was voluntarily shared with Sleepypod by its customers.

Crash Test Dogs

We created our own crash test dogs for the purpose of researching and developing pet product designs to ensure that they meet Sleepypod’s high standards for safety.

MAX is the first Sleepypod crash test dog. Small in size for the purpose of testing pet carriers as pet safety restraints, MAX 1 weighs 12 pounds and MAX 2 weighs 6 pounds.

DUKE resembles a medium-sized German shepherd. DUKE weighs 75-pounds and is also centrally weighted for more accurate testing.

Both crash test dogs are centrally weighted for more accurate testing.

Sleepypod Crash Replacement Program

To extend pet safety after an auto accident, Sleepypod has initiated the Sleepypod Crash Replacement Program.

Sleepypod will replace or provide a replacement discount on any pet carrier or safety harness damaged in an auto accident, regardless of the brand.
