Sleepypod Mini

Stress-free Travel
The same beautiful design of the Sleepypod mobile pet bed, miniaturized. Secure kittens, puppies, or toy breeds in the versatile three in one mobile pet bed small enough to fit under an airline seat.

Many cats and dogs associate travel with negative experiences such as a trip to the vet or kennel. The Sleepypod mobile pet bed allows a pet to travel safely in the comfort of its own bed, thereby reducing travel-related stress because the Sleepypod is already a trusted part of its everyday life. Just zip on the lid and you’re both ready to travel.

Certified by the Center for Pet Safety for pets 7 pounds and under. Sizing and preferences vary by pet, just like humans. Check Sleepypod’s sizing guide for more information.

Sleepypod Mini’s round shape and cozy bedding provides the ultimate safe space for your small pet. 

Use it as a pet bed at home, then zip on the lid to transform the bed into a carrier or crash tested car seat. Buckle in Sleepypod mobile pet bed using hook and loop positioning points that secure the seat belt around the carrier. PPRS Handilock on top hook and loop strap ensures latch is secure. 

Solid base provides stability while the mesh lid provides 360 degree visibility and airflow. 

Zipper down the center of the lid provides a secondary entry and exit point for your pet. Great for pets that need a little more time to acclimate to carrier use. 

Small enough to fit under most airline seats.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Sleepypod Mini suitable for airline travel?
Some airlines may allow Sleepypod Mini. Since each airline and airplane is a little different, Sleepypod always recommends contacting the airline prior to travel, just to make sure all pet restrictions and requirements are met. 


Can Sleepypod Mini be used in the front seat?
Sleepypod recommends buckling your pet into the rear seat, just like you would a child under 95 pounds, to better ensure safety. 


Can more than one pet use the carrier at a time?
Pets can share the carrier at home, but Sleepypod cannot recommend more than one pet per carrier during travel due to the number of variables involved. Please note that it might reduce safety. 


When do I use the safety tether?
Sleepypod recommends using the safety tether only during public transit to keep your pet from escaping the carrier. The safety tether feature should not be used for car travel. Watch the Pet Travel Experts “How to Use a Safety Tether with a Pet Carrier” video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04hSN8GOkQ4


Is it necessary to replace your pet’s safety restraint after a car accident?
Just like a human seatbelt in a car accident, the material will stretch. Just a little bit of extra slack can reduce its effectiveness. Watch this Pet Travel Experts video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tS0LRNWwcc


Will Sleepypod replace my pet’s safety restraint after a car accident?
Yes, view the details of Sleepypod’s Crash Replacement Program at https://sleepypod.com/accident-replacement-program
