Sleepypod Pet Carriers Earn Top Honors from Center for Pet Safety


July 22, 2016

Sleepypod, a Pasadena-based company known for redefining pet products, announced that the Center for Pet Safety awarded top honors to every Sleepypod pet carrier in the research and advocacy organization’s new carrier certification program.

Five Star Crash Test Ratings were awarded to the Sleepypod with PPRS Handilock, the Sleepypod Mini with PPRS Handilock, and the Sleepypod Atom. The Sleepypod Air pet carrier earned a Four Star Crash Test Rating.

“Sleepypod carriers have transformed how pet owners travel with their pets,” said Michael Leung, lead product designer and Sleepypod co-founder. “As more pet owners take their pets with them on vacation, errands and to work, Sleepypod carriers offer ease of use, maximum comfort and proven safety when traveling in cars.”

The Center for Pet Safety’s Certification Program is the first formal crash test rating system for carriers and other pet safety restraint products. Manufacturer participation in the program is voluntary for the purpose of obtaining independent evaluation. The test protocol, which is a result of the 2015 Carrier Crashworthiness Study conducted by the Center for Pet Safety and sponsored by Subaru of America, outlines a consistent test methodology and evaluation program to ensure pet carriers offer crash protection.
