Sleepypod Air

Pet Product Review – Sleepypod Air

Today I was not sent a sample I was sent a press release announcing the newest product specifically designed for in cabin pet travel on aircraft. Again, I wish I had a sample so I can give you my opinion, but I did want to bring it to your attention. Below please find product information from their press release:

Sleepypod’s Newest Evolution in Pet Carriers Redefines In-cabin Pet Travel

Los Angeles, Calif.—September 20, 2009—Sleepypod, maker of the eponymous, multiple award-winning mobile pet bed, announces it will

introduce Sleepypod Air, its newest evolution in pet carriers, at the H.H. Backer 43rd Annual Christmas Trade Show & Educational

Conference in Chicago, Ill. on October 2-4.

“This is not just the newest evolution in Sleepypod’s line of pet carriers,” says Michael Leung, one of Sleepypod’s three co-owners and

product designers. Sleepypod Air is a revolutionary carrier that redefines in-cabin pet travel. Airline regulations regarding pets in the airline

cabin are not created equal. Each airline has its own rules, to include its own restrictions on the maximum pet carrier size.

“Sleepypod Air solves this size restriction dilemma. It has the ability to contract in size to fit in the space below a range of airline seats during

the restricted times of takeoff and landing,” explains Leung. “Once the captain announces you are free to recline your seat, simply slide

Sleepypod Air from under the seat and expand the carrier so your pet is allowed the largest space possible space while the plane is in the air.”

Sleepypod Air’s folding base allows it to be compressed from a length of 22 inches to 19 inches in length when one side is folded or 16 inches

in length when both sides are folded. Instructional diagrams on how to compress and expand Sleepypod Air can be found at:
