Default Finally got our Sleepypod Atom

I have been hanging to get a safer carrier for the dogs in the car after seeing the Centre for Pet Safety crash tests late last year. Funds have been tight and after much saving of coffee money, the carrier arrived today. 😊

I chose the Atom because it's 5-star rated while the Air is only 4-star and there are no pets allowed in aeroplane cabins in Australia anyway. I thought it would work better than the round version because it would be easier to carry into the Vet or Training Class etc.

So far I'm really happy with it but I'll spend some time getting them happy in it before I try it in the car. Has anyone else got a Sleepypod? How has it held up over time?

Looks really comfy in there! I have ferret carriers. They fit the chi's and they love them. They are in a space between the TV and the bookcase, and they find them 'out of the way' to take naps. I am pretty sure Zarita sleeps the night away in one of them.

Looks cute. I bought the Pup Saver for safety since it passed the tests in the front seat, but it doesn't work as a bed or carrier. Things that have multipurpose are such a good value.

I have my eye on that exact one! My pup would not stay in the Pup Saver, and I want a nice all-purpose carrier too.

Yes, they all were happy to try it out but they are well accustomed to crates/bags/carriers. The ferret carriers are great, you're right that they are such a good size. I love that Zarita likes one so much that she chooses to sleep there overnight. Chad sleeps in a dog bed but the rest prefer our bed.

The Pup Saver looks good and it's great that it can be used in the front seat. It's not available in Australia (along with a whole lot of other useful things!) so I was glad to see the Sleepypod was available. Yes, I'm hoping that we'll get lots of use out of it generally which will make me feel better about spending the $$.

You'll love it, the colour is really pretty. I will say that it's quite small. Satine is a bit bigger and longer than the boys and I think that she would probably be more comfortable in the Air or Original.

I took her to class in it tonight and one of my clients was shocked when she came out of the carrier as he said he'd thought it was just my bag. Lol. It was easy to secure in the car and comfortable to carry from the car, so far I'm really pleased with it.

Sounds great! My boy is a long and leggy 4 pounds. How big are yours?
