Going on trips with your dog is exciting. Don’t overlook your dog’s safety in the car. No matter how safely you drive, accidents can happen and be prepared.
3 Do’s Buckling Up Your Dog!
1. Use a Crash Tested Carrier or Harness
An unrestrained pet can cause a distraction and interfere with your driving. If a crash should occur, an unrestrained dog can be quickly thrown from the car. An unrestrained 60-pound dog traveling at 35 miles per hour can turn into a 2,700 pound projectile in an accident.
Sleepypod offers Pet Carriers and Safety Harness:
The Mobile Pet Bed is three products in one: everyday pet bed, a stylish carrier, and a safe car seat. Your dog or cat will be cruis’in safe and in comfort. The vet approved Mobile Pet Bed was the first of many crash-tested safety products designed by Sleepypod.
The Sleepypod Atom Carrier is a modern car pet carrier. With a strap on both sides, the crash-tested Sleepypod Atom can be transformed into a safety car seat.
Sleepypod offers two Clickit safety dog harnesses, Utility and Sport:
SUGAR uses Clickit Sport Harness. Sleepypod Clickit Sport is the first dog harness in the industry to be certified by the Independent Pet Safety Research Institution, the Center For Pet Safety and received a five-star rating.

2. Off Your Lap
Keep your dog off your lap and from sitting in the front seat. During an unexpected accident, your dog can be injured or even killed if the airbag deploys. Be sure to place and restrain your pet in the backseat. The safest spot for your dog to buckle up is the middle of the back seat.
3. Keep the Windows Up
Make sure the back seat windows are up. If you have a vehicle with power window, set it to lock. Your dog’s paw can accidentally open the window down. It’s cute but not safe to let your dog stick his/her head out in the breeze. It’s very dangerous especially for overexcited dogs, that are known to jump out of moving vehicles. One main reason to properly restrain your dog in the car, buckle up!
