Review: The Sleepypod Air

We’re in love, and we want to shout it from the rooftops! It does exist… a pet carrier that can do it all, AND it’s so plush that Coco actually volunteers to lay in it. Volunteers. Hallelujah! What is this spectacular product called, you ask? It’s the Sleepypod Air, and it’s pretty much the most convenient and practical pet accessory ever.


The Sleepypod Air is airline approved! It can easily retract in size by folding the ends in, allowing your pet to have maximum space during the flight, while still being able to fit under airline seats during take offs and landings. Even better, you don’t have to lug your pet around on your shoulder while walking to your gate. Even though Coco is only 12lbs, she gets heaver after a few minutes walking. The carrier has convenient suitcase trolly pockets! Just unzip the pockets, stack and slide onto your suitcase handles, and start rolling. SO EASY.

Traveling by car? The straps on both sides allow you to safely and securely fasten the carrier in a car too! And how could we forget about treats? Large zipper pockets are great for easily accessible treat storage.


Not only is this roomy for your pooch, but it’s space efficient for you! Once unzipped, the sides collapse flat and flush, and can easily be store in tight spaces. How amazing is that?


The Sleepypod Air provieds maximum comfort for you and for pet, whether traveling or just on the go. The padded strap can be worn on your shoulder or can be adjusted for cross-body (which is my favorite). Coco found the plush bedding to be extra enjoyable. Most dogs, I’m sure, share similar taste in bedding; soft, cushiony, and plush. If your dog does too, then this bedding is a match made in heaven.

We also love the all around mesh zip that allows her to see out of both sides, as well as the top of the carrier. This way she doesn’t miss a beat, and we all know how nosy Coco is! Another practical feature that we love is that both mesh openings can be snapped into place, allowing your pooch to come and go as they please. This is great for when we are visiting relatives or friends, we can snap the mesh door so that it stays open, and Coco has a place to call her own when she gets bored.


We all know how dusty those little paws can get, and should we even talk about treat crumbs? The removable plush bedding makes cleaning a piece of cake! Their cozy spot can transform from dusty to clean in no time flat.

    OH my gosh! This is SOO cute! I want one like NOW! : )


  2. I think Mamma Biscuit needs this, although she is quite attached to her beach bag which we have been using for the past 4 1/2 years now!

    I thought Coco Bean would prefer strawberry red. My Little Carrie, a yorkie-apso, would go for Dark Chocolate even though it is bad for her.
