Sleepy Pod Air for Spring Break Air Travel

If you're contemplating traveling with your pet during Spring Break, you might want to know about Sleepypod.  They are a modern, innovative company with with carrier options that do triple duty.  I love their designs for their striking good looks and all the thoughtful details that go into them. 

The Sleepypod Air is unique in that it conforms to the size of the aircraft you are on.  It also serves as a "car seat," and a crate, perfect for hotel rooms and home. 

Our dog loved it immediately.  She was happy to go inside and make herself comfortable, knowing right away it was for her and getting very excited about it.

We haven't had a chance to take it on the plane yet, but it works great in the car and I think it would be nice for car travel and to help keep the dog at ease at various destinations.  It straps into the car via seat belt making it a safe way to transport your dog.  It's a wonderful crate for those who live in small spaces, you just fold it up and store it when not in use, taking it out for trips to the vet or the occasion when you need a crate (company coming, etc). 
 The Sleepypod Air is a high quality nylon, easy to clean and durable.  It has compartments for a collapsable bowl, food, leash, etc.  It has an optional opening on one side to slip over a wheelie suitcase for easy transport through the airport. 

The ends are compressible (from 22" down to 16"), allowing you to make the carrier smaller for tighter spaces and letting your friend stretch out when there's room.  Our dog is a small Chihuahua and needs very little space, so I found myself longing for a smaller version of this carrier, but I think people with larger dogs would appreciate this feature. The bottom is lined with plush faux fur which makes a nice travel bed, and there's even an optional warmer pad to keep your dog extra cozy in colder climes.

This is a multifunctional luxury carrier that comes in several lovely colors.  I prefer low profile black for travel because it makes it look smaller, matches my other stuff, and doesn't show scuffs.  Find it HERE.
