Sleepypod Launches European Expansion in Response to Consumer Demand for Pet Safety Restraints for Cars

Published : Thursday, October 11, 2018 | 2:07 PM

Sleepypod®, a Pasadena-based company known for redefining pet products, today launches in Europe its innovative pet products lines designed for safer travel. The expansion comes as a direct response to an increase in consumer demand.

“With an expanded footprint in Europe, Sleepypod is better able to accommodate the growing demand for its crash-tested safety harnesses and pet carriers,” says Sleepypod co-founder Michael Leung. “There has been a surge in requests for these Sleepypod lines of products that are proven to be effective in restraining a pet, particularly in the United Kingdom where car drivers are required by law to restrain their pets.”

In the United Kingdom, rule 57 of the Highway Code stipulates, “When in a vehicle make sure dogs or other animals are suitably restrained so they cannot distract you while you are driving or injure you, or themselves, if you stop quickly. A seat belt harness, pet carrier, dog cage or dog guard are ways of restraining animals in cars.”

Sleepypod is the first pet products manufacturer to crash-test its entire family of pet safety restraints for cars at U.S., Canadian, and European child safety seat standards. The company also collects voluntary data from its customers who have survived accidents while using Sleepypod pet safety restraints. This data is analyzed for future product development.

“Sleepypod’s safety record does not end in the crash lab,” Leung adds. “Real life accounts from customers who have survived accidents offer tremendous testimony to the effectiveness of Sleepypod’s pet safety restraints.

“Without data, safety is just a guess,” Leung continues. “When given a choice, European consumers also want what works when it matters the most.”

Sleepypod carriers and safety harnesses include Pet Passenger Restraint System (PPRS) components designed by Sleepypod to secure a pet in a vehicle and restrict harmful movement during a sudden vehicle stop or frontal collision. Watch the crash tests on Sleepypod’s video channel at
