Sleepypod's entire travel product lineup has received more top scores in our testing than any pet product brand on the market today. This is truly unprecedented.

The Center for Pet Safety, the 501(c)(3) research and consumer advocacy organization dedicated to consumer and companion animal safety, today awarded Sleepypod with a 5 Star Crash Test Rating for the Clickit Terrain.

In July 2014 Center for Pet Safety published their Crash Test Protocol and Rating Guideline to grade crash protection of pet travel harnesses. As the first scientific approach to pet product safety in the U.S. market, the Safety Harness Crash Test Protocol and Rating system provides essential guidelines for pet product manufacturers. The test protocol, which is a result of the 2013 Harness Crashworthiness Study conducted by Center for Pet Safety and sponsored by Subaru of America outlines a consistent test methodology and evaluation program to ensure pet travel carriers offer crash protection.

“Sleepypod’s commitment to safety has earned another 5 Star Crash Test Rating, this time for their new Clickit Terrain,” stated Lindsey Wolko, Center for Pet Safety founder. “Sleepypod’s entire travel product lineup has received more top scores in our testing than any pet product brand on the market today. This is truly unprecedented.”
