Sleepypod's vision is to create innovative, well-designed, and functional products for pets that complement modern, on-the-go lifestyles.
The award winning Sleepypod carriers are more than a bed, it's a lifestyle. It's your pet's personal space, designed to fit his or her individual needs. The beauty of the Sleepypod luxury pet carriers is its versatility. A dog that needs to be aware of his surroundings at all times can be just as easily accommodated as the cat who likes her privacy. Sleepypod allows pets to travel safely in the pampered comfort of their own bed made of luxurious ultra-plush and foam alleviating the stress associated with travel and confinement in hard, plastic boxes with limited visibility.
Sleepypods product has won countless industry awards including LIFE + DOG Best in Show (2011), Susie HomemakerTM Seal of Approval for Quality and Excellence (2011), Doggie Aficionado Reader ‚ÄúBest of‚Ä? (2010), Bark Buckle Up Pet Safe Choice (2009), Cat Fancy Editors' Choice Award (2007, 2011), Pet Product News Editors' Choice Award (2007), Modern Dog Staff Pick Award (Spring 2011), Cat Fancy Editors' Choice (2010), Dog Fancy Editors' Choice Award (2010, 2011), and the Pet Business Industry Recognition Award (2010).

Dog anxiety is a surprisingly common problem and includes issues like fear of thunder, fireworks, separation, travel, crating, problem barking and much more. Today medication is the most common approach used to treat anxiety; unfortunately, drugs are expensive, time consuming, risk negative side effects, and often result in very limited improvement. But there is another solution that is highly effective for most dogs. With its patent-pending design, Thundershirt's gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs if they are anxious, fearful or over-excited. Based on surveys completed by over two thousand customers, over 80% of dogs show significant improvement in symptoms when using Thundershirt. Thundershirt is already helping tens of thousands of dogs around the world, and is recommended by thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers.
As for why Thundershirt's gentle pressure works to calm a dog, experts such as Dr. Temple Grandin believe that pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system. Using pressure to relieve anxiety has been a common practice for years.
Thundershirt is also a very useful tool for managing excitability or hyperactivity with strangers, on the leash, or in a training environment. Thundershirt's calming effect helps a dog to focus (or refocus) her energies in a more constructive direction, allowing training to be more effective.
The history of Thundershirt is truly a story of a common problem in need of a simple solution.
