Even if you can’t always travel in first class, why not transport your furry friend in luxury? The cutting edge design of this portable living space allows critters to curl up in scrumptious pleasure with its ultra-plush interior and curved shape. After all, plastic carriers are so last year.

Hitting the road? Just wrap the seat belt around the pod and slip the shoulder strap through the top handle to ensure safety and security on the road. And the mini version for teeny tinys even fits under the seat on a plane. And if it starts looking less-than-brand-new, just wipe it down with a wet cloth, throw it in the wash, or even replace the interior plush with a new insert.

To make it even more snuggly, go for the optional Sleepypod Warming Pad. This low wattage warmer fits into the Sleepypod to keep your pooch toasty. Plug it into an outlet at home or use it with a car adapter on road trips.

The sleepypod’s so comfy cozy your dog may use it as his permanent nap-time nest at home — either as is or with the top zipped off, which turns it into a standard pet bed. Note that you’ll need to help him with that zipper part.
