There is almost nothing that screams the holidays more to me than family road trips. Ever since I was a little kid my family would load into the mini van and drive from Florida or Virginia all the way to Missouri at either Thanksgiving or Christmas time almost every year.

And we almost always had at least one pet with us. Although, a few times we had at least one dog and two cats along for the holiday road trip. They would ride in the back with us kids and all the presents, either sitting on a seat or in between me and my sister’s two bucket seats.

Growing up I didn’t think too much about what would happen if we got into an accident. I didn’t think about my safety or the safety of my pets. I was just blissfully happy at playing the license plate game or annoying my little sister as much as I could.

It wasn’t until I adopted my own dog that the safety of pets while riding in cars even occurred to me. It didn’t take long until I was searching for different ways to keep Luna safe while we were on the go. One brand I stumbled across was Sleepypod and we’ve been using their car harnesses ever since. Sleepypod has also graciously agreed to sponsor Day 8 of Stocking Stuffer Giveaways. (Did you miss Day 7? Find it here!)

Sleepypod is a boutique pet company that specializes in harnesses and carriers that will keep pets of all sizes safe while traveling in the car. Each product is designed to keep Sleepypod #1 in Pet Safety, but while also looking sleek and stylish.

Currently Sleepypod has two different car harnesses available – the Clickit Sport and Clickit Utility. You can see our comparison of the two different harnesses in a post here. In the end, I liked the Clickit Sport a bit more for the ease of use and we’ve been using ours with Luna for over a year now.

It is about time that Ralph got a harness of his own. We picked out the Orange Dream Clickit Sport in size Small for Ralph and it fits him like a glove. Just look how suave he looks in that orange!

The Clickit Sport also comes in Jet Black, Robin Egg Blue, and Strawberry Red and is available in four sizes from Small to Extra Large to accommodate dogs of all sizes. However, if your dog is much smaller than 20 lbs you might want to consider one of Sleepypod’s carriers instead.

You secure your dog in the car with the Clickit Sport by passing your existing car seat belt through the the two straps on the sides of the harness. It’s pretty easy and quick to set up and release, so you’ll be on your way in no time.

Because the Clickit Sport does utilize your car’s seat belt, it does limit your dogs range of motion. They can sit, stand, and lay down as normal, but will only be able to move a bit in each direction. This is good if your dog tends to wander around the car or pace from anxiety. However, it will not allow them to circle before laying down.

The limit of movement is a bit of a trade off on keeping your pet safe in case of an accident. To some that may seem less than ideal, but keep in mind a seat belt is how you keep yourself safe in the car too!

The harness will prevent your dog from getting loose in the event of an accident since they are tethered to the seat, but it will also help protect them from any impact. It’s even been crash tested with specially designed crash test dogs – Max and Duke.

Sleepypod’s Clickit Sport harnesses are one of my favorite products to feature on my blog and give readers a chance to win, so I’m very thankful to Sleepypod for agreeing to sponsor the Stocking Stuffer Giveaways for the second year in a row! I love featuring these harnesses because I truly believe in them.

The Clickit Sport harness is a quality made product, crash tested, and designed to keep your pets safe while they are traveling with you in the car. These harnesses are also a pretty hefty investment starting at $69.99. An investment that I think is definitely worth making, but also one that I understand may require a little saving up to make happen. So that’s why I’m thrilled to announce that we are giving away not one, not two, but THREE Clickit Sport harnesses this year!

Sleepypod also offers a few other products outside their car travel carriers and harnesses. One of our favorites is the Yummy Bowls – you can see our review here.

Yummy Bowls are a compact 3 in 1 bowl system that is perfect for travel. The base is a spill resistant water bowl that you can even freeze for hot summer days. A food bowl slips in to seal the water bowl and make it leak-free and then an extra bowl acts as the lid and makes everything completely spill-proof.

These bowls though designed with a purpose in mind are still very good looking. They come in two different sizes – small (6″) and medium (7.5″) plus five different fun colors – Blueberry, Key Lime, Mango Tango, Sea Breeze, and Very Berry. I have to admit that I’m guilty of having 3 of these beautiful and practical Yummy Bowls and we bring them along on all our road trips no matter how long they may be.
