Sleepypod Air giveaway: Show us your dog’s favorite toy!

Last Thursday I reviewed the Sleepypod Air pet carrier, and today I have the pleasure of offering an Air carrier to a Dog Jaunt reader! Many thanks to Sleepypod for making this giveaway possible.

In my review, I called the Air carrier “outstanding” and “revolutionary” (I had some complaints too, but they were pretty minor). The carrier breaks new ground by giving you the option of shortening it from its normal length to either 19 inches or (with both ends folded up) 16 inches — allowing you to meet even the most stringent of airline maximums. Once the plane is in the air and you’ve pulled the carrier out from under the seat in front of you, the ends drop down again and your pet has an unusually large space to sleep in. No other carrier I’ve seen offers that kind of flexibility. And the “outstanding” part? The carrier is very well-made and well-designed. Check out my review for the features I particularly liked.

How to Enter

This giveaway is being co-hosted by Dog Jaunt and by my blogger friend Edie Jarolim of Will My Dog Hate Me. Feel free to enter from either site! We will give away a Sleepypod Air pet carrier to one lucky reader. The winner will choose their favorite color.

To enter, send us a photo of your dog’s favorite toy or blankie — the one that you’d tuck into your dog’s carrier as you set off on a trip, because you know he loves it best. It can be filthy! It can be tattered! Chloe’s squeaky sheep would turn your stomach, but it’s her lovey and it keeps her company on every trip. If your picture includes both your dog’s favorite comfort toy and your dog, we’ll love it even more!

Using the form below, please send us a link to your photo. If your link is over 100 characters long, please shorten it with ( ) or tinyURL ( ) before pasting it in. In the link title, please include your dog’s name (and if your dog’s toy is too mangled to recognize, a description of what the toy is!). Be sure to fill in your e-mail address so we can contact you if you win. Your e-mail address isn’t shared with anyone, and we will not send you e-mail unless you win.

Alternatively, send us an e-mail and attach your photo to it! My e-mail address is [email protected] and Edie’s e-mail address is [email protected]. Please put “Sleepypod Air giveaway” in the subject line, and let us know your e-mail address so we can contact you if you win.


Please post your photo before 11:59PM Pacific Time on Monday, April 12th. Edie and I will confer and announce the winner on both of our sites on Wednesday, April 14th.

The fine print

Please note that the Air carrier is meant for small pets — cats or dogs under 15 lbs. Chloe is a 13-lb. dog, about 12″ tall at the shoulders, and although she was comfortable, she only just fit in the carrier.

Please, only one photo per person! Duplicate entries and anonymous entries will be discarded. Please make sure that the e-mail address you send us is valid. The winner must claim the prize within three business days after the date of notification of such prize. A winner’s failure to respond to the prize notification within the specified three business days will be considered such winner’s forfeiture of the prize and an alternate winner may be selected from the pool of eligible entries. If an entrant is found to be ineligible, an alternate winner may be selected from the pool of eligible entries. To enter, you must be a U.S. resident, age 18 or older. Employees, partners and vendors of Dog Jaunt or Will My Dog Hate Me? and their immediate family members are not eligible to enter. We will disqualify any entries that we believe are generated by scripts and other automated technology. All prizes will be awarded. No substitutions including for cash are permitted, except that Dog Jaunt and Will My Dog Hate Me? reserve the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater monetary value for the prize. The winner shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes on the value of the prize.
