Sleepypod does ship to Canada, I found this on the internet. https://sleepypod.com/canada/customer-service/Looks like sleepypod doesn't deliver to canada? Sigh.
The rocketeer looks ridiculous and takes the 'small dogs are furry human infants' school of thought way too far.... I would worry about back issues from long term use.
I looked at the kurgo harness redesign crash test videos. I don't like the dummy they chose, as it appears to be solid plastic. Sure, this pyramid shaped dog object doesn't move, but what about the legs of a real dog?
Ruffwear's load up harness looks interesting. Ruffwear makes dog climbing/belaying harnesses for dogs, so they shold have some understanding about dog body mechanics. They used a similar type of dog model to CPS, and the same testing standards. They seem to claim that although they wouldn't meet excursion limits in the CPS testing for medium and large dogs, the bottom held restraint gives better support to keeping the dog upright and from flying off the seat. Hmmm.... https://blog.ruffwear.com/2015/01/29/ruffwear-load-up-harness-faqs/ . They have xxs sizing too, which might work for smaller dogs?
I would really love some more independent testing of these dog safety products.
Now off to go drive 5 hrs with my pup on North America's busiest highway, whilst blocking all of these crash test videos from my head!!!
They do have carriers in small and smaller sizes. Too small for my guys (they're too long butt to nose to fit in any of the certified carriers) but this is a possibility for your two. These things are all pricey, til you consider the cost of one vet visit for a simple ear infection.I checked out Sleepy Pod, and (deep sigh), they don't have sizes for x-small. Maybe they'll come out with these in 2020.
Michigan Gal, read through the CPS site....tethering your dog to the seat belt may not be safe, it can cause back injuries depending on what you’re doing.For my 40 bound skinny dog I used a conventional harness, the old fashioned kind. You can buy a very short heavy leash designed to be used in the car to buckle the dog in. I thought this worked quite well. For a very small dog I would look at using a pet carrier and buckling the carrier in.
Vita, they have carriers that passed the testing and if I had a tpoo, I would use a sleepypod carrier or any other carrier that passed the testing.I checked out Sleepy Pod, and (deep sigh), they don't have sizes for x-small. Maybe they'll come out with these in 2020.
