Spring Break with Duke and Little Oz #BeSleepypodSafe

March in Florida means two things for us – Spring Break and Global Pet Expo.  It makes for a crazy, busy month especially if you are a working dog like Little Oz.  He represented me at Global Pet Expo in Orlando this past week so I was happy to find out he was able to take a bit of a Spring Break with another working dog, Duke from Sleepypod.

Duke is Sleepypod’s crash-test representative and he spends his days at the Expo showing off Sleepypod products, specifically the Clickit Utility and Clickit Sport safety harnesses.  Duke is always wearing his orange Clickit Sport harness and is happy to show people how the unique Infinity Loop design, in combination with an energy absorbing padded vest, is engineered to work together to distribute and reduce damaging forces in a vehicular accident.

Both Little Oz and Duke had some down time Friday morning of the Expo so they enjoyed a short Spring Break at the Convention Center.  They found a nice CafĂ© where they could relax and people watch.  Of course, passers-by would ask about Duke’s harness so Little Oz would explain that the Clickit Sport is the only dog safety harness to earn a safety certification and five star rating from the Center for Pet Safety.  It seems someone is always working like a dog.

Duke and Little Oz made a stop at the indoor oasis and enjoyed some peace and quiet under the palm trees.  It was a nice break from all the crowds at the Expo.

Little Oz wondered if he and Duke could escape to see a show at Disney Springs but Duke said he could not be away from the Sleepypod booth for too long.  They would have to see Cirque du Soleil another time.

For fun, Duke and Little Oz stopped in the Media Room to take some official Global Pet Expo photos.  Many of the media already know about Sleepypod and their products but some did not realize that the Clickit Sport can also be used as a walking harness.  The Clickit Sport is great for evening walks since it has reflector strips on both the back and front sides.

Upon returning to Sleepypod’s booth, Duke agreed to help us with our upcoming review of the 2016 Kia Optima SX Turbo so you may see more of Duke soon.  We are very grateful to Sleepypod for the opportunity to hang out with Duke for the morning and share information about him and the Clickit Sport with people at Global Pet Expo.
