What would you like to do?
Copy your production database to your staging database hosted on Heroku
1) backup production database:
heroku pgbackups:capture --expire --remote production
2) obtain url string to backup from step 1:
heroku pgbackups:url --app production_app_name --remote production_app_branch_name
3) transfer backup from production to staging app:
heroku pgbackups:restore DATABASE 'production_app_backup_url_string_from_step_2' --app production_app_name --app staging_app_branch_name

in step 3, I think you meant staging_app_name instead of production_app_name
