Read here to find out how to reach your destination safely every trip.
That might come in the form of a well-ventilated, TSA-approved pet carrier as an alternative to a pet crate if you are flying somewhere. You might like the idea of having your small dog, or puppy in a backpack that will more easily allow you to carry them with you. Your dog will be appreciative of having a calming barrier between them and the craziness of the airport or train station.
In the car, you want to make sure that you can buckle your dog’s seat belt and keep them in place. In this case, you should take a look at a crash-tested harness. You can thread the seat belt through a loop on the harness, and keep them safely in the backseat of the vehicle for the duration of your driving time. See why your dog may need a harness here.
You can also combine a harness with dog car seats, or a booster seat for extra comfort and support for your dog. For large dogs, you can turn the cargo area of your car into one big bed, and allow the dog to really spread out while still keeping them safe at the same time. You could also use a specialized seat cover to create a barrier between the front and back of the car.
Our inventory of travel aids isn’t just limited to carriers and harnesses. No, we’ve also got you covered on the essential accessories, and outdoor gear you’ll need while away from your home base as well. If you are going on an outdoor adventure, make sure that your companion stays well-fed and well hydrated with a portable bowl. For extra comfort try a water bowl with a cooling insert! If you have a senior dog that loves to travel but has difficulty doing so due to sore joints, or other discomforts, we’ve got what you need. If your dog has trouble exiting the car, get a ramp or set of portable steps that will act like a convenient bridge between your vehicle and your dog. If you’ve tried this and you are looking for another solution, we also sell a dog lifter that will make it easy to lift your dog in and out of your car.
