Whether it’s a quick visit to the Vet or a longer adventure; a ten minute trip to town or a long road trip on holiday, travelling safely with your pet is a must. It is a legal requirement to ensure your pet is secure when travelling in the car for both your pet’s and your safety. Here we take a look at various types of travel accessory so you can make an informed decision as to which is the best for you.
The Ellie-Bo slanted crates have been popular for small-medium sized for a while and we have now introduced care crates in larger sizes for dogs up to the size of a Labrador. The Trixie Friends on Tour crates are premium, sturdy metal crates and come in single and double versions.
A car seatbelt is a great option if you want to travel with your dog in the main part of the car with you. They are ideal for larger dogs who are too big for a car crate. Use in conjunction with a well fitting harness and make sure it isn’t too long; you don’t want your dog to be able to move around too much. The length should be just comfortable enough for them to sit and lay without it pulling.
Small Breed Dog and Cat Carriers
If you have a smaller dog or a cat and are looking for a convenient carrier, there are a number of new additions to our range. The Petz- Abroad collection has some super cute, futuristic looking designs in bright contemporary colours - perfect for toy dog breeds and your feline friends! There are also some practical design from Trixie which will make trips to the vet a breeze and of course the ever popular Catit Cabrio Cat Carrier - now available in three stylish new colours!
Feeding on the go
We have some great new accessories from H2O and Texas Popware that will make feeding and watering your pets on the go super easy. Travel bowls and water cups with pop up bowls can be stored easily in travel bags and used as when needed on longer journeys. The snack-duo is our favourite design as it stores food or treats in one side and water in the other and comes with a handy pop-up bowl for on-the-go snack breaks.
If you’re looking for the ultimate travel dining set, you will love the new sets from Overland Dog Gear. The sets come in three different sizes and include everything you need for various types of trip. Great for all the adventuring dogs out there!
