If you have a pet, you may or may not know how to make your pet more comfortable when traveling. Even if your pup loves a good car ride, many dogs don’t do well on a long car trip. When we take Ringo on the road, we make sure we have what we need to make him as comfortable as possible. We usually don’t travel more than a few hours away but sometimes it can be as long as 8-10 hours. When traveling to see the in-laws in FL, we wanted to take Ringo with us but weren’t sure how to prepare for it, so I did a quick search. Here are some very logical and very smart tips:
Make Your Pet More Comfortable When Traveling
Pack Smart: Just like you, your dog needs specific items to make the trip easier on everyone. The top items you need to pack are travel water and food bowls, poop bags, favorite toy and blanket, crate and cover and treats. One of the coolest products you can buy is the portable bowls. I love these things! They are lightweight, convenient and fold flat when not in use.
Equipment: There are some key items you do not want to be without on the road with your pooch. Many states require your pet to be strapped in safely when traveling. You can find seatbelts at any pet store and they are one of the smartest things you can buy. This makes traveling with your pet safe for both you and them. It is dangerous to drive with a pet on your lap and it is illegal in most states as well. Be sure you have a nice and comfy carrier for your pet. If you have cats, they will be much more comfortable in a carrier that is large enough for them to stretch and has enough padding. If you are looking for a very well made and comfortable carrier, Sturdi Products is a fantastic place to look. If you are traveling with your pet, they probably have exactly what you need.
Most Comfortable Pet Carrier
If you are in the market for the most comfortable pet carrier available, Sturdi Products has it. When I was looking through the Sturdi Products website, I was impressed with the selection. Even before the carrier came, I knew it would be perfect just from the picture. I was sent the large SturdiBag ($89.95) and it is a beauty! The SturdiBag can carry a pet up to 40 pounds, and is suitable for cats or medium breed dogs like a Jack Russell. The SturdiBag is lightweight, is made extremely well, and has a very thick padding, strong zippers and nice and sturdy carrying straps. Hazel and Meap were so interested in the SturdiBag that we didn’t need to coax them one bit. If you want a carrier or any number of excellent products for your pets, Sturdi Products is a fantastic place to fill your needs.
One reader will win a SturdiBag in the size and color of their choice, ($64.95-$94.95) depending on availability.
