Pack up the Family, and the Family Pets, as you Hit the Road this Summer

Posted Jun 04 2009 10:09pm

The American Pet Products Association offers some of their top picks
for making summer traveling with your pet safe and more convenient.
According to the American Pet Products Association’s National Pet Owners
Survey, on average dog owners will take their pet on three car trips per
year and cat owners will take their cat on five car trips per year.

Now, pet product manufacturers make everything under the sun to make a
trip with your pet safer, more convenient and enjoyable.

Here are a few must-have products recommended by APPA for
your next trip with your pet:

* The Tote’N Store by PetSTEP International sets a new standard
for portability in the Pet Ramp category. Weighing in at a mere 6 lbs
and opening to 5 feet in length when fully unfolded, Tote’N Store is the
easiest ramp to carry and store. The Tote’N Store will fit in virtually
any vehicle, leaving plenty of room for people, pets and cargo and is
especially great for medium to small dogs that have difficulty jumping
due to age, recent surgery or other physical factors. It is also perfect
for elderly consumers who have trouble lifting their dogs or handling
larger, bulkier ramps.
* Relaxed Dog Travel Calm Formula by Veterinarian’s Best helps
reduce stress and tension caused by travel or loud noises, including
those caused by fireworks and thunder. Travel Calm also helps ease any
discomfort caused by motion, and is all natural. This is great for pets
that may not be so comfortable with traveling. The formula contains
Ginger, Valerian Root, Tryptophan, Pyroidoxine (Vitamin B6), Potassium
and Magnesium and comes in 40 chewable tablets.
* The Skybox Booster Seat by Kurgo offers a safe and secure way
for Fido to accompany you in the car. The Skybox Booster Seat straps on
to the car seat and provides an elevated view out the window for the
important pup. The Booster Seat safely straps pets in for minimal
distraction to the driver and safe travels for your pup. www.kurgo.com

* The To Go Bowl by Furry Travelers is a great travel bowl for
both cats and dogs. This plastic water bowl, available in many
different colors holds up to a liter of water and fits snugly into most
cars’ cup holder consoles, allowing dogs and cats to drink at their own
leisure throughout the trip. The To Go Bowl even has a splash-guard to
prevent spills and a removable cup holder base to store your pet’s
favorite treats! Not only is the To Go Bowl perfect for cars, but also
boats, RV’s and even golf carts. www.furrytravelers.com

* Travelin’ Dog Carrier is a soft sided carrier which fastens
directly to a car’s seat belt. It is versatile and can even convert the
pet seat into a carrier. It also features a direct seat belt to dog
hook up which allows the front of the carrier to be open for a less
confined feel. www.goodpetstuff.com
* The Hydro-Go by Veterinary Ventures is the perfect accessory for
outdoor camping and hiking trips with your pet. It is the first and only
pet canteen with a fold-out funnel bowl. The bowl and canteen work
together to form a funnel, easily allowing any unused water to be poured
back into the canteen. The Hydro-Go(tm) is a great product for those who
enjoy hiking, walking, camping, fishing, hunting, car trips, visits to
the park or any other place you and your pet may go. More importantly,
it ensures that you have enough water when you and your pet are away
from home! www.petfountain.com
