With some better weather forecast, the Spring Bank Holiday is the perfect opportunity to take an impromptu road trip to somewhere lovely. If you’re considering taking your dog along for the ride, these Pet Travel Essentials will ensure a marvellous mini-break with your sidekick.
On the road…
Britain is beautiful – right on our doorstep we have lush green valleys, jaw-dropping views and dramatic coastlines ready to explore. For dogs, it’s hard to resist rolling around in the soft sand, enjoying a run in the sea breeze, foraging for sticks on the shore and taking the plunge in the refreshing sea. Your dog will love romping through the beautiful British countryside, hiding in the long grass and spashing through the muddy puddles! Wherever you’re headed, every dog owner knows that the best trips end messily! To avoid having a mucky pup (and a mucky car!) for the journey home, try the Pennine Dry Dog Bag – a super absorbent bag designed to speed up the cleaning and drying process after a wet, sandy or muddy walk!
The Ancol Car Harness is a travel must-have for regular back seat doggy drivers. Designed to prevent dogs from moving around in the car, the harness helps to improve the safety of pets, passengers and drivers. The handy harness fits all popular seat belt sockets and can also be unclipped and used for walking and exercise!
The Road Refresher Non Spill Water Bowl minimises mess – the internal floating plate prevents spills and reduces slobber by up to 90%.
In light of the recent weather, perhaps you’ve wisely decided to head for warmer climes. Don’t forget dogs need sun protection too. Petkin Dog Sunscreen Wipes are fabulously handy, heavy duty, easy to apply and contain SPF sunscreen, designed to protect your dog’s skin during long, hot days. Scented with delicious vanilla and coconut, the non-greasy, non-sticky formula is easy to apply with minimum fuss.
The Paramount Petzden Canvas Fold Flat Dog Carrier is great for jet-setting hounds. Lightweight, portable and foldable, it is easy to assemble for use and simple to collapse for storage – ideal for fitting into a suitcase!
The Rosewood Options Deluxe is a sturdy pet carrier suitable for air travel with a front locking door, and an opening wire roof for easier access to the carrier. The Rosewood Options Deluxe is an airline approved dog and cat carrier, designed to current IATA specifications and should be suitable for an aircraft’s hold. (Do check with your airline first though).
