Summer is a perfect time to take a vacation with your best friend along. If you plan on driving or hiking for any length of time you may want to take a look at a few handy items we have that will make life alot easier.
If you plan a trip in the car, dont forget about your pet. The Portable PET Waterboy is perfect to hold water. It is great in a RV, or SUV. This holds 3 quarts of water, and it is easy to fill. Best part about this is it is designed not to splash. If you need something to hold food and water take a look at the Portable PET Food Tote. Easy to carry, compact and lightweight, this is perfect if you are traveling. This will hold 8 cups of food.
If you have ever traveled with a pet. First there is the hair, then add the mud. Consider the Classic Accessories Heritage Rear Seat Protector. This fits most cars, minivans or SUVs. Installs quickly and will stay in place. It folds up nice and flat for easy storage. Protecting that car from smell, mud, scratches and moisture is important.
Traveling with a older dog makes things a little more complicated. It is hard for them to jump in and out of a vehicle, yet they want to participate with everything you do.
