Pet owners who travel with their four-legged friends have special needs when it comes to grooming and caring for their furry friends.
We put together a list of travel essentials for pet owners, some quirky and irresistible, others innovative, and all modern and useful. Our selection gives you choice, but it is also indicative of current industry trends.
For pets that get nauseous while traveling, NoMo Nausea Dog is a highly-recommended product. It is a unique product, the first of its kind, drug-free, natural, reusable, and recyclable. The band is latex-free and fits most medium to extra-large dogs.
Environment-conscious pet owners will love Eddy Bowl™, a sustainably sourced, recyclable, bowl for pets. This handy little thing folds to fit in your pocket, it is reusable and sanitary and can be used for water and treats.
For long mountain or forest hikes, The Grrowler, a collar with an integrated water bowl, is a great choice too. This also features a p cord leash for quick restraint and use in emergency situations.
The hooded Packable Rain Poncho is great for rainy days. It is made by RC Pets, and comes in a variety of colors and sizes.
For warm weather, try the Sun Shield Tee, which blocks 98% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. This product can be customized to include sleeves. Just email them with your special requests.
Flint is a pocket-sized lint roller. It is a unique product, the first of its kind, being retractable, reusable, refillable, and recyclable. It removes sweater pill, lint, and pet hair from clothing and other surfaces.
Grooming is important when you travel with pets too. Soap bars are better than shampoos because they don’t spill. The Scented Pet Goat Milk Soap is a lot easier to rinse off than other pet soaps and shampoos. It is scented with essential oils that are designed to help repel irritating bugs.
The HandsOn Gloves are our favorite product for grooming, as they feel like a real human touch when used. The gloves feature scrubbing nodules on fingers and palms that massage gently and effectively, providing for healthy skin and coat for your pet.
Another great product is the Fifth Paw hands-free dog poop holder, which allows you to enjoy your walk with your four-legged friend without juggling bags of doody.
Finally, it’s always great to be able to track your pet’s location. You can use TrackR bravo, a coin-sized Bluetooth device that can be attached to keys and luggage, but also to pets to make sure they never get lost. You can pair the device with its free iPhone/Android app, which helps you locate lost or misplaced items in seconds.
