Making Vehicle Pet Travel Easy and Safe
by Susan Osmanski
In days gone by, car travel with the family pet was potentially hazardous for both the animal and owner. Pets could get rambunctious at just the wrong time, causing potential distractions for the driver. Even if the family pet was calm and quiet, any sudden stops could hurl the animal forward, striking the nearest hard surface. This would often result in severe injury or death for the pet.
On a lighter note, having a wet or shedding dog could make a lot of work for the family member responsible for cleaning out the car or van.
Today, more and more people consider their pets as true members of their families, and there are now many pet travel products that make traveling with pets easier and much safer, and help keep the interior of expensive vehicles much cleaner.
More pets are living longer and can suffer from arthritis just as their human companions, restricting their ability to get into vehicles. There are a variety of telescoping pet travel ramps that allow aging or ailing pets to comfortably gain access to vehicles.
Stain resistant and washable seat covers and cargo liners are great pet travel accessories that protect back seats and cargo areas of SUVs. Net pet barriers can keep animals in the safe area of your vehicle and keep them from distracting the driver.
Truly pampered pets can ride in style in booster seats, right next to their owners. These pet travel seats are supported from below, so your pet has a great view along with a comfortable ride. There are straps to secure your pet to the basket of the booster seat. The fabric liners are machine washable so the seat stays clean and fresh.
Finally, there are various sizes of padded pet vehicle safety harnesses that secure your pet to the vehicle's seat belt system. The safety harness keeps your pet from distracting the driver and keeps your pet secure in the event of a sudden stop. The fleece-lined vest is also washable.
Our line of Solvit Products makes pet travel safer and more enjoyable for pampered pets and their loving owners. Solvit Products' motto is "No Pet Left Behind". With the variety and quality of Solvit Products, your pet can keep you company just about anywhere you go.
