Pets on the go. What accessories will be necessary?

People love trips to different parts of the world. They consider them an interesting adventure, an opportunity to meet new cultures and people, or to taste unique, regional delicacies. Pet owners often decide to take them with them. However, in order for dogs and cats to be as happy as we are, we must pay special attention to the equipment we take for them.

Cat carrier

One of the most popular solutions for cat owners is to take their pets in a solid carrier. A cat locked in it often feels calmer and safer than if it was going “in the wild”. The owners can also be sure that their charges will not hurt themselves, for example by suddenly entering a place that is not intended for them and falling from there. What’s more, the driver is also well protected against a kitten that, for example, climbs under the pedals, which could cause an accident by its careless action.

Harnesses, leashes and car seats

An alternative to the transporters are harnesses and leashes that will allow you to securely fasten the kitten in the place that is intended for him, in particular on a special animal seat. Thanks to this, we will significantly limit the cat’s ability to move around the car, and at the same time, it will gain a bit more freedom than when traveling in a classic, plastic carrier.

Harnesses and leashes can also be used when going for a walk with your cat, provided that he is taught how to behave during that time.

Car mats for dogs

One of the most popular ways of transporting a dog in a car in recent years is to attach a special mat to the back seat. It has two tasks: firstly, it provides a comfortable and safe place for the pet, so that it will surely not fall under the seat and will not be hurt by inadvertence or by sudden braking. At the same time, the dog is provided with adequate space for lying and sitting.

The second task of the car mat is, of course, to protect the upholstery from hair, sand and mud from paws, or from scratching should the animal react violently to an event. Car mats can be additionally supplemented with special mats that absorb moisture and smells, which will be perfect as an additional protection of the upholstery against all kinds of moisture applied to the fur. They can also be useful if our pet is a puppy or senior and has problems with urinary incontinence, because they will not only absorb the liquid itself, but also neutralize the unpleasant smell. You will find such mats in the store

Standard equipment

Of course, in addition to the above-mentioned travel accessories, for our four-legged friend, we must take all the equipment necessary for him on a daily basis. They include, among others, a litter box and litter for a cat, a leash, a collar and a muzzle for a dog, as well as bowls and food for all little ones. You cannot omit the toys that will help us spend time with the pet and de-stress it in a new place, such as a hotel.
