Before you hit the road this holiday season, be sure your pets are as safe as you are in your vehicle. The great news it that if you’re as big of a fan of the Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed as I am, you’re going to be very excited about their most recent news. Sleepypod recently introduced the PPRS Handilock which has dramatically increased the safety of their carriers while traveling.

The PPRS Handilock was named a Top Performing Pet Carrier in a Subaru of America, Inc. and Center for Pet Safety (CPS) collaborative study to test the effectiveness of pet carriers and crates in crash situations. This handy little gadget simply attaches to the carrier closure. If you already own a Sleepypod, the PPRS Handilock is available free of charge until December 31, 2015. Future purchases of the Sleepypod mobile bed will include the PPRS Handilock without additional charge.

Is it Too Hot For Spot?

It’s summertime here in the den of the pack leader. With desert temperatures soaring well into the hundreds, it’s become our very important mission to educate others on the dangers of keeping pets in hot cars and walking them over hot pavement. This time of year, the streets are like liquid hot magma and we hate to see any animal burn their paws. But, it happens every day. Whether it’s walking out in the late afternoon to grab the mail, or heading across pavement into the store, it’s too hot for Spot to be walking around out there!

More importantly, it’s FAR too hot to leave a pet in a car for any length of time. This is a given in the deserts of the Southwest, but in the Pacific Northwest or Eastern area of our great country, it may not be so obvious. That’s where this week’s featured product, Too Hot for Spot? Pet Thermometer , comes into play.

Luggage for your Dogs: A look at the Mountain Smith K9 Cube

Once, while on a camping road trip thru Colorado with my two wolf hybrids, my friend and I arrived at my very remote camping spot to find my dogs had consumed the steaks we had so looked forward to eating that night. Somehow, they had managed to lift the lid of my cooler and help themselves to a five-star meal, while I ended up eating Top Ramen in the desert at 8 pm.

Traveling with pets offers a number of logistical issues you often need to overcome. Dogs are usually able to get their snouts into any of your belonging. Which is why we were thrilled to look at some organizational items designed specifically for life on the road with your pets. Whether you camp, compete in dog sports, or just enjoy a day at the dog park, you’ll find something you’ll love in these modular hauler systems!

The Mountainsmith K9 Cube Dog Pack is a way of organizing your items into individualized, removable pockets. It helps to keep your food away from your pets’ food, toys away from the dog, and easy access to emergency supplies (like first aid kits, or – say, treats…)

sleepypod airAs most of you know, I’ve always been a fan of Sleepypod’s products. They do one thing and they do it well. Make perfect pet beds. Our first review was on the SleepyPod, and now they have the Sleepypod Air. This carrier is more than your average carrier.  It’s something that will revolutionize in-cabin pet travel. The Air adapts to your situation. It can be strapped to a pullman, stored under the seat, safely strapped into a seatbelt, or just carried. On top of that, it folds completely flat with just a flick of the wrist so when you’re not using it, it’s out of sight.
