Ruffwear to the Rescue for Arden and Her Pets’ 2,800-mile Road Trip

As The Pet Health and Safety Coach, I spend a lot of time on the road with Pet Safety Cat Casey and Pet Safety Dog Kona. Occasionally, Cleo, my 14-year-old retired K9 surfer, joins us. For all of us who travel with our pets, one way to stay sane –and safe — is to pack the right pet essentials.

So, on a recent five-week, 2,800-mile round trip from Dallas to San Diego where we conducted several pet behavior and pet first aid classes, I made sure that my SUV contained these two Ruffwear products:

  • The Ruffwear Haul Bag Water-resistant and roomy with a sturdy zipper, this pet travel bag easily held all the pet food, leashes, doggy potty bags, grooming wipes and favorite toys for my four-legged travel mates. It was the ideal size and didn’t take up a lot of cargo space. And, I used its outside pockets to stash items I needed to need quickly: doggy bags, bag of treats, bottled water and collapsible water bowl. Keeping all the pet stuff in one bag made transporting luggage into the hotel rooms each night so much more convenient
  • The Ruffwear Hydro Plane High-Floating Disc: To break up the monotony during those long road trips, I made sure to pack Kona’s favorite toy — this durable, lightweight disc. Kona is a two-year-old Jack Russell terrier mix who needs –and deserves — to s-t-r-e-t-c-h her legs and engage in mini-play sessions during road trips. Each time we found a safe place for her to run, I would hurl the Hydro Plane in the air and watch with amusement as Kona sprinted, leaped to catch it and then wrestle it to the ground with great glee. I like that this disc is gentle on her mouth and can even float for times when we are at dog-friendly beaches.

Gotta go — it’s time for Kona, Casey and I to hit the road again!

Nap time is ah…..so great in a TrustyPup Bed

You know the saying, “Let sleeping dogs lie.” Well, in our pet household, nap time is a prized activity among Kona, Cleo and Jeanne, who range in age from two to 14. Sure, we have sofas and beds, but this Terrific Terrier Trio delighted in taking turns snoozing in the comfy Remedy Rest Deluxe Memory Foam Pet Bed made by TrustyPup.

Need evidence? Just check out this series of photos showcasing each dog’s desire to circle, plop and snooze in this bed that features cushions that ease achy joints and conforms to each dog’s shape. Nice!

Other pluses: TrustyPup beds come in various sizes, the covers are machine washable and the beds are not only functional, but eye-appealing as well. With the holidays approaching, treat your favorite canine to one of these beds now available at Walmart, Target, Krogers and online at Amazon.com. And learn more by visiting its Facebook Page. It’s nap time!
