Many of us love traveling. Someone prefers foreign or long-distance travel by plane or train. Others weekly or all summer go to the cottage in their own car or train. And there are those who make distant races on their two-wheeled friend bicycle.
It is nice when you have the opportunity to take your four-legged Friend with you, wherever you are going. Our review of accessories for traveling with animals will help to correctly assemble a pet on the road.
Traveling with animals on the plane.
Before you take a dog or cat with you to the flight, you need to carefully study the rules of transporting animals in a particular airline. As a rule, most of them are allowed to carry up to 8 kilograms of such important additional baggage in the cabin (weight is taken into account along with the container in which the pet must be kept during the entire flight). If the weight of your small dog or cat with the cage exceeds the maximum allowed, you will have to transport it in the luggage compartment. In this case, the Favorite must be able to stand up to full height and turn around in his carrying. Also, it should have air vents, and inside it should be covered with a moisture-absorbing cloth. As such a napkin you are perfectly suited for OUT! Protective mats or LUXSAN absorbent mats.
Of the carriers for flights the best fit plastic containers – boxes Ferplast (Ferplast) or Marchioro (Marchioro). You just have to choose the size for your beloved pet.
Traveling with animals by train or train.
The procedure for transporting animals in trains is not as complicated as with air travel, but it’s still necessary to familiarize yourself with the carrier’s rules before purchasing tickets, since conditions may vary for different countries. The basic rules are: small dogs, cats and other small pets should be located in special containers or bags. A great solution in this case would be such carrying bags as Sturdi, Camon, Hunter and Trixie. Large dogs must be muzzled and on short leashes. It is allowed to carry no more than two dogs in one compartment, and all the places in the compartment must be bought by their owners. When traveling in suburban electric trains, it is enough that your pet does not interfere with anyone – the dogs were muzzled and on a leash, and cats and other small animals – in carriers or cages. You can, for example, plant a cat in a special cart Ferplast Trolley. You should not carry it on yourself, and the pet will be reliably protected from people around.
Travel with animals by car.
It would seem that it may be easier to take a pet on a trip by car? Some owners take their animals with them every day on a journey – around the city or to the region, to other cities or even countries.
The most common way to transport our beloved pets in the car is an auto gama. Such devices are manufactured by Titbit, Ferplast, Trixie and others. Their differences in mounting and color coatings. In general, the essence is the same – in the back seat is attached a large canvas, usually made of thick waterproof fabric that protects the upholstery from dirty paws and wool of the four-footed Friend. Due to the presence of fastenings to the front seats, the pet does not fall into the space between the seats during heavy braking. There are species that are located on the back half of the seat, and then you can put another passenger in the car. Avtogamak is perhaps the most convenient and practical solution for car enthusiasts who have dogs, but, unfortunately, the most unreliable in terms of safety, because the dog in it is left to itself and is not controlled by the owner.
In addition to the hammock, you can and should use a special seat belt, for example, from Trixie. This device will help you fix the pet, and reduce the likelihood of creating interference for the driver on the road.
Another way to transport pets in the car is to install a special grille, fencing the pet from the owner, for example, the company Trixie. It can be installed between the rear and front seats, and you can separate the trunk space from the passenger compartment. Upholstery salon such a decision will not save (except to combine it with the placement of avtogamak), but at least limit the movement of the pet, and will not allow him to interfere with you driving.
The best from the point of view of the security of the owner and his beloved friend will be placing the pet in a special carrying or cage. Of course, if you have a large dog and a car sedan, this option is unlikely to work, but in other cases it is better to make a choice in favor of carrying. So, you will not worry about damage to the cabin of your car, you will not need to reassure your pet and persuade him to sit quietly until the end of the trip, you will know for sure that your cat is sitting where he should be, and not moved under your feet or even worse under the pedals.The results showed that the transportation of animals in special containers would be the safest in the event of an accident. All other options will lead, at least, to serious injuries to the pet, and possibly its owner. However, the choice is always yours.
Dry air conditioner or heat on the street will make you take your pet with you water, especially on long trips. In order to avoid damage to the cabin and frequent stops along the way to quench your thirst, special non-spill bowls were invented, for example, by the company Road Refresher. A special float system does not leave a spray, even if you hit a bump, and the shape of the bowl and velcro on the legs will not allow the pet to overturn it on the way. It will be convenient for you and your home favorite. If you do not stop on the road, and more importantly saving space, you can choose a folding bowl company Ziver or Ferplast.
Traveling with animals on the bike.
Well, when you can let the dog off the leash, and most sit on the bike and pedal. In the presence of a medium or large hardy dog, such dreams can be realized and make regular trips and at the same time jogging for your Friend. But what if you have a small dog and she is physically unable to run for a long time on par with a bicycle? Manufacturers of goods for animals again come to the rescue. For example, the company Ferplast has released special baskets that can be attached to the bike and put your pet there, and Ziver specialists have invented special backpacks for small dogs that will not prevent you from taking a bike ride with your favorite dog.
Whatever way you travel, do not forget about the safety of your Friend away from home. Be sure to hang an adresnik with your phone on a dog or cat’s collar, and also treat your pet with flea and tick remedies and make vaccinations. None of these measures can ever be useful to you, but if you do not take them, the risk increases significantly.
