We are a world of animal lovers. Nowadays, many people prefer the silent company of their pets over the loud chatter of social interaction. Needless to say, this bond is cherished and every owner wants the best for their pet. While the house is stacked with pet goodies, what about the time you decide to take a trip with your friend? We have compiled a list of travel gear that you must have to enhance the comfort of your pet and also yourself. From safety to efficiency, these accessories will make the trip with your furry mate, a trip to remember.
Portable Water Bottle
We may be used to bottles but our little pals will definitely need a bowl from which they can lick their water. Traditional bowls can be bulky and hard to carry. Not to mention the inevitable mess that come with the pets splashing the water. You do not want to deal with that while travelling. Instead, you can now get a portable water bottle for your dog, cat or really, any other pet. These bottles have an attached bowl-like drinking scooper at the end of the bottle so that your pet can lap up their water easily. Easy to carry and fill, this reduces used space in your luggage.
We may have shoes to protect our feet from the dirt and dust encountered while travelling, but what about our furry friends? While travelling, especially camping, their paws can get muddy and dirty. The additional headache of finding your floors covered in strokes of brown is not pleasing to think about. For those who travel frequently with pets, it might be time to invest in a paw cleaner. Simply fill the cylindrical item with water and dip your pet’s paw in it. The bristles will clean up the mess. Dirty homes need to be your last concern on your travels.

Tracker and Activity Monitor
Foreign lands can be as confusing to your pet as they might be to you, if not more. There is constant risk of your pet getting scared or running around and getting lost. In such a scenario, it could be really tough to find your pet when you yourself and unsure of your surroundings. For this very reason, it is important to get a tracker fit on your pet. The tracker can comfortably be attached to the collar of your pet and then connected to your phone. This way you can always check where your pet is, on your phone.

This had to be the expected item in travel gear for pets. It is tough to handle a restless pet while trying to map out travelling procedures. Instead, invest in a bubble carrier. These cute bags look like a bag pack and function as a carrier. With air holes fused through the material, your pet will experience no discomfort in breathing. Additionally, a transparent “bubble” is spread across the surface to ensure that your pet can view everything from inside the bag. These carriers are easy to travel with and very efficient, especially in crowded areas.

First Aid kit
First Aid is a necessary initial help when it comes to injuries. Humans have used first aid for years and safety products keep evolving and growing. However, what must one do when their pet gets injured? Most pet owners value the safety of their pet and do not want any discomfort for their furry friends. To ensure the promise of safety, carry a pet first aid kit. The kit is equipped with bandages, gauze, antiseptic wipes and gloves- everything you need to tend to your animal in a case of emergency. Do not fret in such scenarios. Just be prepared.

You might ask ‘why’? And to that we say ‘why not’? Pet owners wish for the best for their companions. So, might as well pamper them a bit. If your pet hates getting their coat wet as much as you do, invest in a pet umbrella. These umbrellas are inverted with the curve of the umbrella attached to the handle from the outside. Simply direct the umbrella towards your pet and shield them with the dome of the umbrella.
