Car journeys aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. It’s exciting to think of the destination, however far or near it may be, but actually getting there can be a right pain. People get restless, a whopper of a traffic jam appears out of nowhere (let the road rage commence) and worst of all; endless games of ‘I spy’ occur. But as distressing as it is for us, your furry friend can also become very uncomfortable. At DoggieGadgets.com we believe that these following products will improve the car journey for your pup and will also make your life a lot easier!
Hydration is key when travelling with your dog as it helps to maintain their body temperature and avoid digestive problems. This durable and practical Travel Water Bottle and Bowl can easily provide water whenever your dog has a need for some refreshing h20. It comes in a variety of colours and comes in two sizes (200ml/500ml) to suit the size of your dog. The lid is attached to the bowl so you can simply lift the bottle up and squeeze to control the amount you put in; it’s a nice feature if you don’t want the water to overflow and spill in your lovely car. The lid is also very secure so no leakages will occur. Another great feature of this item is the handy little clip so it won’t get lost in the depths of your bag. You can even attach it to a lead when going on longer walks, no more drinking from muddy puddles!
