The Best Pet Travel Accessories for Dogs

Whether it's for the week-end or the summer holidays, many of us could not imagine leaving our furry friends behind at a boarding kennel or with a pet sitter.

Taking our dogs on holidays with us does create some special memories and also alleviates the worry of not knowing how they will be coping especially if you have a senior or an anxious dog.

There are some great pet travel accessories to keep our dogs both safe and comfortable whilst travelling in the car or at our destination. Here are our top picks of pet travel accessories this year ...

The durable, waterproof top layer provides excellent protection against your dog’s nails while keeping dirt, sand and water off your seats. Two large built-in pockets provide ample storage for travel essentials and a strong mesh ‘window’ keeps you and your dog connected whilst allowing air to flow freely through to the backseat.

With a universal fit, there’s no need to buy several covers to suit multiple cars.
It comes with a Storage Tote Bag making it the perfect present for the dog lover in your life!
