TRAVEL THE USA with Made in the USA
It’s getting to be that time again, road-trippin' season. And with over 40 percent of pet owners taking their dogs with them when they travel*, West Paw has toys for the long haul, collars for connection, and beds and blankets for the back seat.
Besides pumping your tourist dollars into local economies, another great way to support My Country, ‘Tis of Thee, is to buy American-Made goods, like pet products from West Paw.
Happy kids and pets make for an even happier road trip, so plan ahead! Unlike kids, pets can’t tellyou they’re hungry or need to stop at the restroom (or local fire hydrant). So, if you're consideringtaking your pet on your next road trip, these travel tips can help ensure that everyone’s journey willbe safe and fun!
And don’t forget to do your part and take care of Mother Earth when traveling. Recycle whenever possible! Your recycled plastic bottles may make their way into our next dog bed!
“Are we there yet?” Dogs can’t talk but if they could, you know this is what they’d ask. West Paw suggests dog owners answer the question with a pack of their dog’s favorite treats inserted into a West Paw Rumbl™, Qwizl®, Tux®, Toppl®, or a Tizzi®. One of these will be sure to keep your dogs mouth on the toy and not on seat covers.
Walk this Way:
Getting out and taking a walk to break up a long car ride is as essential to a dog as it is to a human. So be sure to pack your dog’s Strolls® and Outings® Leash and Collar (don’t forget their ID tags in case they run off).
Don’t Forget the Fetch:
Balls and frisbees are a must have for road trips. Throwing a ball or frisbee around for your dog to chase will release pent up energy that needs to be expelled so they don’t go car-crazy.
Jive® is a durable dog ball available in three sizes for different sized dogs (the small fits in a ball thrower).Zisc® is great for fetch or tug-o-war and don’t forget to flip the Zisc for an automatic water or feeding bowl.
A Tired Dog is a Happy Dog:
All that playing, walking and fetching are bound to make dog’s tired. West Paw has a light-weight, easy-to-wash solution, the Big Sky Mat®. Handcrafted from US-sourced eco-friendly materials both inside and out, the Big Sky Mat is as luxe as it is long-lasting. Toss it in the trunk when it’s not in use to keep it handy for car rides and campsites.
