Anyone who follows me on Instagram knows how much I travel with my furry babies, Lexi and Harley. I love watching them get to explore new territories, whether it’s kicking up sand at the beach or licking freshly-fallen snow. As much fun as it is venturing away from home as a family, I know my first priority is always to keep them safe. I am constantly keeping an eye out for products meant to protect my pups while we are away from home.
Regardless if it’s a road trip or a quick drive to the store, dogs are just like us, and should really be wearing a seatbelt. One hard press on the brakes is enough to send an animal tumbling. I can’t bear the thought of what could happen in the event of an accident.
Lexi and Harley are cool in their carriers because I make sure they’re as cozy as possible. I choose carriers appropriate for their size that feature the most ventilation. I also add a soft blanket to the bottom along with one of their favorite stuffed animals for comfort. These various modes of transportation for small dogs are alright by me. My rule of thumb: if it doesn’t look like something I’d enjoy, my pets probably wouldn’t either and therefore I’ll pass.
Here are some of Lexi and Harley’s favorite ways to travel — they’re always comfortable and always in style!
