Pet owners consider taking their pets—especially small dogs—for a drive this time of year should consider buying three accessories: a travel bag carrier, a portable water dish and a cooling bandana. The Posh Puppy Boutique sells several fashionable variations of each.
Instead of leaving your dog in a hot car, where soaring temperatures will quickly kill your pet, consider bringing him or her inside with you.
Among our newest arrivals are several purse-inspired pet carriers from Kwigy-Bo Alexa. The camouflage model ($140) is approved by most airlines, has side flaps for complete concealment, pleather trim and a removable comfort pad.
The Camel model ($180) is made with animal friendly leather and silver hardware. It has inner and outer storage pockets and roll-down side flaps. It is also available in pink, gray and several other colors.
All of these carriers show your fine fashion sense while also giving your dog a bird’s eye view of their surroundings.
Another version tells everyone you have a special passenger, since the exterior pockets are labeled. However, this fun and funky Brazilian Art Dog Carrier ($375) is made from 100 percent recycled canvas.
Dogs also get thirsty even faster than humans, since they exchange heat by panting. Bringing a small collapsible bowl and letting your dog drink is a great way to keep them healthy.
The Aqua Bol ($8) folds completely flat is about the size of a credit card and fits in your purse or pocket. It comes in pink, beige and black.
The Baybrown Go Everywhere Bowl ($28), with its vibrant Sunbrella colors, is another portable and compact way to give your dog a drink or snack.
The Designer Cool-It Cooling Bandana ($8) is filled with non-toxic polymer crystals that absorb up to 30 times their weight in water, keeping your pet cool for hours. Edged with reflective tape, the bandana also adds visibility for those later afternoon or early evening walks.
For longer trips, consider bringing the bright pink Food Tote Travel-Tainer ($25) that holds 32 quarts of dry food and comes with two attached 2-cup food bowls connected by a handle. Simply remove the handle, pull off the dishes, twist off the top and pour.
