Pet Travel: Four Essentials for the Holidays

It’s that time of year to celebrate with family, friends and our furry fellows. Here are the things you need to make traveling with your pup or cat simple and enjoyable this holiday season. 

Chic Carrier

If you’re planning on traveling with your fur family this holiday season then you will need a stylish — yet practical — tote. Henri Bendel’s Luxury Pet Carrier is an exciting option.  This bag can hold an animal that weighs up to 11 pounds, and it has a mesh top and side panel windows. The luxe carrier is made from Saffiano leather, but it also has a Nylon lining for easy cleaning. However, the most pet-friendly part is that the bag zips flat to create a play mat, which we think is perfect for the car. Purchase the carrier at any of the 30 Henri Bendel shops.

Every home, including your holiday retreat, needs a dog bed for your favorite pup. We can’t get enough of Vintage White Elephant’s pet beds, which are handmade and made from both new and vintage fabrics found around the world. These fashionable beds are bound to match any interior, and completely custom beds can be ordered to fit design and size needs. The best part is that the owners can unzip them and throw the cover in the washing machine. Celebrities like Lena Dunham and Eric Stonestreet even have beds for their furry, best friends. Place orders at www.vintagewhiteelephant.com. 

Holiday Treat

Dogs need a holiday getaway too, and the Napa River Inn caters to all canine needs. They will relax on a custom-designed blanket that is embroidered with the Napa River Inn logo. Then they will enjoy treats that only Napa Valley could create like the char-dog-nay and the cab-bone-nay dog biscuits, which are made with real wine. Next, it’s off to the spa where walks, more biscuits and doggie massages await. 

Precious Cargo

Posh, pet parents will appreciate a piece of sturdy luggage to transport all of Roscoe’s necessities like food bowls, life jackets, toys and more toys. Pelican Products’ EL27 Weekender with Enhanced Travel System will get all those bulky items to your destination with ease, no matter if they are going on a jet, yacht or in a luxury vehicle.

In fact, the EL27 has been tested to be waterproof (it can be submerged for up to one hour in three feet of water), it is crushproof with up to 1,500 pounds, and this piece also has locking latches and a TSA-approved combination lock, keeping all your pup’s or kitty’s accessories secure.
