It appears Christmas is just around the corner which means shopping for that perfect gift for each family member and friends. Kirby is a member of our family so of course his name is on the list especially since he has been such a good boy all year long. He usually has a few presents under the tree to unwrap and his very own stocking filled with goodies from Santa.
I know he’s not the only dog celebrating Christmas with his family so I wanted to remind everyone of the fabulous and useful products from Solvit Pet Products, who's slogan is "No Pet Left Behind". We proudly own several of these products because not only are they made to last but also look oh so stylish.
1. For travel safety and the peace of mind that it brings, Solvit Products has a Deluxe and Economy Car Safety Harness ($20-$40 MSRP price range) that will help ensure the safety of both pet and driver. These pet harnesses have undergone rigorous testing to ensure that they will restrain a dog during sudden stops and also prevent them from becoming a dangerous distraction for the driver. Both harnesses come in several sizes and have comfortable-to-wear vests with leash attachment points.
2. Solvit Products offers The Pet Safety Seat ($80 MSRP) which is a must have for small traveling pets to keep them secured in comfort while letting them take advantage of the views outside. The Safe-T-Core™ technology has been tested to 175 lbs. and installs securely in one minute using the car's seat belt with an adjustable safety tether which has been crash tested to 2,000 lbs. You can read my review for more information. For small pets you can also use their booster seats which hang from the headrest.
3. For the on-the-go dog, Solvit Products offers the Homeaway Travel Organizer Kit ($59 MSRP). When this attractive bag is fully loaded it can carry all of those items needed to feel at home on the road including: leash, towel, chew toy, fetch toy, blanket, brush, medications, first aid supplies and the all important “poop bags.” Add to that the ten-cup food bag, unbreakable water bottle and collapsible bowls and your four-legged road warrior will be ready for all the rigors of some serious sightseeing. Check out our review to discover just how amazing this travel bag is.
4. To solve the problem of how to help smaller and older dogs reach their favorite bed or couch there is the PupSTEP XL Stairs ($89 MSRP). Despite weighing only 9 lbs. these uniquely designed stairs will support over 200 lbs. making them suitable for all sizes of dogs. Built in side rails and non-skid feet allow pets to climb these stairs with confidence and when not in use the steps fold down for easy storage and transport. We've been using these steps since Kirby was a small pup so why I haven't written a review yet is beyond me but I can say Kirby and each of our fosters love them!
5. For those smaller pets that don’t want to be left behind when it’s time for a bike ride Solvit makes the Wicker Tagalong Bicycle Basket ($89 MSRP). Designed for pets weighing up to 13 lbs. this handlebar-mounted basket utilizes authentic rattan construction and also includes a sunshade that can be removed for top down, wind-in-the-hair cruising. The full sheepskin liner cradles pets in comfort and is easily removed for washing. An adjustable safety leash keeps pets secure while riding.
6. For pets that need a little help getting out and about there is the Houndabout Bicycle Trailer ($249-$399 MSRP). This stroller/jogger/bicycle trailer is designed from the ground-up with special needs pets in mind. It is perfect for older, invalid or convalescing pets. The heavy-duty frame and large, air-filled tires give a smooth ride over most terrain and the spacious cabin, features over-sized cushions, providing superior comfort for that special pet, making it possible for them to go everywhere you go.
These are the Solvit products we use or have heard great raves from others. Solvit also carries quality made car ramps, car seat covers, front seat net barriers, and cargo liners so there's no reason to leave your pet behind. They also carry furniture protectors for the home which would be a great gift for mom!
