Best Gear For Car Trips With Your Dog

In the dog days of summer, high gas prices are keeping vacationers a little closer to home. FetchDog has a line up of great car travel gear that makes it easy to take your beloved pooch along with you. Now those day trips and long weekends can be more like a real vacation.

Portland, ME (PRWEB) July 17, 2008

With gas prices zooming toward $5.00 a gallon, consumers across the country are staying a little closer to home this summer. Creative day trips and long weekends are replacing the epic journey to far-away vacation hide outs.

Taking your dog along makes these trips feel a lot more like little vacations. And less like a cheesy trade-off for a real summer get away.

Innovative dog products available at FetchDog. com - designed for safety, portability and keeping the car tidy - make car-cation a breeze.

"Start by choosing a proper restraint or enclosure system, based on the size of your dog and the kind of car you drive," says Gretchen Kruysman of FetchDog. "It'll keep your dog secure and safe, but also prevents the frenzy of a canine leaping over seats, upturning beverages, and sending Happy Meals all over the place."

Starting with safety in mind, there are dozens of ways to outfit your vehicle, and your dog, fashionably and affordably. And, in consideration of how much you'll be spending on gas, FetchDog has placed its entire collection of dog gear for your car on sale at 20% off. It's all in one convenient place in the Car Travel Shop on FetchDog. com.

Here are just a few of the newest and most stylin' products for getting your Lab off your lap and into a proper travel position:

About FetchDog
FetchDog began as the dream of a bunch of dog-crazy friends with a common complaint--why was there no great place online to shop for our dogs or to connect with dog experts and other dog lovers?

We wanted products that were sturdy, practical, yet beautiful to look at; thoughtfully-designed items that would complement our lives and our lifestyles. Naturally healthy food, treats, and health care products free of chemicals and byproducts. Most of all, we wanted all these things in one convenient place.

That's FetchDog. Shop with us, share with us, at http://www. fetchdog. com.
