During these poor economic times, sometimes you just want a simple and practical pet bed that can be used for either your dog or cat at a reasonable price. One of our products manufactured by DDI may just fit your needs.
These dog and cat beds come in assorted colors in a case pack of six. The beds are made from polyester fiber which makes them quite comfortable. The beds are very inexpensive and are a good value for the practical shopper. They come in only one size with dimensions of 25″ x 36″.
Sometimes you may want to blend right in with your outdoor surroundings. Whether your hiking in the mountains or in the forest this deluxe camouflage pet carrier bag will keep your pet safe. This bag is made of cotton and is reinforced with pads at the bottom of it to securely hold your pet. It makes it easy to transport your pet with its adjustable shoulder straps and waist strap (for extra stability). Your pet will be comfortable and safe above all; wherever you go!
This pet carrier is manufactured by CET Domain and comes in small, medium and large sizes.
As I scan the various web sites that advertise dog carriers for purchase, I keep asking myself this question over and over, “What really is the difference between a designer and a practical pet carrier.” It all comes down to one basic question, “How do I define luxury?” or “What would be luxury to my dog?”
The term designer pet carrier is used very loosely in the retail world. One web site will call their $50 pet carrier luxurious and another may consider $500 to be the bottom of the barrel in luxury. We as consumers are programmed through commercialization to think of luxury as top of the line or designer labels. We are accustomed to pay the extra money for a named brand item – as we do when buying clothing, groceries or prescription medicines. But when it comes to pet products, “Does anyone really know who is a named brand or designer pet product manufacturer.”
Most people try to find the best price on the internet (for everything) and this includes dog carriers and soft dog beds. The supplier’s name is often given in the description of the product; however, the manufacturer may remain a mystery. Therefore, it comes down to the appearance of the pet carrier or soft dog bed as to whether you consider it to be a designer or practical brand. I find that anything that does not look like the common product is termed to be “designer” in the product description, which justifies your need to pay extra money. Keep in mind that price does not define luxury when it comes to pet carriers. There is absolutely no reason to try and keep up with the “Jones” when choosing such an important item for your dog.
The most important things to remember when choosing your pet carrier are size, comfort and safety. Only you know what your dog likes and does not like. Make sure that your pet will fit comfortably within the product you choose. Ultimately, the cost for your pet carrier is determined by size and safety features and not by whether it is identified as a practical or a designer pet carrier. Remember that “Luxury is in the Eyes of the Beholder” and that a happy, safe and comfortable companion makes all the difference.
Whether you’re driving to the store or embarking on airline travel with your family pet, your pet needs to travel in comfort and style. The Pet Life Folding Zippered Casual Carrier w/ bottle holder is one of the most popular of all zippered cage carriers. This carrier zippers all around and folds in half. It then Velcro’s in place and transforms into a suitcase.
This Carrier is AIRLINE APPROVED and features a Velcro pouch holder which is great for snacks and belongings. Next to the pouch is a bottle holder with an adjustable strap located on top. You may carry your pet using the included over the shoulder straps or by the handle. Great for Airports!!
This carrier also contains Thinsulate thermal heat retention technology inside the included washable Sherpa pad. Dimensions for this product are L*W*H 16.9*10.2*9.8.
For those of you transporting your pet around to a Spa or a Pet Grooming shop, the folding zippered sporty mesh carrier may be for you. This carrier features a dual mesh breathable netting on the side and comes with a leash holder. Various colors and sizes are available.
As mentioned earlier this week, there are three types of practical pet carriers that are durable and made with high quality similar to higher priced designer pet carriers. These include pet carriers that are worn on the front, back or in a sling position. The Outward Hound Collection of practical petcarriers is a good place to start.
The front style carrier and the pet sling are gaining in popularity by the practical shopper. The Pet-A-Roo Pet Front Style Carrier slips on in seconds and then you place your pet in the kangaroo pouch. Your pet will be comfortable and happy, and you’ll have the benefit of more cuddle time with your best pal. This style is designed to accommodate small dogs and cats and other small animals that are between 10 and 20 pounds. For pets that are less than 10 pounds, the pocket bag front carrier allows you to securely fit your pet in the front pocket, allowing you to walk, hike, or shop. On the other hand, if you prefer a hammock type pouch instead, the Outward Hound Sling-Go Pet Sling would be your choice. This baby style sling is designed specifically for smaller pets up to 20 pounds in weight and makes the practical shopper look very smart.
A new product on the market is the folding zippered casual carrier. This will be discussed in a later blog.
Losing popularity is the back carrier backpack. If interested in one of these the simple pocket bag back carrier that features an adjustable padded shoulder strap and a waist strap for extra stability and weight distribution is one of your choices. It also has a reinforced padded bottom to securely hold your pet.
Have you ever asked yourself the question, “Why should I pay so much for a designer pet carrier when something more practical will do?” In today’s world, young adults believe that their pet is one of the family and they want to spend more time with their loved one. You may be thinking that I am referring just to Man’s Best Friend – The Dog. Nowadays, the family pet is a dog, cat, rabbit, ferret or any other small animals.
All activities that used to be done alone can now be done with your pet using a simple and practical pet carrier. You no longer need to leave your beloved pet home alone whether it is walking, hiking, shopping, or performing household chores… whatever life requires. There are three types of practical pet carriers that are durable and made with high quality similar to higher priced designer pet carriers. These include pet carriers that are worn on the front, back or in a sling position.
Check out my blog tomorrow for a discussion on each of these pet carrier types.
Besides the comfort it brings to your pet, bolster pet beds are an excellent addition to your home’s interior. Since there is a great variety of fabric colors and patterns, matching the bed to your home decor style should be a easy endeavor. Bolster soft dog beds can be purchased in a variety of practical and designer styles, including the popular orthopedic memory foam pet bed versions.
Today’s high quality beds assure the best comfort and support for your dog. Bolster pet beds are made out of fabrics similar in durability to waterproof nylon, which resists spills and stains and keeps the polyester-filled insert totally protected. These resistant fabrics are easy to spot clean.
No matter which bolster type bed you decide to purchase, spend some time doing diligent research to make sure that you’re getting the best quality for your dog which will promote physical health and emotional well being. Colored Sherpa crate beds and Pastel crate beds both manufactured by Slumber Pet are quality bolster beds economically priced. Quality bolster soft dog beds can last for years and your dog will enjoy many quality hours of comfort.
There are many products offered for purchase on the internet that are intended for your pet’s sleeping comfort. The majority of these products go by the name Bolster pet bed. The Bolster pet bed is a product that goes by multiple names but has only one purpose – providing comfort and support for your dog.
A Bolster pet bed is a bed that has either one end or is completely surrounded with an elevated and padded edge called a bolster, which is designed for extra support for the dog. The bolster is usually a separate part from the bottom pillow and base of the bed and is filled with either polyester fiber or polar fleece so it can support the dog’s weight against it. A good bolster soft dog bed is one where both the bottom pillow and the bolster are firm enough to support a dog without losing its shape.
If your dog tends to lean when they sleep they would benefit from this kind of bed. Bolster pet beds provide complete comfort and are suitable for all dogs. I own several Bolster dog beds and I believe you should be curious about them also. Not only will your new puppy or senior dog like sleeping in them, they will also be extremely comfortable.
