Between 37% and 47% of Americans own a dog, according to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), and between 30% and 3% own a cat. And whether it’s a trip to the veterinarian or the park, at some point most of those pets will take a ride in a car. Others will travel farther with their owners—by car, rail, or air—or stay in a pet-friendly hotel.
Now, Knoxville, Tennessee-based PetSafe has announced that it is expanding its travel and mobility product lines with six new products—including steps, ramps, booster seats, safety seats, cargo liners, and more. And the company says, to adapt to modern home and automobile design trends, the new product options feature neutral color palettes.
“We want to ensure our travel and mobility products not only satisfy functional needs, but also integrate seamlessly with today’s design preferences,” says Mandie Sweetnam, Travel and Access Category manager for nearly 30-year-old brand. “This will allow us to provide options that blend in perfectly with modern bedroom and car designs; while ensuring safety and joint health remain a top priority.”
The PetSafe CozyUp Folding Pet Steps, lightweight, no-slip pet steps that can be simply stored when not in use, is now available in gray. Additionally, PetSafe® is releasing its CozyUp Bed Ramp in white, which offers a gentle slope with a tufted carpet to help pets reach the bed.
A new navy color is available for the PetSafe Happy Ride Booster Seat, which features a polyester oxford shell and soft fleece liner that allows your dog to see out of the window during car rides. PetSafe® is also adding a navy option for its Happy Ride Dog Safety Seat, offering a sturdy, rigid frame for car rides.
The company is introducing a gray color for two additional travel products: the PetSafe Happy Ride Cargo Liner, which keeps your cargo area clean from dog hair and muddy paws; and the PetSafe Happy Ride Bucket Seat Cover, which protects your car seat from similar pet travel issues.
