Lots of Contests on our Pet Auto Safety Blog

February 18, 2013

Blog Paws Winnings 002

Do you like to win prizes? Maya and Pierson sure do. In fact, they recently won some great gifts from Blog Paws!

Maya & Pierson aren’t just all about getting stuff. They like to help give stuff away too. So earlier this month, they convinced me that I should do another giveaway for a free dog car harness. After all, it’s important that dogs ride safe in the car too. They are family. That contest is still open until the end of the month. It was posted on my Pet Auto Safety Blog on February 5th, 2013 and is open until the end of the month.

Another contest just started today on that blog. It is a contest from Subaru and the prize is a $350 Visa gift card (1st place) and a $150 Visa gift card (2nd place). You must check this out! I am ineligible but perhaps one of my doggy friends can win!

How did Maya & Pierson win a gift from Blog Paws? I volunteered to help promote the Super Dog Sunday. This even helped to raise funds for the Petfinder Foundation. Little did I know that when I volunteered that I would be entered into a drawing. It was a great surprise! Another great surprise from volunteering to help Super Dog Sunday is that Maya and Pierson get to try out a new product called Kumfy Koatz. And guess what?!? I also get to give one away!!! So visit my Pet Auto Safety Blog. Find and enter the dog seat belt giveaway contest posted on February 5th, the Subaru gift card contest posted today (February 18th), and keep an eye out for the Kumfy Koatz contest. I will post some photos on Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday. Then I will open the contest entry for the Kumfy Koatz on Friday, February 22nd.

Wow! That’s a lot of stuff. Maya & Pierson wish you luck!

Holiday Traveling with Pets – Packing for the Trip

November 17, 2012

Sephi and Maya asleep in the back seat of the car on one of our road trips to Texas.

Are you going out of town this holiday season? Are you taking your pets with you? Don’t forget all the important things your pet needs for the trip.

– Leash, if your pet is a dog
– Collar with tags (make sure tags are up to date; have tags even if your pet is microchipped)
– Water
– Pet food
– Pet food & water bowls
Pet waste bags for dogs/ litter and litter box for cats
– Pet blanket or bed
– Veterinary information (including vet contact info and vaccine information)
– Pet First Aid Booklet (we have one from Blue Pearl)
– Pet toys (optional)
Dog car harness, pet travel crate, or pet car seat if traveling by car
– Airline approved pet travel crate if traveling by airplane
– Meds (if applicable)

If your pet tends to get nervous during travel or get car sick, ask your vet if there is anything you can give them for the trip. I am trying a product called Travel Calm since Pierson is known to get car sick. I am hoping the Travel calm will also help keep Maya from getting so excitable as she tends to do when she rides in the car.

If your trip is a long one, be sure you pick up your dog’s poo at rest stops or anywhere else you stop. Take plenty of rest stops, especially if you have a hyper pet like my Maya. We are driving from Kansas to Texas this Thanksgiving. Check out our other blog,, for what we are doing to prep for such a long road trip.

Where are you going for the holidays? Is there anything that you bring for your pet that I might have forgotten to list?
