Think packing’s a pain? It’s hard for people—and even more of a drag for pets (paws weren’t made for closing zippers!). So I sought out three essential pieces to pack, whether you're headed for a walk in the park or a sprint through the airport.
1. The Ruffwear Bivy Cinch bowl closes and collapses for a quick bite and storing uneaten kibbles.
2. Even Fido can get sick, so be well prepared with this Deluxe Pet First Aid Kit.
3. Last but not least, make sure your small dog gets his share of shut-eye in this Sleepypod mobile bed—for a bark-free transition from the car to the hotel suite. And when your friend's done napping, it makes a great carrier for toys, treats, leashes, you name it.
