Pets need a holiday just like the rest of us, and with so many pet friendly travel experiences on offer, you’d be mad to leave them behind. Before you hit the road, make sure you’re fully prepared with all your travel essentials – plus a few little luxuries.
From pet travel beds and bowls, to sleeping bags and carriers, here’s some of our favourite stylish travel accessories for pets on the move.
Trust the folks at Alessi to come up with this clever little contraption. Designed by Miriam Mirri, the PetNic is a nifty organiser for pets that has space for all your bits and bobs. The two trays on top can be used to serve food and water, with room underneath to store toys, leads, poo bags, water bottles and pretty much anything else your hound might need while you’re on the go.
