Large budget gifts for dog owners who travel

#1 Pet supplies bag

People who travel with their furry friends have to pack stuff for both themselves and their dogs.

And surely, they can try to squeeze that into one bag. But it’s hard to organize all that in one bag. And that’s where this bag from PetAmi comes in.

It’s specifically designed for traveling dog owners, with special compartments that fit food containers and other stuff you need for your dog. Plus it has an extra strap at the back, so it can easily be attached to the collapsible handle of a suitcase.


#2 Car seat covers for dog owners

This is one of the best gifts for dog owners who travel by car. Because no matter how much they love their dog, nobody loves having dog hair everywhere, especially not in your car. But with this seat by Furryfection that’s a thing of the past.

The seat is specifically designed to protect a car from getting covered by hair. It’s machine washable, waterproof, and there is a special opening for the seatbelt, so they can still transport their doggo safely. (Check out #3 and #14 for more safety gifts for people who often take their dog in a car).


#3 Mobile pet bed for small dogs

Sleepypod

This is another great tool for people who often take their dog in a car, the portable sleepypod.

The sleepypod is quite a robust bag that you can also safely attach to a seatbelt. It’s perfect for smaller dogs, though it’s not the easiest bag to carry. If you are looking for a backpack to carry a dog, check out the next gift!


#4 Dog carrier backpack

This backpack is another great gift for people with a small dog. It’s especially great for people who love to go for long walks or hikes, but whose tiny pals can’t keep up with them.

They can simply put their dog in the backpack and carry them the rest of the way.

But if the recipient owns a larger dog, a backpack might not be the most practical gift. For those, check out gift #9.


#5 GPS tracker

It’s every dog owner’s biggest nightmare; to lose their best friend.

So gift them the peace of mind of always knowing their dog’s location with this GPS tracker!

#6 GoPro fetch harness

This Pet Rover stroller is an aweomse gift idea for people who have a large dog and who love to go on long hikes or walks.

If their dog gets tires, they can simply carry him or her around in this stroller!

There is one thing to keep in mind though.

This stroller is really built for taking your dog for a walk, not a run. The two front wheels don’t turn fast enough for dog owners to run safely with it.


#10 Backpacks for dogs

This super cool backpack for dogs to wear is perfect for doggos who often go on hikes with their owners.

That way, the dog can also bring some things along, so the owner doesn’t need to carry all the weight.

Just as humans, doggies need to keep their body temperatures within a certain range. And when they’re traveling to hot places, they may need a little extra help with that.

And that’s when this cooling vest comes in.

It’s not just a cool vest, but it will also help the dog to cool down. It needs to be soaked in water before it’s put on the dog, and through a 3-layered system the cold water will reach the dog and cool him down.

Besides that, it’s also UV protective, to protect the dog from sunburns (yes, dogs can get sunburned too!).


#13 Pet first aid kit
