Pierson tends not to get along with other male dogs so I don’t usually take him to pet events. But I took him to the Dogs Got Talent event at The Dog House in Lawrence, KS this past Saturday and he did very well. He did snap at Buster the Golden Retriever mix once but only as a warning and not as an attack. The two came close to playing together later – close but not quite. Pierson gets along better with Roxy the Dachshund who he has met a few times previously. He is not sure what to think of kids. He let the girl pet him a few times, especially if she had treats. But he wasn’t quite sure if he should trust her.

Buster is getting love while Pierson looks on in the background, probably wondering why he is not getting all the attention.

Notice in the above photo that Pierson is wearing some sort of harness. This is the back of her Bergan Pet Car Harness without the tether attached.

I love Wordless Wednesday but it is so difficult not to say a few words. Enjoy other great pet photos in today’s blog hop!

You can keep your dog safe in the car while at the same time making him/her look like a King or Queen with the Queenstown pet car booster seat from Kurgo. Your dog can relax like royalty while you act as his chauffeur!

The blue and brown Queenstown pet car booster seat is the same design as the orange and brown Skybox dog car seat and they are both from Kurgo. Since both these pet car booster seat styles are made by Kurgo, they both have the same safety features and the same lifetime guarantee.

Safety Features:
– Allows your dog to see out the window without allowing him to put his head out the window.
– Allows your dog to be close by without being a distraction to the driver.
– No weight in the seat means airbags will not harm your dog.
– Strong tether included with the dog car booster seat will keep your pet in the seat.
* Do not attach the tether to your dog’s collar. Attach to a vehicle-safe harness such as the Kurgo Tru-Fit dog car harness (also has a lifetime guarantee).

Lifetime Guarantee:
If your dog chews the dog car seat, soils it, or just wears down the material from excessive use, you can get the Queenstown pet car booster seat repaired or replaced for just $10 plus shipping.

This great dog car seat has additional quality features. It is machine washable, collapses for easy storage, and is secured to the seat of your car with relative ease. You know your dog is the real ruler of the house. Protect him while making him feels special at the same!

Wordless Wednesday – What Not to Do

Author: MayaAndPierson

Perhaps a few words on this nearly Wordless Wednesday photo… My Maya is so cute but why the circle with the red line? 1) Don’t leave your dog alone in the car (heat and theft danger), 2) No dogs in the front seat (airbag danger), 3) Don’t let your dog put their head out the window (danger of flying debri), 4) Buckle up your dog (safety concern).

Kurgo makes great pet travel products such as the Wander Pet Car Hammock, the Tru-Fit Smart Dog Car Harness, the Backseat Barrier, and the Backseat Bridge. They are well-made, very useful and safe, and best of all they have a lifetime guarantee. Since we like Kurgo so much, we have decided to expand from our pet auto safety base and have added the Kurgo Wander Back Pack for Dogs.

So what does a back pack for pets have to do with dog car safety?

Pet – This one speaks for itself.

Auto – Your dog has to ride in the car before he can get to his favorite hiking spot to use his new back pack.

Safety – This one is a stretch but the Kurgo Wander Back Pack for Dogs has four reflective strips (two on the top and one on either side) for just in case your dog is hiking in the woods at night.

So mostly the Wander Pack has to do with pet travel. Plus, we just wanted to order them so that our own dogs could use them! In fact, that is our dog Maya in the photo above wearing hers.

Like other Kurgo products, the Wander Back Pack for Dogs has a lifetime guarantee. So if you plan on going on a hiking trip with your dog to Colorado, Missouri, or other great hiking spots, consider a Kurgo Tru-Fit Smart Dog Car Harness and the Kurgo Wander Back Pack for Dogs.

Be sure to check us out next week for another new pet auto safety product. We are adding a bunch of new pet travel products in May.

Any New Posts?

We generally post an article on Saturdays and Tuesdays or Wednesdays. However, due to a family emergency we missed Saturday’s post. We will likely miss the Tuesday and Wednesday post as well.

Pet Auto Safety is a family owned business. So when my mother had a medical emergency which put her in ICU, we rushed off to St. Louis to be there for her. I am home now but will likely be heading back soon. Please forgive the lack of posts this week. We may not be posting much on our FaceBook or Twitter pages either, but feel free to check out our friend at All Things Dog Blog who is currently hosing a pet auto safety giveaway of our products. She is also on Twitter @AllThingsDog.

Instead of us driving to Texas to visit family, my family came here for a visit. One of those family members that came was my soon-to-be-two year old nephew Bennett. Obviously with children and animals you should be observant and cautious. But caution was not needed with my Labrador Maya. Maya is so good and so very patient with children. I’m so proud of her!

Don't allow your dog to sit in your lap when you drive!

These are a couple of drawings I made for Pet Auto Safety. They are cartoon-like but not funny. I’ve been meaning to draw them for some time. Even though I am an artist, I am not a cartoon artist so these scribbled cartoons are not the best. They do, however, give the message I wanted to make. 1) Don’t let your dog sit on your lap when you drive; 2) Dogs can be a distraction if they are not restrained in the car. You can restrain your dog with dog seatbelts, pet booster seats, and even pet car barriers.

Like cell phones, dogs can be a dangerous distraction in the car.
