When we purchased some Outward Hound products (a Kyjen company) for Pet Auto Safety.com and for our new site eDogLifeJacket (coming soon), I also ordered an extra item for Maya and Pierson. That was the Invincible Gecko (from Kyjen), which I read about on Gizmo’s Terrier Torrent blog.

Dog Maya Invincibles Gecko Toy

You can’t hear it, but Maya is squeaking away at her dog toy!

Pierson Kyjen Invincibles Gecko Dog Toy

Pierson is squeaking away at his new Kyjen dog toy too.

Invincibles Gecko Dog Toy and Maya

Maya gets into all sorts of wierd positions when she plays with her dog toys.

Maya is a chewer so I’m always excited about trying out dog toys that say they are invincible. I must say, this gecko dog toy is holding up very well. Not only has she not torn it to bits, but the squeaker still works too. Oftentimes, when squeakers in dog toys get a hole punctured in it from sharp doggy teeth, it stops working. But not this squeaker! Both the toy and its stuffings are invincible!!!

We didn’t buy any invincible gecko’s for resale on our Pet Auto Safety.com website. But you can get them on Amazon. Stop by our Amazon a-store for yours.

To check out a video I did of me drawing Mos the dog, visit my AmericanDogBlog.wordpress.com blog. Also, for more great Wordless Wednesday pet photos, check out the blog hop below:

Do you know Maya and Pierson? The beautiful yellow Labrador pictured at the top of this blog isn’t just some random puppy. That is my Maya! She’s been pictured on this blog a number of times, along with my Australian Shepherd mix Pierson. They aren’t just models for pet auto safety products, they have other talents too. Check out some non-travel pet photos of them below:

Duncan’s dad shared a wonderful photo of Duncan wearing his new Bergan dog car harness. Don’t you just love that sweet face! And what a beautiful color Duncan’s coat is.

Duncan Bergan Dog Car Harness

Duncan is ready to ride in his new Bergan dog car harness.

Duncan’s owner had this to say, “We drove 910 miles on Friday and he was great.  He did manage to slip out of the front of the harness twice but I don’t think I had it tight enough.”

Yes, that can happen. Unfortunately, the tighter you make the harness, the more likely a dog will try to get out of it. And if you make it too tight, the dog could hurt himself trying to get out of it. Duncan’s owner believes Duncan will not try to get out of it once he gets used to it. That’s right. It just takes a little practice.

Thank you, Duncan’s dad for sharing!!! 🙂

Our contest winner for the month of April has shared a photo of her Dachshund dog Daffy with her new prize.

Daffy the Dachshund in the Thundershirt

Daffy the Dachshund in her new Thundershirt!

Isn’t Daffy absolutely adorable!?! I just love that look on her face. It’s like she’s saying, “You seriously expect me to wear this… in public?” LOL!

The prize was actually a Bergan pet car barrier, but we saw in the comments that Daffy’s mom Amy made and thought perhaps she could use another prize instead. In Amy’s comments, she said her dogs rode in crates and that they bark and whine in the car. Since they are already riding safely in crates and can’t get to the front seats, what use is a pet car barrier? Perhaps the Thundershirt will help keep her dogs calm and quiet when they ride in the car.

Important note:  Our winner Amy did not ask us to exchange the prize. It was an offer that we made. In general, the prize in the contest is the one that is given away. It is solely at our discretion to offer an exchange for another product of comparable value. This month’s contest giveaway will likely be a dog car harness. If there is a different prize that you’d like to win, please let us know in comments here. We will be hosting the giveaway soon, so stop by again soon! 🙂

I want to share a short tale about a cute GoldenDoodle named Spud. Spud’s mom had purchased a dog car harness from another company and had a scary experience with it. The tether broke when she stopped suddenly. Poor Spud could have been hurt. Obviously, Spud needed a better pet seat belt so we sent Spud’s mom the safety tested Bergan brand. Here is the photo she took of Spud wearing it. Isn’t he adorable!

Spud Doodle and Bergan Dog Car Harness

Spud is a regular at www.DoodleKisses.com. Here is a direct link to the article that Spud’s mom wrote on Doodle Kisses about her pet seat belt experience – DoodleKisses.

Here is Spud running around with a ball. I just love how cute his ears are when they’re airborne like that.

Spud GoldenDoodle Running with Ball

Spud’s floppy ears are so cute!

Not all dog car harness brands are created equally. A few have not even had testing. For tested brands, consider the Bergan brand like the one Spud is wearing. Also consider PetBuckle, Kurgo Tru-Fit with enhanced strength, and the Roadie Ruff Rider. We have these available on the Dog Seat Belts page of our retail site. Spud’s new Bergan harness and tether has been safety tested to withstand 2,500 pounds of force.

Dawn with the Notes from Dawn blog has done a review for the Bergan dog seat belt. The Bergan harness was tried on Bobo, a dog in training for Canine Angels. Canine Angels is a great nonprofit organization that rescues dogs from shelters, then trains them to be service dogs for disabled veterans. You must go check out their site and donate! But first, check out these great photos of the handsome Bobo wearing his Bergan dog seat belt:

Bobo is in training to be a service dog. Look at how nicely he holds the Bergan box.

Read the full review at the Notes from Dawn blog. My name is Dawn too, so don’t be confused. This Dawn is a different person and she lives in South Carolina.

Find out more about the great work that Canine Angels does and give them a little donation too.

I love my Maya, but she sure can be a handful. ❤

Maya Angel Devil

My, oh my, oh Maya. I love Maya’s zest for life. And it really shows when she rides in the car. It can be very distracting so I make sure she wears a dog seatbelt. If your dog is crazy, or even nervous, in the car, visit our post from March 8th so you can enter to win a bottle of Travel Calm… and see a video of my crazy Labrador in the car. Also, be sure to check out the Wordless Wednesday blog hop below.

We made a friend in Poland and helped him get connected with the Bergan dog car harness. Now dogs in Poland can wear this great product and ride safer in the car! Our friend Adam founded the website is www.BioSante.pl for BioSante Veterinary Solutions in New Tomyśl, Poland. He also has a facebook page – HERE.

Adam’s site promotes pet safety. He wants to make it safer for pets to travel in Poland and really liked the Bergan and Kurgo products. Bergan products are currently available on his site, and hopefully Kurgo ones will be coming soon. Here are some photos of some of his dog customers in Poland wearing the Bergan dog car harness:
