Houston, Texas (PRWEB) December 31, 2012

Funny Fur, a leading online and Houston luxury pet boutique, is celebrating National Pet Travel Safety Day on January 2nd and all month long with a sale on pet car safety products, travel pet accessories and travel pet carriers. With hopes to raise public awareness of the need for pet travel safety, Funny Fur will be showcasing travel products and tips throughout January on social media sites Twitter, Facebook, and on their blog, La La Doggy.

“Many pets are severely injured or perish in car accidents because owners are unaware of the potential dangers of an unsecured pet or they just think they are careful drivers and dismiss the thought of getting into a car accident. But accidents happen everyday and many times it’s the fault of another careless driver.” Says Karen Clark, Funny Fur Associate. “The only thing to do is protect yourself, your family and your pets from potential injury as well as possible. Investing in a pet travel safety product is investing in your pet’s life.”

There are many pet products available that can prevent car-related injuries. Special dog harnesses with seatbelt attachments or backseat tethers are great for large dogs. They allow them to be safe and secure, while offering pets the space and comfort they need on car trips. Options for small dogs include a secured pet crate or car booster seats with safety tethers. Many travel pet carriers also convert into car seats with seat belt attachments. Funny Fur also offers a product called the Backseat Barrier, which prevents pets from jumping into the front of the car and distracting the driver, and should an accident occur, prevents them from hitting or going through the windshield. As an added bonus, many car safety products also act as a seat cover, protecting your car’s interior against dirt, pet hair and damage.

Learn about pet safety while traveling this January with Funny Fur. Log onto their website and social media sites for product info, travel tips and special discounts on pet travel gear all month long.

There are collars and colorful toys specially made for feline friends, as well as bird food and cage accessories for feathered friends.

These folding zippered carriers, car boosters, and backpack pet carriers are designed to ensure maximum comfort and safety for pets during travel. No longer do pets have to be put in a kennel or left in a car when the family goes on vacations or day trips.

“Pets are really full members of the family,” said Barry. “You wouldn’t leave your child home while you went off on vacation. We’ve done extensive research on carriers that allow owners to bring their furry family members along for the fun.”

Even the indoor pet in your family will need to venture outdoors occasionally during times of cold weather. Take precautions and use the tips below to prepare your dog or cat for winter weather.

For always outdoor pets:

Feed your outside pet more food in the winter months. Animals put on extra body fat in the colder months to produce more body heat.

Your pets’ living quarters should be dry, insulated, and as wind proof as possible without restricting access. Wind chill is a deadly enemy. Newspaper or cardboard make a nice layer of extra insulation.

Keep your pets water from freezing. Your pet still needs water in the winter and if their water is frozen, they might try eating snow or worse, find something that looks to be water called anti-freeze which will surely kill them. Search the internet to find a method that works for you. Don’t use metal bowls that their tongues could stick to.

Check on your pet often. If you see ice or snow sticking to them, make adjustments to give them a warmer and dryer living space. Consider installing a pet door on your garage or storage shed. For you outdoor cat owners, honk your horn before starting that vehicle. Cats will find your car’s engine compartment a nice warm place to sleep.

For the pets that go outside on occasion:

Consider purchasing several items of dog clothing for your pet. Clothes for dogs and cats are becoming more and more popular. Pet clothing stores offer dog shirts, dog sweater, and dog coats to help keep your dog warm. If you have a smaller breed, a collection of cute dog clothes including dog hoodies for winter can be a fashionable and practical investment for your priceless pet.

Extreme cold can lead to frostbite, especially on the shorthair breeds. Check them for symptoms often. If any icy build up is present, give your pet a nice warm bath or use a warm damp cloth to remove the ice. Consider outfitting your pet with booties that will keep those precious paws warm and dry.

Don’t allow them to eat snow. I can contain dangerous objects and/or chemicals.

Use pet clothing, like dog coats or dog sweaters:

Consider purchasing a couple of dog sweaters or dog coats for your pet this winter. Pet clothing is not just for playing dress up with your pet. Dog clothes will help your pet maintain body heat. The large variety of cute dog clothes offered by most pet clothing stores usually include dog shirts, dog or cat bandanas, and designer dog collars, dog leashes, and harnesses. The styles of dog clothes are becoming more trendy and casual. Cute dog clothes with cool screen print and rhinestone designs are becoming more and more popular in the pet clothing industry and with consumers worldwide. Clothes for dogs belonging to the younger generations are also popping up everywhere. With a dual purpose of protecting your pet during cold weather and making them look cute and cool, you really can’t go wrong.

Dogs and cats are actually much tougher than us when it comes to braving the cold, but with very little effort you can make your pet much more comfortable this winter. Use the tips listed above, along with your own, to protect your pet during cold weather. They will love you for it.
