Trends & Products: Pet Carriers

It’s not unusual to see people pushing a stroller while walking along a sidewalk. And nowadays, nobody does a double take if the stroller were to contain the person’s fur baby.

Carriers and portable kennels designed for dogs, cats and other small animals come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles. And many of these travel products have been designed with air travel in mind. In addition, thanks to companies like King’s Cages and A&E Cage Co., birds can also leave the house with their owners.

That’s the state of pet ownership in 2020. Gone are the days when people leave their pets at home while we head out for a day trip or to go shopping. And thanks to manufacturers, today’s carriers and portable kennels are technologically advanced to the point where these products are highly durable, ultra comfortable and extremely easy to use for putting in and taking out the pet. And the brands that manufacture these travel products have designed them to be safe for the companion animal.

It’s important for consumers to know that portable cages, carriers and travel kennels are not just for pleasure trips, as every pet parent should have these products as part of his or her family’s emergency kit. Retailers would be wise to educate their customers on how these travel products should be treated as a pet’s safe space for better preparedness in case of an emergency, as it can make all the difference if one should occur.
