Is Your Dog-Friendly Car Ready for Trade-In?

A couple of years ago, we reviewed the Kurgo Cargo Cape. Like car seat covers, this cover is made specifically to protect the cargo area of your vehicle from fur, paw prints, and whatever else your travels throw at it! Since our review, our Jeep traveled many miles with Irie and Tiki. It made numerous […]

New Carrier Allows You to Protect, Comfort Your Pet!

Do you have a small dog (or cat) who travels in a carrier? Our Irie and Tiki are far too large for carriers–but we sure have a lot of experience with carriers with our cats. As readers of our CatTipper site know, this summer our cat Lucky became very ill with bladder stones; we were […]

Review: Kurgo Loft Duvet Cover

Last month, we headed to the beach for a few days as we worked on a revision of one of our guidebooks. We made our home base in Port Aransas, a small community on Mustang Island. As we all know, the beach means sand — and that sand gets just about everywhere, in spite of […]

Kurgo Tru-Fit Smart Harness

As our regular readers know, both Irie and Tiki have been wearing Kurgo harnesses for years. Our trusty harnesses have put in many miles with us. Just this week, we stepped up to an upgraded car safety dog harness: the Kurgo Tru-Fit Smart Harness. Like our previous harnesses, these are designed to be comfortable, with […]

Gift Ideas for Pet Travelers

As you know, we recently released the premiere issue of DogTipper Magazine, a 40-page publication with articles and an extensive gift guide–including a guide for dog travelers (above)! We wanted to share some of our top choices for the dog travelers, above, and here’s a list of links where you can find each of these […]

Review: Solvit Deluxe XL Telescoping Pet Ramp

Today we took our first post-surgery day trip with Irie, thanks to the Solvit Deluxe XL Telescoping Pet Ramp! As our regular readers know, three weeks ago today Irie had TPLO surgery for a torn ACL. For two weeks, she was on extremely limited activity, just going outside on leash to potty. Last week at […]

Review: Kurgo Cargo Cape

We love traveling with Irie and Tiki. In the summer, we try to take them swimming at least once a week. We love to head to the state parks and the constant level lakes (especially great during our ongoing drought) and let the swim. Of course, swimming dogs means muddy paws and wet dogs upon […]

Review: #Kurgo Collaps-a-Bowl

Just last week, we decided to take the Kurgo Collaps-a-Bowl for a test drive on one of our day trips. Along with Irie and Tiki, we headed to our favorite dog-friendly Texas state park: Inks Lake State Park. Like its name suggests, this bowl collapses for easy storage (and even has a hole in the […]

Review: Kurgo Wander Pail

The weather has turned lovely here in Texas so we’re taking advantage of this temperate time to hit the road with Irie and Tiki. (We know all too well the hot weather that lies ahead in a few weeks!) This past week we headed to Inks Lake State Park, a beautiful constant level lake that’s […]

Review: #Kurgo Portsmouth Walking Coat

As our regular readers know, we live in Texas so our dogs usually don’t have a need for a heavy coat. While we don’t have the extreme cold of so many locations, winters here can be damp, with drizzly days and heavy fog on some morning walks. And spring (which is already beginning here) brings […]
