We are very happy to welcome a new sponsor here on DogTipper: Kurgo!
As you know, we are big, big believers in safely securing your dog in the car, whether you’re out running errands, taking a day trip, or off on the trip of a lifetime. Both Irie and Tiki wear Kurgo harnesses any time they’re in the car. These are harnesses that we purchased shortly after we adopted Irie and Tiki, once we researched the different options.
The harnesses not only give us peace of mind in case of an accident, a sudden stop, or if a door should suddenly come open in transit–but harnesses also ensure that we don’t have to worry about one of the dogs suddenly jumping from the car when the door’s opened upon arrival. (Last year when I spoke about pet travel at BarkWorld, several attendees had just that concern of their dogs jumping out before they could be properly leashed. Securing your dog in the car, whether by a harnesses and seat belt or a booster seat for little dogs, means that your dog will be safely in place when you arrive and open the door to leash him and remove him from the car safely.)
As you know, we’re always looking for good value in pet products. We’ve had our Kurgo harnesses several years and they’re showing no signs of wear (in spite of very frequent use while we were researching our DogTipper’s Texas with Dogs guidebook last year!) ALL Kurgo products are covered by a lifetime warranty covering any manufacturing defects; if the product starts to wear out (or if a chewing dog helps it along its way), you can even return it for repair or replacement for a nominal fee.
Our Kind of Company
We’re also excited about this partnership because we love to support USA-based, family-owned businesses. Founded by brothers Kitter Spater and Gordie Spater, Kurgo is definitely a business built by dog lovers, for dog lovers. I’ve interviewed Gordie Spater several times on DOG TRAVEL EXPERTS; his love for dogs really comes across and it’s easy to see that he turned this love of dogs into his life’s work.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be bringing you more about different Kurgo products (including all the great winter coats that Kurgo offers!) and ways to get ready for spring getaways with your dog. And, of course, you know how much we love giveaways so stay tuned for great giveaways and savings opportunities, too!
Disclosure: Kurgo is a sponsor of DogTippper.com. We only partner with companies whose products we use with our own dogs.
