Have Tail Will Travel

A harness is the perfect way to keep your pet secured while driving

Car Trip
Loading up the family car and hitting the road is great for a weekend trip but it can be very taxing on your pet. Safety, comes first in car travel so make sure to invest in a car harness or hammock for your dog. Smaller dogs can fit into seat belt harnesses, like the Kurgo Travel Harness. This safe and tug proof harness keeps your dog connected to a seatbelt to protect against shortstops or sharp turns. For bigger dogs we recommend a seat hammock like the Kurgo Khaki Hammock. These hammocks allow for big dogs to stretch out and prevents them from falling into spaces between seat rows.

Airplane and Train
While car trips are always easier on animals, sometimes you just have to fly. It is important to remember when traveling by air or rail that pets need space and a constant supply of water. Carriers need to be large enough so that your pet can comfortably sit, stand, and turn around throughout the trip. Smaller animals like cats and small dogs will be allowed to slip underneath your seat. For under the seat we recommend a mesh carrier like the One For Pets Carriers- Cozy Carrier. Bigger dogs will be put in the cargo area of most planes and trains, allowing for much larger crates. Each airline has individual requirements, but we recommend the Vari Kennel 700 by Petmate for larger animals.

No matter how you get to your destination, it is important to call ahead to check on your hotel or locations pet policy. Also check with your airline, rental car provider, or railroad for their complete pet policy. Keep your pet safe and secure while traveling, so the entire family can enjoy a season full of adventure and fun. To find a Petvalu store near you visit. www.petvalu.com.

We Can Play “Chopped” Too

Here at Breslow Partners, we like to think like the chefs on the Food Network’s hit show Chopped. After a busy week and forgetting to go grocery shopping, one of our associates decided take some of the random ingredients sitting patiently in the refrigerator to create a simple meal yet appetizing meal. Her growling stomach made her want to make a meal in 30 minutes or less.

Shuffling back and forth from the pantry to the refrigerator, she threw the random ingredients on the counter. Soy butter, spinach, mushrooms, half an onion, a cup of rotelle pasta, lemons, and garlic presented in front of her as the “A-ha” moment suddenly appeared. What did she create in under 30 minutes? Voila: rotelle pasta in a lemon-butter sauce with sautéed onions, mushrooms, and spinach with a pinch of thyme. Not bad for a college student on a budget! Do you like to play Chopped too?
