Local London pet travel startup Wag N Go LLC has announced a Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign for their brand new travel bag: Wag N Go, a dog travel kit that simplifies the entire traveling experience, eliminating the need to carry a bulky bag with all your doggie essentials while away from home, including most importantly a sleeping blanket big enough for a travelling Labrador.
It’s estimated that over 51% of pet owners travel with their pets. Dogs being the leader of the pack when it comes to vacation time with their owner. In fact dogs are going all over the place these days, if it’s not a weekend getaway at the cottage, it’s a day at doggie day care, a visit to a doggie hotel and spa, or maybe a day at the office. Wag N Go is working towards making it easy to bring along your dog’s essential in a two compartment slim-line bag.
As a dog owner who travels with her dog Maggie, My number one priority is my pet’s safety and comfort. Currently gathering up all your dog’s essentials for a road trip or a visit to grandma’s consisted of a large Ikea like bag stuffed with all the things that will keep your dog happy. It was bulky and awkward to carry. The Wag N Go dog travel bag allows me to pack up to 7 cups of kibble, treats, bowl, papers, poo bags and toys and the all-important sleeping blanket.
The founder of Wag N Go LTD is an avid dog lover and traveler herself, and came up with the idea while traveling the world with her dog Maggie “It just makes sense,” said Trina Cooper “I was surprised that I couldn’t find something that was stylish yet function and carried my dog’s essential while on the road. You know how it is...you pack a small weekend bag for yourself and when you start packing you dogs things, it start feel like you’re moving house. – Wag N Go solves that with it two compartment design containing fresh seal containers for food at the base and the all-important sleeping blanket in the drawstring top. Vets agree, a dog having its own sleeping blanket helps them feel more secure and comfortable by reminding a dog of home. Perfect if you’re dropping your dog off with the pet-sitter."
Wag N Go is the same size and shape as a slim-line ruck sack, and therefore it can easily be tossed over your shoulder for easy carrying via the shoulder strap. The stretchy mess pockets on the outside can carry extras, like paperwork, toys or even your personal things such as your iphone, and there is even a poo bag holder and dispenser pocket for quick pickups. Wag N Go can also be used if you plan to take your dog out for the day, or at the office “It really is an easy way to travel with your pet”, says Jean Barry, an avid supporter of the Wag N Go travel bag. “We really think this can help people and dogs alike who are on the go and away from home.”
Wag N Go is constructed out of strong Nylon material. It measures 45 x 18 x 18 cm and only weighs a little over a kilo.
Wag N Go is scheduled to start shipping in March 2014.
