TIPS FOR YOUR DOG…FROM LUKE
I worked like a dog when we were testing various Pup To Go designs. “Let’s bring Luke here, let’s bring Luke there.” (Nice work if you can get it, eh?) Here are a few things I learned:
I like to take breaks at least every hour. And not just bathroom breaks either, but stretching, walking and, most important, sniffing breaks too. I like to catch up on who's been walking around the neighborhood.
- Now with my Pup To Go I get to check out some of the most popular – and crowded – places: Times Square, flea markets, Bergdorf’s on a Saturday. I really love all the action and excitement, it's all so new to me. But other dogs might not like crowds. In new situations, stay in tune to how secure your dog is feeling.
- Don't be fooled by dogs who drink from puddles, they are just curious about their reflection..."who is that dog that looks just like me"? When dogs are thirsty there's nothing we like more than clean, fresh water. Please make sure you either bring or have access to plenty of fresh water for your dog. Hint: I have become friends with a lot of people who own delis and restaurants in the neighborhood (you probably will too) and they're always good for a drink if I need one.
- You'll love the extra attention and head rubs you'll get while going around in your Pup To Go. But there are sacrifices, too. Like always having to look your cutest since you'll be meeting so many new people -- face to face. There's no more going out with bed head when you're five feet off the ground.
TIPS FOR YOU…FROM LUKE’S OWNERS
The best tip we can pass along is to do what you always do -- use your own good judgment while enjoying being out and about with your dog. Here are a few more things to consider:
- Pup To Go is not meant to replace walking and exercising your dog. All dogs need exercise and plenty of it.
- Do not use the Pup To Go legs out front carrier with dogs that weigh over 25 lbs.
- Pup To Go is intended for short-term use only. Please make sure your dog walks and stretches at least once every hour.
- As with any new activity that requires physical exertion, you should first consult your physician. Pup To go may cause the owner to incur back problems if the product is not used properly, so please consult your physician if you believe the Pup To Go carrier may hurt your back. If you already have back problems, do not use the Pup To Go carrier.
- Do not carry a child, a cat or any other animal besides a dog in your Pup To Go.
- You should never jog, run, play sports or engage in any other strenuous activity while wearing an occupied Pup To Go. Also, it is not safe to drive a vehicle or ride a bike while wearing your Pup To Go.
- Do not carry sharp objects or hot beverages/food while carrying your dog in your Pup To Go.
