Make a Suitcase Travel Feeding Set for Your Pet

Pets love traveling, and many people just wouldn’t think about traveling without their best friend, but one thing that can be a big hassle when traveling with pets is feeding time. Having to get out the food, bowl, water, another bowl – then cleaning up the mess – can be a real bummer. But, Fido has to eat, right? There’s an easier way to tend to your pet’s needs while traveling if you make a feeding set that’s perfect for short walks or extended vacations.

A small suitcase, travel bag, or overnight bag is just the ticket for making the travel set for pets. It’ll hold the bowls, food and water, but more than that, it will give you the convenience you need while on the road with your pet.

A round, hard-back suitcase is ideal for the travel set, but you can also work with rectangular or square cases. The round ones are best since most dog dishes are of the same shape. If you have a square or rectangular case, you’ll need to purchase dishes of the same shape. If you don’t find them look in the housewares section of your local department store, where they sell plastic bowls of all shapes and sizes. As a matter of fact, it’s best to use this type of plastic dish since they’re not as heavy as ceramic or glass pet bowls. (more…)
