Portland, Maine (June 2006) – Inspired by get-away weekends, treks to the mountains, sailing excursions, vacations at the camp and days at the beach, Planet Dog has added new Double-Tuff Everywear(TM) Collars and Leashes and a sassier look to their travel line. Planet Dog is a socially- responsible and award-winning designer, manufacturer and retailer that offers dogs on the go classic durability and contemporary style.
Dogs won't want to hit the road without Planet Dog's new Everywear Collars and Leashes. These essential "all-purpose" accessories are fast-drying, strong and beautiful. They come in four collar sizes and two leash sizes making them suitable for every breed.
The new adjustable Everywear Collars can be worn swimming, romping and sleeping. They combine contemporary design in woven patterns and fashion-forward colors with the proven strength of double-tuff tubular synthetic webbing. Small versions have light plastic hardware (perfect for smaller dogs), and the “big dog” sizes have rugged stainless steel hardware.
The Everywear Leashes feature soft handles wrapped in a moisture wicking technical grip to keep human hands dry and comfy and are available in Planet Dog's unique five foot length. Fun new block and amoeba patterns in pink, red and orange and blue, green and purple give dogs a stylish new look.
Planet Dog's Travel line has always provided the right mix of durable poly-canvas bowls and bags that are ideal for every type of canine adventure. The extraordinarily light, foldable, crushable and waterproof line, which now features new colorful striped patterns, is designed for easy transport and storage.
The Weekender Feedbag is modeled after a paddling dry bag and keeps up to 30 cups of kibble fresh and handy. The feather-light Travel Food & Water Bowl gives dogs a means to feed and quench their thirst no matter where they are. Available in two sizes (small holds 1.5 quarts and large 2.25 quarts), the bowls fit in backpacks, beach bags and glove compartments. Both the Weekender Feedbag and Travel Food & Water Bowl are offered in three solid colors (red, blue and green) and two new striped patterns (pink and blue). The linings are now being made from PU, an eco-friendlier material than PVC.
The PDOG Travel Towel is made from 100% recycled wood chips and perfect for post-bath, post-swim or post-walk in the rain. This super-duper, fast-drying eco-friendly towel absorbs over 10 times its weight.
Planet Dog's products are socially responsible, too. A percentage of every Planet Dog purchase goes directly to the Planet Dog Foundation (PDF) to promote and celebrate programs in which dogs serve and support their best friends. For more information, please visit www.planetdogfoundation.org.
