Traveling with our pets for the holidays is a burden of  L O V E and the extra work ensures that you have your furperson or peeps to celebrate all the seasons joys with you and your family.

“Safety starts on the way to the airport. To ensure ultimate safety, comfort and convenience for two and four-legged passengers, be sure to plan, pack and follow the rules”, said Pet Safety Lady aka Christina Selter 

During a recent demo Christina and her pack rolled into town with a great program for the Pup Set and she is pictured below using a Sturdi Products bag to keep her traveling crew well protected.

FUR FACTS: Nearly 2.9 million passengers will pass through LAX from Friday December 17 through January 2nd 2011 and some of those nearly 3 million passengers will have pets.

The number #1 tip is to : BE EARLY and I might add be CALM so that your fluffy people don't pick up on your aniexty.  Maybe throw a little Bachs Remedy in your tea and rub on the gums of your pets for extra tranquility in the airport.
