I came across this press release today, and like most pet press releases they are mostly set up for key words and the use of the net to help their searches - we all do it and this is why I rarely post press releases on our blog. However, this one is great as it really focuses on the pet travel market and the overlooked aspect of ‘pet seat belts’ and the need for all of us to think of them as such! If you are driving with your pets, you know that many times you hit those breaks and your dog slams his nose into the back seat or the dashboard… now imagine if it was an accident, your dog - just like humans - will fly out of that windshield!
NEW YORK—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Zoombak LLC (www.zoombak.com), a Liberty Media (NASDAQ: LCAPA) company, today joined the leading automotive pet safety experts from Bark Buckle UP (www.barkbuckleup.com) at the New York International Auto Show to promote safe and responsible pet ownership and highlight the latest in pet travel safety products.
Bark Buckle UPs pet safety program is traveling nationally to teach and promote pet safety in automobiles. Christina Selter, Bark Buckle UPҒs founder, is a recognized pet travel safety expert and a regular guest at international auto shows, pet industry events and has appeared in numerous TV and radio interviews. Supported by fire and police personnel, Bark Buckle UP is committed to saving pets lives through safety education programs in and around automobiles.
ғBark Buckle UPs mission is to educate the public and all ґpet parents about the importance of safely securing their pets when traveling. Vehicle seat belts have saved the lives of countless occupants and properly restraining our pets provides them with many of the same benefits: it protects them in case of collision, keeps them from distracting the driver, and prevents them from escaping the vehicle and becoming lost,Ҕ said Christina Selter, founder of Bark Buckle UP. I wish to thank Zoombak for its efforts to keep our pets safe with its advanced GPS dog locator and help spread the message about pet safety.Ӕ
