Traveling with a puppy is challenging. We haven’t taken a car ride longer than 45 minutes with him, but he gets really excited during the first five minutes. If we put him in one of our laps, he wants to lick the windows and watch the world pass him by. If we put him in the crate, he’ll whine a little bit and stare at us until he falls asleep. The crate is winning out so far, but I want to look into other solutions as we start extending our trips. Kurgo is a company built to solve my problem. They are based in Salisbury, MA, and they manufacture and sell “high-quality pet travel products.” While many pets love the end result of travel, the process can be stressful. Kurgo’s products are designed to help your furry friend get from point A to B safely and comfortably.
I have a friend who has a friend that started flying only on private jets so that he could take his dog with him everywhere he went. People will spend big money to travel with their four-legged companions. That’s why Kurgo is yet another Inc. 5000 company. Over the past three years they’ve doubled their revenue to $5.8 million. I guess a lot of people have the same concerns about traveling with their dogs that I have. (I’m guessing these are not the same people who drive with a dog on their lap.) Most people can’t afford NetJets, but spending a few hundred bucks to outfit your car for total pet comfort is pretty common these days. If you want to help make it even more common, visit Kurgo’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Marketing Programs Specialist, and it looks like it could be a great fit for a recent grad.
