Holidays With Dogs

Safety and quality first from Lintran

These days, more and more of us are opting to holiday with our dogs. With the advent of Pet Passports and WITH THE relaxation of quarantine regulations, safe transportation of dogs has become much more important to dog owners, who are now able to travel further afield than before.

Lintran transit boxes are available for most vehicles and they have a large, standard and de-luxe range. Boxes are light, white and washable, making them ideal for poor travellers and excellent for keeping the vehicle clean. If you have special requirements they can custom-make to your individual needs.

Larger breeds can make use of all the available height and width to fill the vehicle space. Customers can choose a solid or mesh top and optional dividers can be made to separate dogs. Escape hatches to the front of the vehicle are also available if required.

A new addition to the range is the boot flap, which gives additional protection when the dog jumps into the vehicle and protects the floor and bumper from scratching and dirt. The main advantage other than keeping the car clean is it keeps the dogs safe in the vehicle.

Many satisfied customers have contacted the company following a traffic accident to comment that dogs remained safely contained even when the vehicle was badly damaged.

Boxes can be used indoors which can be especially useful for training pups or if away on holiday, or if the dog is ill and needs to be confined.

Also available are excellent quality thermo-insulated purpose-built dog trailers. These are well ventilated with electric fans plus additional vents in sides and doors. Extra storage space can be provided in a lift-up store roof or useful front storage box. Lintran offers trailers in two compartments upwards, with most popular models being a three or four berth.

Each compartment could hold two medium-sized dogs.

Trailers have excellent suspension and are easy to tow. A five compartment model is shown in the picture, with room for 10 medium-sized dogs. Larger models can be ordered to suit requirements.

Lintran’s full range of equipment includes: non-spill bowls, tailgates, dog cages, sky kennels, dog guards, boot liners, baths, seat covers, and a good range of training equipment and Gundog and training videos.
