It is easy to get carried away in the excitement of shopping for Kayaks for Pets. You may be looking for kayaks for dogs. You may want something with wheels, a kayak that you can carry along, or one that can carry your pet. You may be concerned about durability, and want to know whether you will need to invest in new parts for the kayak.
Kayaks for pets come in all sizes and shapes. Most are tall and narrow for long journeys, while others are narrow, to allow for pets who tend to jump up and down in the water. For a wheelchair or car seat cover, you may have to purchase a waterproof kayak.
Kayaks for pets come in a variety of materials. Here are some of the most common materials.
Leather – Leather is durable and soft, but also quite costly. It is also hard to clean. There are specially treated leathers available, but they are not usually as comfortable as genuine leather. If you have dogs who are prone to itching, they may develop skin problems if you use leather. They may have an allergic reaction to the leather material.
Nylon – Nylon is flexible but not as soft as leather. It is also very durable and can handle rough weather. It is less expensive than leather. Nylon is easier to clean than leather, but not as comfortable as it is harder to clean.
Plastic – Plastic is very durable and more comfortable than leather. It is also resistant to scratching, especially for dogs with sensitive skin. Plastic is usually sturdier than leather, which makes it better for traveling and outdoor adventures.
Travel Bags – Travel bags come in many shapes and sizes. You may want a small travel bag that can carry a paddle or some food for your dog. You may want a larger bag for more room, such as a travel trailer that can hold snacks and clothes.
Soft Fabric – Soft fabric is great for protecting your dog’s skin. It is also easy to clean, so you can wash it when it gets dirty, rather than having to wear a dog flea collar.
Hard Plastic – Hard plastic can be scratched, because it is not as soft as other materials. It can also get smelly, because of the residue that comes from a flea.
Fabric – Fabric is soft, and the fabric itself is gentle on your dog’s skin. However, it is also easily damaged, particularly if your dog jumps up and down in the water. Even the most resilient fabric will tear.
Personalization – You can add text or graphics to a fabric kayak, which makes your pet’s comfort even better. You can get dog-specific kayaks, or just get a basic one that you can use on a regular kayak.
