Hi Team

Please find my new product suggestion:

WHAT: Highlights & functions

A roll up travel dog bed / mat for your adventures and expeditions. It is important our canine friends are comfortable when out on our adventures. The mat will ideally be foldable or roll up and then be buckle or Velcro locked with molle attachments to be carried on the persons backpack.
It should include a lightweight memory foam for comfort (Europe or US sourced) and a waterproof outer covering to avoid dampness and easy clean.
Large grab handle.

-WHY: Specific use & purposes

To ensure the comfort of our best friends when out adventuring. When stopping to take a break in the wilderness, camping over night or visiting your local pub, you often see our doggie friends lying on the ground which is bad for their joints and most likely uncomfortable. The purpose of this product will be an easy to carry and comfortable travel bed or mat for your dog that provides a warm and soft area to sleep or rest on when taking a well earned break.


-HOW: How you were inspired

The inspiration came from one chance meeting and general adventures.

Chance meeting: phoebe (our Samoyed), my wife and myself stopped at a lovely mountain restaurant/bar while travelling in Scotland. The bar was dog friendly which was great and we took a seat at one of the tables outdoors as it was a lovely day. Unfortunately for phoebe there was only the hard ground which looked and I am sure is very uncomfortable. While there another dog owner took a seat outside and with her she had a huge square of carpet which she advised she dragged about everywhere to ensure her dogs comfort however she advised it was not the easiest to carry and not very nice to look at. That got us thinking.

General adventures: we travel all over Scotland, staying at air B and B’s, camping, hotels etc. The comfort of phoebe is paramount and as a result we bring her bed with us everywhere. Unfortunately her bed is big, I mean really big and you can’t carry it when in the wildness and it also takes up so much room in our car.

Both these examples led us to this point where we felt a comfortable, durable safe and easy to carry bed or mat is really needed for all our outings.

-WHAT: Proposed product name

Stargazer
wilderness mat
Crash mat
Wolf den travel bed
Open to suggestions?


-WHAT: Brief outline/description of appearance

Most likely rectangular mat, around 1 to 2 inches deep. The sides will be slightly raised and molle attachments will be on the rear. The outer cover will be a waterproof material. Range of sizes.

-WHAT: Color options

Grey, black, navy blue, burnt orange, potentially some camo options, open to suggestions?

-WHAT: Material

Foam, memory foam interior, waterproof outer, non toxic and durable, not yet decided on this. It is key the materials are durable, lightweight, comfortable but safe. Non toxic, made with premium materials not treated with harsh chemicals.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks
