June 29, 2012, 5:24 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Online pet retailer, Bonlays has recently seen a surge in sales for their Sherpa products. This has been connected to a recent survey conducted by travelsupermarket.com, which discovered that two in five of us Brits take our pets on holiday with us. Furthermore, the survey of 2,010 pet owners highlighted that 40% regularly check up on their pets when away.
Talking about the results of the survey, Travel Supermarket’s Bob Atkinson told the Press Association: "We all know that Brits love their pets and this research has found that many pet-owners are happy to admit we actually miss our furry friends more than we miss immediate family and friends when we are away."
Other results the survey showed:
• 13% would rather go on holiday with their pet than their partner
• 10% would actually prefer to go on holiday with their pet rather than their children
• 47% miss their pet(s) more than family members when on holiday
Due to the popular demand of Sherpa designer pet carriers, Bonlays have extended their selection to include the Sherpa Pop Tote Dog Carrier. In the retailers collection of Sherpa products, Bonlays have seen a growing trend for the original deluxe pet carrier, which can suggest that more pet owners are looking for luxury items when transporting their pets.
Rob Doole, Managing Director of Bonlays said: “Sherpa, who work closely with airlines, were the first soft-sided pet carrier to be endorsed by major airlines such as American Airlines and Delta and continue to prevail as the leading source for pets on the go.
“With people wishing to go abroad with their pets over the summer season, we have experienced a great deal of interest in our Sherpa products. Due to the popular demand we have introduced a new product that we hope will be equally as popular with pet owners.”
Bonlays ethos is to care for pets as an important member of the family, ensuring they are always well feed, immaculately groomed and at the height of fashion. Through the popularity of the Sherpa collection, it can be said that this philosophy is shared as many pet owners are looking for luxurious products that will keep their pets in comfort and style.
Bonlays is one of the UK’s leading online pet shops that offers owners a selection of luxury products and designer accessories. Included in the store’s extensive range of quality dog and cat products is the Sherpa pet carrier range, which has proved to be a popular choice among travelling pet owners.
