New Exterior Style
To create something for busy professionals on a budget living in big cities, the Spark ACTIV has an urban chic aesthetic wrapped in a small package that easily navigates through tight city streets.

Are you going on a Thanksgiving road trip this week? Any chance you might also be bringing a pet with you? Sometimes traveling with a pet can be a challenge, but don’t let the stress of figuring out the best way to travel with a pet ruin your Thanksgiving. We have some tips and gadgets to make your Thanksgiving road trip with the little guy or gal as easy as possible.
Tips and Tricks
- Prepping the animal for the ride is key for a painless drive. This means a few weeks before start taking the dog (or cat) for a ride around the block. This will get them used to being in a vehicle and allow for them to be more comfortable and relaxed on the road trip which in the end is beneficial to you and them.
- Never leave the animal in the car! It doesn’t matter if it is hot or cold or the window is cracked, just don’t! This can make the pet anxious which could result in many things from them destroying you car to getting sick. Also, it is not uncommon for someone to see a pet in a car and get angry and break a window in an attempt to get the pet out of the car, especially if they don’t know that it has only been in there a couple of minutes.
