    Hi guys,

    So a long time ago I promised I would share my CAD drawings if my Kickstarter Campaign wasn't successful. Unfortunately the campaign wasn't a success. BUT I did source funding elsewhere.

    The hold up with making the drawings available has been trying to get a Patent cleared and submitted. We now have the status Patent Pending for our Pillion Pooch and so can safely share all the details. I'm happy that people at home with the required knowhow use this design to make up a unit for their own use but obviously I don't want anyone profiting from it.

    However, please do consider the units that we are selling before proceeding, they've been in development for over 5 years and tested thoroughly while travelling through the America's and around Africa. We've load tested the frame to 250kg and the harness point to 100kg. When taking the labour into consideration, to make these units to the same standard as what we are selling will not be nearly as cheap as we can provide them. Our first prototype cost us over $3,000, and although we have worked out some cost cutting techniques (which you will find in the attached drawings), its still a heavily laborious job on top of quality materials which simply costs money.

    I'd say the biggest obstacle is finding pet friendly accommodation, but this is getting easier. When we set off 5 years ago the booking websites weren't so pet friendly, now they all have filters. We have had long nights trying to find accommodation but we've got much better at this with time. It certainly adds to the adventure.

    Finding dog food can be a challenge, in Ethiopia it was banned. But if your dog is happy to eat beans and eggs for a few days (or what ever you are eating) then its fine.

    Some countries are more difficult to get into, but as long as you do the research its pretty easy. Panama has us pay US$120 to enter but that is by far the most expensive. Some places have a small fee but most cost nothing at all. Belize was probably the second most expensive at $50 but if we'd completed the online form it would have been $30 (from memory and this was in 2014 so could have changed). You'll need proof of rabies vaccination and probably best to have a microchip (essential for some countries). If you are going to Africa you'll have trouble with South Africa, we were refused but just went to another border and let the officials assume the dogs were from Namibia which was no problem. We were also told we should have completed an online form for Rwanda but the officials let us in anyway. Other than that Europe has strict rules but they are well documented and easy to follow, the main addition being the titre test for rabies done 3 months before arrival, this then should last as long as you keep your rabies vaccinations in date. Once in the EU I'd recommend getting am EU PETS Passport and keeping it up to date, then you can come and go as you please from any country. For the UK you also need worming treatment between 24 hours and 5 days of arrival, the QM2 has an exemption on this time since they are at sea for 7 days and if treated for worms before departing NY they won't get it on the transit.

    Hope that helps
