Just a little bit about who we are and what we do!
CindPete, maker of the BatziBelt line of products is a small company, and we are dedicated to pet safety and making it fun and easy to travel with your dog or other pet. We have added products to our line, including the Truck Bed Restraint, which incorporates the nylon strap of the BatziBelt for proper use, as well as other innovative
products for traveling. We are constantly searching for ways to make travel safer and easier for you and your pet!
As the owners of CindPete we, Bill and Lara, travel to Pet Expos as much as possible to spread the word about pet safety restraints and keeping things safe when riding in the car. We
were thrilled to be included in an AAA article in 2006, which was all about pet travel. The article, which first appeared in Westways magazine, was later picked up by other Auto
Club publications, including Texas Journey and the New England Traveler. We have also had the BatziBelt featured in several newspapers and magazines across the US, and
even in Australia!!
We love to hear from our customers, and welcome your ideas and suggestions. If you have of a product that makes your travel easier, please let us know. We are always
looking for ways to improve our company and spread new ideas to people like yourself.
How the Batzi Belt Came to Be
The BatziBelt was invented and patented by AJ Dupre, a retired commercial pilot. Mr. Dupre's dog, Batzi, loved to go in the car, but often jumped around so much that
driving with him wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t as safe as it should have been. Mr. Dupre set out to find a way to keep Batzi safe in the car so that they could continue to go everywhere together.
He spent time bending wire in his garage workshop until he created the prototype for the shackle, then attached a nylon lead to it. Further refinements followed, until the BatziBelt that we have today was completed. All Mr. Dupre's friends were thrilled with the idea and asked him to make more restraints for them as well. The BatziBelt was so popular that Mr. Dupre got a patent and started having them produced for him, using high quality manufacturers based exclusively in the USA. He also established Batzi.Com to let people know all about how to keep pets safe in the car. Sadly, Batzi passed away
in 2007 at the ripe old age of 14, from natural causes. Mr. Dupre has adopted another terrier, who is just as adorable as the original Batzi. His name is Batzi the 2nd.
Mr. Dupre chose to sell his company in 2005 and CindPete, Inc was lucky enough to purchase this fabulous product!
