Gerbil Carriers

For those times when you want or need to take your gerbil out of the house, you may consider getting gear like gerbil harnesses and leashes or a gerbil carrier to aid the process. Chewy has several great gerbil travel carriers and other supplies to help make getting out of the house as safe and easy as possible for your pet.

Walking your gerbil on a gerbil leash in parks or busy areas can be dangerous, so consider limiting outings to safe backyard areas or secluded spaces if you decide to try this out. The best gerbil leashes and harnesses will be appropriately sized, lightweight and secure, so take extra care when shopping for gear for your gerbil. If you can find a gerbil harness that's small enough to fit your pet, choose one that fits snugly without binding and make sure that your gerbil can't escape it. Make sure to secure it properly and attach it to a very light leash, as heavy leashes can injure or stress small pets. Be sure to keep a close eye on your gerbil while walking, and don't walk too fast or pull the leash or you may injure your pet. Many experts recommend against walking gerbils on leashes because of the many hazards, so consider alternatives like playpens for safe play outside the cage.

A great way to bring your gerbil wherever he needs to go, whether to the vet or on an outing, is to use a small animal travel carrier. The best gerbil carriers will have adequate ventilation, escape-proof design and sturdy construction. You can find several appropriately sized carriers on our site, and some have cool features like lids that pop open for easy access or a familiar cage-style design to keep your gerbil calm on longer trips. Choose from hard-shell or soft-side bag carriers to suit your style preference and travel needs.

Putting familiar items like gerbil hideouts and beds, gerbil toys and even a little gerbil bedding from your gerbil cage can make the travel carrier more comfortable for your little pet. Try carrying gerbil food and gerbil treats along as rewards even on short trips, they'll make your gerbil feel more at ease and help him forget he's in an unfamiliar place. You can find all the gerbil supplies you need for travel and outings at Chewy.com. Shop for gerbil harnesses and leashes and find all the best travel gear for your pet!

Frequently Asked Questions about Gerbil Carriers

Can I walk my gerbil on a harness?

You can walk your gerbil on a harness, but only if you can train him successfully and find somewhere safe to walk him. Finding gerbil harnesses that fit securely can be a challenge, and gerbil leashes must be lightweight enough not to weigh down your tiny pet. Some experts recommend using a playpen instead of a gerbil leash and harness for outdoor exercise.

How do I put a harness on a gerbil?

Put a harness on a gerbil by securing it according to the package directions. For vest and H-style harnesses, place the harness across the back and secure it around the neck and tummy using the adjustable fasteners. Be sure you have a snug and secure; but not too tight; fit before you attach a leash and venture outside.

What are the best gerbil carriers?

The best gerbil carriers are well-ventilated and secure carriers made specifically for small pets. Hard plastic and soft-sided gerbil carriers can work equally well, or try a gerbil travel cage for an option that feels a little more like home.
