Dog Carriers

When it comes to picking the right dog carrier, there are three primary areas of consideration—safety, comfort and ease of use. While most will check all three boxes, it’s important to do your homework to ensure the pet carrier you pick provides the very best in all three categories. Keeping your dog safe while traveling is of utmost importance. When choosing a dog carrier, be sure it’s designed with a wide, sturdy base so it can’t tip as your dog moves and shifts her weight around. Make sure all doors and openings securely latch to keep your dog safely contained. And be sure the carrier you choose has plenty of ventilation. This is particularly important for nervous dogs who may anxiously pant while contained in her carrier. You’ll also want to be sure your dog is comfortable while contained. Some carriers are made with soft materials that your dog will love cozying up against. Others are made with wire or plastic, adding rigidity, but cutting down on comfort. Whether made of hard or soft materials, a soft dog mat can make all the difference. Look for dog carriers that include a plush mat. Or if you’d rather chose your own mat, purchased separately, be sure to select one that fits well so it can’t shift as your dog moves about. Be sure to choose a dog carrier that will be easy for you to use based on your needs. Some carriers feature multiple doors on the front, sides or even on top, making it easy for you dog to enter and exit no matter how they’re placed. Many soft designs are pre-approved for carry-on air travel, ensuring you get to your destination without issue. There are backpack-style carriers that are great when you need to carry your dog hands-free. And dog carriers with extra pockets are perfect for storing dog treats and food, or even your wallet, phone or other belongings. When choosing your dog carrier, be sure it’s safe, comfortable and easy to use for years of fun, trip after trip.
