Would this carrier be safe to use and not slip off while bike riding?
Answer by ChewyFeb 06, 2018
If used correctly, this product will not slip off of you while riding a bike. We don't recommend attaching the carrier directly to the bike.

is this Bag reversible to back and front.?
Answer by ChewyNov 19, 2019
While this product was designed to carry your pet in front of you, the carrier can be put on your back.

Does this also have a waist belt?
Answer by ChewyJan 19, 2018
This Carrier does feature a waist strap.

Am a bus rider and i would like to know just in case i can't get on the bus because my yorkie is hanging out? Can i ziping up the top of the carrier while we are on the bus or train ???
Answer by ChewyJan 19, 2018
The top of the bag can be pulled to tighten and close.

We both love it

My Chi jumps right in and ready to go. It is so much more comfortable to her and myself than what I was using. She goes with me everywhere. Rides my horse, four wheeler and motorcycle. We take walks. My other pouch she had to put her legs thru and never seemed secure or comfortable.

Perfect!! Well made and comfortable!

I got a tiny Chihuahua puppy almost two weeks ago. She will stay very small. This is perfect for taking her places. I love that it is a front pack because you can hold them and still have the use of your arms. It is very well made and comfortable. Chewy is fast shipping.

Works great but ONLY ONE pocket

My dog loves to sit in this. He gets so excited when he sees it because he knows he gets to see the world without lifting a paw. Theres only one small pocket in the front which is annoying. If this had side pockets for a water bottle or treats it’d be so much more helpful.

I am not happy with this Pouch

I tried to use this on a hike carrying a 3 1/2 pound Yorkie. By the time i made 1/2 mile my neck felt like it was broken. I dont think this is a very good design as i have tried several different ways and cant find anything that helps. I would not spend my money for this. I wish i had someone who would have said this to me.

Not good for Dachshunds

The bag is bag is not deep enough for the length of any Dachshund. Even though there is a harness retaining strap/fastener, your dog would easily slide out of this or be insufficiently seated to be safe.

I'm so disappointed.

I read the reviews and they were all over the place---1 star to 5 stars. I thought that the company might have gotten the kinks out by now. Not so. There are 3 problems with the pack that I received. First, the stretchy cord around the top was not secured properly on the right side and popped right off as I tried to tighten it, without a dog in it..... Second, the pack is lopsided. The pack is not centered on its floor. There is more material on one side than the other and it consequently dips on one side. It would throw out the human's back and the dog would slide to the side. Third, is a design flaw. The straps fall right off of one's shoulders. They have to be crossed in back to get them to stay up. This can be accomplished if one puts the pack on before inserting the dog in the carrier. I was vary much looking forward to this pack and am quite disappointed. Photos available upon request.

Pooch Carrier

I find it hard to keep straps on my shoulders, If I cross them in the back I have to have someone help me get it hooked. I don't always have a second person to help. It is well made and Rory is good to be in it.

Way too small

Got this for my 8 week old 6 lb puppy and she was already way too big for it. Disappointing since the product description says up to 20 lbs. Do not recommend!
