My 13 lb. dog who is 17 years old and has arthritis needs to be carried up and down stairs. While this carrier is long enough and wide enough, and I certainly buttoned her into the carrier, it is so shallow, she looked absolutely terrified even when I kept my hand underneath her. My dog is a Chihuahua/ Corgi with short legs. This is only big enough for a very small dog or puppy under 10 lbs.
If you need to take your little one with you when running around doing errands or someplace where they can't be down the whole time, this is nice. There is no structure to it like a backpack though. It's nice to take with you on a walk, in case the walk is longer than expected and your little one needs a break.
This is well built! My dog loves riding around in it! I recently went on a trip, and I decided not to take it with me… I regretted it. I had to go to a local pet store and buy one and it wasn’t nearly as nice. I love how the strap is adjustable, It has a place for treats or waste bags. And the fabric is very good quality. It does not make my dogs hair matte.
Absolutely LOVE this sling from Slow Ton. It is one of the few that is sized and appropriately at that. My little guy has always called this home because he gets to see everything I get to see and we get to enjoy life together. It's Perfect! Thank You Slow Ton and Chewy.
Very uncomfortable for my yorkie, pulls in your shoulder and have to readjust constantly
I ordered this for our new puppy who is only 2 pounds. He would get LOST in here!
My kitty, Odin, loves it! He snuggled down with his head out to watch the world. His whole attitude changed! Now, he sleeps with me, snuggles next to me, talks to me! It is like he just realized that I love him!
This carrier is wonderful, easy, secure, constructed well wi th good fabric, lightweight.
I had a smaller sling carrier that was great but my puppy grew out of it. This one has no support and my puppy was very uncomfortable. She weighs 9 pounds and her body gets all bunched up inside.
I thought this would be good for carrying my kitten but there's nothing to keep her from jumping out. She's too small to wear a harness and collar so I can't attach her to the sling, and even if I did I think she would still be constantly trying to get out. There's no mesh layer to zip up to keep her down if she's being ornery. But maybe it will be ok when she's bigger.
