Doesn't matter if they are travelling across the town or half way around the world, pet owners would always love to carry their dogs wherever they go! But not everyone out there is happy to welcome your dog. Dog carriers are the best choice for those who would love to be able to carry their dogs everywhere. These carriers are cleverly designed to look like your handbag. So you can now tuck your dog inside the bag and get set to enjoy your shopping. But should concealing your dog be the only motive? Certainly not! The dog carrier should be least stressful for your pet and you as well. Before you buy a dog carrier there are a few things to keep in mind.
A majority of these dog carriers are made of nylon. Although there are a few plush one's that are available in leather. The material of the bag should be comfortable enough for the dog. The carrier should have a soft and warm bottom. You can add to its comfort by putting in a pillow, blanket or towel. If your dog gets uncomfortable when left in the dark, or is uneasy when left alone make sure that the bag has plenty of area to see through. The bag should also have a place to hook a leash.
The size of the bag also matters. The bag should be large enough, to not only contain the dog but also should be large enough to allow your dog to stretch. Make sure these bags have pockets so that you can carry your wallet and cell phone inside the bag. There should be enough room to carry your pet's favorite toy. Just because the dog fits inside the bag doesn't mean that the bag should be able to carry the weight of the dog. Make sure to test the durability of the dog.
If planning to travel by air, be sure to buy a dog carrier that's approved by the airline. A roller carrier is usually comfortable when travelling by air. It also doubles up as a luggage carrier for you.
Price of course isn't a consideration when buying a comfortable bag for your beloved dog! But it's important to get your money's worth. There are some designer bags that cost a bomb, but are nothing in terms of efficiency. The premium price is only for the 'designer' tag that these bags carry. However, there are quite a few designer bags that are efficient and justify the high price. When looking for dog carriers go for one that's the best in terms of comfort.
