What kind of dog carriers are available for me?

Have Carrier, Will Travel

If you're looking for a carrier to transport your canine for travel, you have a number of options. You need to assess what type of dog you have and what type of travel you'll be doing. For mid-sized or larger breeds, your options are more limited. Hard sized carriers can be used, but must go in the cargo area of a plane. To lighten your load, consider getting a kennel cart for ease of transport.

For smaller breeds, you have a wide selection of dog carriers. Many products on the market allow you to take your dog practically everywhere. Backpack carriers are available for hiking and wheeled bags are available for flying.

For airplane travel, consider an airline regulation sized soft carrier. If your pet is small enough, she can ride with you in the cabin under the plane seat. Make sure she has enough room to stand comfortably if need be. If you need a crate to stow in the car and use for later, a collapsible crate may be the right answer. Or for day trips around town, many chic designer dog carriers are on the market as well. There is something for every dog owner out there, just know what you need before you buy!
