Dog Carriers & Travel Bags – They Are Not Silly Sounding

Dog Carriers & Travel Bags - They Are Not Silly Sounding

There are many reasons to buy a dog carrier bag for your pet, from age and health reasons to the fact that small feet get tired more quickly than our feet, for safety reasons.

A very practical reason is to give you and your dog access to many areas that don’t allow dogs – public transport, shopping centers, cafes, etc. I was horrified when I saw dogs tied up outside shops and malls. The problems that can arise from this are many and varied. A dog that has been tied up can be put into very frightening conditions and can even bite or bite people or children if approached.

Your pet can also be abused or even stolen when left unattended. If your dog is contained in a pet carrier entry into these areas it cannot be easily denied. Many people use pet carrier bags to smuggle their pets into apartment buildings with undue rules regarding animal access. These rules usually try to stop dogs and cats from polluting public areas, so confining in a dog carrier bag reduces all these problems.

Backpacks for dogs are great if you travel and want your dog to come and enjoy the fun. Small dogs can quickly overheat and need to take a break from walking more often than you. The sling is great for puppies and small dogs. They are very much like baby carrier style papoose and are fast and easy to use.

Get into the habit of your dog in his bag, by first allowing him to sit quietly at home. Put some of their favorite snacks or toys there too. As they become more accustomed to limited space then you can start walking with bags. It won’t take long for them to associate good things with their travel bags.…

Dog Carrier: Steps to Take When Bringing Your Dog for a Long Journey

When you plan to take a long trip to visit relatives or friends and want to bring your pet along, then you need to have a carrier for dogs that can provide comfort and safety for your pet. You can use a trendy pink dog carrier made of plastic that cannot be folded and can stand alone like a pet toy carrier that is loved by many children.

So what are these steps that you need to take to ensure that your pet will feel comfortable and safe on his dog’s journey during a long trip? There are four steps that you must follow. These steps are recommended by many veterinarians so that this means that this is an effective step that must be considered.

The first step you should do is leave enough space around your pink dog car after packing it in the car or the back seat. This is to prevent your pet from getting soaked with various items in the car. When this happens, there is a big tendency that your pet will feel hot and suffocate.

The second step you can do is provide good ventilation. You can do this by ensuring that a good amount of air can pass through or flow in and out of the carrier.

The third step, on the other hand, is for you to ensure that the dog carrier is securely attached to the back seat or to the part of the car where it is placed. This is to prevent accidents from happening when you suddenly stop.

The fourth and final step for you to check all your pet’s carrier hooks before you leave. Make sure it is locked securely.

Approved Pet Operators and Procedures for Flying with Your Pet

Flying with your pet requires more effort than just buying a plane ticket, checking his luggage, and placing it comfortably in his seat. For animals, special protocols must be obeyed, and such protocols differ from one airline to another. Some airline companies have strict requirements especially for the size of the pet carrier that is to be brought onto the plane. An airline-approved pet carrier would be the safest to bring, and to know this, you as a pet owner should take the full initiative in gathering the information needed to smoothen your traveling experience with your pet.

Flying with allows animals

Before purchasing a carrier, make sure that the airline you are flying with allows animals to be onboard their aircraft. For most airlines, you will also need a reservation for your pet. Once you have your reservation, it is important that you should measure your pet carrier based on the size of your dog and on the airline-approved pet carrier size as well. Remember, if you are a 16 “dog from head to base, you will need a carrier that is longer than 16” so that your pet has room to move and change position.

The pet must be in good health

Also, before your scheduled flight, make sure your pet is in good health to avoid questions from airline staff. In general, when a pet is in very good condition, it will behave properly and hence there will be no problem carrying it.

Usually, smaller dogs such as Chihuahuas, Yorkies, Shitz Zus, Maltese, and Bichons have no problem getting into large vessels that are approved by the airline. When your dog reaches 20-22 lbs or more it becomes more difficult to find a pet carrier that is large enough that is approved by the airline and can …

Airline Approved Car Carriers – How to Choose the Right One

Airline Approved Car Carriers - How to Choose the Right One

If you plan to take your dog with you on a plane, you will need a pet airline that is approved by the airline … and you must do your homework before buying it. The term “pet carrier” is rather generic so let’s start by breaking things down a little.

If you have a very small dog (such as one of the teacup breeds) then you can easily use a soft-sided carrier which is often just called a pet bag and you will be able to keep your dog with you in the cabin. If your dog is large (such as a German Shepherd or Golden Retriever) then you will actually need a hard-sided dog crate or dog cage and your pet will need to travel in the cargo section.

Between sized dogs or large-breed young puppies

For the in-between sized dogs or large-breed young puppies, things get a bit more tricky. You’ll need to be sure to measure the carrier, measure your dog, and check with the airline you will be using to see what their requirements are.

While airlines may vary slightly, here are some general guidelines for the sizes that will likely be accepted for in-cabin pet carriers.

  • Small – 16″ long x 10″ wide x 8.5″ in height – suitable for pets up to 8 lbs            
  • Medium – 18″ long x 11″ wide x 10.5″ in height – suitable for pets up to 16 lbs            
  • Large – 20″ long x 11.75″ W x 11.5″ in height – suitable for pets up to 22 lbs        

Never make a decision based solely on the weight of your pet! In fact, measuring your animal is actually more important because your dog must be able to move and feel comfortable during the trip. The weight is really more for you …
