The only thing between you, your dog, and your destination is the carrier that gets your best friend safely from point A to B. There are a remarkable number available for little dogs, but a smaller count for those that offer the ultimate comfort, ventilation, and sturdy structure—all the things that help reduce stress in an otherwise stressful or scary situation. Take a look at our favorites below!
This carrier collapses flat for super convenient storage, but when expanded provides first-class comfort for its furry occupant. A durable mesh door, sturdy ventilated sides, & quality zippers surround the comfy padded mat (atop a waterproof base!). If only we could travel in such luxury.
All four classy shades of this bag make a statement, but it’s what it’s made of that really stands out. YKK zippers with locking clasps, breathable mesh on all sides, storage pockets for treats or medications, and a padded shoulder strap for the chauffeur, to name a few admirable features.
DJANGO’s gorgeous bag was too good not to include, even though it’s official release hasn’t arrived just yet. You can preorder this beaut constructed with durable canvas & leather, which includes a bag-to-harness tether for extra safety and a comfortable footpad for your tiny passengers.
If you’re looking for something a little more robust, a plastic crate with steel hardware is the way to go. It packs a punch when it comes to security and protection, and the squeeze latch lock is easy to use. Just throw in a soft blanket to stop your pup from slipping, and you’re ready to go.
Please excuse the cat—our photo options were limited. Still, he’s doing a fabulous job showing you how roomy this carrier is, and how nice it is to plant yourself upon the comfy interior liner. There’s plenty of ventilation with the mesh windows, and the locking zippers prevent any Houdini-like escapes.
With easy-to-clean waterproof fabrics, this bright carrier has hit the trifecta of practicality. Its soft sides and padded floor prevent your pup from sliding around and becoming agitated, while the padded shoulder strap and luggage handle make it effortless to carry.
Unlike some carriers of lesser quality, the rigid construction and microfiber materials used to make this one will last your dog’s lifetime. The soft fleece bed is 100% washable, and the carrier itself is super easy to wipe clean and use again and again.
