Tips To Select The Best Carrier For Your Dog

by Sharon Jones Content Marketing

Summary: Do you always have to leave your furry friend at home or a pet crèche whenever you travel? Well, there’s something that’ll eliminate this problem once and for all – a carrier.


For many pet owners, nothing is as depressing as leaving their furry friends behind when traveling. Whether they’re about to leave for vacation or drive to the supermarket to buy something, they feel like taking their doggies or kitties. When you bring home a pet creature, it becomes part of your family. A few decades ago, people never understood why pet lovers were so fussy about their furry friends. Today, however, everyone appreciates it if you behave that way. Now, you want to know how to go anywhere with your four-legged family member. The only thing you need is a carrier, and here’s how to choose one.


Measurements and size: Before you consider paying for a dog carrier, you have to measure your pet. Make sure that you do it correctly. As you’re going to carry your furry buddy in it, the bag has to be large enough for the creature to be able to stretch out. There should be enough room to let the animal stand up and turn around when needed. To measure the length of your pooch, start from the base of the neck to the root of the tail. Consider adding a few more inches to the value to make room for the head and tail. For height calculation, estimate the value by measuring from the floor to the top of the shoulders.


Using the item: Indeed, the ultimate objective of a dog carrier is to help the pet owner commute with the animal. However, you shouldn’t buy the first item you find on the internet or in a brick-and-mortar store. Buyers must consider how they’ll use the bag. It’ll help them decide on the kind of item they should buy, such as sling-type, soft-sided, backpack, etc. For instance, if you’re going to fly with your small dog, you need a soft-sided product that fits the airline's specifications.


The quality factor: The two pointers explained above are the most important, but they aren’t the only ones you need to consider. You must check the quality of the product before you buy it. Of course, you’ll inevitably feel like keeping your expenses to a minimum when purchasing an item like this. However, if you love your pet genuinely, you can’t be a cheapskate. After all, it’s the only thing that’ll keep your pet safe and comfortable inside an aircraft or a vehicle.


The durability factor: Whether you buy hard-sided crates or soft-sided bags, you have to make sure the item is durable. The internal supports need to be robust so that the item doesn’t collapse on your pet. Among soft-sided bags, prioritize the ones with reinforced seams and corners. It should also sit on the ground without tilting. Otherwise, your furry friend will find it annoying.


The animal’s temperament: Nobody should buy pet transportation products without paying attention to the temperament of the animal. Some dogs and cats tend to be nervous when flying. Bags with just one front zip won’t work for a creature that doesn’t like these bags. Products featuring top zippers, however, can solve this. Anxious pets also need their parents to calm them before heading outdoors.


One more tip


Other than everything mentioned above, you need to make sure that you pay for a flexible product. Many owners need pet transportation products for specific reasons. Some of them fly while others go for long rides in automobiles. There are also a few pet parents who want to go hiking with their pups and kittens. However, you may want to indulge in all these activities and to do that, you’ll need a multipurpose item. Therefore, you need to buy a bag that can expand or contract. If possible, purchase products with shoulder straps to carry like a backpack.
