Choose a carrier sized appropriately for your dog's weight and body measurements.
Measure Your Dog
Nervous dogs need more enclosed carriers versus open, exposed baskets or slings.
Assess Anxiety Level
Slings and backpacks allow hands-free dog carrying vs. handheld carriers.
Frequent use for travel or hiking requires more rugged construction.
Analyze Durability Needs
Air travel, car rides, biking and walking require different carrier features for safety.
Assess ventilation, visibility, foldability, washability, storage and other features.
Dog carriers range from $20 basic totes to $200+ airline types with more bells and whistles.
Mind the Budget
