Small Dog Carriers - A Must For Small And Toy Breeds

Small dog carriers are a must for breeds such as pugs, lhasa apsos, terriers, pekingese, maltese, poodles, pomeranians, bichon frises and similar small and toy dogs. Many public places will only allow your dog entry if they are secured, in a carrier.

They are available, in various sizes, styles and prices. It may be a fashionable dog purse, handbag, tote or duffel bag. Choose from trusted brands such as Sherpa, Goochie Poochie and Park Avenue.


A carrier for your small dog will have features that provide comfort, convenience and safety; with mesh panels on the sides of the carrier for ventilation and holes for your dog to stick his head out, with roll-up flaps for privacy when needed. Safety clasps and restraining straps are offered to keep your dog secured in the carrier. Some bag designs offer adjustable shoulder straps that you can detach and use as a leash when it is time for your dog to walk.

Small carriers or purses are usually water-resistant. Inside - absorbent material such as micro-fiber is used, and outside - a water resistant vinyl.

These small carriers have removable bottom linings that can be easily washed. Some brands design the lining with extra cushion so it may double as a bed with enough space for your dog to sleep in comfort or play around inside, which makes them useful when traveling.

Dog carriers need not be designer purses or handbags; there are a wide assortment of hard and soft sided traditional carriers available.

Other types of small carriers include wearable front and back packs, slings, suit case style, and wheeled strollers.

Select a small dog carrier that will most meet you and your best friend's needs and lifestyle.
