When you are traveling or when you go
shopping, you must have the right pet carrier in whatever activity you and your
pet are planning to do. Your activity must coincide with the carrier of your
choice. It seems inappropriate to use a traveling carrier for shopping or a
shopping carrier for traveling.
Here are some lists to aid you in choosing the right carrier for your dog:
• Before you purchase several pet carriers to fit your activities
measure your dog first. The measurement
will aid you as to choosing the correct size of your dog’s carrier. If you do
not measure your dog, you might end up buying the wrong size thus making you
waste your money.
• There are various pet carriers available in the market
It comes in different styles and sizes.
Choose the ones that will fit you and your dog’s activities like traveling,
• Make sure that the style of your dog carrier should not be harmful to
Once they are inside, your dog must feel
comfortable and not restless. Dogs are highly sensitive. If they are not
comfortable with the place they are in, they will make a lot of noise. So if
you do not want to be disturbed when you are sleeping during your camp outs
then better make sure that your dog is quite comfortable with the carrier they
he or she is staying in.
• If you have a small dog like a Chihuahua
choose a small dog carrier that will best
fit their personality. They are the type of dog that gets cold easily, so the
carrier you should choose should keep them warm.

When you travel with your pets either by
plane, train, bus, or car, choose pet carriers that will make their journey
comfortable. Choose a carrier that is reliable. You will be traveling for long
periods of time. If the carrier you choose is not reliable you might be having
difficulty replacing it during your travel.
The right specification of Pet
Pet carriers can be made of plastic,
wicker, or metal. Choose the ones that have the front or top openings and can
be closed using a secure latch. Make sure that you select the ones that have
enough space for your pet to move around i.e. standing up or turning around.
Most cats and dogs cannot stay in one position for a long time so they move
around a lot.
If you are traveling with a large dog, select
dog carriers that are made of solid sides and roofs. Make sure that the carrier
you choose should have strong base support and will not sag once your dog is
inside. It must be able to hold the weight of your dog.
The dog carriers you choose should be easy
for you to carry. They must have a strong handle to be able to carry the dog’s
weight. There are even some dog carriers that are attached to wheels. This will
make it easier for you by pulling the carrier wherever you go especially in the

a problem carrying them around. You can adjust its strap to your desired length

Small dog accessories can make traveling with your pet much easier and
safer. There are many places where you can take your pet where he can have a
good time too. Take him on a fishing trip, to the beach, to the park, to visit
friends or even for a short drive. Before traveling with your pet, it’s
important to know that he can be injured in the same way as kids if you slam on
the brakes or if you’re involved in an accident.
For this reason, pets need to be secured in a vehicle to keep them safer
and there are several accessories available to accommodate this need. Small dog
car seats and baskets will help secure your pet and keep her safer while
riding. She won’t be flying into the back of the seat if you suddenly hit the
brakes or from one side of the car to other when you go around sharp curves.
If your pet doesn’t seem comfortable in one of these or refuses to use
them, there are other small dog accessories available. Try using a small dog
harness instead. Place the harness on your pet as normal and then slip the
seatbelt through the opening for the leash. This will strap him in and prevent
him from bouncing around while on the road.
Once your pet is secured, you can think about some of the other small
dog accessories that can make traveling even more enjoyable. Seat covers are a
great investment if you want to protect your car, truck, or van from claw marks
or any accidents that your dog may have. It can be hard to control the bathroom
urge when traveling especially if your pet is not used to riding in a vehicle.
Seat covers come in a variety … Read more
As the proprietor of a bed & breakfast in Oaxaca,
Mexico, I frequently field inquiries from travelers with plans to visit the
city who are intent upon bringing the household dog or cat along for the
vacation. They initially ask if pets are permitted in our guest level, and then
after receiving a reply in the negative, in a second email ask for names of
alternate hotels or other accommodations which do accept pets. The advice is
always the same, but the inquiries keep coming.
This pet lover and owner of a brindle boxer is not a pet
psychologist, nor professes to intimately know what’s right or wrong when it
comes to decisions about the household dog or cat (or one’s children for that
matter – lord knows we’ve made and will continue to make mistakes raising our
daughter), nor the impact that leaving a pet behind could have on the mutt or
his “parents” or “siblings.” However, there are certain
factors which ought to at least be considered prior to deciding definitively to
take Fido or Tabby along for the trip.
Yes, Some Hotels and Bed & Breakfasts in Oaxaca Do Accept Pets,
Including Dogs and Cats
Of course virtually every major tourist city in the
civilized world includes the odd hotel, guest house or bed & breakfast
which accepts pets, at minimum dogs and cats. Oaxaca is no exception. For
example, a couple of members of the Oaxaca Bed & Breakfast Association are
happy to extend invitations to the four legged. But most shun the thought of
even the possibility of a cat meowing or dog barking, and therefore having to
contend with complaints from pet-less guests. Certainly there are exceptions;
but what might it reveal about the quality of lodging if the owner is
struggling to rent … Read more
Sometimes when you are just strolling around the town you
will find yourself in front of a pet shop and it is usually very difficult to
look away once you make eye contact with one of the pets. They just gaze at you
asking to be taken home.
You may even stay for a while or go play with the animals
and then that look is even deeper. At that point you make a decision whether to
take the pet home or just continue on your way.
A lot of people decide to just move on. The truth is that it
can be very difficult to take care of a pet especially if you have a busy
Once in a while a person may be inspired though, and will
walk away with a brand new pet to care for. And even though it can be tough at
times, it feels good when they are there for you.
It is amazing how much joy people get from their pets. After
a day at work, coming home to a dog or cat or any other animal is so
Either they run to the door or just simply get happy to see
you come in and then you enjoy your time with them. Everyone gets such a kick
out of that feeling.
Adopting is even a step above just having a pet because you
are doing something really good. There is no way of knowing if the pet you adopted
would have ever been adopted or not.
Saving an animal’s life is a big deal and something that is
even more rewarding. That is additional on top of the joy you get from being
around your pet.
So if you choose to adopt from a shelter it is a … Read more
