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, camping, shopping.
• Make sure that the style of your dog carrier should not be harmful to your pet
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.
• For puppies
if there are no puppy carriers available, you can choose a small dog carrier instead. Just add a thick blanket to make it more comfortable for your puppy to sleep on.
make sure that the dog carrier you purchased has a small pouch for items such as extra dog clothes to put on. If you are planning to go on traveling, the carrier must have a place for food and water.
