Best suited for: Over the shoulder carrier
Also works for: Stealth transport, people avoiding puppy bling
Overall rating: ★★★★★
This carrier is made of hemp, which will please the environmentalist in you, and it’s well-constructed. The entire top is a mesh panel (with UV protection), and there are mesh panels on each end. The bottom has some rigidity and a fleece pad, so your dog has something stable (and comfortable) to rest on. There are a couple of useful pockets, a water-bottle pocket on one end, and a lanyard inside to clip to your dog’s collar or harness. The shoulder strap is sturdy and the ends swivel, so it’s easy to sling across your chest like a messenger bag.
The carrier is dark brown and natural, with black trim. It’s really a handsome carrier — and fairly stealthy, too. It comes in two sizes: Small (about 8″ tall, 11″x5″ at the bottom, about 14″ wide at the top opening) and Large (about 12″ tall, 14″x6″ at the bottom, about 18″ wide at the top opening). The Small size will fit toy breeds; the Large will fit a dog up to Chloe’s size but no bigger — say 11 lbs. or under. [Please note reader Dave’s report, in the comments below, that the measurements you see on line are not accurate — the ones I have provided match the actual products. Thanks, Dave, for the research!]
