There are several different ways you could travel with your pet. For example: in a car, an airplane, for a jog or riding a bike. Which every way you are choosing to travel with your pet, you want to make sure that you have a safe pet travel carrier that is suitable for your trip.
Booster Seats For Your Car
A lot of people like to take their dog with them when they go places. Sometimes, it is just to the store and back or they may take them on vacation or to visit relative out of state. Most people do not think about what might happen to their pet if they were in an accident.
There are safety boosters seats that you can put in your car for your dog to sit in while you travel. These booster seats have a strap that goes around the back of the headrest to keep the seat in place. The have a short leash to hook to your dog’s collar to help keep them from jump out of the set while you are driving.
These seats are compatible with most vehicles. They are made for easy cleaning and storing. They also come with pocket on it to store treats and toys.
Carriers For Your Bicycle
If, you are a person that likes to ride your bike and would like to take your dog along for the ride; there are three different styles to choose from. Most of these take some assembly. All carriers are easy to clean and come with some type of safety leash to keep your pet safe.
There is a carrier that you can attach to the handlebars. These are made to fit most bikes. They come with a safety leash to keep your dog from jumping out. These are suitable for dogs up to 15 lbs. You will want to check the weight before buying some are for smaller dogs up to 11 lbs. Some of these carriers can also be used to carrier your dog around in once you get to your destination.
Next, you have the carrier that attaches to the rear of your bike. These do not seem to be as popular as the front carriers, but they can be used with a bigger dog. They come with reflective strips and a three point harness for safety. There is some extra assembly required. Your bike needs to have a rack on the back to attach the carrier to. Again you want to make sure you check the size before buying. These can be used with dogs up to 24 lbs.
The last type of carrier is a bike trailer or stroller that you pull along behind your bike. These can cost quite a bite more than the other carriers. But you can buy them in bigger sizes. If, you have a larger dog you want to take with you, while riding. These can hold up 110 lbs.
I also found some of these have dual-purpose. They can be used by joggers or attach to your bike. They come with reflective strips and a leash hook up for safety.
Strollers For Joggers
Joggers have the option to get a stroller for their dog. As I mentioned, some of these are for bikes or for jogging. The other choice would be a stroller just for jogging. These come with a front wheel that swivels, making it easy to turn.
During, my research I found that there is two types of wheels. Some of the strollers have the bigger wheels for a more comfortable ride. The other strollers have smaller wheels; they are more lightweight. If, you plan on taking the stroller places with you the stroller with the smaller wheels will be easier to lift.
These strollers come with mesh covers. Some of these come with tethers as a safety feature. Some of the strollers just for jogging can hold up to 75 lbs.
Carriers For A Plane Ride
The airlines have requirements when it comes to the size carrier you can bring on the plane. These work good for small dogs. If, you take your pet on an airplane, the bag has to meet the airlines requirements. First, I would check with the airline before purchasing a carrier to find out their requirements.
These carriers can be brought on the plane and will fit under the seat. They are soft with mesh windows. Some have expandable sides. They all have a soft interior so that your dog can have a comfortable place to lay during the ride. Some of these carriers can hold up to 22 lbs.
They also come with a comfortable strap for carrying. These bags can also be used when you are not traveling. They make good carriers for around the house or if you are going short distances.
Where Ever You May Go
However you choose to travel there is a carrier made to fit the situation. I have given you some option to check into; whether you are just going for a jog or going on an airplane ride. Whatever the activity you plan on taking your pet with you keep them safe and happy.
