There's a right carrier for you and your small dog!

People and dogs have a lot in common - we're all social animals. Your dog's favorite thing in the world is to be with you. There are so many carriers available today - one is certain to suit your style. Our staff at Golly Gear will be happy to help you find the right one for you!

Comfort Carrier

The Comfort Carrier's thoughtful features make this a favorite! This airline-approved pet carrier has lots of mesh for air circulation, shoulder and hand straps (which can even be used with seatbelts) - even a zippered "Pet Connect" feature which allows you to pet your dog while in flight, when she isn't allowed out of the carrier. Available in two sizes for pets up to 21 lbs., the Comfort Carrier's double zippers can be clipped together so even the cleverest pup can't scratch it open. One side is fully zippered (with a reflective stripe) and the other side is half-zipped so Fido can satisfy his curiosity from the safety of his Comfort Carrier.

3-in-1 Carrier

The 3-in-1 Carrier is exactly that - a bicycle carrier, a shoulder carrier and a car seat in one! Easy to use, with plenty of pockets and pouches for your stuff, too! Available in two sizes and seven colors - it even ships free!

Bon Voyage Carrier

The Bon Voyage Carrier by Daba Doo is light-weight and has a domed top, making it easy to carry. It folds flat for storage, making it convenient even when you're not using it! There's mesh on both sides, the front and the top of the Bon Voyage Carrier.

The back side has a long pocket for your ticket or other items. That side also has a webbing strap so that the Bon Voyage Carrier can be held on top of a larger piece of luggage when you travel. The double shoulder straps are held together by a comfortable slider. Sturdy feet protect the bottom of the carrier. Nylon, surface clean.

The Bon Voyage Carrier is assembled with three zippers. This is an extremely well-made carrier and it's quite sturdy. However, it is not for little dogs who know how to unzip things!

I-Go Rolling Carrier

The I-Go2 Traveler carrier by Pet Gear truly does it all. It's a rolling carrier with a telescoping handle.

It's a shoulder carrier with a detachable adjustable shoulder strap.

It's a tote with a comfortable handle.

It's a backpack with adjustable straps. Cover the wheels with the cover, tucked away in a pocket.

And it's a carseat too. Use the backpack straps to boost the carrier in a bucket seat!

Pooch Pack

The Pooch Pack by Daba Doo lets you hold your dog in front, legs out, with maximum comfort for both of you! The Pooch Pack has wide, adjustable shoulder and waist straps with a single, parachute-type clasp for you, and double side zippers with hook-and-loop closures for easy entry for your dog! An inner clip for your dog's collar ensures you have complete control. The Pooch Pack even has mesh side panels and front band for ventilation.

Go Green with this Carrier of Hemp!

The Hemp Carrier by Doggles LLC is loaded with extras! Not only is this carrier the perfect way to bring your little dog with you anywhere you go, it's made with a neutral brown and cream hemp canvas outer shell. The construction is durable denier nylon made of recycled water bottles. The UV mesh panels at the top, one long side and both short sides will provide protection for your little dog from UV rays while allowing air to circulate.

Pretty in Plaid Carrier

We love these! Our little dogs are safe and secure inside the Padded Carrier by Daba Doo, zipped in and with the tether firmly clasped to her collar. The sides are wonderfully cushioned - comfy for our little dogs. The center panel all the way around is mesh for ventilation. Clean-up is easy, with just a damp cloth. Removable base support ensures a flat bottom if you need to put your dog down. The base even has its own, removable cushion!

Luggage Style Carrier

The Luggage Style Tapestry Carrier is wonderful for travelling with your little dog - either around town or across the country! One end has a double zipper and the top has a U opening for easy access to your little one (there is velcro at the open side so even if the zipper comes open your little dog will stay put. The carry handles snap together and there is an adjustable detachable shoulder strap. One end has a large pocket and there's a small pocket on one long side. There are feet on the bottom of the carrier and it folds for easy storage. Weighs about 3 pounds.

Klassy Carrier

The Klassy Carrier by Daba Doo is light-weight, stylish and practical for you and your little dog.

The Klassy Carrier's square construction makes it compact and easy to handle. The front and back are padded and rigid so they won't collapse on your little dog. The sides and top are mesh. The front of the carrier has a pocket to hold your pup's essentials. There's also a fuzzy, removable pad on the floor of the carrier.

Where does your dog go? - And how does he/she get there?

      My schnauzer travels everywhere I go, he has been on over 30 airplanes, travelled cross country in the car at least one dozen time, and he comes with me when I ride my bike.. He is well travelled, and has a flight carrier for under the seat in the plane, a shoulder harness for the convertible and a travel bag.

      Our dogs love road trips...especially to the beach. They love picnics and long walks...followed by a nice, long nap. Good info here! Linked to our dog road trip lens "Dog Car Travel".

      My little Zoe has an I-Go Rolling Carrier. I take her most everywhere in it. It is also a car seat and I can detach it and put it on like a backpack. Good thing she's only 3 lbs.:)
