Small dogs are a delight to care for. When you welcome a small dog into your home, you can welcome them to share your couch, your chairs and even your bed while you sleep. If you’re like most of us, you give your small dog free reign to come and go as they please throughout the house; they become a part of the family and get to do what they want in a way that bigger dogs can’t as easily, simply because of their size. After all, it’s easier to let a Pomeranian cuddle with you on the couch while you watch TV than it is a Great Dane! So if you find that your small dog has become a big part of your life, it’s only natural that you want to take them with you wherever you can. It’s great for dogs to get out and socialize as often as possible, to make sure that they can stay relaxed and happy in any situation. A dog chest carrier makes it easier to take your small dog with you wherever you go.

First and foremost, a dog chest carrier keeps your dog out of the way when you’re outside. Oftentimes we get caught up in big crowds or we visit places with much larger dogs that might be a threat to the safety of our little pooch, so a carrier is a great way to get your small friend off the ground and out of danger. You can also rely on a carrier to give you dog’s little legs the rest that they need. It’s easy for us to get around on long trips, walking wherever we need to go, quickly and easily on our long legs. But your little dog has to take a hundred times more steps than you do over the course of the day just to keep up, and on long outings that might get a little too exhausting for your pooch. The last thing you want is a grouchy dog that will fuss and whine by the end of the day.

When it comes to picking out the best carrier, the process is simple. Take the time to find a carrier that is lightweight and breathable; this will ensure that neither you or your dog get uncomfortable as you travel together. The carrier should offer plenty of support for your pooch as well as straps for your comfort. Measure carefully to make sure you get the right size and enjoy travel with your best friend!
