With all the hype of pet clothes, it's no wonder why so many pet clothing manufacturing companies are releasing their latest lines of pet carriers. Pet carriers (also known as pet totes, bags or purses) are used to transport your pet with you wherever you go. Pet carriers look similar to purses and are just big enough for you to tote your furry friends all around town. Although these may seem somewhat pointless, they have many great qualities which make them worth purchasing. Here are just a few of the reasons we think pet carriers are a worthwhile investment:
- Pet carriers are great for smaller dogs who often get tired when walking for long periods of time. Just pick them up and put them in the bag where they can relax and enjoy the ride.
- They are a great accessory to any outfit. Pet carriers come in so many styles and colors that they will match and accessorize any outfit. Pet carriers are much like purses; you can mix and match according to which outfit you are wearing that day.
- Over the shoulder pet carriers (designed like a purse) make transporting your pet from one place to another easy and efficient as opposed to carrying them in your arms.
Pet carriers are great for picnics, beaches or any outdoor getaways. They are becoming increasingly popular and some forms are even designed with a purse in mind. That's right, you can carry your pet in your carrier or tote and also have compartments for your wallet, cell phone and other accessories. This means using only one bag as opposed to two; much better for your back and shoulders. Beware though, you may answer your pooch and not your phone.
If you are looking to purchase a pet carrier, either for yourself or as a gift for someone you know, expect to pay as little as $40. Pet carriers cost more than a purse because of all the extra space provided for your pet. That being said, some name brand pet carrier designs can cost up to thousands of dollars depending on the designer and the style of the carrier.
