Stella is super happy with her new traveling home!
I got the chocolate brown one for my son. His cat likes it because it gives her room to move around. It gives her a place to hide if she's feeling insecure - and gives her safe transportation. This carrier is well-made. All the stitching is firm and it has all the bells and whistles. I like that it lays flat for storage, unlike the plastic ones - and the door is more secure. On more than one occasion, I've seen the doors on plastic ones pop open unexpectedly. While I received this at a discount, I wasn't required to leave a review. I let a review because I love the carrier.
I haven't used this for our small dog yet, but I did finally get a chance to put it to the test this week. I have a senior cat that has to go to the vet every few months for blood work. I wanted her to have something more comfortable for her treks back and forth. I had a fairly old school hard-sided plastic carrier, but she'd cry miserably when she was in it. I'm not sure why, but she definitely didn't put up the fight she usually does with the plastic carrier. She also settled down fairly quickly once inside. Not the usual crazy yowling all the way to the vet's office. All of this was awesome, but when we got into the car to go home, she peed in her carrier. Gallons (or so it seemed). When we got home I took her out, expecting to have to give her a bath, but the included little bed had absorbed every. single. drop. I rinsed it under clear, cold water for a couple of minutes, threw it in the washer on a gentle cycle and it came out just fine! This, alone, makes this carrier worth every cent. She wets her carrier fairly regularly when she has to go anywhere, so usually the stress of a bath is added to the whole ordeal. Aside from the obvious merits of a carrier that doesn't leak urine all over the car, I am also pretty excited about the quality. The fabric feels like a stiff canvas duck, but is smooth to the touch. The vegan leather handles and details make it look fairly swanky. My assistant at work even commented on it when we went to pick her up. The zippers seem strong and don't miss, plus it has a cool little leash feature inside (for dogs, I assume?). I didn't use the shoulder strap to carry it this time around, but I did attach it to the carrier and the snaps on each end moved smoothly and held strongly. All-in-all, I'm super impressed. I bought this on Amazon, but will probably buy one for my mom directly from the site. Thumbs-up from this cat lady!
You will love this Next Level Pet Carrier, my dog had a great time in it when we went out to the Port. This carrier has strong handles and a strap so you can carry it on your shoulder as well, the carrier has many ways your doggy can go inside, it had zipper on all its sides and on the top of the bag, is open all the way around so your doggy will be able to enjoy the view, it has leather hooks at the end of all the zippers so you will be able to put a lock if you need to when traveling at the airport. I like the color, I like the quality of the bag, in the inside it comes with a fluffy doggy bed that you can also take out and wash when you need to or you can also use it out side the carrier for relaxing next to you, I really like the fact that you can fold it and put it inside your luggage or backpack or you can put it away when you're not using it. We had a great time!
I am the owner of 5 cats and am constantly searching for a product that will help with their care. I have used multiple carriers and usually end up with scratches all over because I am trying to stuff them in the hard outer shell. This carrier solves that problem. The fabric is durable but it is flexible so I can move it around the cat to get them in the carrier. It would also be perfect for small dogs. There has been so much thought into each piece of the carrier - it is extremely functional! My only drawback is that I cannot throw it all in the wash BUT that isn't really even a problem because I can still take it outside and hose it off and the inner fleece bed can be washed on a delicate cycle. You will not be disappointed in purchasing this carrier - it is stylish AND fully functional.
