Reader’s report: Custom Celltei carrier for Franny the Corgi

I have mentioned Celltei’s custom carriers in the past (they made a gigantic combination wheeled/backpack carrier for a 50 lb. dog, for travel on NYC’s subway system), but I have yet to check them out for myself.

There is a fee of $10 per pet per night, and dogs must be leashed whenever they leave the cabin. Pets are not allowed on the beach or in  … Read more
